but the ebay page clearly stated it was just a photo... he should have read it :/
#11 to #8 - mechathefourth (12/10/2013) [-]
He did read it.
User avatar #12 to #11 - VincentKing ONLINE (12/10/2013) [-]
then why purchase it, and then bitch about it afterwards?
#13 to #12 - mechathefourth (12/10/2013) [-]
He thought it was a joke/mistake
User avatar #14 to #13 - VincentKing ONLINE (12/10/2013) [-]
ok, so by this logic, I shall now purchase my own photo of something, and then complain until I get the actual thing for free...
User avatar #26 to #14 - redtooth (12/10/2013) [-]
It says "XBox One Fifa 14 Day One, Photo Brand New UK 2013" as the name of the product.

The comma is misleading and indicates that the photo of the product is new, while the product is actually an XBox One Fifa 14 Day One edition or whatever the dude was trying to buy.

He did read it, and he did ask about it. The seller told him it was a genuine Xbox console, which he lied about.

Seriously? We're rewarding stupidity now?
User avatar #66 to #15 - Tenkan (12/10/2013) [-]
There are many stupid people out there, but that doesn't mean we shouldn't help them.

We've all been 'stupid' once in our life, and not all of us are fortunate enough to have someone to teach us or help us.

Like it was his fault?

I take it you've never heard of Jersey Shore?
User avatar #68 to #15 - bjornkrage (12/10/2013) [-]
Jersey shore, The Kardashians, etc.

you get the picture.

#27 to #25 - comradewinter ONLINE (12/10/2013) [-]
He asked if it said "photo" by mistake, and if it was an actual XBox. The seller said yes.

Which means he wasn't stupid enough to buy something that said photo without enquiring about it.
User avatar #36 to #27 - eddymolly (12/10/2013) [-]
Really? I hadn't seen that anywhere, the only stuff i'd seen was pictures of the listing itself where it says picture.
#37 to #36 - comradewinter ONLINE (12/10/2013) [-]
Said so on an article. Can't find it now anymore, though.

It gives a brief explanation here:

games.yahoo.com/blogs/plugged-in/man-buys-picture-xbox-one-750-200637663.html

That he was suspicious and spent time reading the sellers feedback and checking the item category. Technically, you are entitled to a refund when the seller lies about the category itself, as it was listed as a console and not a photography.
User avatar #41 to #37 - eddymolly (12/10/2013) [-]
I knew it was in the wrong category, but I didn't know if he actually messaged. You are entitled to return anything you buy online anyhow within 28 days in the UK, it doesn't matter if you bought it thinking it would be something else or just don't like it.

Also, if someone posts something that says "Picture" and you buy it thinking its the actual thing, you're still pretty stupid. It seems pretty obvious that it wasn't an actual Xbox. Even though the seller seemed pretty good, chances are someone would list something in the wrong category rather than put up the wrong title and description, so it just seems a bit stupid to me that he bought it anyhow based on "the fact it was in the right category made me think it was genuine".


I dunno, it just seems a bit rediculous that this guy got a free Xbox basically for being an idiot

I have no idea who this is.

he wanted to buy a xbox on ebay for (I think) 300 dollars and all he got was an image of the xbox
#62 to #39 - anon (12/10/2013) [-]
I'm pretty sure that's Wally West.

Wally West is Kid Flash.
That's Barry Allen.

CEX is a British games/console/gadgets store
Is it just me or is that CEX guy considerably handsome.

-Some guy is stupid
-"Let's give him a reward"

But why?
#20 to #19 - themonkeyfrompluto (12/10/2013) [-]
anyone could have fallen for that
#24 to #20 - anon (12/10/2013) [-]
It said it was a picture in the listing...
User avatar #21 to #20 - Nightinear **User deleted account** (12/10/2013) [-]
So?
Why would anyone reward that?
#22 to #21 - themonkeyfrompluto (12/10/2013) [-]
empathy? Some people do it for their own good karma or w/e
User avatar #16 - ssurtrebor **User deleted account** (12/10/2013) [-]
Wait, wait, wait. This is not good news.

They didn't make the universe right, nor is he being rewarded for some great deed. The Ebay page specifically said it was a picture of an Xbox One, and he still went ahead and bought it. He should not be getting a free one for being an idiot.

That store clerk is attractive as **** , no homo

-teenage dad
something tells me xbone isnt the only thing in life he's losing at.
#84 - blockman (12/11/2013) [-]
So let me get this straight...
This 19 year old "man" bought a XBOX one for his "4 year old son"?
I'm I the only one that sees what's wrong about that sentence btw?
Not only that, he gets his money back and he gets a free XBOX one ...for his son?

Rewarding stupidity at it's finest.
#78 - anon (12/11/2013) [-]
Teenage dad - probably also lives off the government, this guy has it all.
User avatar #71 - drunkasaurus (12/10/2013) [-]
in other good news, the guy that sold him the picture can now afford a better printer
#44 - vandettamask (12/10/2013) [-]
This is just free advertizement for the xbone.


Nothing wrong with it, but that dude shouldn't have been rewarded for his stupidity.
User avatar #40 - Bion ONLINE (12/10/2013) [-]
The way the guy dramatically ********* the camera is what bothers me more than anything.

And obviously it was a scam and he should get his money back for it, but getting a free XBONE for no reason after, is kinda stupid.

Don't you dare reference the Sex-Kex debate. I've lost too many friends over it!
User avatar #35 to #7 - trishaferr (12/10/2013) [-]
Personally, I thinks the Sex/Kex thing is ******** . It's a ******* abbreviation, it's supposed to be said exactly the way it's written: "See-Eee-Ex"
