On Sunday August 1st. I contacted George Garrel from Vidco Amusements in Redding, Ca about an add he had on craigslist for 23 arcade games, 3 sticker machines, and 5 mega touch game machines. George listed on craigslist that 21 out of 23 games worked properly. I agreed to pay George $3,950.00 for 23 arcade games and a deposit for an Indiana pinball machine.

When he had delivered them on Monday August 2nd I discovered after he had left that only 3 out of 23 units worked properly. I called George to ask him why werent the machines that he listed as working and complete turning on at all. He replied by saying I will have a technician call you tomorrow about that I remember George asking me where is the closest bank so I can go cash your check. Well, not 10 minutes after I told him, the check was cashed and the money was pulled out of my account. Thats when things starting feeling fishy to me. [continued below]....
.....  

I also noticed that most of the arcade machines had locks on them that I could not open. When I called George about this, he said he would send the keys down. He sent the keys down on Tuesday August 10th and what do you know they did not fit the doors, or locks. I called George on Thursday August 12 about getting my deposit for the pinball machine and other two arcades back. He cussed me out and said screw you! Needless to say, I got nowhere with George.

I have now realized that I have been a victim of fraud. I have talked to several other people in this industry and they had told me that they have also fallen victim to Georges smooth talking to sell them what he claims to be working arcade machines. He dropped off a bunch of worthless games that he claimed was working, which indeed they were not. I still till this day do not have the three additional arcade games that he promised to drop off on Monday August 9th and that I had already paid for. All communication between George and I has stopped. He will not text or pick up my phone calls. Stay away from this guy, he will rip you off as well.
