Linden woman being investigated in Internet handbag scam

FRONT ROYAL — The Warren County Sheriff's Office is investigating a Linden woman in connection with an Internet scam involving designer handbags.

According to an affidavit for a search warrant on file in Circuit Court completed by investigator R.A. Fogle, Kristine Nelson, of 4225 Blue Mountain Road, is under investigation.

Fogle says in the affidavit that the Sheriff's Office received complaints in early March from Michigan resident Methinee Yu, and Daewon Jeon, of Canada, about purchasing handbags from Nelson on eBay, the Internet auction site.

Both Yu, a female, and Jeon, a male, provided documentation of payments to Nelson through an e-mail address of VAGliders, Fogle says. Yu's documentation indicates that nothing was sent to her, Fogle says, adding that Jeon received a handbag, but sent it back to Nelson "as it was not authentic as stated on e-Bay."
