Delhi man jailed over Internet scam

DELHI -- A man who was allegedly running an Internet scam using eBay from his parents' home is now behind bars.

Merced County sheriff's investigators arrested 20-year-old Benjamin Haag after eight alleged victims reported that they ordered goods from Haag -- but never received the items they paid for.

Haag faces felony grand theft and fraud charges.

John Mussotto, a sheriff's computer and forensics expert, said the department became aware of the case after the victims contacted the federal government's Internet Crime Complaint Center with stories of how they had allegedly bought items Haag was selling on eBay, a shopping and auction Web site.

I was one of the victims of Mr. Haag, though I was not contacted by anyone even though I also submitted a complaint to the Internet Crime Complaint Center. He got me for $300 for a guitar amp. Ebay canned his account before I could leave feedback.
