"Dr. Phil" Shoplifters -- eBay Entreprenuers

3/31/2009 2:29 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It looks like eBay could also stand for electronic black market -- because the couple who confessed to being professional shoplifters on "Dr. Phil" just happen to have sold a TON of stuff on the website.

Dr Phil

An eBay account connected to the address of Matthew Eaton -- whose house was raided after he and his wife appeared on "Dr. Phil" -- shows an unbelievable 628 positive feedbacks (and only 1 negative) on items sold in the last year.

During Matt's filmed shoplifting trip on "Phil," he guessed he had stolen around $700 of "mostly Lego stuff" -- and there just happens to be, coincidentally, a ton of Lego stuff sold on this eBay account... over $5,000 worth in March alone.

I don't get it. I Believe the show aired last November and they were still selling items on Ebay through March of THIS year?
Doesnt sound like they wanted to stop that bad. And it took the cops that long to find them? are u sure TMZ this the right Ebay account?

TO BLOGGER # 11, IT'S IMPOSSIBLE TO LOVE JANET JACKSON IF YOU'RE FROM ATLANTA BECAUSE ATLANTA IS FULL OF "DOWN LOW" PEOPLE.

ANYWAY, GOOD JOB DR. PHIL...

MORE CRIMINALS OFF OUR AMERICAN STREETS. EXCELLENT.

Well, he took his "job" seriously for awhile is which is more than most entrepaneurs do. But what a dumb move to go on TV. If you're gonna be a crook...at least be a good one.
Ebay has become iffy...more often than not you don't find a good dealt there anymore. People have gotten greedy and I've seen stupid people bid up and pay way more than you can buy the item new online elsewhere. Especially if you add in shipping.
What's the old addage? There's a sucker born every minute.
