Key Word: "Drugs"

[quote] When Martha Gafden won an online auction for an album by a popular disco group, what she received in the mail turned out to be something very different.

"Instead of getting my Bee Gees LP," Gafden says, "I got a package with four ounces of marijuana inside."

Gafden says she thought the auction was expensive, but she really wanted the album.

"I'm a big fan," she says.

Gafden unwittingly participated in one of an increasing number of "key word" auctions on the popular Internet site eBay. Under investigation by federal officials, Key Word auctions sell not the merchandise apparently listed but illegal drugs.

[quote] "I didn't even know what it was," she says. Gafden's sixteen year-old son told her the package contained marijuana. That's when she called the police.
