I sent him Police quest collection in exchange for his Zork Nemesis. It's been about two and a half weeks since he said he got my game and I still haven't received Nemesis. He will not reply to my emails so a word of warning to other traders: stay away from him.

Immediately after sending my game to him, I received three obscene emails out-of-the-blue and in reply to my incredulity that were later claimed not to have been sent by the trader (but no explanation of how that could have occurred). Then, an email finally informed me that his package had been returned because it was improperly addressed to me, and could I please verify the address, which was not very close to reality despite appearing in full and correctly on several of my emails. A couple of weeks later, I again demanded a status update or I would endeavor to have the trader barred from UGTZ and reported for mail fraud. I then received a reply email from him saying he had lost his job and that he couldn't cough up the couple bucks postage just yet. Four trades are reported as successful with him, yet email confirmation with other traders reveals an actual 50% success rate - the other two (including mine) were incorrectly and prematurely reported as successful upon our mailing our packages, and then the trader in question merely responded as though he had done his part as well. Should both myself and the other unsuccessful trader receive our promised games in trade, I will remove this post. After all, maybe his life is in shambles and things have been tough. Maybe he can work things out. BUT, until then, be FOREWARNED!

He ripped me off I agread to trade EF2000 for Tomb Raider 2 then I sent EF2000 and never got Tomb Raider 2 for it. I am surprised that he actualy has a confermed trade.

Marc and I agreed in early September to trade Unreal for Starcraft. I sent Unreal to him the next day, but he never sent Starcraft. I followed up with a number of emails. He responded to only one of these emails, and in his response he acknowledged receiving Unreal. His excuse for not sending Starcraft was that someone in his family had died!! Maybe he was telling the truth, I don't know. All I do know is that I still haven't received Starcraft, and he hasn't responded to the last couple emails I have sent. I hope this is all just a misunderstanding, in which case I will be happy to delete this report. But in the meantime don't trade with this guy.

Ouch, another Brad ripoff. I feel lucky that I only got taken for one older game. We were supposed to send on 9/4/98. I got called out of town on business and didn't get a chance to send the game. When I came back, no game had arrived so, I sent another email on 9/16 asking if he still wanted to trade. He did and we agreed to send the next day. I sent on 9/17 and I have yet to receive his game. He doesn't answer my emails. Guess, after reading bad traders list, I'll email his mother. Seems like this boy thought he found a gold mine.
