Among those that Oleson is alleged to have swindled is a contractor who did work at her house in September. She paid the contractor for the work with $13,980 worth of fake Facebook stock, according to the complaint. The contractor also paid an addition $10,000 in cash to Oleson for additional stock.
Oleson is also accused of defrauding a 66-year-old man who gave her four checks totaling close to $43,000 in late 2011 to pay for fake Facebook stock, and two other men who were sold a total of $9,000 worth of "stock."
Folks, you can't buy it yet, not as a publicly traded firm, at least. Don't fall for it. This probably isn't the last time someone will try to sell fake Facebook stock now that the IPO has been announced.
