Rich men allegedly scammed: drugs, strip clubs, and charges

New York prosecutors accused a strip club manager and four dancers of drugging wealthy men with ketamine and "molly," bringing them to topless clubs, and charging thousands of dollars to their credit cards.

NBC New York reports that investigators say the women were "recruited to stalk doctors, lawyers, and bankers at restaurants, slip drugs into their drinks, including ketamine and 'molly,' and take them to Scores and the Roadhouse NYC Gentlemen's Club in Flushing" at which point the victim's cards were charged.

In total, prosecutors allege that the victims were charged $200,000 between September and December last year. When the victims tried to reverse the charges, the suspects allegedly "sent threatening text messages" warning them against it, NBC New York reports.

Among the alleged victims are a New Jersey cardiologist who was charged more than $100,000, and a Wall Street worker who lost his job because of the expenses racked up on his corporate card, according to NBC New York.
