    I am still waiting for him to rectify my issue as well. I still have an unreplaced board from last year that was DOA. I have chalked it up to a loss at this point

    Quoted from Butch2099:

    Wow! Over a year? I hope you get some resolution! International makes it that much harder.. Too late to do a chargeback?

    We ordered a lot as we sell spare parts in Sweden, no possibility to do a chargeback. We didnt want to since we were promised to get our order. We recieved half of it, then complete silence...(a lil over a year now) hopefully he responds here doubt it though.

    Else I hope someone take action in the states.

    #453 1 year ago

    Sounds like a lot of people interested in the product. Too bad it's being handled so badly..

    Goodnight and farewell, board shop is now dead.
    I remember when the shop opened and was hopeful for them, and the community who could use the boards.
    Victor Dumbass pinball makes great boards and has super communication, I have bought from him and could not be happier.

    That doesn’t help those not on Pinside if he’s still selling elsewhere though.

    #456 1 year ago

    I wonder how much extra business Victor is getting right about now?

    #457 1 year ago

    Still hard at work...

    If anyone looks at his reviews on FB he shouldn’t get much business there either. Down to direct sales on the site or at shows? Should be banned from future shows honestly. Burned enough people

    #459 1 year ago

    I wonder how he will respond to people demanding refunds on his new advertisement posts. Who wants to try?

    I'm sure the usual... It's going out next week and string them along

    #461 1 year ago

    I think the string them along, is to get outside the window of a charge back. He is selling the concept of a working board to those who are desperate for one to get their pinball working.

    #462 1 year ago

    Wow this dude is the Manny of boards!

    #463 1 year ago

    Or should I say smith

    Exactly! I liked the idea of reproduction boards, I just like the idea of not getting ripped off better..

    Still no response even on his own thread!

    For those interested, he now has every color of wire that Bally made posted on FB. Get your promise of wire and a free shipping label, before its too late. Maybe it is for personal consumption, and he is also rebuilding pinball in his basement too. This is like a bad soap opera on daytime TV. Will Butch get his boards? Will he get his money back from the credit card company? Will Charlie ever communicate to complaining consumers? Will some evil doer visit Charlie and demand satisfaction? Will Charlie dare to show up to a pinball show and face harsh criticism? How about reinventing himself with a new company name, but not changing his customer service? Inquiring minds want to see the next episode of this drama.

    Will he be arrested for theft.

    He has all 810 color striping variations available?

    #470 1 year ago

    Does it look like 810 color striping variations?>?

    I don't want boards I can't trust, I'm refusing anything I get.

    Got my local bank manager involved to push it along. I've made it clear if I don't win after he's admitted to not sending me anything I will pull every dime out of every account I have there.

    Communication was actually good, all lies, but timely.

    I remember somebody posted they were looking for him at Texas and he was already gone. Probably figured he had mine & my buddy's money to run while he can.

    I think he (basement) lifted that picture from HEP

    I believe this thread should be titled “ Grand CLOSING of the Pinball Basement - Check it out”

    At least 143; maybe 160 or so.

    #475 1 year ago

    Well that's a scam in and of itself. Lol.

    If anybody needs wire, lemme know! I ship fast!

    Quoted from ForceFlow:

    Moderation comment:
    Normally, when there's a problem, we prefer to leave accounts active so that the lines of communication are kept open. That hopefully gives people a chance to to possibly resolve any issues.
    Unfortunately, this particular member's behavior has made it clear that he rarely communicates when there is a problem, and the posts in this thread demonstrate he has little interest in resolving them to a customer's satisfaction.
    While it is unfortunate that things have come to this, it's clear that this individual has made little effort to make improvements, and instead has resulted in a long line of unhappy customers with similar stories.
    The moderation team does not support this behavior. Therefore, in the best interests of the community, the moderation team has opted to close this member's business and personal accounts on Pinside.
    For anyone who currently has an unresolved issue with an order, all we can say is that since most of these orders were placed outside of Pinside, we have no control over those. The best option might be to follow a similar path that the OP of this thread did to at least get his money back.

    He is selling a bunch of populated playfields on facebook. I was going to buy them but not sure I would ever get them after reading this thread.

    Cash on glass is the only way to deal with actually getting anything definitely.

    Trying to get him to ship something was impossible.

    You could try to arrange a pick-up, but there's no telling if he would ever commit to it.

    I've seen those too and didn't make the connection. Thanks for pointing that out. I'd stay away or only set up a deal to pick up.
