Undercover cop helps bust eBay scam (UK)

An undercover police officer posed as a postie to catch fraudsters using a house in Luton to receive mobile telephones won on eBay, after conning sellers into believing they had paid for them.

Temitope Otukoya, 28, and Olamrewaju Otukoya, 42, of Creswell Gardens, were both remanded in custody at Luton Magistrates' Court and will appear at Luton Crown Court next Friday.

Police discovered that fake Paypal emails were being sent out to sellers, telling them that money had been transferred into their account.
By the time they found the phones had not been paid for, the items had already been sent.
