Wegmans hacker who used 50 accounts to buy $9K in groceries pleads guilty

A Brooklyn man has pled guilty on Monday for using more than 50 people’s Wegmans accounts to buy over $9,000 worth of groceries for himself. Maurice Sheftall, 24, accessed the online accounts of over 50 Wegmans customers, changed their passwords, and email records to lock them out, according to prosecutors.


Sheftall then utilized the customers’ saved credit card information to place 25 orders, with groceries delivered to himself and others. Prosecutors claim that the fraudulent orders amounted to $9,297.05.

He entered a guilty plea for fraud and related activity involving computers. He was sentenced to three years of probation and instructed to pay $41,441.

The payment will go towards reimbursing customers and providing credit monitoring and dark web monitoring to determine how Sheftall managed to access the customers’ accounts.
