Just a PSA for everyone. I was scammed into sending someone money for a pair of pinballs (Tycoon and RBION) and an old slot machine last week. This was to a guy by the name of Kyle Fuller, whom Jason Wilson and I both have bought games from before. He actually hit up Jason and I both for this deal, Jason passed on it and I took him up on it. He had me send the money to another guy in the hobby, Daniel Dippolito. I had no idea it was going to someone else, I was just given an email to send the money to via PayPal. He then got Daniel to send the money to him via a service at Walmart.
Either way, I want to make folks aware of what has happened that it might not happen to you. Kyle has turned off all his forms of communication and claimed to be moving out of state to Colorado to Jason and I, from Suwannee, Georgia. Just giving you guys a heads up. It took me doing some detective work, finding his parents in George via google and an address he'd given me and Jason to check shipping prices. Jenn May was supposed to pick these games up for me and alerted me to not being able to get in touch with him which is how I moved fast on it all. Please be careful out there. It does appear that I will be getting my money back through PayPal and the bank working together. However, I'm afraid Daniel may not. It was $2500, so that's not easy for anyone to lose these days.
