Florida Mom Busted After Sticker Switching Scam - as part of the news series by GeoBeats.
Mommies gone wild? A 34-year old Florida mom was arrested and charged after scamming several retail stores out of children’s toy sets. She reportedly switched labels from cheap items and placed the low priced sticker on high ticket toys. The woman would typically purchase Lego kits for less than $10, when the purchase price was actually over a $100. Police state that for 18 months, she visited 3 to 4 stores a day and sold her illegal purchases on eBay. Law enforcement officials claim that the lady would sometimes make $30,000 per month from the scheme and she now faces felony charges along with a possible deportation to her native Chile.
In another incident of illegal motherly actions, an over-achieving mom in Pennsylvania is now facing charges for hacking into the computer system of her children's school to read emails and change her kids' grades. 45 year old Catherine Vensuto has been charged with three separate counts of unlawful use of a computer and three counts of altering data and computer trespassing.
