Later on, con man Johnny Stewart, who got a job at the Dynasty Card Company as a mailroom clerk is introduced to Keith by his supervisor Chris Fields, revealing Keith is the head of security for the credit card firm.

After that, Johnny gives Keith the cards he asked for and Keith shows him the ring with cars and boats bought with the stolen cards, and has Johnny buys some stuff for himself, while warning that if Johnny screws him over, he'll kill him. After a while Johnny comes to his senses and says to Keith he wants out. As Keith respects his decision, he turns the tables but having the stolen cards become illegal, which is seen when Seymour attempts to buy a ring, but the card rings up stolen.

Walsh, who lectures Johnny about not having his life together. Keith recovers and shoots Walsh in the arm and holds Seymour at gunpoint and takes him into a car where they try to escape.
