Back at the end of 2017, we posted a tale about a shopping spree gone wild. Mellie Lee of the TLC Show the Gypsy Sisters defrauded Toys R Us and Babies R Us out of $18,000 in gift cards. You can read more about that HERE. One shopping trip police say she used over 100 fraudulent coupons that duped the Toys R Us staff into thinking they were genuine coupons for Visa gift cards. She walked out with $1,700 in gift cards on that trip alone!
The update is in: she pleaded guilty last week to theft and forgery charges in Kentucky. Mellie Lee and her now ex-husband could face up to 8 years in jail and $26,000 in restitution.
