Ebay fraudster dupes hundreds

Dinah Greek

An Ebay fraudster who managed to evade a police investigation last year has struck again.

The Ebay seller offered goods for sale on the online auction site and received payments by postal order but never sent the goods to buyers.

Despite police involvement he was able to continue his scam, conning nearly 200 more people last month. However the number may be higher and police believe that his auctions have raked in more than £170,000 since last September.
