Man falls for 'trainers worn by Mo Farah' scam

Man falls for ‘trainers worn by Mo Farah’ scam

A man who paid over £3,400 ($4,300) for a pair of ‘pre-worn’ trainers still runs slower than his six-year old son.

Nicholas O Bromovitch, 32 of Greater Manchester saw the trainers on eBay and snapped up the bargain at its BIN (Buy It Now) price.

However, he received a pair of clapped-out sneakers which were two sizes too large, and with the soles coming away.

The listing claimed they had been worn by Mo Farah during some of his greatest successes.

When Mr Bromovitch complained, the seller replied that the trainers had been worn by his cousin, Mohamed Farah. His successes while wearing them included getting a job in McDonalds, and pulling Matilda Gormley in a local nightclub.

The seller added that his cousin had also successfully run away from three gang members who were chasing him for ‘money owed’.

Mr Bromovitch said: “I thought good for Mo, good for me. Not so.

“When I wear these even six-year old son runs faster. These rubbish trainers.

“If I knew what these shoes like, I would have run a mile. Ha! Joke, I think.

“Now I must make more money at stinking laundry and buy better pair.”

The seller admitted he had meant to list the trainers at £0.34 but the cat jumped on his keyboard while he was entering the price.

When eBay tried to contact the seller he had emptied his PayPal account and done a runner.
