On Saturday night a teenager reported to authorities that he was robbed at gunpoint when an interested purchaser showed up at his home to pick up and pay for a purse he had listed for sale through an online application.
The 16-year-old boy created a listing on a third party online sales application known as “Let Go” in an attempt to find a buyer for a Louis Vuitton designer purse. He priced the bag at $300, though its actual worth was approximately $20 as it was an imitation of the original.
Soon after posting it the teen was contacted by a man interested in the handbag. After haggling on the asking price the prospective buyer and the boy agreed on $250 and the two made arrangements to carry out the transaction. They decided that the man would come to the boy’s home to pay for and pick up the purse.
