Teen Buys PS2 on eBay, Receives Whole Heap of Cash Instead

A British teenager who bought a Sony PlayStation 2 on eBay for £95 ($194) got more than he bargained for when he opened the package. Instead of a shiny, happy gaming console, there was a whole heap of euros - €65,400 ($90,000) to be precise - stacked neatly inside. A spokesman for eBay said that the parcel's contents were "somewhat unusual", but that they would help the police in any way they could.

This kid snitched on himself. I would have took the cash and STFU.

I wouuld STFU and tell nobody about it because I know how this works:

You find the money, call the police and they tell you to hand it over.

Instead of giving it back when nobody has reclaimed it, they give you a small share out it.

And your left with nothing

I would be just like this....

He did the right thing informing the police, was honest and that way he kept safe, but if he keep quiet, maybe would not be bad.

I think maybe if he didn't tell anyone some drug dealer or something would have turned up at his doorstep the next day. He probably did try to keep it but his parents found out :)

Now how on earth would anyone be stupid enough to send that kind of money instead of the actual item?

It looks like its a setup or something really dodgy...

SilvaSurfa5418d ago

He reported this. I dont care if it makes him honest or noble... It also makes him one dumb person in my book. Excuse my language

Yea this kid screwed up.

Crazy eBay package though huh?

What you think there was cash stuffed inside for? Drug money?

Who knows.

<EDIT> : LOL. Look at Bill. Taking the moral high road. Ok try and be high and mighty. We all know how understanding you are. Should I post some of your comments?

OK. So maybe an idiot like yourself would think that someone would try to put their life saving into an eBay package. Only someone as stupid as yourself would allow that to happen to their savings.

Just because I reply to your SPAM, you try to come at me with this lame sh1t. F**k off.

Your worthless and you know it.

"no-jizz-like-mo-jizz... ...HHA HHAHHAHA"- When are you going to realize that isn't funny to anyone but your lameass self.

Zero creative points.

How exactly did this "kid" screw up?

This person did the right thing. Good for him. He's got morals.

How do you guys know if all that money wasn't someone's life savings that was stolen and mistakenly place on ebay by some fool.

I have a sense of humor, but it's individuals like you the reason why humans get a bad rep.

no-jizz-like-mo-jizz......HHA HHAHHAHA

A spokesman for eBay said: "We know that eBay is a great place to pick up a bargain, although in this case, we agree that the contents of the parcel were somewhat unusual and we will assist with any inquiries the police may wish to make."

Yeah I guess €65,000 would be unusual. Man just imagine what could be purchased. hmm......
