“This defendant, who owned a personal shopper business, used legitimate purchases to gain access and then allegedly continued to charge the actor’s credit cards for astronomical sums of money,” District Attorney Melinda Katz said in a statement.

“The defendant thought he was beyond reach and was living out his uber-rich lifestyle fantasies. But my team uncovered the bogus purchases – from the credit card charges being processed by the bank, down to tracking FedEx packages delivered to Syer’s home and business,” Katz continued.
Syer reportedly charged $923,000 to Hart’s credit card without his authorization, according to the press release. Syer also allegedly bought $240,000 worth of watches and jewelry using Hart’s card, the district attorney claimed.
Syer allegedly bought five Patek Phillipe watches valued at more than $400,000, a Sam Friedman painting, over 20 collectible dolls, and two Louis Vuitton bags with the stolen money from Hart.
