Two men were arrested for obtaining money by false pretense after they sold a DVD player to a buyer instead of a PlayStation 4 game console.
On Monday 21st June 2021, two men from El Socorro, San Juan, aged 18 and 20 posted a PlayStation 4 game console for sale on Facebook, then made arrangements to meet with an interested buyer.
The two men met with the interested buyer around 4 pm, at the Western carpark of Trincity Mall, where they completed the
transaction for $2000. The buyer proceeded to check the contents of the PS4 box and discovered that the box contained a black
