Man Arrested in Disney Credit Sting
ORLANDO SENTINEL -- (July 16, 2007) A Wisconsin man was arrested in connection with illegally trying to sell the credit card information of some Disney video customers, authorities said.
In letters dated July 6, Walt Disney Co. told some members of its mail-order movie club that their credit card information was found with a suspect arrested in a federal undercover sting.
A copy of the letter was obtained by the Orlando Sentinel. It is not immediately known how many customers were involved.
David Haltinner, 25, of Wisconsin was arrested in the case in May and faces a federal felony charge of access-device fraud, the Sentinel reported.
Disney told its customers that the suspect in the case worked at Alta Resources Inc., which processes credit card orders for the movie club.
It does not appear the credit card information was used for purchases or offered to anyone other than investigators, according to Disney's letter. However, the letter still urged movie club members to review their financial records.
Disney Movie Club customers can order films from Disney's Buena Vista Home Entertainment unit, whose titles include 'Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen,' 'Lizzie McGuire,' and 'High School Musical.'
Messages left by The Associated Press with Buena Vista Home Entertainment and Alta Resources Inc. were not immediately returned Sunday.
