Rugby league star pleads guilty to eBay ink scam

Fake printer ink and game biz shut down

Top three mobile application threats

Gareth Raynor, a former Great Britain rugby league player, pleaded guilty yesterday to 14 charges of fraud and counterfeiting.

Raynor, 32, sold counterfeit ink cartridges for printers and fake game cartridges on eBay and other sites.

He imported reconditioned second-hand cartridges from China and then re-wrapped them in packaging made to look like that of brands such as Epson and HP. He also sold Gameboy and Nintendo DS game cartridges repackaged to appear new.

Trading standards raided his house in Brough, Yorkshire in August 2008, the BBC reports. ®
