eBay Still Popular For Criminals
from the the-new-new-pawn-shop dept
Over a year ago we had a post about how eBay was pushing out pawn shops as the popular way to fence stolen goods. It seems that nothing much has changed, as plenty of stolen products are still showing up and eBay still claims it's just a "minor" problem - nothing you should concern yourself with. However, the article does have one story of a woman who bought a laptop via eBay, and then found out it was stolen when she tried to call for service from the manufacturer.
