Only In America: High Bid Of $605K For Coffee With Tim Cook Rejected Because Bidder Used Stolen Credit Card!

From Fortune: You know you're spending too much time tracking a charity auction -- in this case for the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice & Human Rights -- when a $5,000 drop in price feels like big news.

But there I was Monday morning asking the spokesperson for Charitybuzz, which is running the RFK Center's 2013 fundraiser, why the top bid for a chance to have coffee with Apple (AAPL) CEO Tim Cook had fallen from $605,000 Friday night to $600,000 Monday morning. The answer, it turns out, is that the $605,000 bid was made on a stolen credit card.

That must have been a rude surprise for the card holder….
