Internet Scammer Jay Nelson Pleads Guilty
from the go-directly-to-jail-this-time dept
Last year we covered the story of the “Internet’s John Dillinger”, Jay Nelson, an online auction scammer who scammed people out of thousands of dollars and disappeared. Soon after that original report came out, a rare coins store owner heard about him on the radio and recognized the name as someone who came to her store (despite using many fake names online, he continued to use his real one in real life), and alerted the authorities, who came and arrested him. Now, one year later, he’s decided to simply plead guilty, for which he should receive approximately five years in jail.
