EADS, TN (WMC-TV) - A Lakeland man busted for selling bogus remedies will see most of his belongings put up for auction Saturday.

Officials will auction off nearly everything Perry Belcher owns Saturday in an attempt to pay back more than a million dollars he took from victims.

Perry Belcher is now serving 10 years probation for his crimes.

Among the items up for auction is Belcher's former home in Eads, which has four bedrooms and four and a half baths.  More than nine acres that surround it are also up for grabs.

If that's not enough, also up for auction are classic cars, four-wheelers, flat screen televisions, and more.

Before his arrest, Belcher boasted on YouTube about how much money he made from his internet business.

"I'm sure we can make the mortgage payment on our house from what we make on Ebay," he said in one video. "And this is quite a house."

Prosecutors say while Belcher lived it up in his Eads house, he preyed on people desperate for medical cures.  Investigators say his products turned out to be household spices only worth a few bucks.

Last year, Action News 5 spoke to a victim from Lake Tahoe, who paid hundreds of dollars for a product Belcher's website claimed would help with fertility.

"He's preying on people's misfortunes," the victim said. "I wish he were in their shoes."

Now, with all his stuff up for sale, prosecutors hope Belcher is.
