Sacramento Man Who Scammed Apple Stores Sentenced, Ordered to Pay Restitution



July 17, 2018 |  

A Sacramento man who pled guilty of a scam on Apple stores was sentenced in federal court today.

Marcus Israel Butler, 33, was sentenced in Sacramento to 41 months in prison and ordered to pay $353,000 in restitution after he entered his plea last December for defrauding Apple by running a debit card scam at stores nationwide. 

According to evidence, Butler traveled to cities in California and throughout the country and attempted to purchase goods on a revoked debit card. After the transaction was rejected, Butler would ask store personnel to call the bank but was actually connected to an associate who provided a false code to complete the transactions. 

Butler was captured in Colorado after attempting a purchase. The estimated losses incurred by Butler's scam totaled more than $353,000.  

This case was the product of an investigation by the United States Secret Service. Assistant United States Attorney Todd A. Pickles prosecuted the case.
