The United States Department of Justice has notified us that the sentencing hearing for defendant, Nancy Pua, has been set for December 6, 2007, 02:30 PM at San Francisco before Judge Jeffrey S. White. Sentencing for Defendants Kevin Pua and Johnny Lee Tan will go forward on August 30, 2007 at 2:30 PM before Judge White. According to the notice, the defendants sold counterfeit luxury handbags over e-Bay. An indictment returned in January 2006 charged Nancy Pua and her son Kevin Pua with one count of conspiracy, eight counts of mail fraud, five counts of wire fraud, and numerous counts of trafficking in counterfeit goods. Johnny Lee Tan, who was alleged in the indictment to be Nancy Pua’s brother, was charged with one count of conspiracy and one count of trafficking in counterfeit goods.
Chalk one up for the good guys! We hope they get some time away and hopefully the Feds are keeping an eye on similar eBay scammers.
