A TikToker who posts videos on money making hacks has been slammed for selling Primark Barbie sliders online for profit. The scheme hasn't gone down too well with some viewers and some have been so shocked by the video that they've called it 'pure greed'.
Watch the video here:
In the video, TikTok user Sami Ultahir, explains how he spotted a way to earn some quick cash. Using the app Loot Notify - that alerts its users to new and best selling stock - Sami came across pink Barbie sliders in Primark.
As we know, the film's popularity has caused everything pink and doll-themed to sell out in stores all over.
Speaking in a voiceover, he said: "Come and make money off slippers we found in Primark. Let's go!
"Primark dropped a whole collection based around the new Barbie movie, and thanks to Loot notify, we knew the sliders were going to perform the best and sales were flying out on eBay. So you already know we had to clear all the stock, buying them for £9 each and selling them for £20."
Sami spoke over a video clip of the cashiers at Primark packing pink sliders into bulging shopping bags. He then continues and shares screenshots of the pink slip on footwear retailing for double the price that Primark is selling them for. He then describes the 'flip' as 'a no brainer' before reminding viewers to message him for more 'easy money' schemes like this.
The 20-year-old TikTok star labelled the video, "So many opportunities to make money off the release of the barbie film!"
Yet Sami's video wasn't greeted with applause or praise for spotting the get rich quick items.
Instead, comments on the TikTok video called out Sami's money making hack as 'pure greed' as one viewer wrote: "This shouldn't be allowed...sales should be limited... pure greed."
Another added: "This is like robbing the poor when you make a profit."
With a third simply branding Sami's efforts as a 'rip off'.
Sami doesn't appear to have responded to any of the comments shaming his money making video, but in his TikTok bio he writes: "IF I DON’T DO IT THEN SOMEONE GON DO IT".
The Primark video joins other money making and profit hacks on his page, including videos selling Waitrose soy sauce for double the price on Amazon as well as using a discount on fake tan to snap up bottles of Bondi Sands when they were reduced from £18.99 to £4.75.
