Hartley set up 11 accounts using different names, according to an eBay spokeswoman.
He was back in court this week after Lancashire Constabulary looked back over six years of scamming. This gave them a total figure of £141, 028.52 in ill-gotten gains. But Hartley has only £102, 206.04 to hand - he must give this to police by 31 July or face another year in jail and then pay back the same amount plus interest.
The court set aside £927.52 for 34 victims of his scams.
Under the rules half of the rest of the money is split between the Crown Prosecution Service, the Magistrates' Court Service and the police - Lancs plod should get around 18 per cent of the takings. ®

A man convicted of swindling more than $259, 000 using fraudulent eBay listings and other venues was ordered to serve 52 months in federal prison and pay $252, 000 in restitution.
Derrick Lee Swantz, 57, of Lakewood, Colorado, was convicted in January of implementing two separate fraud schemes. In one, he offered luxury automobiles for sale on eBay and Autotrader.com. He used the phone and email to communicate with would-be buyers and directed them to make payments by making wire transfers or sending cashier's checks.
Once the payments were made, Swantz didn't deliver the vehicles. Among the autos he advertised were a 1970 Mercedes-Benz 280SE, a 2001 Mercedes-Benz S500, a 2002 Mercedes-Benz S500, and a 1997 Infiniti Q45. The scam netted more $121, 750, according to prosecutors.
In the other scheme, Swantz claimed he could buy used Xerox copiers for low prices and sell them at substantial profits. He'd ask would-be investors for large sums of money so he could purchase and refurbish a particular machine. Victims paid more than $17, 500, according to prosecutors.
Swantz was indicted by a federal grand jury in Denver in October 2007. In January, a jury found him guilty of one count of mail fraud and 27 counts of wire fraud. ®
