If you know anything about gaming you will know that the xbox 360 will be almost impossible to get hold of this Christmas. In fact the only place you will probably have success is eBay. As long as you are prepared to pay.
This is fine as at least if you want an xbox the chances are you will get one. However, this causes a problem. There are scammers out there to fleece you out of your hard earned cash.
While browsing the xbox 360 listings I noticed an alarming amount of auctions simply selling a picture of an xbox or an email address or simply a web link. The worst thing was some of these items were bid up to over £300. Obviously there are going to be some very disappointed people out there and this will only damage eBay's reputation. However, the listings clearly state what the item is and some would say if you are stupid enough not to read the item properly there is no wrong doing. I would have to disagree as the titles are misleading and it is a scam.
So what can I do to avoid being scammed?
As long as you are careful you should have no problems and you will get that xbox 360 in time for Christmas.
