Man scammed into buying a photo on an Xbox One for £450
Silly Peter. However, the season of goodwill is upon us and the high street's CeX felt sorry for him and decided that they would donate an Xbox One to him in time for Christmas, ensuring that he can ignore his entire family in favour of playing Call Of Duty: Ghosts.
Peter said: "I'm just overwhelmed by the reaction to the story. All I wanted was a refund. I cannot believe this."
So how did this all come about? Well, Clatworthy saved up to get his hands on a limited-edition, Day One version of the Xbox One as a surprise for his four-year-old son, McKenzie. He paid the asking price and the packaging and waited. However, the listing itself actually stated that it was a picture of an Xbox for sale, which Peter clearly missed.
Clatworthy also managed to get a full refund with the help of eBay, which is remarkable. The seller has been banned from the website, even though it seems Peter is the only one who has strictly done something wrong here.
Either way, he's happy now and talking about CeX’s generosity, he added: "This shows there are some nice, kind people out there and it’s really overwhelming. I can’t thank them enough. I've had other people contact me to say they have been stung too but not reported it. I don’t think I’ll be shopping online anymore."
He's doing so well up until that last point wasn't he? Anyway, The Mirror have pictures of Peter Clatworthy and his Xbox if you'd like to see him looking sad next to a hedge.
Do make sure you read eBay listings properly if you're buying your presents online.
