Default "Show Me the Money!" Billionaire Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen has identity stolen

Microsoft co-founder Allen has Identity Stolen
AWOL soldier in federal custody after trying to access Paul Allen's bank account
PHILADELPHIA An AWOL soldier's simple scheme to defraud one of the richest men in the world has landed him in federal custody, according to a criminal complaint.

In the complaint unsealed Monday, federal investigators allege Brandon Lee Price changed the address on a bank account held by billionaire Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen, then had a debit card sent to his Pittsburgh home so he could use it for payments on a delinquent Armed Forces Bank account and personal expenses. Price called Citibank in January and changed the address on an account held by Allen from Seattle to Pittsburgh, then called back three days later to say he had lost his debit card and asked for a new one to be sent to him, an FBI investigator wrote in a criminal complaint filed in February.

The card was used to attempt a $15,000 Western Union transaction and make a $658.81 payment on the Armed Forces Bank loan account the day it was activated, according to the complaint. Surveillance footage also captured him attempting purchases at a video game store and a dollar store, authorities alleged. (to read more: Click Here)

He will more than likely serve a term with the the cops in jail and then another with the Army. Double jeopardy is alive and well in the armed forces. What an idiot.

>> What an idiot - gloozit <<

No kidding... some people will go to any lengths and do just about anything for the love of unearned money.

Check out what this kooky unemployed Austrian man did - cutting off his own foot with a Mitre Saw; just so he could continue receiving jobless benefits! (Click here: to Read the Related News Articles here and here)

When I first read this story I thought it was a gag or something - but it turns out to be absolutely true!

Good Luck! -- COMP
