Lori Ann Villanueva Talens, 41, was ordered to repay $31.8million to retailers that she defrauded with fake coupons that she sold to a network of shoppers online

Talens got 12 years in prison on Sept. 14 after she pleaded guilty to mail fraud, wire fraud and welfare fraud; her husband Pacifico Talens Jr., 43, got 87 months

Fake coupons with a collective value of $1 million were found in 'every crevice' of her home when a warrant was executed

She designed and printed coupons at home and sold them to a network she amassed on social media sites using the name 'MasterChef'

The FBI said she was 'able to create a coupon for almost any grocery or drugstore product, and able to make it for whatever value off she wanted'

'She had coupons for $24.99 off a $25 box of diapers. And it would work... you壇 have people walking out the door with those diapers for almost nothing'

Talens used the profits to pay for vacations, lavish dinners, a new kitchen, sunroom and in-ground swimming pool, the FBI said

In addition to the coupon scheme, the fraudster got $43,000 in benefits from the Supplemental Nutrition a*sistance Program and Medicaid

A Virginia woman who was convicted of selling nearly $32 million in counterfeit coupons and using her ill-gotten gains to pay for home renovations and luxury vacations was sentenced to 12 years in prison

Lori Ann Villanueva Talens, 41, shipped tens of thousands of coupons she designed and printed at home to a network of more than 2,000 customers she amassed on social media sites like Facebook and Telegram using the name 'MasterChef.'

Fake coupons with a collective value of $1 million were found in 'every crevice' of the Virginia Beach home she shared with her husband, Pacifico Talens Jr., when a warrant was executed for their arrest.

'There were coupons in every jacket pocket; they were stuffed in her vehicles,' according to Postal Inspector Jason Thomasson.

About 100 companies, including Procter & Gamble, Coca-Cola and Ziploc, were victimized by the 'counterfeit coupon empire' - paper products company Kimberly-Clark was the hardest hit, with nearly $9 million lost to the scheme.

The FBI also found designs to create coupons for more than 13,000 different products on Talens computer.

After reviewing the designs of the 'Frankenstein' coupons - which combined elements of legitimate ones - and comparing them with counterfeit coupons in circulation, they determined she was responsible for $31,817,997 in losses.



Prosecutors said that she 'perfected the art' of counterfeiting coupons, and was able to 'create [coupons] virtually indistinguishable from genuine [ones].'

The majority of her forgeries offered deals equal to - or even greater than - the value of the merchandise. In cases where the discount exceeded the item's price, retailers had to pay customers from their registers for 'purchasing' them.

'Coupon fraud is not a harmless crime. Lori Ann Talens and her husband operated an audacious fraud scheme that stole more than $31 million directly from retailers and manufacturers,' said Brian Dugan, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI痴 Norfolk Field Office.

However, Talens' attorney Lawrence Woodward Jr. argued that his client should get a lighter sentence because she gave authorities information about the 'rather murky world of counterfeit couponing' in interviews and identified other counterfeiters.

With a background in marketing and strong computer design skills, the FBI said, she was 'able to create a coupon for almost any grocery or drugstore product, and able to make it for whatever value off she wanted.'

'She had coupons for $24.99 off a $25 box of diapers. And it would work,' said Thomasson. 'And you壇 have people walking out the door with those diapers for almost nothing.'

With the savings from her coupons and the proceeds from their sale, Talens paid for vacations, shopping trips and dinners out for herself and her family. The profits also bought her a new kitchen, sunroom and in-ground swimming pool.

Over three years, Talens was paid $400,000 by her subscribers between April of 2017 and May of 2020, an amount that the FBI said was determined through a 'painstaking' review of thousands of transactions through payment apps and virtual currency wallets.

She would ship the fraudulent coupons via the United States Postal Service. The racket was discovered after a member of Talens' secret network - which participants could only join after they'd sent along a copy of their photo ID and some kind of proof that they had used fake coupons before - reported her to the Coupon Information Corporation, an agency dedicated to coupon integrity.

After years of building his legacy in music and entrepreneurship, Jay-Z痴 got more than a few people that look up to him.

Some of his fans are artists themselves, and at this point, it痴 not a shock when artists say Hov is their favorite rapper or that he痴 in their top five favorite rappers. Fellow rapper Jeezy spoke about his respect for Jay-Z in a Wednesday promo clip for his upcoming episode on TV One痴 Uncensored.

In the four-minute clip, the 鏑eave You Alone rapper spoke about different moments he痴 had with the Brooklyn native.

From riding in the car with him in New York and Jay-Z telling him that despite growing up in New York, he痴 never been to Central Park, to recalling how Jay-Z was there for him but his label wasn稚 after his team got locked up due to an 妬ncident. These two moments and more are why Jeezy can say, 的 really rock with him.

Quote:

After touching on the two previously mentioned moments he said, 鄭 lot of people don稚 know we done been in some fistf*ghts and everything.

Without going into too much detail, he said, 鉄ome things popped off in Vegas, and proceeded to give Hov his credit for sticking beside him in the brawl. 的 got to say Hov got hands, because me and him was getting down, he said, giving him his props. 展e was back to back.
Quote:

Jeezy, 44, also recalled hearing Jay-Z痴 a*sistant telling him to get in the car but he replied 的 ain稚 leaving Jeezy. Jeezy continued to elaborate on why he has so much respect for Jay-Z and says it has to do with his 鍍ough skin.

擢or me, I just respect somebody who has enough respect for themselves not to lose their integrity to please people. That痴 the biggest thing I see in him.
Jeezy痴 填ncensored episode aired Sunday, Oct. 24, at 10 p.m.

#15  [Health] anyone drank pure garlic?

12 people viewing this

@misc      By Dreamcast      32 mins ago

i was huge on juicing when i found out about it

i was trying everything.. to the point where i juiced things like a potato, an onion, and even garlic


if you've drank garlic i'd like to hear your experience

for me it was pretty much horrible but i did it a number of times

its hard to put into words how hard it is to drink pure garlic

i remember one time i did it, i drank a little more than normal and i almost barfed

in my experience u can only really drink a little at a time, u can try to gulp it really fast but if u do.. like i said u might barf

juicing it makes your whole place smell like garlic.. i recommend juicing it outside if u can.. then putting all ur stuff in the dishwasher immediately

anyway.. drinking it burns.. u feel it going all the way down

and of course the smell stays with u for a while

and the taste is HORRENDOUS

but the reason i kept doing it was because of this inexplicable feeling it gave me

i don't fully know how to describe it.. u just feel like "stronger" or something

and another thing is, it pretty much cleans u out.. if u drink it, u are likely going to end up on the toilet eventually and u walk away feeling like the garlic cleaned the pipes or something

again- maybe i can't explain it perfectly but i've juiced enough to know when something has a strong effect.. and garlic definitely does

u might burp soon after drinking it and also feel warmer

i recommend trying it, but if u do- don't just try it.. TURN YOUR CAMERA ON.. record your face when you drink it because it will probably be lit to watch on youtube because it is just unbelievably gross

but anyway.. drinking garlic imo gives u like somewhat of a high.. not like a real high but.. it just boosts u and renews u and wakes u up and stuff.. u have to try it to see what im talking about
