Collierville,Tenn. -- The first $500 money order cleared the bank.

Jerry Breedlove's making payments and apologies -- after Linda Corti turned him into a website 'wanted poster.'

The Collierville, TN, handy-man has admitted to falsifying invoices to defraud Corti of $3,054.75.

Corti had hired Breedlove to purchase and install 18 recessed lights and their hardware for part of her East Memphis home renovation. 

Breedlove had performed work on her home before, so Corti said she felt comfortable hiring him again.

What Corti, a graphic artist by trade, did was design a website:

She actually bought the web rights to his name. "I think it was probably $28 or something," she said.

Corti explains on the website how Breedlove falsified the lighting invoices by using photo-shopped fronts and fake customer order numbers.

Currently, Breedlove is sending Corti weekly payments to pay back the money he stole.
