Nashville Secret Service agents help catch identity thief
Undercover Secret Service agents in Nashville helped catch a 25-year-old Wisconsin man who was selling stolen credit card numbers through a Web site.
The agents attempted to buy a database of approximately 637,000 stolen credit card numbers with related names and addresses from David Haltinner.
Haltinner was arrested last May and pleaded guilty in October after he used an assumed online identity to sell the stolen credit card numbers, according to the U.S. Department of Justice.
He was sentenced yesterday to serve 50 months in prison for aggravated identity theft and access device fraud, according to the Department of Justice.
