NJ woman claims identity theft to avoid online gambling debt

Posted: Updated:
New Jersey State Police have charged a Jackson, N.J. woman with theft by deception, when she attempted to fool authorities by claiming that someone had stolen her identity, using it to create an online gaming account, and racked up gambling and banking fees totaling almost $10,000.

Authorities began to investigate a complaint back in January, from Diana Zolla, 31, of Jackson Twp., alleging someone has used her maiden name to create an online gambling account. Zolla stated that her identity was stolen, and that the gambling debt of $9,565 did not belong to her.

After further investigation, authorities revealed that Zola was responsible for creating the fraudulent account.

Zola was arrested and charged with theft by deception, a 3rd degree crime. She was released pending a mandatory appearance at Atlantic County Superior Court.
