    Investigators say a credit card for David Duchovny were sent to a South Side home.

    Despite what Citibank might tell you, Ben Stiller and David Duchovny do not live on the South Side.

    According to Chicago Breaking News, a Chicago man was arrested this week for allegedly convincing customers service reps from the bank to send replacement credit cards for a number of Hollywood stars to his South Princeton Avenue home.

    Adedamola Olatunji, 29, was indicted on forgery, mail fraud, theft, aggravated identity theft and computer fraud after running up charges on iTunes and online dating sites, the web site reported.

    Citibank contacted the U.S. Postal Inspection Service after discovering that cards were sent to the home for Stiller, Duchovny and director Paul Haggis.

    Sources say Olatunji was caught when an undercover postal inspector delivered credit cards for movie writer-directors Paul Schrader and Noah Baumbach and he signed for them.

    Investigators say Olatunji admitted to trying to purchase several thousand dollars worth of merchandise to send to a friend in the United Kingdom, the web site reported.
