Xbox Box goes for £115 on Ebay

An Xbox box went for £115 on ebay recently.

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...ayphotohosting


Here is the description:

"Up for auction is a mint condition, limited edition Xbox box. It has No scuffs or marks and looks rather nice. Use it to impress your friends by making them think you have a spiffing brand new crystal xbox sat at home, or carry it around town in a see through carrier bag to be the envy of geeks everywhere. This is the must have accesory for gamers. "

The person that bought it is not happy. CHeck the feedback. MAde me smile.

Hahah, some people are such fucking dumb asses.

Kudos to the dude who has just sold a cardboard box for 120 notes, I'm off in the loft to see what empty boxes I might have that are worth selling

Best part is the difference between the minimum bid and the final price.

I saw something very similar on the news last Christmas. Some lady bought a PS2 from Wal-Mart (I think). Her kid opens the box Christmas morning, extremely excited for his brand-new console to find it filled with empty quarts of oil. Since it was Christmas, the store was closed, so what does she do? Call the TV station's Consumer Action team and has them whine to the store until the PS2 is replaced. A happy ending, I guess, except for the fact that it was a PS2...

How does one obtain a 92.6% seller's rating then turn around and fuck someone over like that?
God, I hate my species for preying on tards.

It's decent. But selling a photo? Sweet heavens above...

Didn't this happen at launch as well? I bet this guy was laughing when he heard the story a few years ago and now he fell for the same scam.
