SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — Prosecutors say a woman has been charged with identity theft after manufacturing Mickey Mouse business cards and selling fake Disneyland tickets.

KNTV reports (http://bit.ly/1Sq0dWC) Friday that Santa Clara County Deputy District Attorney Jennifer Deng says 22-year-old Jennifer Anne Cardema sold the tickets to at least 14 people and now also faces grand theft and aggravated crime enhancements in connection with defrauding people of more than $100,000.

It was not known Friday if Cardema has an attorney.

Over two years, Cardema pretended that she was an employee of Disney who could sell discounted annual passes and hotel rooms. She tricked her customers by creating a false LinkedIn page, fake Disneyland emails and even printed fake Mickey Mouse business cards.

In several cases, families traveled to Disney properties and found their passes were not valid and their hotel rooms were not booked.
