The online auction eBay has taken seriously the scammers who post advertisements on the website for the allegedly opened PlayStation 5. In fact, dishonest people only put up an empty box – the shortage of consoles on the market is so great.
The funny thing is that due to the huge demand, some scammers do not even hide that they are selling only a box. But they offer free shipping!
Despite claims from eBay, some lots are still available for purchase, however, the site reported that no payment was made. And it will not, since these ads do not comply with the site’s policy.
We are taking steps to remove fraudulent ads from our marketplace. We encourage buyers to exercise caution and carefully read product descriptions for items that are particularly high-value or high-demand.
However, eBay will provide a refund if the payment was made on the marketplace.
On this occasion, the media recalled how in 2013 a resident of Nottinghamshire bought a piece of paper with an image of Xbox One on eBay for 450 pounds .
