I would not doubt the majority of the review is real, but I think the price was jacked up out of anger towards being scammed. I don't know if it is the same owner, but the original owner was a great scam artist from Vegas and had help from a First Amendment lawyer on what to say and not say.
Not to be mean, but you can walk right into this place! I used to live in that area and it has neon lights in the windows! Anyone with common sense would know that nothing really fun goes on if the doors are still open after 15 years! It is in DuPage county and they would LOVE to shut this place down, but this place goes by the letter of the law and they go right up to the line and never ever cross it, so it is still open after all of these years! Real providers screen! If you can walk right in then that alone should put up some signals....plus you can Google their number and it comes right up location and all.
I did something sort of similar a number of years ago. In my defense, I thought I was going into a strip club. I did not know from poviders and TER? There was no internet yet. The little head just took over. I also spent only 12-1400, which was more than way too much.
He needed and wanted to be taught a lesson, and they delivered that lesson.
The real question is what he will do next.
And to those who doubt that someone that stupid can even have that much money, I can only say - really? None of you have ever met somebody who is really good at something, and completely without any common sense, and/or unable to do other very simple things? I had a friend, sadly deceased, who was COO of one of the 100 largest companies in Chicago, over 10,000 people reporting up to him, and he could not balance a checkbook, just could not do it. Also had a tendency to get lost when his PA was not guiding him. More than once I wondered how he got to where he was, but he was very good at his job, made a crap load of money, while being a wonderful, funny, unassuming person.
