Four Seasons Resort Palm Beach scam: Javier Roura, Joanna Sanchez skips out on $10,000 tab at hotel

A South Florida couple spent a luxurious night at the Four Seasons Resort Palm Beach, using fake names and a stolen credit card.

The Palm Beach Post (http://bit.ly/XmmOxm ) reports 25-year-old Javier Roura and 28-year-old Joanna Sanchez arrived at the hotel without reservations or luggage on July 3. They said they were tired from traveling so the clerk expedited the check-in process, obtaining a minimal amount of personal information.

Palm Beach police say the couple who identified themselves as Mr. and Mrs. Sebastian Spinel ordered room service, an $800 bottle of whiskey and charged some $8,000 in the hotel's boutique. Their one-night stay cost $10,353.

Police tracked them to Hialeah, where they were arrested Wednesday on multiple charges. Jail records didn't indicate whether they've hired an attorney.
