    Does anyone know what's going on with Mad Amusements lately ,I am getting no emails back too me or phone calls ether ?

    #2 6 years ago

    Find the big monster thread on them...you're international, so you may be in for a challenge!

    #3 6 years ago

    Oh lord, not another one. Other thread summary...
    U.S. Not many problems
    Other - DO NOT ORDER.
    Good luck.

    #4 6 years ago

    I have ordered lots of things though them for years but just this last order no email back or phone calls ?

    #5 6 years ago

    Just got an order from Mike yesterday.

    #6 6 years ago

    Nooooooooooooooooooooooooo....

    #7 6 years ago

    Oh, geez. Can we just all agree not to discuss Mad Amusements. "At Your Own Risk" comes to mind based on prior threads.

    He's not your buddy, guy.

    #10 6 years ago

    The warning is on the sign above the door!

    #11 6 years ago

    If Mike makes these parts available to non-US buyers then what right does he have to radio silence? If you stink someone is going to smell it and complain.

    #12 6 years ago

    Just not right at all

    #13 6 years ago

    Check, has he cancelled your account and blocked your IP address.

    No my order is still there it just says not shipped need more too ship but hasn't back too me as of yet don't know why .its been two weeks when I order it

    #15 6 years ago

    Don't let it exceed the timeframe for making a claim to get your money back whether it's PayPal or a credit card.... And based on other peoples' prior issues, I would only ever use a form of payment where I can be sure to get my money back from this guy.

    #16 6 years ago

    Yes I went though PayPal and you have 45 days right ?

    #17 6 years ago

    Yes you have 45 days to file a claim for a transaction outside of Ebay.

    Ok thanks

    #19 6 years ago

    Good luck

    #20 6 years ago

    I'm in the U.S. and he hasn't responded to my email and phone call I left for him 1 month ago. I quit buying there regardless of his lower prices.

    #21 6 years ago

    No more parts for U. NEXT..................

    #22 6 years ago

    I bought a few parts from him a month ago. No problems.

    #23 6 years ago

    Every order I have ever placed with Mad has been on my doorstep in 48 hours. Never had a problem.

    That's because you live in New York and can get your hands on him....

    #25 6 years ago

    He packs my orders and puts the shipping labels on within hours of placement. Exceptional customer service from my experience. I am in the states though!

    #26 6 years ago

    My daughter likes the candy they send...

    #27 6 years ago
    Quoted from westofrome:

    I wouldn't eat any candy from China, they have poisoned our dogs and us with tainted food and drywall.
    Parts go into the game, candy goes in the trash.

    #28 6 years ago
    Quoted from westofrome:

    I'm with Tracelifter on this one.

    I would not give that candy to my daughter (unless you are trying to sterilize her).

    RDs tip of the day ... Don't eat drywall.

    Not very tasty. And very dry.

    You don't have to eat it, it eats you and all of your plumbing.

    Everything is ok Mike emailed me today and we worked everything out ,he's got too many orders on he's hands

    #32 6 years ago

    Good to hear, just put in an order on Tuesday.

    #33 6 years ago

    I live about 30 mins from where Mike is located. I always have had my parts the next day. He has been great to deal with in the experiences I have had with him.

    #34 6 years ago
    Quoted from Williampinball:

    sure he does...so swamped with orders he can't keep up keep us posted how long your order takes op and after reading this thread i know exactly who i will never buy anything from ever, thanks for the heads up!

    #35 6 years ago

    I have got my parts from Mike over the years and always been great and fast shipping ,great parts also ,I think this was all about the over size parts couldn't be ship together that's all

    #36 6 years ago

    Or an email which would have taken a few seconds and explained so much

    #37 6 years ago
    Quoted from Jokercyclone:

    That's right that's all it takes

    #38 6 years ago

    Sorry for hijack but since this is an active thread regarding retailers I thought I would ask if any knows what's going on with BAA? Seems like every part I look for they're out of stock. Has anyone else experienced the same? Maybe its just me...

    #39 6 years ago

    I have the damndest time getting his website to come up, some days it does, other days nothing? can't figure it out!

    I noticed that too. BAA is still my favorite place though and I always try them first.

    Well, I know they've had my battery holders and anyPin NVRAM Battery Eliminators in hand for two months now, yet they've not made it to the site.

    Rick's certainly very busy with all he's got going on, maybe it's time to hire someone to update the site?

    I was thinking the same thing Borygard. If he's so busy, why doesn't he just hire someone for help? Communication is #1. Takes a minute or two to send out an email. Two weeks with no email isn't acceptable. I don't mind waiting if i get an explanation to why there's a hold on my package.

    Thanks for letting me know to stay away from Mad Amusements. I'm not sure how companies like that survive.

    Quoted from rx3:

    Really? I find their site outdated, not easy to navigate and the search feature not so hot. Items listed as in stock not in stock after ordering. Add to that, BAA has some items that PPS doesn't and vise versa.

    The model for a stream lined parts vendor is Marco by far. They can be a little more at times but I would rather buy everything from one spot than have to order from three sites. Search feature is outstanding and I love the related parts suggestions when you select something.

    Marco first for me with pinballlife a close second. Great site, better prices than Marco on most items but not as much in product offering. BAA/PPS is down there after little shop of games and PDI that use PayPal redirects but have straight forward sites with updated product inventory.

    #44 6 years ago

    I'm not sure how companies like that survive.

    By screwing over international customers, using local law loopholes to avoid international police, and magically produce the product when the 2% of people that get screwed actually persue it.

    Check the planetary pinball site instead, a lot of it is on that site. prices are usually slightly different though.

    That is not just any candy my friend,that good sir is a Jelly Belly variety pack that if not opened correctly,can enhance your experience with a rogue bean in your seat cushion years from now!

    Jelly Bellys are sent with BAA orders, Mad sends the Chinese made stuff.

    Any advice on how to get your money back?

    #49 6 years ago

    Contact international authorities. He will either refund you or magically produce the item.

    #50 6 years ago

    What international authorities are there to contact?
