CASTELLARANO, Italy, July 24 (UPI) --
Italian police say a wood shop owner scammed out of nearly $8,000 worth of beams recognized the alleged fraudster on Facebook.
Investigators said they were able to identify the 38-year-old suspect accused of paying the Castellarano shop owner with a bad check and using a stolen credit card for identification thanks to a picture the victim spotted on Facebook, ANSA reported Wednesday.
The man saw the suspect's picture while browsing friends' photos on the social networking site, police said.
