A Grantham man stands accused of using eBay in order to fraudulently gain nearly £4,000.

Thomas Cook, 30, of Melbourne Road, Grantham is yet to enter pleas to 10 charges of fraud by false representation, which are alleged to have taken place between December 8, 2014 and February 13, this year.

Cook is charged with offering for sale headphones, generators, an iPhone, iPad, Macbook Pro and snap on tools, and with never sending any of these items after accepting payment from 10 different individuals.

Due to the monetary value alleged, totalling £3,920.10, and the number of complainants, magistrates ruled it was unsuitable for trial under their jurisdiction, and sent the case to Lincoln Crown Court commencing on November 27,

Cook remains on conditional bail not to be involved in the sale of items via the internet.
