Man Sells Trash On eBay

A Bethany man is being sued by Missouri Attorney General Jay Nixon for allegedly sending garbage and even feces to eBay customers who thought they were bidding for new or slightly used clothing.

Nixon filed the fraud suit against Michael Pickens. His wife, Tamera Pickens, told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch he is disabled with a rare blood disease, is unemployed and has never sold anything over the Internet.

The suit claims Internet ads promised top-quality clothes, including ads from Victoria’s Secret, Banana Republic and other well-known brands. But when customers placed their orders through the online auction site eBay, the suit says, Pickens arranged for the shipments to come from companies that sell industrial rags, unwanted clothing or household items meant for poor countries.

In one case, a customer allegedly received feces.

Nixon said Pickens either ignored or refused requests for refunds.

The lawsuit, filed in Harrison County Circuit Court, seeks a permanent injunction and fines of $1,000 per violation.
