Female White-Collar Crime Divas-Mordern Day Thieves
Today’s CrimeDiva, Rose Mary Panezich, 62, of Austintown, Ohio was convicted in a scheme of obtaining footballs, posters, sports cards, and other sports memorabilia, then forging the names of professional athletes. Ms. Panezich was sentenced to probation and one year on an electronic monitor on house arrest. [It sounds like Ms. Panezich was given a great opportunity].
According to records, certificates of authenticity were also forged to accompany the memorabilia, which were sold on eBay. The money made from the sales was allegedly laundered through bank accounts belonging to other people. Over 25,000 people were scammed out of more than $2 million.
Ms. Panezich pleaded guilty to engaging in a pattern of corrupt activity. Unfortunately, Ms. Panezich had a son involved in this crime. Ms. Panezich violated probation, and was arrested for lying to local authorities and FBI investigators asking about her son, and others.
