Owner Of Canadian iPhone Scam Site Convicted On Unrelated Charges
The owner of a Canadian iPhone scam website was convicted for unrelated charges recently. Scott Fredrick Byers, also known as Joshua Trousdale, had been running the scam site iPhoneNow.ca that had been promising iPhones for sale to Canadians before the device had officially been launched there, scamming would-be customers out of a total of $390,000.
The unsavory character plead guilty to charges for uttering forged documents and obstruction of justice. He has a previous record as well, having been convicted for a similar scam in which he promised PlayStation2 systems that were never delivered.
Since his most recent conviction, he has promised to return the money made from the website, but we doubt he will without having been ordered to do so.
