Ex-postie sold junk mail coupons on eBay

No primary category set

The Hull Daily Mail reports that a former postman has been sentenced for stealing junk mail containing money off vouchers, which he then sold on eBay. Coupons from companies such as Lurpak, Pampers, McCain chips and Wetherspoons were sold in bulk to eBay customers, and he even posted them using Royal Mail prepaid envelopes. The 36 year old Hull man pleaded guilty to three counts of theft, and was sentenced to 100 hours of unpaid community work, and ordered to pay £1,000 costs.

If he wants to start up a legitimate business selling junk mail, I have plenty of stock here for him.

  1. AS long as it’s only junk mail that their selling & not our ebay goods for our buyers….

  2. I would think that the prepaid envelopes are the thing that had the most value. I’ve sold coupons on eBay many times, but I always gathered them myself. What a lazy idiot.
