LeadsOnline Success Stories: Cyber Crime

Stolen cell phones and iPods recovered on eBay

"I was investigating a case where numerous cell phones and iPods were stolen from a local high school. One of the phones was reported as stolen by the person who purchased it on eBay because of a message on the screen when she received it. I received information from the buyer about the eBay seller and used LeadsOnline to determine who the seller was. I learned he sold seven more items that were also stolen from his school. LeadsOnline saved me numerous hours of work by having the information available at my fingertips."

Speedy customer services helps an Alabama detective track down stolen property

"While investigating numerous thefts, I contacted LeadsOnline because I was unable to run a search through eBay listings to look for stolen property. I use LeasdsOnline on a regular basis; however, I have never conducted a search for user ID info through the eBay search. I emailed LeadsOnline with a question and was contacted almost immediately. The employee explained to me how to get the information I was requesting. I was able to search and pull up all listings for the suspect which included numerous suspected stolen items. I later interviewed the suspect and obtained a confession on how she stole all these items from a local store. I used the listings to verify everything she stole. I was able to recover some of the stolen property and return it to its owner. By using LeadsOnline, I was able to identify numerous other stolen items besides what was originally reported, and then make an arrest."

Employee theft identified with instant access to eBay information for law enforcement

"I recently was assigned to investigate a case where an employee was listing products owned by his employer on eBay. Once the eBay auction was complete, the employee was getting the items off of the employer's shelf and shipping the items to the auction winner, at the employer's cost. The eBay search function greatly sped up the process of checking the seller's history and confirming that around 30 transactions had been completed, and another 70 or so had been attempted. The employee confessed to the activity, but when confronted with the amount of thefts was somewhat surprised at the amount."

Michigan detectives solve cyber crime in no time with eBay First Responder Service

"Day shift took a report of two-way radios being taken out of 17 trucks over the weekend. A detective was assigned the case and began following up on it. He searched the radios in LeadsOnline, for eBay postings of radios for sale and found a posting for the radios. The detective then drilled down in the records for the seller of the radios. Those records identified a Pontiac woman's eBay account. An interview of the woman produced confession of her involvement in the theft and sale. The case is still being investigated to identify the male involved in the theft with the Pontiac woman."

California detective solves cyber crime in record time

"I used the eBay search tool through LeadsOnline for the first time and instantly received information on a potential suspect who lived in our city. Immediate follow-up was conducted at the suspect's residence and the stolen property, worth approximately $9,000, was recovered from his home! I am thankful for the partnership LeadsOnline has with eBay because without it, I don't think I would have been able to locate this property. Needless to say, the victim was ecstatic to hear his property was recovered in record breaking time!"

Suspect selling stolen military items identified in no time

"On Monday I was handed a theft case from my Chief of Police. Someone was selling a military item on eBay that was believed to be stolen. I contacted LeadsOnline and spoke with someone on their support team, while on the phone with him, I was able to look up and identify the suspect. Thanks to this search, I was able to identify my suspect and write a search warrant for the suspect's residence. To top it off, I recovered two of the stolen military items, and the suspect was in jail the very next day. LeadsOnline streamlined the investigation process with the eBay First Responder Service."

LeadsOnline reveals cybercrime and shoplifting operation in Minnesota

"I just signed up for my LeadsOnline trial this week. I was looking for information on obtaining user information to an eBay account, and before starting the subpoena process with eBay, I saw the link to try eBay First Responder through LeadsOnline. Looking for a resource that may expedite my investigation, I gave LeadsOnline a try. In no time at all, I received a call from a representative who was very helpful in setting up my account and giving me a quick tutorial on how to use the program. After ending our call, I put the suspect's eBay seller account name into the database and received the information I had planned on not receiving for several weeks had I requested information via a subpoena. Two days later, a neighboring agency and I arranged an undercover meeting with the suspect. The suspect was later arrested after admitting she was selling stolen merchandise. A subsequent search of the suspect's house found many stolen items and revealed the suspect was involved in a large shoplifting operation that involved approximately 12 stores in our area. I'm very appreciative that I found this resource! I know it will be beneficial in the future as well!"

First day with LeadsOnline reaps success

"On the first day of using LeadsOnline, another detective in my bureau had a burglary investigation that resulted in the identification of the suspect's eBay account name. I used LeadsOnline to search for the eBay username and located the suspect's information. The eBay information helped identify the suspects in the burglary."

eBay First Responder Service catches boat burglar wanted for nine months

"Our department spent nine months tracking boat burglars up and down the Connecticut shoreline. The suspects had stolen items totaling $40,000 - $50,000 such as expensive GPS devices, laptops and binoculars. We found many of the items listed on eBay, and using LeadsOnline eBay First Responder Service, we were able to contact buyers which allowed us to positively identify the property as stolen. Because of the eBay First Responder Service, we were able to locate stole property across the U.S. as well as in the United Kingdom and Australia. Upon apprehending our main suspect, we found that he had been wanted on warrants since 2009, and because of the evidence provided through LeadsOnline, he confessed to more than 30 boat burglaries. His accomplice was also arrested. Without the valuable information and help I received from LeadsOnline and the staff there, this case could still be open."
