Craigslist scam that I haven’t come across before.
This guy has a Funhouse for sale and it’s only 1400!! It’s currently in Mexico and all I have to do is send an $800 deposit and he'll ship it ASAP. Once I am satisfied I can send the remainder of the balance.
What made this scam unique is that the guy wanted to talk on the phone, and we did. He explained that he is renovating his "game house" and is selling a few machines. This is where a lot more red flags showed up. I asked him some pinball questions like what's your favorite game, favorite designer, etc. and I could tell he had no idea about pinball. He's English was terrible too, not a sign that it's a scam but still made me wonder.
Goes by the name Perry Lawson (LOL).
