Identity Thief TRAILER (2012) – Jason Bateman, Melissa McCarthy.
A comedy centered on a man and the woman who steals his identity.
The New York Post Reports:
Foxy Brown‘s brother Gavin Marchand is headed to prison after pleading guilty yesterday to a credit card scheme in which he and three associates attempted to use a forged credit card to buy nearly $8,000 of merchandise from a Hermes store on Madison Ave. in New York last year.
Gavin Marchand, 36, pleaded guilty to two counts of first degree identity theft. He’d been busted in Aug. 2010 when he tried to use an obviously bogus MasterCard to buy clothes at the fancy French boutique.
An undercover street crime unit cop was doing surveillance in the store at the time — and lit out after Marchand and three of his buddies when they fled the store.
Cops said the foursome led cops on a 90-mile-an-hour chase before finally pulling over.
Marchand is currently free on bail and is scheduled to turn himself in on September 28th, when he will be be sentenced to two and a year to five years in prison.
Sony’s investigations over the past week determined that an “unauthorized person” has obtained users’ names, home addresses, e-mail addresses, birth dates and passwords, according to a statement being sent to all account holders.”
While there is no evidence at this time that credit card data was taken, we cannot rule out the possibility,” said Sony Computer Entertainment and Sony Network Entertainment, which manage the two services, in a joint statement.The hacker could have taken credit card numbers, card expiration dates, billing addresses, answers to security questions and purchase history, but not credit-card security codes, they said.
Sony is encouraging customers “to protect against possible identity theft or other financial loss” by reviewing credit-card statements.
The company also suggested that some customers may want to place a “fraud alert” with credit bureaus.
The attack has crippled Sony’s PlayStation Network, which has some 70 million subscribers and has been down since Wednesday.
The network lets customers download video games from the Web and play against each other online.
Sony did not say how many accounts had been compromised.
A spokeswoman declined to comment Tuesday.
