Someone sent me this, the site looks bogus and has spelling errors.. but it advertises a Batman 66 pinball by Stern for $89. Too good to be true i'm sure, but I used a credit card for the 0 liability factor. I've been getting messages from the shipping service that its about ready to be thrown on a boat. They describe the size and weight of a real pin, and a 14 day refund policy. So If I dont get a real pin, i could easily charge the money back from my card. But the $89 wouldnt even cover the shipping!

What am I really going to have show up on my doorstep though?

If it's not a complete scam where you get nothing, maybe some sort of minature, perhaps.

If it actually turns on and does something, I wouldnt mind that

A lot of the other deals they offer are very compelling as well. Oh wait, it's just a web page with this one item.

A cabinet full of drugs/guns and the DEA/ATF waiting in the bushes for you to accept the shipment?

What you think happens - you take a zero risk purchase on a sketchy site that 99.9999999% chance won’t deliver.

What will happen - you just sent your shipping address to a scammer and told them “I collect valuable items”.

Best case, you get a BM66 for 89$.

Worst case, you get identity fraud.

They do have your name/address, credit card/bank info.

A lot of credit cards are being used by..
you guessed it(not the card holder) best to keep an eye on your transactions.

They already have all that info. Equifax and Chase lost all of that info in data breaches, all three of my reports are locked/frozen

On a website called drunks pennant, how can you lose?

#11 3 years ago

No wonder mine isn't selling for $6300. They are practically giving them away in China.

Going to be funny when you get a Thunderbirds and still take a hit on resale.

So If I dont get a real pin...

Priceless.

Enjoy your fake sunglasses!

Happened to a buddy who ordered ridiculously cheap highly sought-after "vintage headphones"...

You’d think they would put a little more effort in this scam. The only item listed for sale on the website is an $89 BM66

They are just testing the "pinside waters". Someone must have told them that there are a lot of fools and their money here.

#18 3 years ago

This reminds me.
Didn’t some guy drop 15k for a supreme pinball machine..
And in return, got a cardboard picture of one.

#19 3 years ago

It's probably full of fentanyl that will be removed before delivery

#20 3 years ago

Buy as many of them as you can. What could go wrong?

Exactly. With as many data breaches as there have been, I’d be surprised if someone doesn’t have all of my info by now.

#22 3 years ago

I wouldn't pay a penny over $85.00.

#23 3 years ago

Can I get better pics of the playfield? Lol

#24 3 years ago

I'm rooting for you to get an actual batman 66 full size pinball. Maybe something got lost in translation and what should have been 8900 got put in as 89 bucks. Looking forward to checking back with you standing in front of a bm66 with a big ass grin on your face...good luck.

For $89 you get the actual game but have to use the original code it launched with

So, he's going to get an order of those colored nuts we've heard so much about.

#27 3 years ago

Youre not getting shit...

#28 3 years ago

Good luck!

#29 3 years ago

I'm just impressed that he didn't share a pic of the Amex Black he used with all the personal info and numbers n' stuff semi-transparently greyed out.

#30 3 years ago

Free shipping too. You’d be crazy not to!

#31 3 years ago

$118 Canadian, tax included. I want one, but just can’t pull the trigger for some reason

Seems legit

#33 3 years ago

I think this there’s an error in this quote from the website:

“Our Service and Commitments

They say money can’t buy happiness but at Drunkspennant every penny you spend gives you a lot of happiness!”

I think the last “you” is supposed to be “us”

#34 3 years ago

If the box arrives damaged, be sure and don't sign for it. I mean, for $89, you don't want to risk the cab being damaged from a forklift.

Also, check for clearcoat pooling around the sling posts. Raise hell if it looks bad.

You're welcome.

#35 3 years ago

$120 by Christmas!!

Probably an STD. Wouldn’t trust it.

The real question here is how long until you need to cancel that credit card and order one with a new number.

Using a credit card is the most secure method to buy something online, you are not responsible for any fraudulent charges whereas on a debit you do have a $50 liability.

Update this morning, the mysterious "thing" is on a flight getting ready to depart Chiiina. Hahaha

I volunteered to be the Guinea Pig for you guys. I'm really not expecting much here, I was more curious than anything. Amazon once mis-priced some stuff online and sold some fairly expensive items way below what they shouldve been priced. But considering this is for a Stern pinball coming from China, the odds are extremely low I'm going to get anything worth even $50..

Its like a real-life loot box from EA

#42 3 years ago

I love your moxie. MAYBE they messed up a decimal place, and are charging you $8,900 for a BM66? Thats the only way I see you actually getting a real pin.

Regardless, this is hilarious.

#43 3 years ago

After the deal, take a picture from you with a real BM66 pin and mail them.
say that you got the pin and that you're happy with it.

Or post a picture of a BM66 on pinside and watch everyone crash the site with orders.

Not read the entire thread as I’m working but just wanted to add Incase it’s not been said but it sounds like a phishing scam to me, you have basically allowed them to do an authorised charge of your card, giving them your name, address, credit card and bank details.

And given them a good idea your a buyer or high end goods, these scams are usually nationwide setups so details captured for someone on one end of the country are sent to those involved in those areas and vice versa.

Here is some info on the domain name...

What could go wrong?

Can’t lie, I’m curious as hell to see what you get. Might be an awesome miniature. Or a super expensive brochure.

They are going to send him something worthless in the mail, while using his credit card and personal info to rack up fraudulent charges on his credit card.
