    Hello!
    I'm only 15 and I don't have PayPal or a credit card. I've been a Pinside apprentice for over a year and really want to become verified. If anyone wants to vouch for me I'll be eternally greatful and I'll build a shrine in your honor!
    Thank you so much!
    Corey

    Welcome! I was 15 once also.

    I don't know how/where to vouch but I used a coin to get you a ❤.

    They were out of 1-ups...

    I’ll vouch for you Mario. I’ve known Super Mario for a while now. Met him back when Nintendo came out. This poor guy has been through a lot, but no matter what challenges life through at this guy, he always perceived.

    What part of the world are you located in? I may be able to put you in touch with a local event organizer so someone local to you can get to know you and verify you.

    well there is plenty of pinball in chicago. I'm sure someone can verify him in real life.

    Send a message to Stern and see if they are doing factory tours right now. While you're there mention that you're trying to get verified on Pinside. https://sternpinball.com/support/contact-us/

    I would but I’m pretty sure they’re not doing factory tours for now. I contacted them to ask. Is there any other way I can prove I’m a legit account?

    Leo, you're asking for someone to verify you when you have 20 post, you have your location as unknown and joined a month and a half ago. With all the scams going on, see below post, people on here are going to be reluctant to verify you. As others have mentioned, it would be best to get someone local that you can build a rapport with and then they will verify you. Chicago has a big pinball following so it wont be hard!

    Not to mention he has "sclam" in his username. Obvious sclammer, IMO.

    my last name is Sclamberg. I don’t think any person capable of scamming is dumb enough to have a giveaway in their username lol

    You’re totally right! My record doesn’t really prove me not a scammer quite yet. Thanks for all the help! You can also check out my Instagram to see I’m a real person. My Instagram is leosclam

    Seems like any scammer or legit pinball hobbyist can spare $5 anyhow. Not exactly a cheap hobby.

    That’s true. If any scammer really wanted to be verified they could just pay the $5. I’m 15 though and my parents would be annoyed if I spent $5 to be verified on pinside (they’re not exactly pinball enthusiasts)

    I can vouch for you. Just find "have someone vouch for you" on the verification page. And put in Corey_Fleming so I can verify you
