A woman from New York was arrested for posing as one of the relatives of Newtown victim.

Authorities say Nouel Alba, of the Bronx, used her Facebook page to claim she was the aunt of Sandy Hook victim Noah Pozner she solicited money for what she said were the little boy’s funeral expenses.

Instead, feds says, she kept the money for herself.

The FBI says all donations have since been returned to the donors.

Alba claims someone else hacked her facebook page.

She could face five years in prison.
