Christopher Dwan Underwood, a retired Air Force master sergeant, was sentenced to two years in prison today (April 17) for stealing government credit cards and personal identifying information from service members.

According to United States Attorney records, Underwood would use his Air Force privileges to get into military gymnasiums. There, he would steal the cards and identity information from gym bags, clothing, lockers and the like. Then, using addresses, birth dates, and Social Security numbers, he would activate victims' credit cards and pose as the person from whom he stole the information.

He made hundreds of purchases for tens of thousands of dollars, and dined at San Diego's finest restaurants.

One of my neighbors in SC is a retired Marine gunny. In his 60's. One of the nicest guys I know but not just tough as nails, but tougher. I guarantee if he knew this guy he could and would kick his dumb ass all over SD.

danfogel: It was definitely risky identity theft. And he did get caught. Best, Don Bauder
