Internet fraud suspect sought
CrimeStoppers and the Honolulu Police Department request the public’s assistance in locating and identifying a suspect who has cheated victims out of $8,000 on eBay. He uses the names Peter Ransom, Law Rence and Jeremy Johnson, and since October of last year, there have been at least seven cases in which he’s put electronic equipment and other related items up for auction but never shipped them after collecting payment.
The suspect was captured on bank surveillance photos. A copy of a Florida state driver’s license was also recovered, but it has been determined to be fraudulent.
Anyone with information may contact Detective Randall Akau directly at 547-7217.
