PITTSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA SCAM ALERT FROM STEEL CITY GAMERZ | MOBILE GAME TRUCK RENTAL PARTY
Steel City Gamerz is aware of numerous websites that offer Video Game Parties in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and beyond that are not on the up and up with their practices. These scammers normally use websites with city names in them and do not own or run any video game trucks of their own. They will take your booking and your money for much more than the normal booking price, then try to find someone to cover your party. When they cannot find someone to cover your party, they will not call you, you will have no one show up and they will blame someone else for backing out when you call. You will have to fight them to get your money back and they will try to say it’s this or that companies fault. These companies have targeted several types of businesses in the past including skydiving and other thrill sports.
***WHAT CAN I DO AND THINGS TO PAY ATTENTION TO***
HIGH RATES: These companies will charge you 2 or 3 times the regular booking price. Click here for our rates.
BACKGROUND NOISE: These companies use call centers. If you hear a lot of background noise be EXTREMELY cautious!!
OWNER: Ask to speak with the owner. If you google (my name) you will see references linking Steel City Gamerz to our local community. I take time to speak with each and every booking we receive. We are dedicated in providing great customer service from start to finish!!
ASK QUESTIONS: These companies DO NOT own a Mobile Game Truck and are not affiliated with us. Click here for more information about Steel City Gamerz Mobile Game Truck. Customers have mentioned to me that they book parties on our behalf which is NOT TRUE.
SOCIAL MEDIA: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Google + are great ways to showcase what our business has to offer. Ask for links to any of their social media sites. Again, these companies are in no way affiliated with Steel City Gamerz.
