Cudahy police seek charges in eBay scam

A south side man with no prior criminal record told investigators he was feeding a gambling addiction when police say he defrauded 17 customers in 12 states of $8,000 during bogus computer sales over eBay.

A year-long investigation tracked as many as 42 possible victims, but Cudahy [Wisconsin] police plan to seek charges on the four most provable cases. Those victims sent money to the man's Cudahy home from Alaska, Florida, Kentucky and Ohio and were able to provide investigators strong evidence of the transactions, according to police Lt. David Aamodt, who led the investigation.
