eBay fraudster faces possible jail

'Extremely serious' outlook for Welsh teen

A 17-year-old lad who admitted ripping off people by selling them non-existent goods via eBay could be jailed.

Judge Roderick Denyer told the teenager at a hearing at Cardiff Crown Court yesterday: "I take an extremely serious view of defrauding on the eBay and it clearly raises the possibility of a custodial sentence."

The teenager - who cannot be named for legal reasons - admitted 21 fraud charges and asked for a further 64 offences to be taken into consideration, reports icWales.
