     Costa Mesa man guilty of identity theft
Federal jury finds that he targeted the Vietnamese community by phoning credit-card companies and fraudulently asking for replacement cards that were intercepted.
LOS ANGELES – A Costa Mesa man has been convicted of identity theft and other federal crimes for his role in a credit-card fraud scheme that targeted members of the Vietnamese community.
Hung Van Tieu, 62, was found guilty by a federal jury last week of conspiracy, two counts of credit-card fraud and aggravated identity theft.
He now faces between two and 32 years in federal prison at his sentencing on Jan. 30 by United States District Judge Manuel Real.
Some of the crimes were committed while Tieu was out on bail after he was charged in a similar case in Riverside Superior Court.
Evidence presented during a three-day trial showed that Tieu and other members of the scheme phoned credit-card issuers, impersonated Vietnamese cardholders and asked the credit-card companies to send replacement cards to the victims' real billing addresses.
The credit cards were then intercepted before they could be delivered to the legitimate cardholders, according to federal prosecutors.
Tieu used the stolen credit cards to withdraw thousands of dollars in cash at the Bellagio, MGM Grand and Mandalay Bay hotels in Las Vegas, prosecutors said. He also purchased more than $100,000 in luxury goods, including Rolex watches and items at Chanel, Louis Vuitton and Burberry stores across Southern California and in Las Vegas.
Tieu was sentenced earlier this year to 16 months in state prison by a Riverside County Superior Court Judge after he pleaded guilty to credit-card fraud stemming from an arrest in September 2010.
Tony Khac Nguyen, 41, of Westminster -- another person involved in the scheme -- was sentenced last month to 51 months in federal prison.
The case against Tieu and Nguyen was part of an investigation by the Los Angeles Identity Theft and Economic Crimes Task Force, which is funded by the United States Postal Inspection Service and is staffed by Postal Inspectors and agents from the United States Secret Service.
