Just how much are people taking advantage of the XBox 360 shortage? If you thought selling these things for over $1,000 on eBay was bad, you haven’t seen caitlincutie’s auction.

This seller put up a listing for an “XBOX 360 PREMIUM PACKAGE” and gave a complete description of the item. The only catch? In the last few lines they snuck in:

This auction is not for a Xbox 360 game system, but instead a picture of one.

Wow. One hell of a sneaky fraud. This seller stole £470 from some poor guy who ended up with a photo at the end of the day.

Is that all your soul goes for caitlincuite? £470?
