YOU SHOULD ALWAYS READ THE PRODUCT DESCRIPTION CAREFULLY SO YOU DO NOT BE SCAMMED
PS5 has been on the market for a few months now; however, one of these consoles is still difficult to obtain.
This lack of inventory has helped a few resellers make extra money, but on the darker side, scammers have also benefited.
Recently, a fraud was discovered that several buyers are falling victim to, as they offer a PS5 but in reality they only send the empty box.
Although shopping online is relatively safe, stories appear from time to time where customers find strange things like drinks, paper, and even gadgets other than what they ordered.
In the worst cases some buyers receive empty boxes, and precisely this problem is becoming common within eBay, which has already issued an alert due to the large number of scams.
PS5 EMPTY BOX SCAMS
Several sellers on this site offer empty PS5 boxes up for auction, and while most of them do so for the sake of jokes, others deliberately seek to mislead buyers.
The boxes sell for up to $ 1,300.
With prices that even exceed a thousand dollars, these sales attracted the attention of eBay, who decided to suspend them and issued an alert for users.
The problem occurs for both the PS5 and Xbox Series X, which are difficult to find in stores due to their shortage.
This is not the first time that a case similar to eBay has occurred, as in 2013 a man bought the photograph of an Xbox One for just over $ 600.
Although online stores have various controls to try to stop scammers, we recommend that you always read the product descriptions carefully.
We know you die for a PS5, but it would not be a bad idea to wait a bit until they have stock instead of risking buying it from a private person.
