I got scrammed out of $78.00 back in July for a CD Burner that I bought on *-bay. I found and organized about 18 of his other victims and we got organized. Some were taken for as much as $1500.00 so it was worth our efforts. We contacted *-bay and they monitored his actions, reported them to the police in his home city, they kicked him off the same day the police arrested him on about 12 cases of fraud. *-bay was instrumental in getting this guy busted. The thief went to jail and I've had reports from the Da's office about the progress of the case, He's definitely going to do jail time and must make restitution. *-Bay is a dangerous place for thieves. Its a really great place to sell cheap Chinese crap at full retail prices and that's completely legal.
