    legitimate ebay listing?

    29 Comments

    Who knows? EBay is so full of hacked accounts it's hard to yes or no, just make sure you pay via PayPal so you can get your money back, even better collect it with cash on collection

    Maybe an unwanted gift, and a quick sale is desired. It all looks OK, but you won't get it for a month.

    their feedback shows 2 ps4s being sold and received and lots of DVDs, might be someone with staff discount and vouchers with a retailer.

    If they have accepted an offer that low I would say it's a scam.

    The only console they have sold is their own ps4 console. The rest is their dvd's, and a pair of their shoes.

    Agreed - Although if you do go for it, record it being delivered all the way through to opening it - that way you'll have proof if they do try to scam you

    I wouldn't risk it at all.

    Smyths and Argos sell it for £249.99 so yes probably

    ​that 500gb, this is 1tb

    As he has low feedback he won't get the money until you give feedback or 7-21 days have passed.

    Pay with PayPal and see what happens

    post saying cash ok I live in Barry. see what he says.

    ​he's got decent feedback though and there's PayPal seller protection

    100% scam, Wouldn't waste my time personally but you're covered when it doesn't turn up.

    It's easy to say that, it's a scam no doubt. Upto you what you do as you seem to want to press ahead with it.

    I doubt buying wholesale will be that cheap

    Don't fall for it, what they will do is muck you around for a month, by that time eBay and PayPal won't help you with a refund. The Xbox one S 1tb would be more than £200 even at wholesale cost.

    looks very fake. have seen it a few times before, they never deliver as far as I can see. I'm sure we can all come back to this thread in a month and see 9 negatives and a no longer registered mark.
    9 very underpriced Xboxes from someone with no feedback (17 is as good as zero in this instance). brand new account. no similar selling history but already one negative! that's as many as i've had in 10 years with almost 1000 fb.
    you *should* be covered in the event of it going pear, but it's a wait, maybe a bit of legwork, and still a bit of a risk
    and an offer of £150 was accepted!!!! everything about this reeks 'scam' - IF you had someone who could get you wholesale prices, and had been naive about paypal fees, eBay fees etc, there's no way you could manage to knock almost 40% off, or reason you would at the rate they sold, unless you were just looking to scam numpties


    i hope you haven't paid! just pull out of the transaction, if eBay want to tell you off, tell them to refer to the status of the other buyers in mid sept

    He says in his listing that they will not be posted until 19th of September so money will have cleared, Op its a scam as many have said walk away.

    Must of missed that bit mate. I wouldn't buy it in that case.

    He doesn't. It's a scam...

    Even if he managed to get the console wholesale he would be losing money by selling it to you at that price.

    If he could get the console directly from Microsoft he wouldn't be making much per unit, if anything.
