|Counterfeiters used Craigslist to ripoff OC iPhone sellers|
With his 24-year-old co-conspirator Matthew An
, Sam June Kim
operated a three-month, 2012 con game that targeted Craigslist.com
sellers of their personal iPhones
The pair ripped off at least seven Orange County victims, stealing eight iPhones while passing fake, relatively crappy looking $20, $50 and $100 bills to unsuspecting sellers, according to court records.
Earlier this month, U.S. District Court Judge Cormac J. Carney sentenced An to a 12-month prison sentence.
This week, the 29-year-old Kim learned his fate: six months of incarceration.
Both scumbags were also ordered to pay restitution to the victims.
According to federal officials, An is presently "in transit" to prison; Kim remains locked in U.S. Marshal custody inside the Santa Ana Jail.
