UK teen purchases Xbox One picture for £450 on eBay

This is more a warning than anything else – if you are purchasing any next generation console, either a PS4 or Xbox One, from eBay or any other online platform, then beware of the scammers.

Case in point: UK teenager Peter Clatworthy who purchased a very poor quality picture of a Xbox One console for £450 on eBay. Yes, the listing description apparently said that it was for a picture, but it seems Paul ignored this and hit the purchase button anyway.

When a picture (and only a picture) eventually arrived he was understandably annoyed. But given that scammers are obviously going to be attempting things like this given the console supply shortages we’re not too sure why he wasn’t more dubious…

Anyway, we hope that our readers are a little more astute. Be careful out there!
