Apple Store employee charged with stealing nearly $1 million in gift cards

An Apple Store employee has been charged with using stolen credit card numbers to buy $997,000 in Apple gift cards, NBC reports. An investigation into charge-backs Apple began receiving on the gift card purchases led authorities to Ruben Profit, who told police he was paid $200 for each $2,000 Apple gift card he purchased with the stolen credit card information. When arrested, Profit was allegedly in possession of seven Apple gift cards worth $2,000 each and 51 Visa and American Express gift cards that had been fraudulently re-encoded with stolen credit card information. Profit has been charged with grand larceny among other crimes, and if convicted, could face up to 15 years in prison.
