Federal Indictments Against LWWG Owners
I don't know how many of you remember the eBay seller "Look What We Got (LWWG)" from 2003/2004. Their eBay site sold high-end kitchen applicances - SubZero, Wolf. There were many threads posted here discussing whether they were legit or not. Hubby and I completed our DIY kitchen that year and I posted about our near-miss with them after ordering and then canceling a purchase for a Wolfe rangetop. Well, guess what - I just received a notification last week from the US Dept of Justice in Reno NV that Jennifer Lynn French and Darin Jerome French (aka LWWG owners on eBay) are scheduled for a federal trial to face criminal charges - the two are charged with 21 counts of mail fraud, 63 counts of wire fraud, and aiding and abetting.
So there may be justice after all. Trial is scheduled for 7 April 2009 in Reno. Here's an excerpt from the notification I received:
"Please be aware that not all cases proceed to trial and there is a possibility that this case will be resolved through a plea agreement. If you would like to confer with the Assistance United States Attorney prosecuting this case regarding a plea agreement, you must contact the Assistance US Attorney prior to the date of the change of plea or no later than two weeks from the date of this letter."
I can post DOJ contact information if you had dealings with LWWG as well
