Free Xbox One for Teenager Duped in eBay Scam

UK tech chain donates console to teen who spent £450 on a picture of an Xbox One. 

UK student Peter Clatworthy has been gifted a new Xbox One console after news of his predicament reached UK tech retailer CeX, according to the Nottingham Post. Last week it was reported Clatworthy was the victim of an eBay scam which saw him pay £450 (approximately USD$735/AUD$800) for a picture of an Xbox One.

Clatworthy claimed he noted the listing mentioned it was a ‘photo’ but, as it was in eBay’s videogame and consoles category, he did not anticipate being conned.

“I’m just overwhelmed by the reaction to the story,” Clatworthy said.

“All I wanted was a refund. I cannot believe this.”

Clatworthy has already received a full refund with eBay’s assistance and the website has banned the seller from the service.
