Trade was agreed upon on 5/31/07. I sent out my side of the deal first the following day - 6/1/07, tracking number included. Item was delivered on 6/4/07, lexicon acknowledged he received the package on 6/5/07.

After a week passed with no further action regarding him sending his part of the bargain, I sent a notice inquiring about it (6/11/07). He responded the next day saying he forgot, and that he would ship it ASAP express. Another week passed with no notice from him, so I sent yet another inquiry (6/18/07).

The next day he said he would send, yet again. On 6/21/07 he posted that he sent the package, yet listed no tracking number for it. On 6/26/07 I inquired a third and final time about it, and have yet to get any response whatsoever. It is now almost 1 month since he received my game.

On May 22nd, FFXNo1 and I agreed to a trade. The trade was my F.E.A.R. (PS3) in exchange for a $40 Postal M.O. I sent on the 25th of May and he recieved on the 30th of May. He claims he sent the same day he received. Since then I haven't gotten my money order. On June 8th I asked for details of the money order. The trader told me that he didn't send a money order, that in fact he sent some game instead. So I asked when I was gonna get my money. He told me I will get it once I sent the game back. I told him I wasn't going to wait due to a mistake HE made. That wasn't fair and he wanted me to pay for return shipping. So I asked for the DC# to atleast see where this game was. He exclaimed that he didnt pay for DC even though we agreed on it originally in our trade.

Once I told him I would be filing a BTR, he just threatened to file on me. He has made no attempt to remedy this situation and I'm am tired of dealing with him
I am the one out a game and I am still waiting...

So Now I'm here, no PS3 game and still no money order. I cannot prove he sent a game nor can I prove he sent one to me. He says he has a slip saying he sent something. So Unless I get my money order or my game is returned to me, this BTR will stay up.

First of all I tried to work something out. I thought I was dealing with a honest trader, but I think I was wrong. For you actions and lack of interest to resolve this problem, I'm certain that you are a child. I never told you that I wanted you to pay for shipping the game back and you never asked me to pay for the shipping. I told you that I wanted the game back and then I send you the M.O. But it seems that you want to rip me off and keep the God Father. I send two packages (from two trades) one got to its destination and the other one you decided to keep and claim that you never got it.

I send you the God Father because you send me this in my post:

My trade and your post

Godfather for my FEAR? If so, send offer.

You were the one who offered FEAR for The God Father after I offered you the $40 for the FEAR.

Your post and my offer

I can do it, send me the offer. I'll send you a money order.

As you can see I got confused because you offered your FEAR for The God Father after. The slip you called is called a RECEIPT from the post office, this proves that I send the game. If you want I can send you the receipt. I'm going to post office today and see if if I can prove you already got the game. They must have a record from that package I send and hopefully this stupid moderators do something about this.

I'll pay for all the expenses and I'll send you back your game. I don't have any interest of dealing with you. I might keep this BTR, but I wont let a dishonest trader get away with this fraud.

Near the middle of March I sent out my PSP to him for my part of the trade. He was supposed to send me 90$ dollars, but It's been nearly three months after sending him my item, and he has not replied to any messages and emails I sent him. I didn't want to send this report, but nothing else seems to work, and I am using this as a last resort. I hope the situation can be straightened out in which case I'll remove this report.

Very similar to the situation Weissvulf described. The deal was made on April 6th. I was to send a Mac copy of Star Trek: Elite Force 2 and he would pay me $8. But I was to send first. This was the second time I had dealt with him, so I didn't have any problem shipping first. I sent, he has never marked as received, nor has he contacted me. I have sent repeated emails hoping to finish this deal out.

I hate to have to add the BTR, but there doesn't seem to be any other option. I hope nothing serious has happened to him, and maybe this situation can be sorted out.

A lot like my explanation before. I am truly sorry for the delay, but I did get your money out to you already. Please check your paypal account. I understand you waited long enough as it is without any communication from me, so I don't mind you putting it up. Completely my fault.
