    British dad scammed into paying 450 for a picture of XBox

    A British man attempting to buy XBOX one on eBay paid 450 just to receive a picture of the xbox console. The scammed man's story had become major news, so much that the electronics company CeX decided to donate him a console on their own.

    A dad who was scammed into paying 450 for a picture of an Xbox One has been given the console by a generous retailer.

    Peter Clatworthy thought he had paid for one of the in-demand consoles on eBay, but actually received a picture of one from the seller.

    High street electronics company CeX was so touched by Peter's case that bosses have decided to donate an Xbox One to him in time for Christmas.

    Staff at CeX’s store Nottingham presented him with the console on Saturday.

    Peter said: “I’m just overwhelmed by the reaction to the story.

    “All I wanted was a refund. I cannot believe this.”

    He had saved up to buy a limited-edition Xbox One Day One version of the console as a surprise Christmas present for his four-year-old son, McKenzie.

    He made the purchase on November 28, paying the asking price of 450 plus 8 packaging.

    Despite the listing stating it was a photo of an Xbox One Day One edition console, Peter said he expected to receive the console as it was listed in the video games and consoles category on eBay.
