A cashier with a photographic memory used his special talent to memorize 1,300 credit cards to use for nefarious purposes, police say.

Yuske Taniguchi was arrested for using his photographic memory to memorize the names, credit card numbers and expiration dates of credit cards belonging to 1,300 customers at his part time job at Tokyo mall.

Japan Today reports that Taniguchi, 34, then used the credit card information to finance his basic living expenses and purchase luxury items online.

Police were tipped off after Taniguchi purchased a pair of shoulder bags totaling over $2,500, and had the bags delivered to his apartment.

A search of his apartment turned up a notebook containing names and numbers that police are using to investigate the credit card fraud.

According to Japan Today, readers were amazed by Taniguchi's talent, but they wondered why he didn't put his skill to better use.
