Police: ID thief targeted Hilfiger, Cuban

NEW YORK, Dec. 25 (UPI) -- Authorities said a New York man stole tens of thousands of dollars using credit cards taken out in the names of rich and famous men.

A police source said Gregory Mortel, 23, used credit cards in the names of rich men including Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, fashion entrepreneur Tommy Hilfiger and George Hornig, the chief operating officer of investment bank Credit Suisse First Boston, to pay for spa treatments at upscale establishments and other luxuries, the New York Post reported Thursday.

The source said investigators had Hornig call Mortel's cell phone and the suspect said during the call, which was recorded by police, that "nobody will ever be able to trace him to any wrongdoing."

Mortel was arrested in November while receiving a spa treatment at an Equinox gym paid for with an American Express card made out to Tommy Hilfiger.
