NY Postman Charged With Stealing 7,000 Coupons And Selling Them On eBay
Citing pressure from an impending foreclosure, a Queens postal worker stole thousands of retail-store coupons before they were mailed out — and sold them at a discount on eBay, cops said yesterday. Thomas Tang, 38, of Baldwin, Long Island, allegedly pilfered more than 7,000 coupons from JCPenney, Kohl’s and Lowe’s and sold them in batches on the Internet auction site. Working out of the Corona branch, Tang told investigators that he netted roughly $35,000 from the sale of JCPenney coupons between October 2009 and January of this year.
