Burlington man charged in eBay scam

A 28-year-old Burlington man has been charged in connection with an online fraud through the popular online auction site eBay.

The Alamance County Sheriff's Office said a victim in Austin, Texas, contacted Elon police after items purchased were not delivered. The sheriff's office did not say what items were bought.

The sheriff's office, working with fraud investigators at eBay, found $1,817.51 in losses from several victims around the country.

Brian David Wright of 2204 Carolina Road in Burlington was charged Monday with two counts of obtaining property by false pretense and one count of accessing computers to defraud. His bond was set at $8,000.
