    I ask Instagram to shut down instagram.com/Pinball_machines44

    It appears they did nothing. I even provided screen shots of how they were trying to scam me. I played along to to gather evidence.

    Unfortunately, it doesn't seem like social media companies are inclined to do much. All we can do is try to keep track of these profiles, and continue reporting them.

    Pinball_12 on Instagram is mass following people with pin related content. Over 2,300 followers. I interacted a bit with them since they claim to have a shop in Michigan. Was obvious that it’s a scam. No physical location, no website. Eager to take payment. Hilarity ensued. Apparently they had both the games I was looking for: “ I’m really looking for a JJP (Junior Jersey Princess) Pilots of the California. Do you have?” and “Medieval Madness 2, Medieval Boogaloo”
    If you’re wondering, JJP Pilots was $4k but MM2, EB was $14k.
    Pics of conversation for a laugh

    It's interesting that the latter account posted a pinball meme in their feed. I think that's the first time I've seen them attempt that.

    Here's another one, pinballmachinesandparts.com

    I'll add these data points hopefully they come up in a google search.

    Any site using the email Companysites1[at]gmail.com is a scam.

    Any site using this testimonial appears to be a scam too

    "Very Happy Corvette Owner!! I was extremely please with the prompt delivery of my Corvette Pinball machine. The packaging for shipment was perfect to keep from damaging the machine as it went down two sets of stairs. The Pinball Machine looked just like new and worked perfectly! the follow up support by Brooke was great. Thank you from another satisfied customer!!"

    Thanks, already in the list

    They've used quite a list of various email addresses. They basically treat them as throwaway accounts.

    Sorry didn't notice. Consider that +1 for the SEO, hopefully more odds someone sees this post if they search for that company.
