Teen Robbed During eBay Transaction

A Detroit teen was robbed at gunpoint when he met the person who sold him an item on eBay on Saturday afternoon, according to Southfield police.

The 17-year-old Aric Adams was the winning bidder for a pair of $1,100 Cartier sunglasses. The person who placed the item on eBay told him to meet at the entrance of an apartment complex at Providence and 9 Mile roads. When he arrived, the seller called from a restricted phone number and told him to wait there, according to police.

"I hear footsteps coming up to me, so I turn around and I get hit with a gun on the side of my neck. I fall on the ground and then two men were just kicking me on the floor. The other person, who had the gun on my face, he was looking for the money in my pockets. As soon as they got the money, they ran off," said Adams.

This is very fishy. I found the original deal, item number220164801359 . The seller is now NARU and the teen took time to leave feedback about the robbery. These glasses were his first sale.

We're not getting all the facts here, for sure.
