Canadian authorities are investigating a Playstation 2 web scam. Police began investigating the company that runs ps2storecanada.com and ps2storeusa.com after hundreds of costumers in both the United States and Canada complained of paying for but not receiving Playstation 2 consoles. "If I was a fraud, would I be trying to clear my name? I'd be long gone," said Scott Byers, operator of the sites, in an interview with Cnet. Sony, for its part, says that the websites are not authorized Playstation 2 vendors. The U.S. and Canadian branches of the Better Business Bureau have both issued warning about websites falsely advertising PS2 availability.
