MSNBC reports that an eBay auctioneer calling himself "Skunkker" struck again during the long Memorial Day weekend. "There is some information linking this fraudster to a con artist named Jay Nelson, who has periodically bilked auction users out of thousands in fake auctions since he first surfaced last year. Nelson disappeared from his New Hampshire home in February one day before he was to be arraigned in U.S. District Court." http://www.msnbc.com/news/583147.asp
