FNN reports that another woman had purchased the PS5 from the suspect for around 65,000 yen ($596) earlier this year. The PS5 arrived cash on delivery, but in the box there was only a pair of two-liter bottles filled with water. The woman could not get in touch with the suspect and then contacted the police.
“I shipped the packaged, but I don’t remember what was in it,” the suspect said, denying the alleged fraud charges.
The police are currently investigating the matter further.
