Kim Kardashian

Identity Thief Sentenced to Prison

2/1/2014 12:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0131-kim-kardashian-luis-floresThe man who stole Kim Kardashian's identity and tried to transfer thousands of dollars from her bank accounts has been sentenced to 3 1/2 years in federal prison ... TMZ has learned.

Luis Flores, Jr. gained access to Kim's personal information, including credit card and social security numbers and then changed some of her accounts to his personal accounts.  

Flores also victimized Kris Jenner.  Flores was able to get a total of $71K transferred from Jenner's account to his, but it's unclear how much he got from Kim.

Flores ordered replacement cards to his address, and that's how he was nabbed. 

Flores didn't just stop at Kim and Kris.  He also stole the IDs of Robert Mueller, former Director of the FBI, Ashton Kutcher, Tom Cruise, Joe Biden, Michelle Obama, Bill Gates and others.

another rocket scientist. who is that stupid to order new credit cards using an assumed name and use your real address. Again, only in LALA land would he only get such a short sentence. Give him 20 years and others will think twice about stealing someones identity.

my 2 cents    

As long as there is an internet hackers will continue to hack. As long as banks and credit companies continue to outsource work (call centers) to third world countries, identity theft will continue . As long as you can give the imbecile at the call center the information they request, they don't care about possible theft.

To pull this off, this little Nad Whacker def has some smarts. Too bad the little criminal could not have used it to make himself an icon instead of a convict.

This story has a lot more meat! He's 19 and lived at home with his mom, who also profited.


Some snippets from the story on Orlando Sentinel.com


"At the time, Flores was already facing criminal charges in state court, where he was accused of taking private information from a coworker's personnel profile and having his colleague's paycheck directly deposited into his own bank account."


" authorities uncovered other fraudulent activity linking Flores to financial accounts owned by actor Ashton Kutcher, U.S. Marshals Service Director Stacia Hylton, and reality star Paris Hilton."


"On June 24, agents searched Flores and Green's apartment and found a flash drive that contained Social Security numbers, bank and credit card accounts and credit reports for all of the victims in the case, as well as Vice President Joe Biden, First Lady Michelle Obama, Bill Gates, Beyonce Knowles and other politicians.

Agents said the information came from a website launched by hackers last year.

But even after agents searched their apartment, court records said, Flores did not halt his scheme.

Agents said Flores called American Express on July 25 and tried to access the accounts of Tom Cruise, Gates and Kutcher, using each of their Social Security numbers."
