Such is the popularity of Sony’s $499 PlayStation 5, scalpers are making a fortune reselling the console for nearly double what it’s worth. But what if someone wants to make a profit, while keeping the console for themselves?
As Fox13 reports, one man in Utah has experienced just such a scenario. He purchased a PS5 on eBay after paying an eye-watering $878. What arrived in the post was an official PS5 box and what felt weighty enough to be the new console inside. However, when he opened the box there was nothing but a concrete block. Potentially the most expensive concrete block ever sold.
The man is remaining nameless, but contacted the Orem Police Department to report the crime. In response, the police rightly suggested the man contact eBay because under its buyer/seller protections he should expect to receive a full refund. It’s then up to eBay to recoup the money the seller stole through the malicious listing.
Both the new PlayStation and Xbox consoles continue to sell out as soon as new stock arrives at retailers. There are ways to beat the rush and score one of the new machines, but it’s going to take some patience and a bit of luck to secure one (that’s not a concrete block) in time for Christmas.
