Prices Corner man charged in online scam

By Frank Gerace
An 8-month investigation by State Police ends with a Prices Corner man being accused of taking part in an online scam.

Police say Francis Hultberg advertised a camper for sale on e-bay, and when the winning bidder tried to make arrangments to pay for and pick up the RV, Hultberg’s Nigerian accomplice told the bidder to wire the money–more than 30 thousand dollars–to Hultberg, who would drive the vehicle to the bidder’s home in Louisiana.

The bidder wired the cash, but never got the camper, and investigators learned Hultberg had gotten the money and given it to his accomplice.

Hultberg’s out on bail, awaiting a Common Pleas Court hearing on charges of money laundering, felony theft and conspiracy
