Nouel Alba has been arrested for lying to federal investigators, but that may be just the tip of the iceberg of her crimes.
Prosecutors say Alba solicited donations to the "Funeral Fund" of Noah Pozner, one of the victims of Newtown, Connecticut's Sandy Hook school shooting.
The problem is, Alba has absolutely no relation to the late Noah and as far as anyone in his family knows, no plans to help them with funeral or any other costs!
Of course, Alba denies ever posing as Noah's aunt or asking for any money, but is it true?
Using a tragedy victim's name to scam money from kindhearted people? How deplorable can you get!!
Alba faces up to five years in federal prison for her crimes, in addition to a maximum fine of $250,000.
