A New Jersey woman has been charged with theft by deception after she claimed to have had her identity stolen after losing $9,565 in gambling fees at New Jersey's new cyber casinos.
Diana Zolla was charged with the crime after New Jersey law enforcement wrapped up a three month investigation. Zolla racked up the huge charges, and then claimed that the fees were incurred when somebody stole her maiden name to gamble online.
However, with New Jersey's strict Know Your Customer process for online gambling, police were able to determine that the transactions were actually Zolla herself by tracking her location, bank transaction, and casino gaming data.
