    PG Pinball anyone heard of them?

    Company advertising as pgpinball in Glynde SA. Scam?
    Have many titles advertised at fairly decent prices. Will only accept bank transfer. ABN checks out...anyone delt with them?

    What's their website? If it's a default WIX template that looks like what http://ultpinballmachines.com/ and http://www.ipropinballmachines.com/ were (glad they finally took them down), with their social account linking to Wix's because they couldn't bother changing them and have no social presence anyway, then it's a scam.

    What would immediately tell you it's a scam is they have no physical store and you can't inspect the games prior to purchasing, or with weird conditions.
    Check the address, scammers use existing addresses but it's something else there (ultpinballmachine was the southport hospital on the gold coast...).

    They were also "recycling" the ABN of another company with a name close to theirs (for example ultimate arcade for ultimate pinball)

      OK found them: https://www.pgpinball.com.au
      Scam.

      "Do you accept pickup?"
      "No, At the moment we only do online sales and deliver within 7 days after confirmation of payment."
      Sure.

        I can't stand these scams. I remember watching a TV show called homeland and some scammer hacker got on this cia girls computer. She flirted with him met up and beat the crap outta the guy. Someone needs to find these people.

                They conveniently used the same initials as the business they borrowed the ABN from (Pure Gaming Machines) so exactly the same practices as the previous ones.
                https://abr.business.gov.au/ABN/View/87825932144

                The owner of the business they stole the first ABN from had them taken down and is now working on this new one with the police. Seeing it's the same guys, hopefully it will go quicker this time.

                    Hopefully that'll be another scammer getting a probably slap on the wrist. How the hell to you stop this scammer mentality?

                      Aussie Arcade. Be smart. Do homework. Ask questions. Sniff for rats, genuine sellers will not feel ill of it.

                      Better late than never, but to help inbeween rouges being stopped, can AA have a "scam list" Arcade King ? (I avoided "black list" on purpose)

                        A black list that's a good idea

                          Guys, the mods can discuss this but the legal issues with such a list could be savage. I don't think it is doable.

                            Got my invoice for a Fathom. Spoke to a lovely Indian gentleman when I gave the number a call. Can't see the machine first and they also don't use freight companies as they do deliveries themselves
