    He's using 5star's text as they reference them as themselves. He may be associated with them or drop shipping from them? He's sold a few, rather cheap but seems to have delivered.
    Meanwhile, somewhere in Oklahoma.

    Unless they get sniped some of those lower end pachislots from leszek2108wlm are going to go for less than $50 (possibly $30):

    This is the cheapee machine that has been making the rounds at the local shops that sell Pachi's in the Toronto area. I must have seen this machine 6 different times at different shops.




    Yours for only $299.00 CDN, nice to know that the price went up after christmas by $50.00. At least at that auction you get a cheapee machine at a cheapee price. At TV Showcase, you get a cheapee machine at a Premium price!

    Cheers,
    James


    Just when you think you've acomplished something!

    Either this guy leszek is a scam artist, or an idiot. I just received an email from him regarding an auction I won on Monday (Casino Baseball Boy 2). Below is the exact cut/paste from this bozo:

    "baseball boy 2 skill stop machine is out of stock
    The one we send you is a very good machine,the same quality.YOU do not have to take it

    Thank You!

    Date Shipped: 01/24/2006"

    Uh...I think this guy needs a lesson in what an auction actually is. (i.e. You only put up for auction WHAT YOU HAVE IN THE FIRST PLACE.) Out of stock? I don't think so!

    His original ad seemed to be associated with 5stardeal.com. However, at the bottom of the above email was the following:


    You can review your account information online at:
    http://www.trademarkpoker.com/merchants/

    But that seems to be a link for the sellers, not the buyers, because I can't access anything there.

    The link from trademarkpoker.com for their "economy" pachislot machines is:

    http://www.trademarkpoker.com/listin...ines%3AEconomy

    Yeah, right...MSRP $499 for Baseball Boy.


    Also, for a previous item I won that should arrive tomorrow (Lucky Cherry), I received the following "odd" email, which was connected to the Lucky Cherry machine that I'd won,

    Item: SKILL SLOT MACHINE LUCKY CHERRY 200 TOKENS FREE

    but had the following information below:

    ORDER DETAIL
    Qty: 1 [ 14-SKILL-C ] - SKILL STOP MACHINE - Economy Selections - Titles may vary


    Apparently, this joker puts up specific machines but then thinks he can substitute from any machines listed on that site in the "economy" section. If he thinks he's going to bait and switch me, oh baby....has he got another thing coming. I don't do "titles may vary". Ever! I'll file a dispute with ebay as soon as the 10 day mandatory waiting period is up.

    caveat emptor...

    buyer beware of this seller!!

    (He also stated in the auction description that he accepts credit card payments separate from PayPal, as well as through PayPal. When I called to use my charge card directly, and not through PayPal, he said he wasn't able to accept direct credit card payments. I asked him why his ad said he did. He said he misunderstood, and thought it meant credit card payments THROUGH PayPal. I let that one slide, thinking maybe it was some honest mistake on his part. But after I got the most recent email from him, I think it goes beyond innocent mistake.)

    The first machine arrived today. It was supposed to be "Lucky Cherry". It was not. So it's been confirmed: This seller is clearly using "bait and switch" tactics. I left a message on his voice mail stating that I did not order this machine, and I expect a call tag from UPS to be issued immediately to pick it up and either provide me with the machine I ordered and paid for, or else refund my money in full.

    Unfortunately, because of the way ebay feedback works, since he has not given me positive feedback - despite the fact that I paid in full immediately -it makes it more difficult to leave feedback about what he's pulling here so other buyers can avoid him, unless they don't care which machine they get. I can either post a negative against him, with the certainty that he'll post a retalliatory negative against me, or else post a "positive", warning other buyers what he's up to. (That will get the message across but not affect his feedback score.) In these types of situations, the ebay feedback system is a joke. But at least members here who read posts in this forum will be advised of what to expect from this seller.

    Even if it gets you a ping it's worth it to mark the guy for bait and switch so others don't fall victim. If he pings you back, file a complaint with eBay.
