I NEVER pay off systems or games before their release. the problem with GameStop is that when you pick something up they only asked for your phone number. I fully paid off a system before that was preordered for release and we all know how hard they are to get on day one, but someone else had come in and given my phone number so they took my system without any identification. They must've been close enough to me when I preordered and paid for it to hear my phone number....Never again.
No worries though...I called GS headquarters and spoke to reps, wrote a letter to the CEO whose info was given to me regarding where to send it so that advisors read it, and even of HE didn't read it someone did since I got the system, 2 controllers and 5 games for free... Now the HQ DEMANDS that all Gamestops that I named in my area require ID for EVERYTHING that's reserved, and I was told to call the specific dept. if I saw anything different (kind of like a spy I guess lol)
