British Teen Bought a Picture of an XBox One For Just $735 on eBay

xbox-teenPeter Clatworthy, a 19-year old in Nottingham, England, wanted to buy a special edition XBox One for his 4-year old son for Christmas. So he went on eBay and thought he found one listed for £450 ($734.72). When the package came in the mail, it was a picture of an XBox One with “thank you for your purchase” written on the back. Clatowrthy was duped by a seller who had sneaked the word “photo” into the title of the listing. From the Nottingham Post:

“It said ‘photo’ and I was in two minds, 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.

“It’s obvious now I’ve been conned out of my money.”

Despite getting exactly what he paid for, eBay is helping Clatworthy get a full refund.
