Virginia Beach woman gets 12 years for what could be biggest coupon scheme in U.S. history

So we know there are a lot of scammers out here in the world but this one is historic. It was described in court papers as possibly the biggest counterfeit coupon scheme in history, costing about 100 retailers and manufacturers more than $31 million in losses.

So Lori Ann Villanueva Talens  from Virgina Beach was sentenced to 12 years after pleading guilty to fraud. Evidently she was designing and printing these high quality realistic looking coupons from her home computer for years. The coupons were so realistic that it took counterfeit coupon experts to confirm they were phony.

The prosecutor said the only thing suspicious about them was the discount amount printed on them. In most cases they would get the item for free or in some instances the coupon exceeded the  item’s value, and retailers had to end up paying the shopper for “purchasing” the item.

Her husband played a part in all of this and was sentenced to seven years and three months for his role.
