Kansas Man Indicted in Movie Fraud Scheme

KSAL StaffAugust 20, 2014

Federal prosecutors say they have indicted a Derby man who created dozens of false identities so he could buy discounted DVD and Blue-ray movies and then resell them.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office said Wednesday that 45-year-old Harvey C. Self is charged with nine counts of mail fraud, one count of money laundering and two counts of tax fraud.

No attorney was listed for him in court records.

The government alleges Self used the bogus identities to join the Disney Movie Club and Columbia House DVD Club, then resold the movies on eBay and Amazon. Postal inspectors identified 28 different mailing addresses used in the scheme at post offices or commercial carrier boxes in 15 south-central Kansas communities.

Investigators seized 2,833 DVDs and Blu-ray discs from his home.
