    So... I don't know the whole story but it appears two guys are fighting over craigslist. I was just looking for project pin the other day and stumbled on this. There are yo momma jokes and other middle school style insults.

    guys this is a once in a lifetime opportunity. it came from a Hollywood prop warehouse so it has to be cool.

    Quoted from GreenMachine19:

    I think I would rather have the IJ for about the same price.

    wow I was just looking at the Boston craigslist after you mentioned the Gorgar. there are a few overpriced games there.

    Subject: Re: Harley Bike on Craigslist
    To: Eric and Barb Schultz <ebtaschultz@gmail.com>
    Thanks your swift response, i went through the description and the
    duration of the item it was sweet-able for me, am okay with the price
    and the condition pasted on cl. I am ready to make instant purchase.
    My mode of payment would be in Certified Check and i
    will arrange for a local pick up as soon as you get the check, because
    that is the only inconvenient means for me and due to my work frame i
    can not be able to get there and i promise everything will go smoothly
    Concerning the pick up, i will arrange for it after you receive the
    payment and it clears... Kindly get back to me with below info so
    that i can proceed with the payment immediately if you are selling to
    me.
    Full Name:
    Address: Not P.O.BOX
    City:
    State:
    Postal Code:
    Total amount for the item
    Phone Number: That i can send text
    Item Name
    And as soon as this is provided, the payment will be overnight to you
    and i will let you know when its mailed out. Thanks and i hope we
    handle this in good faith while waiting to hear from you. i will add
    an additional $20 so that you can hold it for me till the check reach
    you.
    Best Regards

    I've had a response very similar to that. Just curious but lets say someone fell for that, how does this scammer make money off of it? I assume they are located in another country so they wont be shipping it internationally. I get these responses from time to time and I've wondered how that even works.

    Quoted from Beatnik-Filmstar:

    " target="_blank">minneapolis.craigslist.org link
    Williams TAXI Pinball Machine with Marilyn, not Lola - $3000
    "One of only 200 built, Williams Taxi pinball with Marilyn. Only 200 produced and 99%+ were exported. Rumor has it only two remained here in the states."

    so tempted to price police/ correct this guy on the "rarity" of this game.

    #1516 3 years ago

    There is also a post where the picture is a dick... I didn't want to post that as it violates pinside and is unneeded but that's how low they are going. It was entertaining at first but now its just sad that someone takes pinball and pinball pricing that serious.

    Quoted from dmbjunky:

    " target="_blank">fortwayne.craigslist.org link
    DE Star Trek $3500
    This guy keeps relisting this with no pics. It is perfect though so who needs pics. Here's the highlights:
    "I did my research and many have sold for over 4,000 in poor condition"
    "originally sold for 9,800.00. delivered"

    I love when people say they did their research and then you find out their "research" was simply looking on ebay...

    Quoted from jkashani:

    I could not resist:
    This is rare, have never seen one before. What research are you referring to for the price of $4,500
    Hi, I called some pinball distribution companies that deal with vintage machines, and one said can be worth as much as 4500, depending on the condition. Are you a collector?

    You should tell him that his post is on a collector website and we are all making fun of his price...

    #2969 3 years ago
    Quoted from stevevt:

    Firepower 2, dude. And don't even think about swooping in and stealing this one. I already offered $4600. He countered a little higher; we're still negotiating.

    lol i replied asking him if he added an extra zero on accident.

    Quoted from sohchx:

    Price needs to drop by 1K before that ever sells.

    Yeah the price isn't the only funny aspect of that post. I mainly got a kick out of why he was selling it.

    Quoted from Rackleye:

    Is that an aquarium in the "backglass" with a gumball coin mech?

    Pretty sure that's one of those gumball pinball things. Pretty wacky. I'd buy it for 100 bucks.

    #4430 2 years ago
    Quoted from sohchx:

    Not CL, but .......

    But its a collector classic. If this sells, I'll sell my collector classic immediately.

    Are these people on crack? Do they EVER sell anything for that price???

    if you read their item description its pretty funny. "(If you've seen our YouTube show, you know we live to expose liars, cheats, scammers, and swindlers.)"

    #4637 2 years ago
    Quoted from Atari_Daze:

    sfbay.craigslist.org link
    Selling it as they need to free up space in the kitchen!

    I feel like whoever those guys are, they are frequently posted here on the Craigslist laughs thread. I've seen a few of their games on here. Pretty sure they have a 15k TSPP up for grabs lol.

    #4639 2 years ago
    Quoted from Grayman_EM:

    I think you will love this one as that and the rust are all that is holding it together!
    york.craigslist.org link
    Is the first time I have seen this one but it does say "Flower Power" on it.
    Sorry forgot it's RARE!

    Lol looks like the guy even did through "research" on his pricing.

    Quoted from ForceFlow:

    I can't say I've had much luck with letgo either. I either get no response or a weird response, so my success rate has been a giant goose egg so far.
    I also tried listing an item once, but all I got was bot spam.

    I used it after just reading this page and found a cocktail arcade game for $50.00 and I'm picking it up tonight! score! thanks guys.

    Craigslist pinball turf war ... Not their best work, but two jerks from New Hampshire occasionally plaster craigslist with their hatred for one another.

    The price isn't that bad BUT the big kicker on this one is "If you're not good at jiggling light bulbs or don't know what WD-40 is, you might want to pass." A.) don't degrade pinball repair to just jiggling bulbs and B.) who uses WD40 for repairs??

    I have seen a lot of ads like that on Ebay for pinball machines, and I find it extremely tacky. Our of protest, I think it would be hilarious if some overweight guy did the same thing but of him in a speedo posing in front of overpriced games.
