STATUE OF GREATNESS scam

6 replies 377 views Edited Dec 19, 2012
The "Statue of Greatness" looks really cool based off the 3D pic when shopping, and the description says it's...."massive in both ego and SIZE" . Huh? Ok, this statue is smaller than most of the Greek statues! Your avi is almost as tall. Why say in the description that it's massive if indeed it's small? And for $5.99 !!!!! What!!!! Well, I will say this, it's not as bad as the Platinum Picture Frame $4.99, in which you can't even upload pictures to it, and it's so small you can hardly see it, more like a sparkle active item on the wall. Gosh dang it Sony. I understand their object in making money, but to COMPLETELY mislead customers this way is just not right. I like the statue, but obviously the price doesn't fit, maybe .99 would be better.

Furniture needs a preview with a avatar next to it so users can see the size. After 4 years they really need to improve that feature.

This statue is very old and probably was the largest (or one of them) items for sale back then. Yes it is still a scam in my eyes also. But then, some people love their 'bling'ed out crap and their gold whatevers so this caters to that clientelle. you fell hook line and sinker, but dont worry you are in good company. I know a few who bought into that statue. The way I looked at it back in the day was always 'I could buy a personal space for that much'...

Misleading description bug me much more than prices inflation.

I agree, I did fall for it, only my second time. But, I am mad at myself, and at the same time, I kinda like the statue anyways. But yes, I could've bought a nice space for that price.

If you think for even a moment that it's not done on purpose, you're out of your gourd. Any purchase, even a remorseful one, is still a purchase. Sure, sometimes Sony gives refunds. But most won't bother jumping through the hoops to do so. So ultimately, underhandedness = profit.
