A Joplin, Mo., man was sentenced in federal court Tuesday for a scheme to defraud more than 1,200 victims by selling forged sports and celebrity memorabilia through eBay as well as illegally possessing a firearm when he was arrested after a police chase. David Bruce Shryock, 49, of Joplin, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Richard E. Dorr to eight years and four months in federal prison without parole. The court also ordered Shryock to pay $174,894 in restitution to his victims.

Glad to see that law enforcement is getting serious against memorabilia fraud. Hopefully convictions like this will deter would-be fraudsters in the future.
