Will it be done in time for the Predator 4 movie?
If you ask the judge in small claims court how to collect money in a judgement, I have heard he will say something like "hmmmm..somebody wrote a book on that once."
The true story may never be known but the man had a dream and many believed in that dream. Not all dreams come true.
Is there an chance that those that did not send any money might also receive a refund?
Quoted from Enaud:
I spoke with the court and they said this is typically the way these court cases go. You win, but still can't collect the money. They either spend it all or hide it.
I have heard one judges answer to the question " OK, I won now how do I collect?" was " I think somebody wrote a book about that".
I still have a hard time believing people sent this guy money in the first place.
So who's willing to pick up the pieces, sit down with Fox and see if we can get this sucker licensed after all?
Quoted from Rarehero:
Keeping it open also reminds everyone that there are two scumbag criminals walking free who defrauded hundreds of people and stole their money.
Keeping it open reminds me that there are a bunch of people with more money than sense that got suckered into sending this clown money, and don't stand a chance of ever getting any of it back. But will probably keep on whining about it even after this clown is dead and buried.
I didn't say it was OK anybody got scammed. We all have.
What I was saying is it was a lot of money to trust in the hands of somebody with just a good sales pitch. I know I wouldn't have chanced it. Especially for that much money.
I got screwed on a car deal once because the little bitch didn't actually own it. But she was somebody I knew so I went thru with it. After they came and took the car and I got nothing back, I just cut my losses and moved on because reality was I would never see a dime of it. But I did tell myself if I ever saw her again, I would punch her in the face, girl or not. Fortunately it never came to that.
Point is either the system will work, or as usual it won't. Or you can try to take this clown on face to face. Nothing else is going to do any of you any good except eat you up inside.
Quoted from Rarehero:
A criminal is still on the loose, and until justice is served, this thread remains relevant.
In this case, justice will never be served. Putting him in jail will never get people their money back.
But there is a chance some learned a valuable, although costly lesson and will finally be able to get on with their lives. Then there are those that will let it eat away at them forever.
A buddy of mine got sued for punching the dude that ripped him off. It ended up on Peoples Court.
You know what he told Wapner?
"At least I got to hit the guy"
We already went over this already. Everybody handles things in their own way.
Sorry some clown ran off with all the money.
Quoted from PoMC:
They had a hand in losing any chance the pin would be completed and delivered, certainly.
Oh, I thought it was because there was no license to begin with and it was just a big con taking advantage of peoples wants for a pinball machine themed after a movie they like.
Quoted from RobT:
He had plenty of enablers, that's for sure.
Going back and looking at some of the early threads, no doubt about that! Pinside as a whole, enabled it to go on and on without much doubt.
When throwing that kind of money out there for an unknown result, a little homework never hurts.
Kudos to those that were wise enough to do their own research about the license and get their money back.
When I put myself in anonymous' shoes I say,
"Heck ya, I got my money back! Now I'm bailing from this whole scene...I'm over it!"
Was he also denied the Experts of Dangerous license? That was the one I was considering putting my money on.
Quoted from shovelhed:
Pinball is supposed to be a tight knit group. They took care of themselves and fucked the other buyers.
I wouldn't say anybody that had nothing to do with the pimping of the game or exchange of other people's money in this ordeal fkd anyone.
It is each person's own responsibility to research what they are buying and who they are giving their money to.
Quoted from fosaisu:
I like it! Your comment "was safe for work" circa 1985, but times have changed and with shifting workplace norms and standards of professional conduct, we're going to have to let you go ...
Yeah, if memory serves me correctly, I might have posted an image in the wee hours of the night, but then thought better of it. I'm not really sure. It might be on my home computer so I can size that up when I get there.
OK sorry. Done. I can't tell the difference. All this virtual shit's the same to me.
The law is great at passing judgements. Collecting money owed to any body but the legal system itself, not so much.
I'm surprised to see this thread still going. What happened, did deeproot hire him?
