12 Years For Internet Auction Fraud
from the lock-'em-up dept
A guy found guilty of defrauding online shoppers out of $100,000 through auctions at Yahoo and eBay has been sentenced to twelve years in jail for the frauds. That’s quite a sentence. I’m not against sending a very strong message to people who think they can get away with such scams, but twelve years still seems a bit on the excessive side.
