A 19-year old Nottingham resident fell for the whole "sell a picture of an expensive thing" con, the Nottingham Post reports. Instead of a new Xbox One for his four-year old, he got a picture that looked like it came out of a printer with low ink levels.
Fortunately for him, he received a full refund, while the seller has been banned from eBay.
I guess, in the end, he Xbox won.
