Man sells over $4,000 in Wii, PS3 consoles on eBay that he never had

A man in Warren County, Ohio was indicted Monday on allegedly "selling" Nintendo Wii and PlayStation 3 consoles that he never had. Jeremy Sparks, 22, put up photos of the Wii and PS3 consoles on eBay "so he could defraud victims across the country by agreeing to sell them electronic game systems which he did not have," a grand jury report says. According to The Enquirer, Sparks' ads snared at least six buyers, said Warren County Prosecutor Rachel Hutzel. His "winning" bidders turned out to be losers.

this world works when people stand behind their word,work,convictions.
When that goes out the window you get vermin that can talk like this creton. People like him and those that see nothing wrong with what he did ARE THE PROBLEM.

You can't really blame the guy at Ebay, he is making a sell- if people are WILLING to pay that kind of money, then why should he be labled as the bad guy. What should the guy do? Say no, I can't accept that fat wad of cash because it didn't cost me as much. That's what businesses do all the time- sell the product for more than they make it in order to make PROFIT.

this idiot took the money and ran, he didn't offer anything in return much less what HE ADVERTISED FOR SALE, try that in your town and see how fast you get locked up for fraud.
