Jacksonville Man Allegedly Defrauds Hundreds Using Web site

Police arrest a Jacksonville man accused of defrauding hundreds of people using a company website.

Jacksonville police said Brent Hallford, 40, was operating a trading-card collectibles website, where people would order and pay for merchandise, but never receive the items. 

So far, police said they have learned of more than 400 victims from the Better Business Bureau in Tyler.  Police said the website has been disabled.  Hallford has been charged with three counts of credit card abuse and two counts of debit card abuse, but more charges are expected.
