A 65-year-old Tampa man has been indicted by a federal grand jury on charges of using false names to order more than $75,000 in merchandise from mail-order catalog companies.
Edmund V. Jackson of 4408 N. Lois Ave. in Tampa used false names to place orders to BMG Music Co. in Indiana and Oxmoore House in Alabama to obtain merchandise for which he did not intend to pay, according to the indictment unsealed Friday.
Jackson used the names Robert P. Stone and Laura Whitman and added different apartment numbers to them, the indictment says. He faces two counts of mail fraud.
Jackson couldn't be reached for comment. No representative of Oxmoore House or BMG Music could be reached.
