CLEVELAND- Two men are accused of posting ads for sports memorabilia on Craigslist, collecting money and then never turning over any goods.
The Cleveland Police Financial Crimes Unit filed charges against Justin and Tylor Baker. They’ve both been charged with telecommunications fraud and theft.
Court records show they cheated one victim out of $1,370 and they had “several listings in several states.”
Fox 8 learned police are investigating complaints in Kentucky, New Jersey, New York and California.
The men are suspected of advertising sports gear, including a basketball signed by LeBron James and a football signed by Browns legend Jim Brown. But police said the men didn’t send merchandise after collecting money for it.
Both suspects have had short court hearings to begin fighting the charges. Meantime, the investigation is continuing, and a county grand jury could add more charges later.
