Quoted from BlackTiePinhead:
So that I can follow up clearly, lets go through the timeline....
May 7th- Got connected with Colt.
May 10th- Confirmed for 1 of 14, with billing addy and all the pertinent information
May 11th- Provided CC for full payment over the phone to Colt directly, so that I could avoid any issues
Jun 23rd- Asked for an update, no response....
July 3rd- Asked for another update, got a pic of boxes in hand
July 6th- Ad goes on Pinside
July 8th- Call Colt
July 9th- Call Colt
July 12th- Call Terry directly, get told they have no record of my purchase, and my email response from him was "We are sold out, sorry"
within 10 minutes of me being off the phone with Terry, Colt is texting me up about how he's trying to play 'musical pinball' and he sold too many. After being confronted with his Pinside ad, he states "you can see there aren't 14".... as if that's a great argument? So Colt apparently has the record of my purchase, but Terry does not. This is now evident, after what I can only assume was an angry call from Terry to Colt (timing checks out)
Now with all this said, and convos that be supported by screen caps, Colt himself mentions keeping a few to resell. Not at any point in my follow up was there an issue of payment, processing, shipping, or availability. When the distro sends pics of NIB games, wouldn't you think you're golden? The only logical explanation to me, is they decided to upsell it at a higher price, or for a "better client".
Their (Moss) position is Colt never actually charged my CC, which after having to go back through records, is correct (I'll take the heat for the misrepresentation, because I had to call my accountant to find this out). In my mind, payment was rendered when my CC was provided, on May 11th, I actually told him I could do a bank draft, but if they were willing to do CC, I'd take the points. To me it was never about the money. It was about the machine. I'm not a flipping the game for thousands more, I'm a player who wanted the game in my house. If we'd like to talk about actual $ amounts, the amount over MSRP for the replacement cost would be the money I'm technically out (Currently 13k)
So Moss, you're correct, you don't have my money, but that's more due to Colt's utter incompetence, than my lack of payment. My main question for Stern, is exactly how many LE's did Moss receive?
So to summarize.......Colt "I am a Lawyer" Moss, you can go love yourself and your texted midnight threats of a defamation lawsuit....You're an incompetent excuse for a businessman, and attorney #StrictlyBusiness [quoted image]
