    After reading this entire thread, I don't want to deal with either of the parties. Ever.

    #202 54 days ago
    Quoted from drsfmd:

    Wow. So now it’s Pinside’s fault? You’ll blame anyone other than yourself.

    Here we go again... no but pinside enables this guy in a way. No other Hobbyist website would let the same guy have 4 accounts. Yet alone after deals gone bad, regardless of his corrective action. 90% of my trades have been from members here 99% great people. Once again I have taken part of the blame. But the main part of this thread was to warn unsuspected people.

    Sounds like some need a lesson in ethics and character building, and judging by some of the rebuttals you guys have no problem with not disclosing things as it’s the “buyers responsibility”

    Hockeymutt. Post the game running and get that guy's board that offered it. That will teach em all.

    Quoted from hockeymutt:

    But hey as long as he pays his fees all is ok on pinside. Seems like the theme is they get payed and turn the other way. Even tho they host a way for this guy to broker tax free deals for a business. He should also have to listed as a business here and held to the same standards and yearly fee. Hell just keep being allowed to circumvent the system till another person like myself gets for a lack of. Better word “robbed” This time isnt my first hobby were trading and buying type of stuff. ( game used pro hockey equipment, car parts countless car parts, and not once have i had to change my username. The other crazy thing is on Facebook groups and these types of sites usually after the second time he burns ( most the time the first) someone, a swift boot is given. And ip is recorded

    Moderator feedback thread would probably be a good place to ask: https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/forum/moderator-feedback

    Might mention the multiple accounts while you’re communicating with them.

    It gets better... who the f... soldered these caps. This is on the mother board ( not driver board) judging by this solder job this board never worked either.

    #209 54 days ago

    Hmm, maybe they never wiped the flux off the board when they removed the old caps?

    Quoted from DakotaMike:

    That’s elementary board repair 101.
    Also the mother board looks like it took a dip as well

    Yes.. I want to see this game running. Vindication is best!

    You’ve sold many many games. Have you paid tax on them? No.

    By your own words, you’re the “fraudster”

    #225 54 days ago

    So he LOST money on all of these past sales of his?:

    WCS 3000
    CV 7200
    DE JP 3600
    LAH 3500

    I could go on but i am at work and i SHOULD be doing some.

    You have no idea what he paid for them. I know a number of collectors who lose money on almost every game they own. I don't get it, but they happily do it.

    Quoted from dung:

    So you honestly think he LOST money on selling a LAH at 3500 and a JP at 3600?

    C'mon man. Just stop.

    I don't know if Blackbeard needs to get laid or not but I do know he needs a Grand Lizard Good luck in the search Blackbeard. At least I know he has good taste in pins because GL is an amazing game!!

    Quoted from Blackbeard:

    C'mon man. Just stop.

    I think if you are going to play this game , you need to look at total sales over a year for tax purposes and not just one single game. So maybe someone made 100 bucks on one game and lost 200 on another. That is a net loss of 100 with no tax implications for the seller. You have no idea what he paid so you have no idea what the net is over a year. Experience says that the only games that show "profit" are B/W games held for a while for most of the collectors. Those games aside I bet. I am mostly negative on sales

    You're missing the point.

    Lou came on here and bashed baller for NOT paying taxes on his sales. Clearly he has some old beef w the baller.

    I chimed in that it's pretty hypocritical of Lou to say he should pay taxes when in fact, Lou ALSO sells games. Lou then defends it, saying he has no taxable gains, which i then called bullshit on.

    Love pinside.

    By beef do you mean simply being aware of the thread where the guy sells games as a business but takes paypal Friends&family as payment?

    Last thing i wanna do with my time is chit-chat with some random dude from the internet. I'd rather waste away my workday posting babble here.

    And i'll always call BULLSHIT that you lost or broke even on all your sales. You're full of shit bro. Period.

    #245 54 days ago

    It may have made best of pinside but still doesnt have the fun and drama that tote gate had or the ultimate turn around that baywatch had....
    Just saying.
    Just a bunch of bashing , defending and side battles.
    He said .she said.
    Just make the game run or reverse trade.

    Quoted from adborto:

    This thread reminds me of 2020......
    Key takeaways:
    1) Distributors are easier to deal with
    2) Only buy from friends or someone that you trust
    3) Stranger danger
    4) Paypal is not good
    5) When is JAWS coming out?
    6) We need a new topic category that is labeled as IGRO - I Got Ripped Off.
    7) I have empathy for the OP. I have been ripped off before.
    8) Never spend what you can't loose

    yt

    Number 8 is the most important. Btw. Sorry for your troubles hockeymutt. Its a sucky situation.

    #249 53 days ago

    I hope it all works out ok. With that said, this is the only buyer that I went to buy something and never came back home with it. That’s fine but I learned to get what you may overpay for.

    And why do so many have multiple screen names and get to stay?
