WASHINGTON – It seems no one is immune from credit-card fraud.

The Washington Post’s Al Kamen reports that Chief Justice John Roberts told a Starbucks barista on Thursday he was paying with cash because someone had fraudulently used his credit-card numbers.

The Huffington Post reports that one of their staff members also overheard Roberts telling someone at a local barber shop the same thing, adding the credit-card fraud was traced back to someone in Kentucky.
