In the end, it doesn’t pay to steal from Kim Kardashian. One thief has found this out the hard way after he attempted to steal the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star’s identity and transfer a crapload of money from her account to his – and now he’ll be spending the next few years in federal prison.
Luis Flores, Jr., a 19-year old living in Florida at the time of the offense, was sentenced last week to three and a half years in prison for crimes against Kim Kardashian. Last year, the teenager was able to uncover personal information about Kim, including her social security number and several credit card numbers. After attempting to change the social security number on several of her credit card accounts to his own, Flores was eventually nabbed by Secret Service agents when he ordered replacement credit cards and had them sent to his residence in Florida.Rookie mistake.
While it hasn’t been disclosed how much Flores was able to steal from the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star, TMZ says that he stole over $70,000 from Kim’s mom Kris Jenner.He also targeted several other celebrities, including Bill Gates, Tom Cruise and Ashton Kutcher, who probably had it coming to him anyway – all that bad karma from punking people.
Kim hasn’t released a statement regarding Flores’ sentence, and she probably won’t because hello, she’s got way bigger things to worry about, like her upcoming wedding to Kanye West. She doesn’t have time for petty thieves, even if they did steal $70 grand from her mom – she’ll probably spend more than that on her wedding dress anyway.
Anyway, that’s three whole years that Kim won’t have to worry about Flores’ hacking abilities and apparent affinity for celebrity social security numbers. Three.Whole.Years. Instead, she can focus solely on whether or not Kanye will say something stupid in an interview, or punch random strangers in the face.
So do you think Luis Flores got an appropriate sentence for stealing from Kim Kardashian? Tell us in the comments!
