Kim Kardashian may be one of the most famous reality stars on television these days and she is loaded with money from the E! network and from endorsement deals. In addition, she is dating Kanye West, who has plenty of money in his bank account as well. So, it sounds like she is the ideal victim for someone who wants to steal money from her. According to a new Wetpaint Entertainment report published on Feb. 3, Kim Kardashian was the victim of an identity theft scheme.

Apparently, Kim is the victim of people who were trying to steal her identity to get some money from her bank account. A Florida teen, Luis Flores, Jr., has been convicted of credit card fraud and aggravated identity theft and sentenced to three and a half years in federal prison. And apparently, his mother, Kyah Green, was also involved in the fraud and identity theft.

And Kim isn’t the only victim. Paris Hilton, Joe Biden, Michelle Obama, Bill Gates, and Beyoncé were also potential victims. The plan was to steal thousands of dollars from the stars’ bank accounts. He gained access to the stars’ social security numbers and credit card numbers, and he got replacement cards sent to his home. He managed to get $71,251.99 before getting caught.

What do you think of his daring move?
