What could be more heartbreaking than opening your brand new PS4 on Christmas day only to find a block of wood inside? Few things would be as traumatic as that for a kid on the biggest kid day of the year.
This is what happened to Scott Lundy from Wakefield, MA. andit is downright cruel. He probably waited weeks, maybe months, anticipating this gift. The PlayStation 4 under the Christmas tree only had a PS4-shaped bit of wood.
To add insult to injury, it also came with a nasty seasonal greeting. Seems like the Grinch was hard at work this year. The message? Apparently it read, “from c*ck and balls with love.” And just in case the recipient didn’t get that, it came with an illustration of these anatomical parts. Nice. You really are evil Mr Grinch.
Lundy did what any kid would do. He cried. Lundy’s parents took it back to the branch of Target where they’d purchased it, and were given a legit console plus a $100 gift card, so at least it ended well. It seems like we hear stories like this every year as scammers rig boxes with phony products. At least we had a happy ending here.
