Hackers plunder Hilton 'HHonors' rewards points, go on shopping spree

Question

Forgive my naivety, but I've always wondered, once an account has been hacked like this, what next?

I mean, you've got someone else's points but surely you run a high risk of getting caught when you try and cash them out? I'm assuming it'll be you wanting that fancy hotel room for free, or you who will be wanting that high-value giftcard? Are there no verifications on names and/or addresses?

Re: Gonna end in tears

I agree with the OP's sentiment - he's going to get paid regardless of what he does.

Maybe a better description is that he has to do "just enough" in his first year, and then he gets a huge chunk of change in his paypacket as his first tranche of shares vest.
