Empty Box For Sale

from the sucks-to-be-the-sucker dept

I first saw this on Friday in NTK, and passed it on to a few folks who all thought it was fairly amusing (if questionably legal). Now, The Register has written about it, which makes it fair game for Techdirt. Some guy (while everyone was hunting down Playstation 2’s in late December) put up an eBay auction offering “Playstation 2 Original Box And Receipt”. Of course, it turns out what he meant was exactly that. It’s just the box and the receipt he was selling – and not the gaming system. Needless to say, the sucker who paid $425 for the box and receipt is, well, pissed off. Here’s the original auction and here’s the feedback he received when the empty box was delivered.
