Uniontown Man Indicted on Mail Fraud Charges

A Fayette County man was indicted Wednesday on eight counts of mail fraud for allegedly selling more than $38,000 worth of items during Internet auctions, collecting money, but not delivering the goods.

Jason D. Joy, 38, of 20 Lexington Ave., Uniontown, caused a loss of $38,036.76 and faces 160 years in prison, a fine of $2 million, or both, said assistant U.S. Attorney Paul E. Hull.

The U.S. Postal Inspection Service and the Federal Bureau of Investigation conducted the investigation leading to Joy's indictment.
