(SCAM AD) CIRQUS VOLTAIRE Pinball Machine w/ Green Neon!

Post by janemill28 »

Superb Collector Quality w/ Clearcoated
playfield & Chrome Upgrade Kit.
All of the mechanical assemblies have been
serviced and rebuilt w/ new parts, including the
two flipper assemblies & pop bumpers. All of the
electronic boards have also been cleaned, tested
and serviced as well.
Everything on this game works as it did when the
game was new, and should give you and your family
many years of enjoyment. The game is set on 'free
play'.Almost 60 detailed photos are included below of
the actual game being
sold so that you can ascertain and decide for
yourself as to the quality of this restoration. We have restored
and sold over 500
machines in the past 6 years, most every one
selling on eBay just like this one!
Another game that is widely considered to be one
of the best pinball machines ever made!

Looks like a Kijiji scammer has made their way onto maaca. That is a treasure cove's machine. Here is a link to the real machine.

Damn it got quiet in here.

I'm confused. Seller says: "Almost 60 detailed photos are included below of the actual game being sold".

I only see 1. :?

JANEMILL28, please confirm your exact location. Data indicates where your IP is located, and it isn't Delaware. If we discover that you are NOT who you say you are, administrators will be forced to perform the immediate deletion of the ad AND termination of your account. Your ad is in violation of using someone else's image, false representation, lack of promised images and lack of a clearly defined price.

You have 24hrs to respond.

Thank you for your cooperation.

A simple thing for "due diligence".
Check when the member was last "online" and publicly visible.

To be clear, I am indicating what the "info" shows for any member if you search them.

AZ and I have been friends a long while now and if you search, our profiles all show us
somewhere between what AZ is and what this poster is.

Sparky is "generous" with a 24 hour "please comply" with details order.
Just saying that despite criticism, this forum's "watcher's" do protect us all.

While letting us all babble on anyway...

Cheers.
Salut!
