L.A. Man Charged with Scamming eBay Buyers
(Reuters) - A Los Angeles man was charged on Wednesday with defrauding eBay buyers on six continents in what prosecutors called one of the largest Internet auctions scams uncovered. Chris Chong Kim, 27, was charged with four counts of grand theft and 26 counts of holding a mock auction for allegedly failing to deliver the high-end computers and computer parts he sold on his eBay business site, Calvin Auctions. Kim was scheduled to be arraigned on Wednesday in Los Angeles. He was arrested on Tuesday and was jailed in lieu of $400,000 bail. If convicted on all counts, he faces up to 24 years in prison.
