EBay fraud –- A man who defrauded more than 250 people out of about $1.5 million by advertising high-end appliances on EBay and then failing to send the products has been sentenced to more than 12 years in federal prison.

 

Darin French, 40, was convicted by a jury in February on 22 counts of mail fraud, 11 counts of wire fraud and three counts of money laundering. Prosecutors said French and his wife, Jennifer, who was also convicted, established an online business called “Look What We Got,” which advertised kitchen appliances by Sub Zero, Viking and Wolf at discount prices.

 

After initially shipping products to a few customers, the couple failed to send merchandise to about 250 customers and kept their victims’ money. The couple, who then lived in Incline Village, Nev., established multiple accounts on EBay and gave themselves positive feedback to trick customers into believing that they were trustworthy, prosecutors said.

 

The couple used the stolen money to buy a $50,000 Bayliner boat and a Ford F250 pickup truck, prosecutors said. Jennifer French is scheduled to be sentenced July 11.
