It Can Happen to Anyone

In 2012, an AWOL soldier, Brandon Lee Price, was arrested and charged with stealing the identity of Microsoft cofounder Paul Allen. According to the FBI, Price called Citibank in January of 2012 and changed the address on a bank account of Allen’s from Seattle to Pittsburgh; then a few days later, he requested a new debit card for the account after stating that he had lost his debit card. Price used the card to access Allen’s account and pay off his own outstanding debts.
