eBay scamming teen faces 40 years jail
Lucky to escape date with Ol' Sparky
A teenager from Gainsville, Georgia, faces a possible 40 years in jail for ripping off eBay customers.
Grogory Klimeck, 19, is accused of advertising non-existent goods and pocketing more than $4,500 in payments.
In one instance, he advertised ATI Technologies All-in-Wonder video card and took 20 payments ranging from $20 to over $250. Police say he never had the video card in the first place.
The net closed on the evil criminal genius when complaints to the FBI's Internet Fraud Complaint Center were forwarded to local police. Klimeck now faces a date with the judge on 21 counts of theft by deception and one of racketeering. If convicted, he could be fined $20,000 or be breaking rocks for a sobering 40 years.
Which begs the question: what on earth happens to you down in Georgia if you do something really bad? We suspect it involves a gurney, straps, needles and a viewing gallery packed with enraged relatives. You have been warned. ®
