Ikuko Tokuoka, a 41-year-old unemployed woman in Shiga, Japan, has been arrested for fraud after allegedly sending a customer two bottles of water instead of a PlayStation 5.

FNN reports that another woman had purchased the PS5 from the suspect for around 65,000 yen ($764) earlier this year. The PS5 arrived cash on delivery, but in the box, there was only a pair of two-litre bottles filled with water. The woman could not get in touch with the suspect and then contacted the police.

“I shipped the package, but I don’t remember what was in it,” the suspect said, denying the alleged fraud charges.

The police are currently investigating the matter further.
