Paris Hilton’s hacker steals $130K plus nude photos

A woman who pled guilty to hacking into Parris Hilton' bank accounts and iCloud accounts to steal nude photos and more than $100,000 is scheduled for sentencing Monday.

Between 2015 and 2017, Paytsar Bkhchadzhyan hacked into the accounts of Paris Hilton as well as those of her father Rick Hilton and her sister Nicky Hilton in an attempt to steal passwords and other belongings of Paris, according to court documents which detailed the crimes but did not mention the victims who TMZ identified as Paris Hilton and her family.  

During this time, she managed to steal $130,000 and several nude photos although it is unclear what she did with the material.

Bkhchadzhyan also gained access to Paris's email and impersonated the socialite by instructing Paris's assistant to wire $80,000 to one of Bkhchadzhyan's accounts. The scammer also used Paris's credit cards to make $40,000 reservations for a 2015 New Year's Eve party at Hollywood's Roosevelt Hotel.

Bkhchadzhyan was busted in 2017 and pled guilty to bank fraud conspiracy and prosecutors are recommending she get 57 months in prison for her crimes along with 3 years of supervised release and pay $318,535 in restitutions.
