eBay Australia con man uncovered

A DISABLED pensioner who was duped out of $11 has helped bring down an alleged internet scammer from the Northern Territory. NT Police believe 22-year-old Brent Mack conned almost $5000 out of buyers on the auction website eBay.

But the alleged scam artist might still be operating if not for the efforts of Ralph Johansson.

Mr Johansson, of Busselton in Western Australia, was so incensed at being ripped off in February 2005 he set up a website detailing the incident. He soon contacted several other eBay users who had suffered a similar fate.
