$50,000 worth of breast implants, tummy tucks funded by identity theft

Posted: Updated:

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - When some central Florida women wanted plastic surgery they couldn't afford, police say they turned to a 28-year-old woman who used stolen IDs to cover the expenses.
    
Orlando police Detective Todd Herb tells the Orlando Sentinel (http://bit.ly/1VUu5zz ) that Terilyn Riggins ran the crime ring, scamming more than $50,000 worth of breast implants, tummy tucks or dental work. She was arrested March 29. It's not clear whether she has a lawyer.
    
Herb says they've arrested 14 women and identified at least 12 theft victims.
    
Police say the women were either friends of Riggins or met her in jail. Some paid her a small fee. Others offered services such as doing her hair or cooking for her in exchange for surgeries.
    
Officials say it was a full-time job for Riggins to set up the fraudulent accounts.

    KHQ.COM - Most mothers can only hope by the time their children grow up and move out of the house, they've learned all the necessary things to be a successful adult, including the basic knowledge that a turkey must be cooked in an oven, or perhaps in a smoker...
