A Seal Beach, Calif. woman is in big trouble for allegedly posing as an FBI agent.

The Associated Press reports that Karen Elaine Hanover, who allegedly posed as an agent, had a real estate service that charged clients $30,000 to provide commercial property information.

AP reported that some disenchanted clients unhappy with the service blogged about Hanover’s operation and encouraged people to report her activity to the FBI.

AP said the FBI claims Hanover threatened  clients by phone and posed as an FBI agent. In at least one instance, AP reported, she  used “spoofing technology” to make her voice sound like a man.
