BERLIN (Reuters) – A 44-year-old German businessman whose digital
camera was stolen at a restaurant was relieved when he managed to buy
exactly the same model on the eBay Internet auction site to match his
But he became suspicious when it emerged the seller came from his home town. It proved to be the same camera.
Police said on Thursday they were questioning the 34-year-old vendor
who, in a statement said, “claims he got the camera at a flea market, but
was also offering other cameras on the Internet”.
Other stolen cameras? Is EBay becoming the flea market of stolen things?
