Some peoples integrity levels certainly are lacking. Hopefully Paypal can intervene if a dispute is raised.
It can depend on the exact sellers listing description.
I remember when the Xbox 360 was launched and quite a few were duped into buying a picture of it and the buyers didn't read the sellers description correctly.
My friend recently sold an iPhone box on eBay. Clearly said it was the box only and pit it up for bidding. £300 o and after the buyer won it they asked if the iPhone was properly unlocked. My friend allowed the bidder to retract.
Notice the 'news' article doesn't actually disclose what the listing actually said. I'd imagine he's up the proverbial creek when it comes to getting a refund.
As for thinking he would actually get something worth £1500 for £300? I think he deserved to be conned.
