NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A Hungarian woman has pleaded guilty for her role in an international fraud scheme in Tennessee.

Beatrix Boka entered her plea on Wednesday before U.S. District Judge Aleta A. Trauger in the Middle District of Tennessee to one count of conspiracy to commit bank and wire fraud. A co-conspirator, also of Hungary, pleaded guilty last week.

The 34-year-old Boka admitted that members of the conspiracy fraudulently listed vehicles for sale at online marketplaces such as eBay.

When individuals expressed interest in purchasing the vehicles, they were sent emails that directed them to wire payments to certain bank accounts, but the individuals never received the vehicles for which they paid.

Boka faces up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine.Copyright 2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.
