PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! An 18-year-old scalper who is making thousands off PS5s, Pokemon cards and designer clothing has spoken out. Jake, 18, spoke to the BBC over raking in four-figure sums each and every single month through the controversial method of 'scalping'. The controversial practice involves buying tech goods, tickets, designer items and other goods online using bots, which can scan the internet quicker than a human. On his earnings, Jake told Newsbeat: "I honestly don't keep track. Maybe £10,000 since November. "At the start when stock was limited, you could easily sell a PS5 for £800." He revealed he has the Sony console lying around his home, alongside Pokemon rarities and widely sought after designer clothes. Another, 17-year-old Sam, told the BBC: "I'm an entrepreneur of sorts. "The reality is we buy stock, we own it, we can set the price.

"I believe it to be an unfair and unjust practice that well-funded groups/individuals can deplete the stock of a single item," the petition reads. "And make it unaffordable/unavailable to the average consumer. "I believe the law around this practice needs to be reviewed and measure to prevent it need to be introduced."
