The trade was:
Driver 2
for his:
Bushido Blade 2

It's been about 90 days since we agreed to this trade(Gametz just canceled it because it had been pending for 90 days frown ). I sent right away, and have been waiting for my game ever since. In his emails, he's said he recieved it, but has never said when, and he's never told me he sent my game, plus he still has Bushido Blade 2 in his available list. 90 days is long enough, so I'm leaving a BTR, until I get either Bushido Blade 2, $15, or Driver 2 back in the SAME MINT CONDITION.

We agreed to trade my Final Fantasy X for his Devil May Cry on October 13th, 2002 and he pended the deal.

Roughly 2 weeks later he said that he got my game but he couldn't send his just yet because of the amount of work he had (business trips). I said that this was fine and for him to keep me updated. Few days later he informed me that he was sending the game. I haven't seen it, yet nor have I heard from him. He hasn't replied to any of my 4 e-mails and he hasn't logged on to since October 14th, 2002. He never completed the trade even though he received my side of the deal.

I don't want to be a part of this trade anymore. I waited long enough. I want my FFX back ASAP.

I'm not calling Evan a thief. I can understand that he was/is extremely occupied with something but he should've thought about that ahead.

I will take this BTR off once I receive my game back.

It seems that the trade with gusto7 (Matt Korte), and myself was a planned one to rip off GameTZ users by Antonio. The trade with Killswitch_Engage (Robert G) was a big one, and I guess Antonio decided to sacrifice his reputation for lots of games.

He used a game he received from the trade with Killswitch_Engage as the bait to rip me off. I sent Diablo as soon as the trade was created, and he was supposed to send Alice at the same time.

Obviously, he didn't send his and that's why I'm reporting this. I hope this kind thing will not happen again to anyone in GameTZ.

Agreed to a trade over a month ago and I sent my things to him which he recieved. he does not respond to any e-mails and has never sent my things. I advise everyone not to trade with him as this is his 2nd BTR. I will take mine down if I ever recieve my games.

Not that it would require this additional BTR to show what a character Eyal is... anyway: he approached me with a trade involving an Ultima I by Sierra, which is one of the scarcer releases out there, and I accepted with alacrity. I immediately sent my stuff (Wrath of Denethenor, Wing Commander II + the speech pack which I threw in as a surprise).

He claims my package never arrived, and that he would have sent his side of the deal on schedule. I have since checked with the postal tracking service that my package *did* arrive. Even when confronted with this, Eyal refused to admit that my package was delivered to him.

He then told me that he would soon be able to offer another copy of Ultima I, as he would find 2-3 of them per year. Which is, by all means, impossible! This was, among other things, what got me very suspicious about him, and his shady practices have since been exposed. (see below for the URLs)

Eyal won't respond to my messages anymore, he appears to ignore all attempts to contact him.

I strongly advise not to trade with this guy, in fact everybody should make sure Eyal will never deal in classic software again.
