EBay Arrest

E-Bay arrest for failure to deliver $93,000 in Rolexes, tickets

A 33-year-old e-Bay seller has been arrested on allegations he sold more than 93-thousand dollars worth of Rolex watches and professional sports tickets but failed to deliver the goods. Gilbert Vartanian was indicted earlier by a federal grand jury but the charges were sealed until he was arrested in Fremont, California, on 12 counts of mail fraud. In addition to the watches, he is alleged to have sold tickets for pro football and basketball games as well as boxing and auto racing events. Prosecutors say Vartanian would send buyers an empty envelope or blank sheet of paper.
