Magic!

  1. 1. Logan Hermanns Mr. Curtiss Journalism and Business Writing September 6, 2012 It’s Like Magic! Harry Levy of Lexington was sentenced to two years in prison for fraud in April this year. He stole $560,000 from a long time customer. Levy has also been sentenced to two years of probation and was ordered to pay full restitution. Prosecutors are saying that Levy tried to cover up the fraud by lying to federal investigators and submitting false record to the grand jury. Levy made 134 charges to the wealthy customer’s credit card, forcing the victim to sell his house and making the task of financing a new business very difficult. The lesson learned here? Be careful where you spend money. Unknowing people can have their lives destroyed. Thus, when students go elsewhere for the weekend or for a sports trip, they should take care where they spend money and keep all receipts. “Magic shop owner sentenced for making $560,000 disappear from customer’s credit card account” Associated Press September 7, 2012
