Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen's identity stolen by AWOL soldier

An AWOL soldier living in Pittsburgh has been charged with stealing the identity of Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen and using his credit card account to make a $658.81 payment on a loan from Armed Forces Bank.
The soldier, Brandon Lee Price, is charged with changing the address on the billionaire's Citibank credit card to Price's home address in Pittsburgh, then phoning in to report the card missing and get a new one sent to the Pittsburgh address, according to a criminal complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Pittsburgh.
On Jan. 13 the card was delivered to Price's address, and the same day charges started appearing on it, the criminal complaint says.
