UPI News Service, 07/24/2005 

New Jersey police say a woman posed as an assistant to singer/actress Jessica Simpson and scammed a slew of expensive swag she planned on selling on eBay.

Courtney Handel, 23, was caught before she had time to post pictures of the panties, shoes and jewelry on the Internet auction site, the New York Post reported Sunday.

Police said the former public relations intern allegedly set up a phony e-mail account using the name of Simpson's assistant and wrote to top designers saying: "Jessica just loves your products."

Police found more than $12,000 worth of goods in Handel's East Rutherford, N.J., home Friday. She was charged with third-degree fraud by deception.

A security agent for Sony, Simpson's record label, uncovered the scam.
