In addition, Caruvana purchased a second cell phone and sent threatening text messages to her own cell phone from the second phone, which she subsequently reported fraudulently to the agency. law enforcement that the threatening messages were sent by NASA personnel.
In the next process NASA OIG investigation, Caruvana spoofed purported emails from the victim’s NASA email account to make it look like he was threatening her, after which Caruvana sent these fake emails to an OIG agent of NASA.
