Quoted from Wolfmarsh:

Aaron Klumpp - Final Pretrial Conference scheduled for 11/16/2017 at 03:30 PM

Has he ever taken a position on what he knew or didn't know with regards to the license? Are he and Kevin still friends?

Quoted from Wolfmarsh:

Just waiting on more docs/audio to be posted......

As always, thanks for taking the time to bird dog this and provide updates.

I'm sure most, if not all, of us truly appreciate it!

#16853 1 year ago

So when is Kevin back in court?

#16854 1 year ago

Didn't Aaron testify at his dep that Kevin was paying his legal fees?

#16855 1 year ago

Will Kevin have to go back to court at some point?

If true that just means to me that we are paying it through our non-refunded money...

Thanks again Kevin...you prick.

You mean added to a judgement. He doesn't have any money to pay for anything until the next welfare check rolls in.

Yeah and say goodbye to that too, large cuts in entitlement funds being put in place!

#16859 1 year ago

I'll be quite surprised (if not as pissed off as those who were taken) if he doesn't end up in criminal court once the bankruptcy imbroglio is sorted out.

NICE WORD! You don't see it used often. Only reason I know it is because I'm Italian, and English "borrows" it from the Italian word "imbroglio", meaning entanglement. The French also claim first usage of the word: "embrouiller". I don't believe them because language first floated North from Italy (Latin Romance) and they were late for the party . . . .

You can tell the Kulek news is pretty thin when I'm reduced to this kind of post!

I'm kind of surprised this was still up since the article was deleted. Screenshotting for posterity.

Huge thanks for the screenshots. It's gratifying to see that the truth will out and people have been informed. Obviously the children must be given social support etc, but I don't want the good, well-meaning people on that site to be scammed out of money and goods by the brazen, begging parents.

You'd think Kevin would have cracked open one of his pots of gold. It takes some doing to blow $700k- he must have some left? And shame on him for not using his ill-gotten gains for his kids. As usual, his priority is to cover his own ass, even if it puts his children's lives in jeopardy. And he lets his mum and wife take the court actions on their own, without even turning up to court to give them some support. Not much of a man.

Of course I add allegedly, but the truth will out in court, and much already has, even though criminal prosecutions are still awaited. It seems likely Kevin will cut and run later, like his father did. Shouldn't the authorities put a GPS ankle bracelet on him if he's a flight risk?

I don't think spending a few hundred thousand is as hard as people make it out to be, especially when you allegedly give over $100k to a cabinet guy who never produces anything.

I think Kevin truly is broke at this point.

Agreed. Most of us know what traveling to shows can cost. He went to many, and brought an entourage. Rooms, food, transportation, and then whatever other fun stuff they decided was needed. When you travel trying to save money you watch your spending. When the fire hose is gushing money, who cares right?

I think there is a VERY good chance he took some of the money to buy up games and put on route so he can earn cash side business. We know he was at cash auctions buying games. We have seen the red trailer full of route stuff. We know he inquired with a few people to build mames to possibly route. We also know he has a few buddies that run routes which he could hide the games under.

What was the place where he took Predator to put on route when it was a prototype? Where has that guy gone? Mike something or another was the owners name...

#16867 1 year ago

I was pondering the $100k Kevin paid Virtuapins for cabinets, but received $10k of goods. We know Kevin's plan to build Predators was fraudulent. Most believe Kevin was crooked on this from the getgo, others say once he learned it was not possible he should have come clean. Regardless of which you believe, do you think Kevin would hand over $100k in cash to someone, when he wasn't planning to deliver them? That is flushing money down the drain when you know it is a con. Also if he only received 10 cabinets, Kevin would have been all over Paul to return his money or to give him something back of value. So this part of the story is lacking - the where's the fu@kIng money Lebowski part?

The only way I can see Kevin handing over the $100k, which has been proven to occur, is for Paul to have returned $90k+ of cash or goods to Kevin. So as to where the money went, you shouldn't conclude 100k went to pay for cabinets, rather only 10k and the balance of deposit came back to Kevin somehow.

Do I think Kevin spent $500k of collected funds with his meager lifestyle plus attending shows etc? No way in hell. There is money in cans buried somewhere. Unless it floated down the river in recent flooding. Guess in that case Kevin may be expecting to file a claim with his insurance company. "Yeah that's right, I lost $400k in cash that was buried in my yard and State Farm can just write me a check. If you need proof, ask my wife and mom.".

