A Colorado woman was sentenced to 33 months in federal prison for mail fraud and tax evasion related to selling fraudulently obtained items on eBay.
Kristin Martin, 39, of Littleton, Colorado, was also ordered to pay $872,337.68 in restitution for the fraud to her former employer and $161,864 to the IRS for the tax evasion.
According to court records, Martin worked as an executive assistant. She was provided with a unique identification and password to purchase supplies from Staples. Between January 2013 and December 2016, Martin used her identification and password to fraudulently order unauthorized items such as iPads, Apple TVs, Kindles, and other items which she kept and then resold on eBay.
Martin received at least $571,725.61 from the resale of the fraudulently ordered items. She provided her accountant false information regarding the cost of goods sold on eBay and other expenses she did not incur in order to significantly reduce her income tax liability.
