A New York City man has been charged with hacking into 59 Wegmans Food Market customer accounts and placing $10,000 in fraudulent orders.
According to the Department of Justice, Maurice Sheftall, 23, was arrested after attempting to access 74 customer accounts on Wegmans.com, which can be used to buy groceries and have them delivered.
Sheftall was successful at hacking 59 of these accounts and made 25 fraudulent orders with "groceries and other goods" that resulted in $10,000 in fraudulent charges, according to authorities.
If convicted, Sheftall faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
Sheftall was released under bail conditions after making an appearance in court before U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark W. Pedersen.
The Wegmans website can be used to order flowers, office supplies and home decorations, in addition to food.
The charges are a result of an FBI investigation.
"We take situations like this very seriously and have thoroughly analyzed the data to ensure all affected information has been secured," a Wegmans spokesperson said. "We do not comment on the specifics of an active investigation."