He's not been charged with any crime.

.......Yet.

This is what I'm patiently waiting and watching for. At least that will be satisfaction payback.

#16870 1 year ago

Has he been around to help at all in all of this flood mess? It's like the guys in this family just disappear and the women don't really care. And yet in court Kathy talks about how her husband was in the coin op biz and a really good player, like it's present day. He's been gone (missing) for how long now?

What Prosecutor do you predict will file charges?

#16872 1 year ago

When is the $30k supposed to be paid back?

#16873 1 year ago

I thought the house judgment was to be resolved by July 19th, although I could be wrong. It's posted on here somewhere

I think it was on July 9th (if I read the Court document correctly), but could be wrong. PACER file here:

Dang only a 15 minute post and it's already marked as a key post? Nice!

#16881 1 year ago

Waiting for the highlights

#16882 1 year ago
Quoted from galaxian:

Waiting for the highlights

Summary as listed in the key post:

Audio file, court discussion on house settlement with Amanda. Amanda unable to get loan so far. Deadline extended.

#16883 1 year ago
Quoted from galaxian:

Waiting for the highlights

None really. Says she needs to get a loan and the bank wants to know why she needs the money and what it will be used for. Doesn't sound like she cares much about the loan or settlement. Wasn't hyping the flood or using it as an excuse or anything (other than obviously the loan being more difficult), sounds like the basement was flooded out and about 4 feet into first floor had to be re-sheet rocked.

No victim blaming or accusations we are an adult website filled with perverts or keith is gun wielding crazy person or anything this time, just a regular status conference.

#16884 1 year ago

It is short. 10 min max.

The text below is my quick listen paraphrasing. Feel free to correct. Don't take this as actual "legalese"

Judge: Heard there was a flood, did you work anything out?
Keith: No your honor. Haven't heard from them.
Judge: So did you have insurance? Is the place dry?
Amanda: Only home owner, no flood. Demolition done.
Judge: The house was demolished?
Amanda: No, lower half of wall removal on 1st floor, and basement dried out. . .
Judge: So, the loan?
Amanda: Going to take me a bit to get house ready to . . .
Judge: See you in a few months

Edit: I type slow. There were two posts slipped in before my answer. But sound in the same vein.

#16885 1 year ago

They will walk away from the house. This is probably best case scenario for them"See you in a few months"

#16886 1 year ago
Quoted from Roostking:

I think she really wants the house. No idea what Kevin wants and I don't think she cares what he thinks. He put her in the situation. She wants it over and a "home" for the kids. It is not a soggy house to her and she does have her community around her. Do you think her relationship with Kevin is livin the dream?

I think see would raise money by selling his balls on ebay if it would get anything.

Good points, but I bet if she were to auction his balls off amongst those they defrauded, she might get a decent price lol.

Shall we start a gofundme! Kind of like a wanted poster, but in reverse.

Wow....that you said "wow". Honest mistake, don't try to turn it into something it's not. We all know where you stand at this point..it's crystal clear. In your attempt to become the anti-Hilton, you're now Hilton, part deux.

Please don't rope me in with this guy. I never would root against the pinheads or be happy someone in the right got screwed. I am full of passion and while misguided at times, i am NOTHING like this guy or the friends he protects that have taken actions directly in the face of the pinball community and selfishly for themselves.

Not insinuating present day Hilton....the past where you (and to some degree we) were blind, and in the face of all, continued to harp down a path in contrast to evidence at hand. I think we all appreciate the efforts more recently that you've put towards resolving this fiasco. My point, is that some should do the same, and act positively toward getting this resolved. Not take every opportunity to passively insult the community that's been damaged.

He made an under the table deal with Kevin to buy one of the only Predator games made, knowing full well of everybody else getting stiffed. He made a shill account on here a few months back and posted in this thread for a while trying to defend himself, obviously unsuccessfully. Keith has him named in the lawsuit or whatever you would call it since Mr. Fife has assets from Skit B that belong to the creditors.

He made several shill accounts.

#16899 1 year ago

I can't believe after years that this is not over. I'm afraid that in the long run Kevin and his family will spend every dime of that money for legal recourse or to simply make sure there is no trace of it. They are using the system to their advantage. I wonder how they sleep at night.
