Xbox360 Scam by ozzysr75
How on earth did they get that may games done and sent back is beyond me.
thats crazy how long they got away with it
fair enough a person returning a game, but not coming into the shop day in day out buying more games and returning the games he bought yesterday - you think it would twig suspicion
Some of the comments after the article are simply "charming"
Never scrolled that far
Am off to Game tomorrow!!!!
Please can someone paste the article, I can't read it, stupid work firewall.
Its not an article its a link to a news feed with a newscaster explaining what they did.
The summary below it is this though
why dont we have wallmart
We do, they own and run Asda.
Different name, same company.
We do, its Asda
Seems to be a lot of negative MS events kicking off recently.
Maybe MS are in on a 'Any publicity is good publicity ' crusade...
Oh the conspiracy.
Personally speaking I wouldn't call people stealing Xbox games negative to Microsoft.
Infact I would even go as far to say its positive as these people could have stolen anything Wii games/Blu-Rays/DVD's etc but chose Xbox360 games.
asda is nothin like walmart but owned by same ppl
I remember Big W in Australia (it was run by woolworths so I expect they are bust to). It was very similar to Walmart and is in no way comparable to Asda. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_W
This news isn't new, people have been running similar scams for years. I've even heard people returning 360 consoles to Walmart with the console replaced with a yellow pages..
i have heard a story of someone taking a console back and there being a car carberetta in the box instead
But sadly quite typical.
Yeah, glad this is mainly a UK forum, as i wish was the case with Youtube etc. rarely a normal decent comment on there,lol
