I can't say that I'm surprised.  I know someone who used to work there.

I never was a big fan of Hank Lee's "Magic Factory." I thought his items  were 
overpriced, and the product descriptions were "over-hyped"- e.g. I'd order  
something from there and when it finally arrived the "gimic" seemed very flimsy 
 
or minimal or unsubstantial even though I had paid a good price for it with  
shipping. 

 
My guess is Hank Lee's victim is Richard Garriott, an very  wealthy video game 
developer and space tourist, who has magic as his  hobby and appeared on the 
cover of the January, 2008 issue of MUM. "Hank Lee"  (Harry Levy) the magic 
dealer has already pled guilty and will have to pay  restitution (over 
$561,927+?) and faces jail time up to 20 years (but  prosecutors will seek a 
sentence at the "low end of sentencing guidelines" the  article states). Still 
sad, have no idea if the business will keep going or who  will buy there. I am 
sure all the magic magazines will miss his monthly full  page ads.
