BOCA RATON, FL ( — Don’t ever underestimate the fraud detection system in place at the Boca Raton Apple Store. Whether a system called “iThinkYouAreUsingAFakeCreditCard” or just smart workers, we have reported several arrests at the store over the past several months.
The latest example: the arrests of 31 year old Tamara Augustin of Pembroke Pines and 20 year old Sherika Elisma of Deerfield Beach. They were taken into custody, police say, after the two wearing matching creme colored outfits tried to buy several Apple products at Boca’s Town Center Mall.
Augustin was charged with two counts of fraud and one count of larceny.
Elisma faces five counts of fraud and one count of larceny.
They were released on bond.
