In a report by the Ross County Sheriff's Department, Lewis Bachtal Jr. reported the incident Friday.
Bachtal stated that he was trying to buy the mobile home through eBay, but stopped bidding when he thought he had lost. But a few days later he received a letter from a third party stating he had won the mobile home for $22,000.
He then sent the money though that third party, and the lister of mobile home told him it would be delivered Monday. But it never arrived, he could not contact the lister, and eBay told him that they had no information from the lister.
Bachtal said he had contacted his bank to stop the transfer...but the $22,000 had already gone through.
