    "The scam paid off for Sbeih-Maddox, police say. She's believed to have successfully ripped off approximately 150 victims, for a total of $200,000. She mainly targeted new moms.

    Sbeih-Maddox's targets weren't only local to Northeast Ohio. The Ohio Attorney General's Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BCI) says victims have been located as far away as Hawaii."

    The suspect is described as:

    • 5-foot-3
    • 130 lbs.
    • Brown hair
    • Brown eyes

    Sbeih-Maddox ran a mom's group on Facebook called "Zee's Place," where she sold heavily discounted baby items, such as diapers and car seats. She later went on to sell big ticket items, like vehicles, electronics and trips around the world. In most cases, the goods were never delivered.
