A 22-year-old has been arrested in an alleged scam of the largest internet retailer that totaled nearly $370,000 by sending return packages filled with dirt.

James Gilbert Kwarteng, of Palma de Mallorca, Spain, allegedly swindled AmazonOpens a New Window. by filling up the ordered items’ boxes with dirt and registering with the exact weight of the product.
