We both participated in the Retro Virtual Box on the GameTZ forums. The way the box works is that everyone participating puts in at least one game, and whoever's turn it is to pick, chooses a game. They pend a trade with the owner of the game they picked, and then the owner mails the game to them. That second person then gets next pick of games in the box. The thread can be found here:

When it was my turn to pick, I chose a discs-only copy of Resident Evil 0 for Gamecube from Dixiedead. He pended the trade with me on May 7, and then picked his next game from someone else and the box continued.

He marked the trade as "sent" on May 9, but didn't include any tracking information even though I specified Delivery Confirmation in the trade agreement. I figured it wasn't worth asking for tracking info at the time, since he'd never had any trade issues that I could see, and other folks seemed to be getting their stuff from him in the virtual box.

By May 22 I started to get a bit concerned, so I added a message to the trade asking if he had any other info, like a tracking number. I didn't hear back.

On June 8, I sent a PM to Dixiedead asking again for any information he could give me on this item. No response.

I saw that he hadn't logged in for a while, so I continued to wait. He logged in on June 20, so on June 21, I added another message to the trade hoping that he'd returned to the site and would get back to me. He didn't.

On June 26, I sent a message to Bill asking if a BTR would be an appropriate recourse here, and he agreed to send an email directly to Dixiedead in the hopes of getting a response. I said that I would wait for a week or so before filing a BTR.

I've been busy with other stuff, so haven't been around GTZ much lately, but now it's been nearly a month since that email went out, and about 2.5 months since Dixiedead said he sent out the package. I understand that stuff happens, but at the very least some kind of response would have been nice.

In order to resolve this BTR I would like either a copy of Resident Evil 0 for Gamecube or $10 via PayPal, the approximate value of said game (and the approximate value of the game I sent to another trader in the trade box in order to get this pick).

There's not much to describe....I sent out LA Noire (PS3) in exchange for The Last of Us(PS3), and never got my game. My Tracking Number confirmed that LA Noire was delivered on June 5, 2014. As of June 19th, I have yet to receive anything.

The trade in its entirety may be viewed here:

Trade: Loan for $275, repayment of $315 by April 15th
Loan Purpose: To Pay for School Books
This member was given a Loan in December of 2013 that was supposed to be repaid in two payments 15Jan14- $158 & 15Apr14- $157. The member states in January he was having issues with financial aide from school and could only send $50 at the time. February 4th he sent another $20. On February 15th he sent a message saying his father passed and he was going to have to buy a plane ticket and would try and sell his xbox to cover the costs.
On Aprile 4th he sent me this message: "I have an issue with my Paypal because of a user reversing charges on me, so now my account is $450 in the hole. I'm trying to get it situated, is there another form of payment I can pay you in, in case it takes forever to get situated?"
I told him a amazon gift card would be fine but I would prefer Amazon Payments. Right around this time is when he stopped coming on the site.
He stated he sent a money order on May 1st then 3 weeks later i told him that i did not receive it, he said he went to the money gram place and they were able to tell I did not cash it but he would still need to file a claim.
He kept in contact via text messages for awhile until about 2 weeks ago when he stopped returning my messages.
If anyone would not mind helping me contact him via phone or text it would be greatly appreciated. I know he is getting my text messages and ignoring my phone calls because when i call sometimes it rings 5 times before going to voice mail and sometimes it rings twice so he is hitting the ignore button.
At this time there is $245 remaining on the loan.
