According to a document received May 30, American Express received two calls about Kutcher’s account.

The caller then requested that the primary account phone number be changed to Flores’ number. They also requested that an emergency replacement card be sent to an address in Oak Park, Illinois.

In the second call, the caller requested to change Kutcher’s social security number to Flores’.
