Fla. Woman Accused of Selling Phony IPhones In Identity Theft Scam
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - A Palm Coast woman is accused of selling phony Apple iPhones online, then stealing the identities of her customers.
Mary Losito was arrested on charges of money laundering and scheming to defraud, plus three counts of criminal use of personal identification. She remained in Flagler County jail on Saturday on a combined $30,000 bail.
Investigators watched Losito 5 months before arresting her Wednesday.
The 23-year-old allegedly bought knockoff iPhones for $30 apiece from a Chinese wholesaler, then sold them for $350 each on eBay, Craigslist and her own Web site, called www.keepingcooldeals.com.
Flagler County Sheriff's investigators say Losito had swindled her own neighbor out of $61,000.
