9-Year-Old Finds Christmas PS4 Replaced by a Block of Wood

9-year-old Scott Lundy was left deft devastated when, upon opening the box for the PlayStation 4 he received for Christmas, found that instead of the console there was a similarly sized block of wood, with a crude message written on it.

“He got a PS4 and he says ‘this is the best present ever this is the best Christmas ever,'” Brian Lundy, the boy’s father, told Boston’s Fox 25 News. After bellowing, “Can we set this up now?”, Lundy’s son opened the box to find his PS4 absent, replaced the wooden slab. The thief responsible for the cruel switcheroo, to add insult to injury, wrote the message, “From c*** and balls with love,” on the plank.

“He’s crying and he’s upset and he’s in the playroom by himself and he just wants to be alone so at that point. I was crushed,” said Kristin Lundy, Scott’s step-mother, added.

Thankfully, the Target store that Scott’s parents bought the PS4 from were happy to exchange the fraudulent contents of the box for a real console.

“They not only gave us a new game system but they also gave us a $100 gift card as well as an additional game that the original game that was supposed to be in the box. Couldn’t have been any kinder,” Kristin said.

“We never like to disappoint our guests and are thankful for our store team’s quick response to make things right,” Lee Henderson of Target Communication added.

Swapping out PlayStation 4 consoles for low-value items has become a sad Christmas tradition, with last year’s victims finding bibles and rocks in their PS4 boxes.
