Unless you are not very fond of your money, you will likely read the description of a $ 500 product before you buy it. This is not the case of some bots programmed to collect graphics cards and consoles like the PS5 to resell them at an exorbitant price, the so-called “scalpers”.
Yesterday https://twitter.com/HumansNoContext/status/1336227279110868992 the following listing from an eBay seller: “Sony PlayStation 5 with Disc Drive (PICTURE ONLY) * read description *”. Despite having the console for sale for the usual sale price, more than one decided to heed the title of the ad and read the description before buying the supposed PS5 for $ 500.
The description read the following:
“YOU ARE BUYING A SHEET OF PAPER WITH A PICTURE OF THE PS5 PRINTED ON IT. It’s a picture of Sony’s new PS5 console just out of the printer. It is an image, printed on folded paper and shipped in an envelope. If you are human, DO NOT buy it. If you are a robot, this is a great deal! I repeat: this is an image printed on folded paper and shipped in an envelope. Watch out, humans. I do not accept returns or refunds, do not write to me asking for your money. Don’t write to me saying your son bought this by accident. Learn to read. If you want to buy a real PS5, playable and with electronic components, DO NOT BUY THIS, IT IS JUST A SHEET OF PAPER with an image of the PS5 ”.
At least one user bought the “PS5 (IMAGE ONLY)” of the viral, but a walk through eBay and the cached ads on Google suggest that other sellers made the same move, and that dozens of buyers fell into the trap. Humans? Or bots? That’s harder to figure out, but the lesson is for both scalpers and legitimate users who buy without reading.
Jokes aside, the topic of resellers turns everyone upside down, even retailers, like Gamewoori – a South Korean store that has decided systematically cancel all PS5 pre-orders if you find that the buyer has put them up for sale for a higher price on the internet.
