A Callaway man has been indicted by a Franklin County grand jury on two additional felony charges and eight misdemeanor charges in connection with an internet scam.

Jeffrey Lynn Overstreet, 45, was indicted Monday on one count of obtaining money under false pretense (fraud) and one count of money laundering as another potential victim has come forward.

The misdemeanor charges include three counts of operating a business without a dealer certificate and five counts of failing to file income tax returns.

Overstreet already faced 24 felony counts of fraud and money laundering from indictments filed in June and August.

Overstreet allegedly used an online auction site between July 2008 and February 2012 to offer auto parts for late 1960s Chevrolet vehicles, according to Assistant Commonwealth's Attorney Patrick Nix.

"Essentially, the allegations are that Overstreet was offering the parts over the internet, receiving money from buyers but never sending the parts to the buyers," Nix said.

At some point, Overstreet was banned from the internet auction site, and that was when he allegedly continued the scam by using other people's names and banking accounts to transfer the money, Nix said.

An indictment is not a finding of guilt. It is a determination by jurors that enough evidence exists to warrant a trial.
