Quoted from rubberducks:
No there is NOT zero risk, at all. That has been established.
The buyer's risk lies with the distributor, though, not DP. CoinTaker refused several Alien customers refunds, when the excrement began to hit the fan. Were it not for the takeover and bail out, there would have been no machines delivered. We do not know if CT would have had the money to pay back the buyers - as they'd sent it off to HW already (having assured at least a couple of buyers that their money was safe and they would only pay HW on receipt of goods).
And the manufacturer could not see also a penny (or dollar)
Business is only trust. What EA’s did...
