TheBurglar.com May Be Illegal

from the wonderful-business-models dept

Here’s an amusing one that I had not heard about. There’s a site called TheBurglar.com that lets victims of theft try to find and reclaim their stolen property. It also lets “whoever” happens to have that property list it for sale anonymously (or, rather for “reward”, not sale). Yes, if you hadn’t figured it out this is basically an online fencing operation with apparently noble goals (yeah, right). Well, after operating for some time in the US, they’ve opened up shop in the UK where the police have decided it’s breaking a few laws.
