Peter Clatworthy, 19, who fell for an eBay scam. He paid £450 for an Xbox One console, which he was buying as a Christmas present for his four-year-old son. But instead of receiving a console this week, the seller posted him a photo of one. See NTI story NTIXBOX. A dad-of-one who forked out GBP450 on a new XBox One for his son for Christmas has been left devastated after he fell victim of an eBay scam – and received a PHOTO of the console instead. Gutted Peter Clatworthy, 19, purchased what he thought was the much-sought after games console from the popular auction site on November 28 . The student had saved up the cash in order to buy a limited edition Day One version of the in-demand console for his four-year-old son McKenzie. But he was stunned when a grainy picture of an XBox printed on A4 landed on his door-step on Monday (2/10). To add insult to injury, on the back of the paper Mr Clatworthy purchased, the seller wrote ëthank you for your purchaseí. After checking the listing on the eBay website Peter soon realised he had fallen victim to a cruel con. The misleading ad listed under the “video games and consoles” category states the item as “XBox One Fifa Day One Edition, Photo Brand New UK 2012” next to an image of the console.
