A fraudster who was selling £26,000 worth of fake designer clothes, cosmetics and computer games on eBay was caught out by a sting operation.
Bhavin Shah, 28, who went by the online name healthheaven2000, ordered goods from China to sell to UK consumers.
He was caught out when he unknowingly sold counterfeit Gillette Mach3 Turbo razor blades to Brent and Harrow Trading Standards officers.
A search of his home on Alveston Avenue, Harrow, uncovered a haul of fake goods including Nike trainers, Adidas tracksuits, Versace, Gucci and Armani clothes, and a stock of toothbrushes.
A number of complaints had previously been made by customers receiving fakes since December 2007.
Shah pleaded guilty to possessing counterfeit goods at Harrow Magistrates' Court on March 25.
He was sentenced on Wednesday to 270 hours of community service and made to pay costs of £2,009.
Chairman of the Bench Alan Cohen said: "This is a very serious offence. Your previous good character and guilty plea leads us to consider a community sentence more appropriate.
"Unpaid work within the community is not an easy option."
Susan Hall, portfolio holder for environment at Harrow Council, said: "Online crime is the scourge of today's digital society.
"This man thought he had a licence to print money by fencing counterfeit goods but was caught by the excellent work of our officers.
"The result goes a small but significant way towards making the internet a safer place to trade."

so let me get this straight, the dodgy ebay seller gets to make a bucket load of money over the course of a couple of years.....and only has to do 270 hours community service and pay a couple of grand in costs?

Seems to me he still wins......
