Reproductions parts Travis Reynolds ''group buy''

Post by HPR Pinball »

Je me prépare a faire un gros achat sur le site de Travis Reynolds arcade repro creators bientot.
Je lui ai déjà acheté son joystick repro de 720 voilà 3 ans, c'est une vrai merveille, connecté a mame ca fonctionne a la perfection.

Allez voir ca même si ca ne vous intéresse pas vraiment, ca vaut le coup d'oeil, ce gars fait des merveilles !!!!!
https://www.facebook.com/groups/2171008 ... 505144218/

Ce qu'il fait est unique, ne dureras pas donc c'est un accès très limité qui est maintenant disponible pour certain de ses produits.
Si vous voulez acheté qque chose laisser-moi savoir et j'ajoute votre commande a la liste d'épicerie.

Je me propose d'acheter son controller repro de Paperboy. Quoi 1000$$$ !!!

Alors voilà ma logique la-dedans.
Une Paperboy originale:
-Je n'ai plus de place
-Les boards valent une fortune et sont unique a cette game
-Souvent cette game présente des glitchs graphique qui vont ma tapper sur les nerfs, une réparation de boards coute une fortune surtout s'il faut shipper ca au usa avec tout le stress que ca va me donner, ça ne me tente pas.
-La game vaut aussi une fortune et pas trouvable bien sur.
-Si elle arrive sur le marché ca va etre soit un avocat ou un médecin qui va l'acheté, je ne suis pas compétitif au niveau monétaire.
-Le moniteur étant un médium resolution est archi plus rare a trouvé au cas ou il serait a remplacer.

Cout de l'opération évaluer sur 5 ans, achat de la game + l'investissement de restoration+réparation 7000$

Un controle repro plogguer sur mame.
-Gameplay pareil, dailleur je la joue actuellement avec mon yoke Star Wars, ca fonctionne a merveille. Pourquoi alors le controleur de Paperboy repro, parce que je suis fou !! Je suis pas mal certain qu'il va toujours valoir son prix, coté investissement ca a un certain bon sens.
-La game va toujours fonctionné a la perfection sur mame.
-Pas si chère comparer a l'autre option au final.

Je vais aussi lui acheté d'autre joysticks repro, Xybots, Assault, Tapper, pourquoi ?? Parce que c'est la facon la moins chère de tripper sur ce hobby et aussi pour l'espace bien sur. J'ai une obsession, joué le plus de game sur mame possible autrement qu'avec la configuration double joysticks 8 way + 12 pitons car les arcades c'est pas ca, les games d'arcade c'est un concentré d'un paquets de sensations et d'expériences différentes de jeux video.
The video game i want to play is always the one i don't have :FP:
Les arcades, j'suis tombé d'dans quand j'tait pti !! :-)

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO !

Travis Reynold is known scammer. BIG TIME !!!

That's not even his real name .
He's been known to go by Adam Judd, Dave Adams, Travis Reynolds, and other names

He scammed me and several others on KLOV over 10 years ago
(... I lost several thousand dollars !!! ) .
He was using the company name RAM CONTROLS and going by the name Dave Adams at the time.

There is an entire section dedicated to his scamming .

https://forums.arcade-museum.com/forums ... ls-com.78/
https://forums.arcade-museum.com/thread ... ts.425923/

He has the same scam : he provides a few decent parts, and when you get "comfortable" with him , he takes your money and disappears.
NB. Most of what he sells is probably stolen from someone else .

I was actually buying eprom chips from him back in the day.
I probably made 7 or 8 purchases of $200 -$300 each over the course of 2 years, then he offered me the motherlode ; his entire supply, 30,000 chips.
I fell for it, lost several thousand dollars .
He did the same thing with many arcade collectors ; he promised a fully repro'd Star Wars sitdown cabinet for $3000 .
Took the money from several people and disappeared.
He asked to "borrow" many expensive parts to make repros (Paperboy handle bars, Lunar Lander Thurster joystick, Star wars yoke controller, etc...)
and never returned them.

