Man Buys Playstation 4, But That’s Not What Was In The Box
It wasn’t quite getting coal for Christmas, but it was pretty close.

Can you imagine purchasing an expensive item only to find out it was a box of rocks?

That was the case in Colorado. A Stapleton man thought he was buying a PlayStation four, but he got this instead two bags of rocks.

Igor Baksht bought a PlayStation 4 bundle at the Walmart in Stapleton last Friday. He said an employee who got it out of the locked cabinet told him the PlayStation was previously returned. He opened the box before wrapping the gift for his 13-year-old niece.

“Just to make sure everything was inside, that all the contents were inside, all the games were inside,” said Baksht. “When I opened it, I said, ‘Oh my God.’

He found two bags of rocks wrapped up like the cop drama version of rectangular kilos of drugs.

“I couldn’t go back because they already were closed,” said Baksht.

He said he went to a 24-hour Walmart and was told he would have to go back to the store where he made the purchase.

On Saturday, he said he went back first thing in the morning.

“He said they cannot do anything about it because they don’t have proof, how it came in, nothing,” said Baksht.

7NEWS reports they were skeptical of his story, but in previous years other customers have been duped by the same scam. In 2012, an Alabama boy opened his Nintendo 3DS and found a box of rocks. In the last couple of years, multiple people found notebooks inside their newly opened iPad boxes.

He said he called the store multiple times and even called the corporate office.

“I never stole anything in my life. The most criminal thing that I’ve did, I got a driving ticket,” said Baksht.

On Christmas Eve afternoon, the store manager called Baksht and told him to bring the box back to the store.

“If they give me a PlayStation, I’ll take a PlayStation if they give me the same bundle that I paid for. If they give me another console plus two games, I’ll take that, but if they don’t have it, I’ll take the money back and buy it from somebody else,” said Baksht.

He said when he bought the PlayStation last week, the employee who took it out for him also said the box was a bit heavy.

“I’ve never bought one before, so I don’t know how much it has to weigh,” said Baksht.

On Christmas Eve night, the store manager returned the game console and gave him his money back.
