Burien Woman Sentenced For Indiana Supermarket Fraud
According to the Associated Press, Carima Jansen of Burien has been sentenced to 13 months in federal prison for defrauding an Evansville, Indiana-based grocery store chain of about $44,000 by hacking into its computer system.
Jansen, 32, was sentenced Thursday (Sept. 11th) after pleading guilty to “aiding in the interstate transport of stolen funds” from the grocery chain, called Wesselman’s Supermarkets.
Investigators say the supermarket’s computer system was hacked in September 2007, allowing Jansen access to their bank account User ID and Password.
Apparently, Jansen electronically transferred funds from the grocery’s account to one she opened using a counterfeit passport from Denmark.
