Man gets two-year term for eBay scam

A former Sacramento man has been sentenced to two years in prison after bilking eBay consumers out of more than $93,000.

Gilbert Vartanian, 37, was sentenced Monday in federal court following his Aug. 7 conviction of committing fraud on eBay, according to a news release by the office of U.S. Attorney McGregor Scott.

Vartanian was found guilty on nine counts of mail fraud for selling, but never delivering, professional basketball and football tickets and Rolex watches.
