Business ban for shed fraudster

CATEGORY: News

A man who sold sheds on eBay and then failed to deliver them has been sentenced to 250 hours of community service and banned from setting up a new business for three years. Philip Mack from Rhyl was also ordered to pay a total of £6,244 in compensation to his customers. His defence counsel told how he had originally sold timber sheds on eBay for up to £800, but as he had “a very poor business acumen”, ended up losing £160 in courier fees on every order. The orders kept coming in, but he was unable to fulfil them. I’m sure his customers will see that as a very poor excuse for continuing to advertise the sheds, and it’s a salutory lesson in the importance of doing your homework before you even start selling.
