Dude. Those Dell Discounts Were Fake.

March 26, 2014 - News

A Missouri man will be sentenced in June for his role in a scheme that involved creating fake discounts on Dell products, and then reselling the equipment.

Herbie Morrow is a former Dell employee who recently pled guilty to federal fraud and conspiracy charges in Tennessee. He admitted to conspiring with another former Dell worker to use Dell's corporate computers to create the phony discounts, according to multiple reports.

Morrow further admitted to accessing Dell websites to use the fake discounts to buy more than $293,000 worth of products at reduced prices, or for free, before reselling them, the Austin Business Journal reported. (Dell is based in central Texas)

Morrow will be sentenced on June 9. His alleged accomplice, Marcus Culver of Nashville, Tenn., is awaiting his trial.
