By Rebekah Penner ,

It appears it doesn’t pay to try and be Kim Kardashian. Luis Flores, 19, has been sentenced to three and half years in prison after trying to steal Kim Kardashian’s identity.

Wonderwall reports after getting access to Kardashian’s credit cards and social security number, Flores tried to change his accounts into hers. After ordering replacement cards to his address, Flores was discovered.

Kardashian is not the first celebrity Flores has tried to steal from. After gaining access to Kardashian’s mother, Kris Jenner’s accounts, Flores transferred $71,000 from Jenner’s account into his own account, according to
TMZ. Past celebrity victims have also included Vice President, Joe Biden and First Lady, Michelle Obama, as well as actors, Ashton Kutcher, Tom Cruise and Bill Gates.

While Flores heads to life behind bars, Kardashian’s life continues to be a spectacle on television as the ninth season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians debuted Sunday, Jan. 19. This season is set to have a large amount of drama following the separations of Kris and Bruce Jenner, sister, Khloe and Lamar Odom, and Kardashian’s own engagement to rapper, Kanye West.
