Ant Loses Identity -- $90,000 Stolen!

12/28/2007 2:17 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

It was no joke for "Celebrity Fit Club" host and "Last Comic Standing" judge Ant, when he was majorly ripped off -- by someone who stole more than $90,000 from him using fake checks. Merry Christmas!


TMZ caught the comedian leaving his apartment last night, where he confirmed he was the victim of identity theft by someone who found out his account number. TMZ has learned that the perpetrator then went on a six-day shopping spree, spending more than $12,000 in a day at Neiman Marcus alone! Just like an Olsen!

Ant's cash was also spent at Bloomingdales and Macy's -- and used to purchase airline tickets. An investigation is ongoing.

It was his former boyfriends personal assistant or at least that is what I gathered from watching those video blogs. Jodi something or other. You all are a bunch of A$$HOLES for some of the hatred you spew.

At least it won't be difficult to catch the culprit or culprits. I mean, going on a shopping spree in a lavish store with (I imagine) a security camera or two, and then purchasing airline tickets... the tickets have to be in someone's name, right? Someone's going to have to go through security at an airport in order to use the tickets; that'd be my first stop.

Identity theft is a criminal offense that affects almost 10 million Americans in one year! Popsquire's best wishes go out to him.

That's terrible. The poor little guy needs a hug. But seriously folks, this is a big problem if you have more than $1.00 to your name. I personally would love to see these types having their balls ripped off and shoved down their screaming throats and split from crotch to sternum whilst scooping out their steaming guts and jamming them down their ho-mother's protesting-gimmee mouths But I digress, There must be more to this story, or is he that stupid? I personally can account for every dollar I saved and/or invested.
