The confession came in Friday from the three people who are now charged with killing Janice Zengotita-Torres.
The woman who was the intended target of the murder-for-hire plot has been notified about the scheme against her but has denied protective services, deputies said.
She chose to hire Alexis Ramos-Rivera and his girlfriend, Glorianmarie Quinones Montes, to kill the woman, but they mistook Zengotita-Torres for their target and abducted her instead.
Zengotita-Torres moved to Osceola County from Puerto Rico with her 14-year-old-son, husband and father about a year ago, investigators said.
"This was a murder for hire", said Osceola County Sheriff Russell Gibson.

Zengotita-Torres worked at the same store as the intended target and the two looked similar, investigators said. They followed her to a parking lot near her home where they allegedly abducted her, forcing her into their vehicle before speeding away.
"This woman lost her life for no reason".
Following a series of transactions, police nabbed Lopez-Ramos, who led them to the other two suspects in the case.
"However the suspects continued with their plan of murder and tied the victim with the zip ties and her head and duct tape and garbage bags", said Sheriff Gibson.
Alexis Ramos-Rivera was booked for murder in Osceola County Jail, Florida, Jan. 12, 2018.

"The suspects showed no regard for this victim, causing her to die from suffocation because the garbage bags were wrapped around her head", Gibson said. He said the three of them dumped Torres' body 91 miles away in the middle of a residential neighborhood in Ormond Beach.
Ramos was arrested Thursday night while using Zengotita-Torres' card to withdraw cash from an ATM in the area, according to authorities.
"All three confirmed this was a murder for hire and that the victim was mistakenly targeted and murdered", the Sheriff said.
Lopez-Ramos, Ramos-Rivera and Quinones-Montes have been booked in Osceola County Jail and face charges of premeditated first-degree murder, according to jail records.
