Former Apple Store employee, Ruben Profit (24) was arrested and charged with grand larceny and several other crimes after supposedly purchasing almost 1 million in gift cards using recorded debit and credit cards.

Ruben started working for the company two years ago. From July to October he worked at the Apple Store located at the Queens Center Mall. In that period, Profit allegedly used recoded debit and credit cards to purchase Apple gift cards all together worth almost $1M ($997,000).

He used American Express and Visa debit, credit and gift cards and he re-encoded them with fraudulent information.

At the time of his arrest, Ruben was in possession of seven Apple gift cards, each worth $2,000 and 51 re-encoded American Express and Visa gift cards.

According to officials, Ruben supposedly told the police that for each $2,000 Apple gift card he sold to other people, he was paid $200.
