The individual has been convicted for deceiving individuals who purchased items on eBay.
A man named Dru Marshall, residing in Hampshire, England, stated that he held a position as a senior footman at Windsor Castle and that the profits from selling his “antler walking stick” would be donated to cancer research. The auction had reached a price of 540 pounds ($686), but Marshall cancelled the listing when he discovered that the police were investigating the matter, according to prosecutors.
He was convicted of committing fraud through deceit at Southampton Magistrates’ Court and was given a 12-month community order on Monday.
