'Notorious' eBay fraud sentence

A 20-year-old "obsessed" with defrauding customers of the internet auction site eBay has been sentenced to two years' custody.

Philip Shortman, from Cwmbran, south Wales, was sent to a detention centre for another £45,000 eBay fraud in 2005.

The judge at Newport Crown Court said his deception "strikes at the system" of internet trading "as a whole".

In the latest fraud he was jailed for conning eBay users of £14,000 and breaching a suspended jail term.
