eBay Seller Ordered to 250 Hours of Unpaid Works For Boosting Prices on His Goods

The first eBay seller to be prosecuted for bidding in his own auctions to boost the price of his goods was ordered to do 250 hours of unpaid work today by a judge who also told him to pay Ј5,000 in fines and costs.

Barrett was sentenced after admitting 10 counts at Bradford Crown Court, informs Independent.

The minibus hire firm boss pleaded guilty after an investigation by North Yorkshire Trading Standards found he had bid against himself on several items, including a pie and pasty warmer on sale for Ј127.

Mr Barrett told the court that he didn't realise the practice was against the law, BBC News reports.
