Man Sued Over Mailing Feces

A man is being sued by Missouri Attorney General Jay Nixon for allegedly sending garbage and even feces to eBay customers who thought they were bidding for new or slightly used clothing.


Nixon filed the fraud suit against Michael D. Pickens of Bethany. His wife, Tamera Pickens, told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch he is disabled with a rare blood disease, is unemployed and has never sold anything over the Internet.

So the people just got boxes of feces mailed to them and your husband didn't do it...riiiiiiight.

The suit claims Internet ads promised top-quality clothes, including ads from Victoria Secret, Banana Republic and other well-known brands. When customers placed their orders through the online auction site eBay, the suit says, Pickens arranged for the shipment to come from companies that sell industrial rags, unwanted clothing or household items meant for poor countries. In one case, a customer received feces.

Ok I would seriously have to cut someone if I was expecting to get Vicky-C's undies and I got poo. However, I would like to point out that buying underwear from E-Bay *might* not be the best plan. Where they supposed to be used? If they were, were they supposed to be washed? Or was it one of those sick panty auctions where middle aged pedofiles buy the homecoming queens panties? (If it was then I guess I don't think it's so bad they didn't get what they paid for-you sickos). Really, I just don't even have words right now.

Nixon said Pickens either ignored or refused requests for refunds.

Tip of the Day: If you mail out garbage/feces instead of clothing you might want to at least refund the money when people realize you didn't send them what they paid for since they're probably going to be pissed enough to take legal action.

The lawsuit, filed in Harrison County Circuit Court, seeks a permanent injunction and fines of $1,000 per violation.

The worst part is the people probably will never get their money back since this clown seems judgment proof so basically they have a bunch of garbage/crap (literally).
