Woman Sent To Jail Over Returning Pre-Worn Clothes

Buyer beware...

We’ve all thought about doing it, buying something, wearing it and then returning it for a refund. 

But one woman has taken it a few steps too far and is now going to jail for it.

The Zara customer, who is being referred to as Tania M.A., has crossed the wrong shop assistant because she’s now been charged with “continual fraud”.

She removed tags from current Zara stock and placed them on older Zara items from her wardrobe to return and ask for a full refund. 

Catch up on the latest Fitzy & Wippa podcast:

According to news.com.au she has been slapped with a six-month jail term and a lifetime ban from Zara stores in the Aragon region of Spain.

Tania was reportedly carrying out the scam over 15 months and staff members eventually caught onto what she was doing.

The Sun reports that the judge said:

“The fact that both the interior and exterior tags matched and were precisely placed on clothing of similar colour shows the fraudulent mechanism and desire to benefit, so in that way, she renewed her wardrobe at no cost.”

Even though a new wardrobe at no cost is the dream, probably not the best way to go about it. 

Just become an influencer instead.
