Julie Flood, eBay scammer
These people are some of the lowest forms of life and should be sent to jail. Usually they vanish having left a trail of disappointed and out of pocket customers, however, in the case of Julie Flood, she was apprehended after complaints from customers she had scammed via her eBay shop between November 2004 and March 2005.
Prosecutor Philip St John-Stevens said: “She was running a site on eBay selling holidays… these holidays were never to materialise.”
Flood, 45, from Sussex Road, Maidstone, Kent, admitted 27 counts of theft and will be sentenced on August 1st.
Update – Julie Flood was sentenced to 16 months
