#2 Consumer Comment

"customer comment" above is a fraud

AUTHOR: Hate con artists - (United States of America)

The person that posted the customer comment is clearly one of the operators of the scam and not a "innocent observer or customer" as he/she claims to be. Theirs is simply an attempt to muddy the complaint and have the free reign to continue scamming people at their liquidation sales out of gobs of money... 1000's of dollars at a time from people.

This person who posted above (probably the person that runs the Central Liquidation) is first off an idiot for posting their counter comment and posing as just another innocent "game playing customer", when in fact they are clearly stated as Central Liquidors and in league with the scum bags who run this scam and the ones perpetrating the fraud...  No one will read the above and think "oh... theres a consumer who had a good experience at that scam of a game. Now I think I will give them my money" 

Note to the moron scammer who posted, do you really think ppl will read your post and think that an objective outsider, an "innocent, happy customer" who had no problem with the "ping pong points" game will go home and search on the internet for someone who might be complaining about it? Really? Bec I know how I always go home and get on the internet to rag on the people who complain about their bad experiences where I had a good one..uh huh.... Yea, not to swift.... Stick to scamming ppl and not posing as objective innocent customer. You dont do "objective innocent customer" very well..

The fact is, that this game is NOT like "any other carnival game" where you try to get the ball in the basket or whatever. For starters, in any carnival game, you pay for each try... $5 or even $10 (usually for multiple tries). In any amusement park or carnival game they dont double the price each time you want to play again hoping to build upon your points from your previous chances to play. I never paid $160 or $320 or $640 to take a single shot with a basketball at any carnival....

In any carnival game, they dont refrain from telling you that the cost to play again doubles every time you hit a "bonus" (read: bogus!) until you already have sunk over $100 into trying to accumulate points.

In any carnival game you arent scammed into thinking how easy it was to accumulate 90 plus points with your initial few dollars but all of a sudden to pull the last 5 points you need from the same basket of balls that you just pulled a quick 90 points from, miraculously becomes impossible for everyone that plays the game. In any carnival game, you dont watch numerous ppl all get stuck on 97 or 98 points out of 100 needed to be accumulated and miraculously no one can grab those last 2 points needed all at the very same moment everyone's luck just runs out.... hmmmmmm. Such a bummer.
 
In any carnival game the schmucks that run it dont tell you that "if you walk away now, you will lose all the money you already put into accumulating 98 of 100 points needed. Why dont  you go to the ATM its on the 3rd floor. I will wait for you to come back with more money"

Dont bother covering up for yourselves or your gangster buddies. I hope you grow a conscious and shut down your sick little scam of a game before someone who spends a little too much of their life savings trying to win 15 TV's gets really angry and decides they are going to teach you sick people a lesson for ripping them off.... I dont know that hustling your bags of stolen money out the back door will help you then....

Customer Overspending Themselves

AUTHOR: Central Liquidators - (United States of America)

As a bystander to this event mentioned, I have to say that this customer is full of bologney. I was playing this game while the customers standing next to me were playing as well. The set up is more or less correct, in other words you do have to make 100 points in order to win a jumbo prize (big screen tv, gaming console, etc) but what this customer fails to divulge is that there are other prizes as well to win on the way to getting 100 points. It is no different that any other prize game at an arcade. For every number you pull, it corresponds to a value on a chart that awards or penalizes different numbers. You can win points, lose points, win smaller prizes or lose your game. Personally, I bought the first ball, hit a small prize and called it a day. I saw another person buy two balls and make 60 points and he was smart enough to quit as well. Obviously, most people aren't going to win, because if everybody who stuck a dollar into an arcade game that dispenses an iPod as the grand prize won one, then how could the operator stay in business? Anybody can put hundreds of dollars into an arcade game at your local arcade trying to win an iPod or fake gold watch, but if you're dumb enought to do that, then I guess you must also be too dumb to use correct spelling or punctuation or grammar (oh, looks like the above report!). I spoke with one of the operators the day after and was told that it is more of a promotional booth for the liquidation sale, because everybody who stops in gets a free chance to win something. It's not intended for people to keep playing over and over again who don't hit a number. I mean think about it, that's like getting mad at the operator of the basketball game at the local carnival because you keep giving him $5 to win a jumbo prize but you can't make the d**n basket. How does that make sense? This is just an example of somebody who overspent themselves and wants to whine about it. Well, here's a question for you; if you're gonna whine, what's the baby gonna do? Maybe you need a box of kleenex!
