Pinside doesn't miss a beat - I love it! Not even 20 min and right after New year's yet you guys are all over this. Great job.

There is a special place in hell for people like this who actually lie about surgery for their daughter. Wow.

A single tear for wife. Place in hell using daughter to sell a machine. And for you buddy boy, Pm sent. How can i wire you money now?
This is why new users should not be able to sell pins.

The pics are blurry. No high res pics, he must be hiding something. Perhaps the playfield is planked?

I told him I'd come pick it up ASAP and he's insisting on shipping it to me as long as I send him the money.

But I'm IN BOSTON RIGHT NOW and I can come get it RIGHT NOW. Nope, still wants to ship because it's "safer" that way.....

Seems legit!

#15 1 year ago

New sellers. Very dangerous. You go first.

#16 1 year ago

I’m in Boston I’ll pick it up with cash lol..
Not holding my breathe

#17 1 year ago

I did the same thing. Asking if I could come pick it up today and he's in Dallas on work and he only comes home on the weekend. I ask him then if we could meet this weekend and I could pay him and he says he lives works all the time in Dallas and doesn't know when he's going to be able to come home. MODS please remove

Typical story. I've been told similar stories from "good deal" pins too. They have all this drama in their life and need to sell a pin at giveaway prices. I bend over backwards to accommodate their schedule/situation, but for some reason the only thing they can seem to do is accept my money and "ship" the pin to me.

This is posted on Mr. Pinball as well.

Here is his number he sent. 617 586-4307 Was very brief on the phone and couldn't answer any questions about the game. For sure a scam.

#21 1 year ago

He sent me his account info trying to get me to wire him money because there is so much interest in the game. He wants to hold it for me. What a swell fella....

#22 1 year ago

i am a surgeon and will do operation for this pin.

#23 1 year ago

It shows that this brand new scam account is verified???!!!

You will find that the large tile floor in the photos is from the same ebay ad. There was a LOTR that popped up on Seattle Craigslist with the same floor. Same scam. It will turn out that the 'seller' will send you a fake ebay listing link that wants you to go to the local drugstore and purchase several ebay gift cards. Then you call a phone number and give them the gift card info. Bye Bye $$$.

It appears that these scammers (in this case from Nigeria) are going to greater lengths each and every day. They now also have verified Paypal accounts (as in: Paypal verified their bank accounts and it all checked out). Most likely they are using hacked Paypal accounts.

I was not expecting this when we created this (free) verification method but logically, I will be removing the free PayPal verification method (at least for now).

Please always be careful when dealing pins online. Even when an account shows as verified, it could very well have been hacked. Do your due diligence and read Vids "how not to get ripped off in pinball" guide!

If someone asks you to verify their accounts, only do so if you know them personally! Thanks to everyone who PMs me when they see a fishy ad.

Thanks for your fast response!

I was able to purchase this pin but I have to go to someone else's house to play it!

Yeah something is going on lately - I sell on Ebay and have for well over a decade, and I saw more fraudulent transactions during this last 4th quarter than I've ever seen by far. On each one the Ebay buyers account was hacked, and chances are they also got the buyers Paypal account info as well (probably most use the same passwords for both). I personally think there was some sort of massive Ebay hack that we haven't heard about yet. It was unreal how many fraudulent purchases we had. Luckily everything is covered under Seller Protection, so on our end we were fine, but something really strange was going on, that's for sure.
