Pearsall was authorized to order new or replacement phones from Verizon Wireless’ online portal, which were charged to Tradebe.

A representative from Verizon contacted Tradebe on Aug. 6, 2019 after an audit showed that over 2,000 iPhone 7s were purchased in the previous 12 months for 99 cents each, the report said. Only 200 of the phones were activated on the Tradebe account.
