Internet adoption scam

Date: January 19, 2007

A Nashville woman who was subject of a Dateline NBC story accusing her in an Internet adoption scam, pleaded guilty to identity theft Thursday.

Davidson County Criminal Court Judge Monte Watkins sentenced Amy Cumbee, also known as Marissa Fultz, to two years and one month in custody.

At least two couples have accused her of duping them into spending thousands of dollars on legal fees and living expenses so they could adopt a baby they thought she was having.

But Cumbee, 27, was only charged with using the name of another woman to arrange the adoption, said prosecutor Debbie Housel.
