eBay Posse Goes After Con Artists

from the detective-stories dept

A nice little cyber-detective story about some folks who were conned out of their money on eBay and who tracked down the con artists. A few things that I find interesting: first off that folks were willing to send such large amounts of money to people who had no rankings. You’d at least think to use an escrow service. Second, that these idiot con artists were so stupid to think they wouldn’t get caught when they left about 50 different trails suggesting who they were. Well, if one thing’s certain, it’s that morons are still morons when they get online.
