FFS! Can we just wait to hear it from Kevin. I'm fully paid up $4750, I knew the risks, Everyone did. Sure Kevin said he had the licence (partial or otherwise) And that may or may not be true. Kevin's emails say he is working on a solution. Is he likley to be running off to Mexico with our $$$!? Give him a chance to put things right. We have nothing concrete.
Maybe Kevin IS actually in talks with a manufacturer, maybe kevin does have a guy like , if not Rodger Sharpe himself on the case
Everyone likes to speculate, and come up with accusations with NO proof. We are all in it together. The preorders screaming for their money back- claim down! Because all this shouting and treating is getting you nowhere! Those that don't have any money tied up in it should just leave it alone.
I'm all for an owners only discussion thread.
We saw this sort of thing with TBL, jpop things will get sorted one way or another.
I have just spoken to my bank as I paid through debit card and they say that paypal may be liable as a conduit of payment to Kevin. They too have duty of care.
So I ring paypal over here in UK. I give them a transaction number and they look into details of Skit B account...She was gone for a few minutes to read the notes attached to the account.and comes back with paypal are investigating this as it has media attention.
Kevin can contact Paypal and issue refunds!!! They have logged me as being someone who has contacted them for a refund and will tell kevin. Although she did say that Kevin was trying to rectify things which means either complaintents are sending emails from Kevin or they are reading Pinside/pinballnews!
I asked what if Kevin does not respond and she said that Paypal "may" bear the brunt of it and issue refunds to people. So my advice is everyone contact paypal with transaction details and put presure on them. They don't want this kind off attention the "paypal let a con artist con people and people did not get their money back" sorta thing.
So, no-one has heard anything more from Kevin.
I'm going to call Paypal again in the morning and see if obtaining a crime reference number will help.
Paypal DO have a part to play in this. They have the power to freeze the account and give people money back.
