You know all those ads you see everywhere for services that protect you against identity theft and watch your credit score and things in general just to make sure you are not the victim of a crime? Well, as much time as Courtney Love spends on the internet you would have thought she would have seen them. Apparently not, because Courtney is once again saying that people have been ripping her off for years and stealing all of her money and she didn't even know it.
In response to the suit American Express filed against her for $350,000 in unpaid charges, Courtney's lawyer says that none of the charges were from Courtney. Not the Spelling For Dummies book or the Xanax prescriptions. None of it. Instead it was the work of organized crime who managed to take out 104 AMEX cards all in Courtney's name or the name of one of her companies. Apparently this has been going on for years. Umm, then why didn't she say something to American Express years ago? Don't you think that when the first bills started coming in for cars and what not that you would look out your front door and say, “You know, I do a lot of drugs, but I really don't remember buying a Smart Car.”
The thing is, Courtney said the same thing about six months ago and said that people had been stealing millions of dollars from her using her name and Kurt Cobain's name and so she was going to try and get it all back. Is she doing her own accounting? I'm pretty sure that unless her accountant is also her drug dealer, that they probably can identify a bunch of false charges.
On the other hand I wouldn't put it past Courtney to have 104 personalities and taken out a card in each name. I think she just doesn't want to admit she bought crap like what she is wearing in the picture.
