I just got the email that said it shipped so we'll know in a few days. Still not happy that I sent them money even if I do get the part.
Part did arrive today. I did as suggested and spit on it. Then I cursed at it a bit and then gave it the bird. I then cleaned it up. Then I took a shower because I felt dirty. So yes, MAD Amusements is now *pinballparts* on eBay.
Honestly I wasn't worried over getting the part, which I did get. I'm in the US and he hasn't been known to scam here. And I was aware of the eBay/PayPal coverage. I was just more disappointed that I unknowingly supported a business that has ripped off so many in the pinball community overseas. But thanks for the support.
Why would you want to fool the IP address to see things for sale from someone who is known to rip off people outside the US? I realize this was probably just a general response but please remember the point of the thread.
