Fraud Update

Remember Michael Cox? He's the scam artist I ran into a few months ago on eBay. After paying back about three quarters of my money, he inexplicably skipped town. Turns out, people were starting to come out of the woodwork with similar reports. All in all, the DA ended up filing 14 felony counts of auction fraud and grand theft against the guy.

He turned up two months ago in Riverside, California, running the same scam. The recalcitrant fraudster was promptly arrested and held over for trial. Yesterday, I received word that he pled guilty to several counts of auction fraud. I had pretty much given up on ever seeing that final $358. Apparently, he now has to pay it back as a condition of his probation. Life is good.
