Carisa Crone holds copies of fake postal money orders that were sent to an employee at Studio M Salon & Spa. The fraudlent money orders were for a month of booked massages for an Italian model

Check scam targets Bainbridge’s Studio M salon

It seemed like a dream opportunity for the local hair salon and spa, Studio M. An Italian supermodel named Joanna Opoka needed four massages a week through November. She would be staying across the street at the Eagle Harbor Inn and Studio M was in perfect proximity to suit her needs. Acquiescing to the request, the studio soon received $4,000 in U.S. Postal Service money orders to pay for the massages. The checks looked legitimate, they were even shipped by DHL, but soon “Mirella Baroni,” the supposed liaison between Opoka and Studio M was asking the salon to wire money to Malaysia because they had overpaid for Studio M’s services.
