The Orlando Sentinel reports that Fredrick Lewis of Fort Lauderdale has been sentenced to three years in federal prison for buying more than $60,000 in resort reservations and park tickets at Universal Orlando with stolen credit cards.
Between March 2018 and June 2020, Lewis spent approximately $62,300 on vacation packages at the resort using the credit cards of 36 people. These packages were booked via Universal’s call center through the use of over a dozen different phone numbers.
The booked packages would either be used by Lewis or exchanged for gift cards from Universal. In addition to his prison sentence, Lewis must pay approximately $30,780 in restitution to Universal for the damages caused.
