Plastic Surgeon goes CSI to bust Booby bandit!

From NBC comes this story:
"Yvonne Jean Pampellonne, 30, allegedly used a fraudulent identity to pay for liposuction and a breast implant exchange, according to the Huntington Beach Police Department. The total cost of the surgeries is valued at more than $12,000.

The Laguna Niguel woman is accused of opening a line of credit in someone else's name in September 2008, having the procedures and then never showing up for any follow-up appointments, police said."

The plastic surgeon who'd been defrauded for cost of the procedure apparently didn't take this lying down. They hadn't yet disposed of the patients old breast implants (which were exchanged during the procedure) when the fraud was discovered. They used the serial number imprinted on the old implants to track her down to her previous surgeon's office, and identified her via photos from the other office. I love it!

If you would like to "friend" Ms. Pampallone on MySpace, her profile can be found here. Apparently Ms. Pampallone was unfamiliar with as she might have saved herself a multiple felony convictions.
