A southern Kansas man faces up to 11 years in federal prison after admitting he fraudulently obtained more than 60,000 DVD movies at discount prices from the Disney Movie Club.
Forty-seven-year-old Harvey Self of Derby pleaded guilty Wednesday to two counts of filing false tax returns and one count of giving the U.S. Postal Service false names and address for fraudulent purposes.
Self admits he created aliases to qualify for discounts while buying DVD and Blue-ray movies, then resold the movies at a profit. Authorities say the net sales of the movies totaled more than $106,000.
Self also admitted overstating business losses for tax years 2011 and 2012.
Self has told The Associated Press he was just trying to supplement his income so he could support his eight children.
