    Police investigating a massive online shopping scam have arrested around 90 people across Romania.

    The suspects are accused of cheating online shoppers of an estimated $20m (£12.4m) by selling fictitious goods on sites such as eBay and Craigslist.org.

    Hundreds of victims, most of them in the United States, paid for their purchases, but never received them.

    The article states the number of possible scammed shoppers was 1,000. Typo?
