RikaKazak Posted December 17, 2013 Share Posted December 17, 2013 So I went to collect on my bulk candy machines yesterday, and when I arrived on one location, the amount of money inside the machine was WAY less then it should of been. Since it's the first service of the machine, and I always put in "1 bag of candy per canister" during the initial drop off, I know pretty much how much candy it should look like vs. how much money is in the machine. Problem is, when I arrived, I should of had about $30 worth of quarters (in 2 months time, so nothing great, nothing horrible). I actually had $3.25. So it's clear something fishy is going on. The machine wasn't tampered with, and the vendstar is brand new (well it set in a box for 3-4 years from the person I bought it from, but it was never even put together before me). The only thing I could think of is, there is another vendstar3000 I put my machine next to, and they might of "just happened" to have a key and either intentionally or accidentally took the money out. They used a different MADE UP cancer charity, so they seem to not be totally ethical, and they didn't have a phone number or anything on the machine. What should I do? I could put a different machine in (I have a 1800 sitting in the garage, also a random no brand machine). I could just pull my machine out. I could leave a note. I could take the money out of their machine. Seems like I have a ton of options. My thought: I was thinking of taping a note on the back of their machine (where the money access cover is), make sure it's a small note so no one else can see it, and just "taking it from there." I also planned on changing the locks on my machine (which I have a million extras of). Also I made sure when I put my machine on location that we didn't offer any of the "same" candy. He has runts, MMs, skittles. I have MI, HT, PMM there. So he might be upset I joined his location, but at least I didn't offer the same candy he does. What do you guys think?
