Man Stupidly, Knowingly, Buys a Picture of an Xbox One Off eBay For £450

By Gerald Lynch on at

There are many scammers out there on the web, and some of them look deceptively legitimate before disappointingly failing to deliver the goods. Which is what makes having sympathy for Nottingham's Peter Clatworthy difficult: if a £450 eBay listing clearly states it's for a picture of an Xbox One, then you should bloody well expect to receive a picture of an Xbox One for your £450.

"It said 'photo' and I was in two minds," 19-year old Clatworthy told the Nottingham Post. "But I looked at the description and the fact it was in the right category made me think it was genuine. I looked at the seller's feedback and there was nothing negative. I bought it there and then because I thought it was a good deal."

Well Peter, if you highly value A4 pictures of an Xbox One console printed from a home office inkjet printer that's clearly lacking a black ink cartridge, I'd say you've found yourself a pretty good deal there. [Nottingham Post]
