Suspect Charged in Computer Scam

A Jackson man has been charged in Meridian for allegedly trying to sell phony laptop computers.

Meridian police arrested 21-year-old Brenton Samuel Taylor, stemming from a reported incident in November 2009.

Taylor is alleged to have attempted selling counterfeit laptop computers. He was charged with forgery/uttering of counterfeit instruments.

Police say people who bought the fake computers often found that the box make with a brand name company contained a school type notebook filled with loose leaf paper.

Taylor was held under a $10,000 bond, but later bonded out of jail.

    A guy tried to pull this scam on me on 22 avenue back in Nov. "Laptop" was in smaller toshiba box inside a FED EX shipping box. Said he just got off work at Fed Ex. When i asked him to open the Toshiba box to inspect the laptop he rolled up the window and left. Why people buy stuff on the street without looking at it?
