DERRY, N.H. -
A New Hampshire man lost his life savings playing a carnival game, and he is now claiming he was conned.
Henry Gribbohm tells WBZ News he lost his life savings of $2,600 on a ball toss game at the Manchester Carnival trying to win an Xbox Kinect.
When he practiced Gribbohm said it was easy, but something changed when he started playing and the balls kept popping out.
Gribbohm dropped $300 dollars in minutes, going double or nothing to try and win his money back. Then he went home to get $2,300 more, and ended up losing that money too, according to WBZ News.
Gribbohm said he went back the next day to complain and the man running the game gave him back $600. He has since filed a report with the Manchester Police Department, according to WBZ News.
Police told WBZ News they’re investigating to determine if there was any fraud. Gribbohm said he’s considering a lawsuit.
