Woke up this morning all smiles prepared to take a trip up to the Catskills to pick up a Dr Dude for 700. I spoke with the owner, (John,) twice on Friday at length and he was holding the pin for me at his mom's to pick up on Saturday morning. The seller was supposed to shoot me one final pic of the mpu board at 8am and then I was going to head on up. By the time 10:30 rolled around I decided to call to see what happened. He picked up right away and when I asked why I never received the pic he said "I'm confused, you're Chris who came up from Long Island this morning? I just sold the machine to you? Is there a problem?"
Well turns out a couple of classless clowns showed up at John's mom's this morning and posed as me when the seller pulled up to his mom 's to take the pic. He saw a NY area code when they called and assumed it was me. He then asked them, "Are you Chris who drove up from Long Island?" They said oh yes it was a nice drive, even though their area code was 845. John and I spoke for over a 30mins the day before so he asked, I bet your nephew is excited about getting the pin and they told him oh yes he can't wait. He again thought it was me when the guy's 1st concern was looking at the batteries on the mpu. When John put 2 and 2 together he was embarrassed and kept explaining to me why he thought they were me. John couldn't have been more apologetic and shared the # the a$$ hats used with me. Never once have I ever stepped on someone's deal on the phone or in person. Shame on you two!
I'm sure both clowns laughed all the way back to their place but I must thank them. If not for their classless move I would have been on the road on the way up to the Catskills instead of picking up this bad boy less than 15minutes from my house!! This was one of my target pins and I found it 5 mins after it was posted. Guy owned it for a decade bought from the dealer that used to be next to Babylon bowling lanes. Everything works, perfect dmd, perfect apron, the playfield is great with no wear by the three holes. The cabinet is solid with a couple of the scratches and piece of wood chipped off in the back. She could use a good cleaning , a new playfield window and the rails need to be re plated but other than that the boards and connectors look great. Thanks classless clowns! Hope karma brings you exactly what you deserve.
