AT&T, T-Mobile Handset Crime Ring Broken Up

A court in New York handed down indictments of eight people accused of taking part in a $22 million handset scam.

Prosecutors say two of the perps – who happen to operate cellular stores in Florida and New York – took customer information and impersonated those people to order handsets. Then they allegedly bribed delivery truck drivers to intercept the new phones on their way to their destinations.

The suspects also are accused of making insurance claims for handsets that were supposedly broken. They were authorized dealers of AT&T and T-Mobile phones.
