Wow! Glad he got his money back. I hope the seller was banned from selling anything on eBay again.

Despite the listing stating it was a photo of an XBox One Day One edition console,

I wouldn't have given him his money back

The 19-year-old student, of Bilborough, had saved up in order to buy a limited edition Day One version of the console as a surprise Christmas present for his four-year-old son, McKenzie.

I don't like stereotyping people, but perhaps there was a very good reason he was stupid enough to pay £450 for a picture of an xbox?

Someone posted a image of the E-Bay listing and the title says :Xbox One Fifa Day One Edition, Photo Brand New UK 2013

Then you have a product description that says the item is a new, unused and unopened item in its original retail packaging so unless I missed something, nowhere does it say that the product is actually just a photo because if it was then E-Bay is also shares a bit of responsibility for allowing a seller to deliberately deceive its customers.

So unless I am missing something, I fail to see why the customer should be punished for the sellers deception.

To be fair who in their right mind would expect the listing to be just a photo. The seller was way out of line and no doubt would have been booted off the site when found out. I'm glad the guy got his money back.

An eBay scam victim who paid £450 for a photo of an Xbox One finally got his hands on the prized console - after a sympathetic games shop gave him one for free.

People who put up items like those intend for the "idiot in a hurry" situation or some sort of confusion in order to get the equivalent of money for the item. I believe that is a violation of evans TOS and he got his money back as he should have.
