Youth pays over $900 for a photo of gaming console online

A youth is furious after mistakenly buying a photo of a computer console online.

According to Nothing To Do With Arbroath, Peter Clatworthy thought he had paid £450 ($919) for an XBox One console on eBay, but received a picture of the console instead.

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

Even though the listing stated it was a photo of an XBox One Day One edition console, Mr Clatworthy said he expected to receive the console as it was listed in the video games and consoles category on eBay.

Mr Clatworthy received the photo in the post and said, "They'd written on the back of it 'thank you for your purchase'. I was fuming."

He has now contested the purchase with eBay, which has investigated and stated he should get a full refund from the seller.
