While supermarkets collect items infiltrate Australian markets for a second year in a row, frustrated consumers are warning that some sellers are trying to fool buyers and redeem the fun.

& # 39; Rare & # 39; items from Woolworths 2019 Lion King ooshies promotion appeared on eBay for exorbitant prices.

A buyer from Perth went to social media to shame a seller in his area on Facebook Marketplace for an attempt to mislead potential customers.

The seller, a man named Chris, originally advertised a Woolworths Simba Ooshie for $ 15, but won the prize up to $ 500 when contacted to arrange a pick-up time.

When the buyer did not refuse the request so politely, Chris seemed to think that his price increase was completely acceptable.

& # 39; Did you think you had won the jackpot? & # 39 ;, he asked.

While the $ 500 price tag may seem steep to some, other shoppers who encountered rare ooshies in stores believe they are on a small fortune.
