Fairfielder says he was swindled on eBay deal
A Querida Street resident told police Tuesday that he had swindled out of $765 on an Internet deal gone bad.
The local man had apparently made contact with a man in South Africa through eBay and sent the man an iPhone 4. But when he failed to receive payment for the phone, he contacted the customer and demanded that he return the phone.
The man received a package from the South African, but the box was empty, according to police.
