Man Buys PlayStation 4, Gets Bags of Rocks Instead

A man from Denver, Colorado who bought a PlayStation 4 from his local Walmart was shocked to find upon opening the box that the console was missing, its place taken by two taped-up bags of rocks.
Igor Baksht bought the PlayStation 4 as a present for his niece and, despite the store clerk informing him that the console he was buying was a returned item, he did not check its contents until he was home. Baksht said that, before he wrapped the present, he opened the box, “Just to make sure everything was inside, that all the contents were inside, all the games were inside. When I opened it, I said, ‘Oh my God.” He says the clerk who served him commented about the weight of the box.
When Baksht returned to Walmart with the console box, he was initially told that there was nothing that could be done, and that they could not give him a refund. Only after pursuing the matter did the store manager call Baksht to offer him his money back.
