Isn’t this how it goes? A big retailer tries to do something nice — or really, just nab customers from its competitors — and scammers take advantage.

The price match offer also covered the Sony PlayStation 4, the gaming console with a hefty $400 price tag. We’re guessing you can figure out what happened next. (Video via Sony)
