    Been looking online for a Williams Funhouse pinball machine. Expensive if restored ($11k and up). Came across this place in St. Paul, MN that is selling a refurbished one for $1300. Been emailing with someone from Pinball Avenue Tel: (320) 216 0206 E: [email protected] | W: http://www.pinballavenue.com/ Physical Address: 655 Fairview Ave N, St Paul, MN 55104. The address is a warehouse area that I know has a gym and other shops. The salesman said they are moving and everything is on sale and sent pictures of the machine. Thoughts? Anyone heard of this company? Did a quick check and could not find them under business licenses in Minnesota or on the MN BBB.

    If its too good to be true, it is....

    The $1900 Monster Bash is a dead giveaway that it's a scam.

    Ghostbusters for $2,200?

    Give me a break.

    Look at their phone number area code 320. Here in the cities it'd be 651,763, or 952.

    The only pinball retailer still in existence that I know of in the Twin Cities is Vintage Gameroom. I don't know if Summit is still around.

    Scam.

    The website domain isn't even two weeks old.

    It's yet another one of those drive-by pinball scam sites.

    If the internet sluthes can find evidence... report that website to the ISPs hosting them.

    Nice inheritance.

    I'm selling my husbands 2020 Corvette, after I caught him cheating on me.

    Western Union me $5000 and I'll ship it to your door free

    I got such a huge response from my previous inheritance that I've decided to inherit several more and sell for the same price. First come first served. Only 5 left.

    First off, a restored funhouse is NOT 11k absolute ripoff. Should be like 8 or 9 tops. You can buy a decent example for 5 grand.

    Secondly, if you have to ask, yes, it’s a scam.

    All Gottlieb for sale ads are scams...

    That's about a quarter mile from one of my work accounts. I'll pop over this afternoon and offer to help them move some pins around.

    Was someone shot in it? You have been trying to dump this murder car for Months. Scam.

    You can right click any picture in Chrome and select "Search Google for image". It will assuredly find something relatively close but usually the first one or two photos it finds are the ones that were stolen. Use this in your arsenal.

    Jesus! I get it. No need to continue to beat the horse. It's dead. Heaven forbid someone new to this has a question.

    I'm pretty sure everyone was trying to help you. Just had a little fun with it.

    Anyways.. I thought this was going to be a thread about Deeproot pre-orders.

    I first came across a variant of the murder car scam back in ‘79. An older cousin was telling me about a new Trans Am that somebody had shot himself in for sale cheap. I bet the story is even decades older than that.
