A Greensboro woman has pleaded guilty to scamming home-shopping network QVC out of more than $412,000 by exploiting a glitch in its Web site.
Authorities say Quantina Moore-Perry did not pay for more than
1,800 items she received from QVC between March and November 2005.
Moore-Perry ordered handbags, housewares, jewelry and electronics, then immediately canceled the orders and received credit for them. But authorities say the glitch caused the items to still be delivered to Moore-Perry, who subsequently sold them on eBay.
Pennsylvania-based QVC became aware of the problem after being
contacted by two people who bought the items on the online auction
Moore-Perry pleaded guilty Thursday in federal court to wire fraud and was released pending sentencing. She agreed to forfeit her profits from the scam.
