He shouldn't have gotten his money back, the buyer was an idiot. He knew it said 'picture' but he decided to buy it anyway.

You'd think at that price he'd at least get a better quality image.

Wait a second...
"19 year old.... his 4 year old..."
Is it really a coincidence this guy got scammed?

Hey, at least at the end of the day, he got his money back, got the vendor banned, and got a good picture of the Xbone. He didn't get totally Xboned after all!

Why would you pay $750 for an XBone anyway?

What a waste, spending that much money on himself under the guise that it was for his 15 year younger son. It was his fault for ignoring the fact that it outright said it was a picture, yet complaining that all he got was a picture. Common issue in retail, but it doesn't make it any less stupid.

Still, nice source of comedy. Even if it does have a bad ending.

Just when I think humanity has reached the pinnacle of stupidity, someone just HAD to go and climb higher.

You let a 1 year old play Marvel Vs Capcom 3?!

Not really surprising, this sort of thing was happening when the Xbox 360 & PS3 came out.

Article title is misleading. This guy was not scammed, he was just stupid.

Oh wow guys! So clever with the usual internet "lol he dum he deserv it!"

Scamming is illegal and wrong, regardless of how well or poorly done it is.

Except that the guy wasn't scammed. The item was clearly identified as a photo of an Xbox One, and the buyer even thought about it for a while before deciding, "No way is someone just selling a photo for that price. Let me just go ahead and blindly purchase this without contacting the seller for clarification or looking for an item that DOESN'T say it's a photo."
