BURLINGTON, NC (AP) -- A Mississippi woman has been charged in a cell phone scheme in North Carolina. The Times-News of Burlington reported 20-year-old Ryanecia Collins of Osceola, Miss., is being held in the Alamance County jail. Collins is charged with nine counts of obtaining property by false pretense, attempting to obtain property by false pretense and two counts of identity theft. Sheriff's deputies say she called several people and posed as a representative of their cell phone service provider and told them they were in danger of losing service. Collins is accused of telling them they could make a payment to avoid a loss of service by providing a debit card number. Investigators say she used the cards numbers to wire money to herself. It wasn't clear if she has an attorney. (Copyright 2011 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.)
