eBay Sellers Fined For Bidding Up Own Items

New York Attorney General Eliot Spitzer, who can’t seem to find enough high profile cases to keep himself busy, has now fined eight eBay sellers approximately $90,000 for bidding up the items they were selling. This is a pretty standard form of eBay fraud that’s happened since quite early on. Unfortunately, the article doesn’t go into detail about how they were caught. One good note about all this is that, unlike some other fraud fines, it sounds like much of the money from these fines will find its way back to the eventual buyers who paid too much for items on eBay.
