Kid Spends $740 For A Picture Of An X-Box One On eBay

Posted on Updated on


Meet 19-year old Peter Clatworthy. He doesn’t look happy, does he? That’s because Peter paid £450 (~$740) for a shittily printed picture of an X-Box One on eBay. I’d be pissed too — somebody needs to replace the black toner cartridges in their printer. Plus the right side of the image is missing! I’m not paying $740 for 3/4’s of a picture.

“I always buy stuff on eBay and this had never happened before.”

Despite the listing stating it was a photo of an XBox One Day One edition console, Mr Clatworthy said he’d expected to receive the console as it was listed in the video games and consoles category on eBay.

He said: “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.

Mr Clatworthy received the photo in the post on Monday, saying: “They’d written on the back of it ‘thank you for your purchase’. I was fuming.”

Mr Clatworthy was informed by eBay yesterday that, as he paid via PayPal, he can expect to receive a full refund from the seller, who has until Monday to pay up.

A spokesman for eBay, the online marketplace, said: “We don’t allow listings which mislead, and will take action against this seller.

Well, you did bid on a listing that stated it was a picture of an X-Box — that was your bad. That said, if I’d done the same thing and gotten that picture then read the ‘Thank you for your purchase’ on the back I would track that f***er down and make them eat that piece of paper. WHILE ON FIRE. “Them or the paper?” Everything they’ve ever loved.

Thanks to (No Sender), who is obviously shy.
