eBay Seller Arrested For Not Delivering $93,000 Worth Of Merchandise

SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- A 33-year-old e-Bay seller has been arrested on allegations he sold more than $93,000 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, Calif., 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 said Vartanian would send buyers an empty envelope or blank sheet of paper.

1. Bob Dylan sang it best
Nothing was delivered
And I tell this truth to you,
Not out of spite or anger
But simply because it's true.
Now, I hope you won't object to this,
Giving back all of what you owe,
The fewer words you have to waste on this,
The sooner you can go.

Nothing is better, nothing is best,
Take heed of this and get plenty of rest.

Nothing was delivered
But I can't say I sympathize
With what your fate is going to be,
Yes, for telling all those lies.
Now you must provide some answers
For what you sell has not been received,
And the sooner you come up with them,
The sooner you can leave.

Nothing is better, nothing is best,
Take heed of this and get plenty rest.

(Now you know)
Nothing was delivered
And it's up to you to say
Just what you had in mind
When you made ev'rybody pay.
No, nothing was delivered,
Yes, 'n' someone must explain
That as long as it takes to do this
Then that's how long that you'll remain.

Nothing is better, nothing is best,
Take heed of this and get plenty rest.