I know a woman who lost $60,000 to him.
She hired a detective to find him, sued him, won, ... and never got her money back.

The list of his scamming is wide-spread and on-going for over 15 years.

There are lawsuits all over the place about this guy.
There is even a website dedicated to his scamming: http://www.adamjudd.info/

This guy is major scumbag and it's a travesty that he is not in jail.

I can not emphasize enough how much of a bad idea it is to be dealing with this piece of dirt.

STAY AWAY !!!!!

Fuc*k, thanks a lot. He make really beautiful repro parts, that's a shame :( :(

I remember ram control, bought a repro MH roller, very nice repro but waited many months for it and finally got it after few emails.

I'm not sure if i bought the 720 repro from him or another person, the sale was advertised here few years ago. No problem received it in mormal time.

I will write to him about his reputation and see what he have to say, but surely will not send more money.

Are you covered by ebay if the seller never delivers?
Is ebay covered by the credit card internet purchase guarantee, or is that internet guarantee a myth?

There a lot of speculation that he was getting Chinese vendors to send him "samples"
of parts they could repro, and he would never pay them.

As much as this guy is scum, he's smart and clever.
I firmly believed in him at first (even defended him on-line ), until he took my money.

That's why he's such a good con-man. He builds trust with decent products,
but bails when he gets a good score.

The KLOV forum had a running list of all the people he had scammed,
and the value of goods was over $50,000 !

He'll probably deny it , then ban you...

I had a long discussion with Travis and also read klov discussions about this.

Look like he's not the same person from ram controls, but he bought parts from ram.

He use Stripe for payment and i can use credit cards, credits cards will refund if something is wrong as a protection.

Steph, did you send money to Travis or another person ?

I can assure you he is the same person.

Many people have tracked his home address as being the same as Jan Judd, his wife, who is also a scam artist.

He is very good at what he does, and plays the long game with smaller items to find a sucker for the big score.

I dealt with him when he was known as Dave Adams. I made all my smaller purchases using paypal, so I was protected.
When he offered me the big eprom deal , he suggested a bank transfer to avoid $200 in Paypal fees.
That should have been a BIG red flag, but he had delivered on everything he had promised in the past,
so I had no reason to be suspicious. After not getting anything for 4 weeks I started asking questions, he strung me along
for another 4 months before I realized I got scammed. When I challenged him, he changed his e-mail.

Some people "will" get their products, but others will get scammed...

--

If you are actually in contact with him, let me know his contact info ... A LOT of people would like to talk to him...

Me and others have tried , believe me ... !

But the cost and time needed , made it impractical.
(... you have to open a lawsuit in the State where the crime occurred, ie, where he lives, in California .. )

Even though he scammed many people, Police won't get involved in such "petty" on-line crimes.

He knows how to keep his cons just small enough not to get the Police involved.

The one person I know who did sue him, paid almost $8k in lawyer fees and detective fees,
...she won her suit, but he never paid (as far as I know )

He's a career scammer, and will probably continue to get away with it...

To the best of anyone knowledge, his real name is Adam Judd
(... because he wife is Jan Judd ).

He started RAM Controls using the name Dave Adams (that's how most people on KLOV know him as ).
He also went as Jim Bloomquist, an "employee" of RAM Controls.
When RAM controls blew-up in 2011, he disappeared , ... only to come back on FaceBook as Travis Reynolds.

I don't believe for one second that Travis is a different person who bought RAM Control's inventory.
It's the same guy.

The detective found the guy (as Adam Judd), served him with a lawsuit, but he never showed-up in court,
... and promptly moved to a new house.

He doesn't buy houses, he rents them. He often doesn't pay the landlord , gets kicked out, and moves on to the next rental house .

Like I said, the guy is a Professional Scammer...
