On September 10, I agreed to sell my N64 and ten games to Jonathan for $105. He asked that I send first, due to him having two gold stars, and me having a silver. Due to his generally excellent feedback, I agreed. I shipped the items to him the next day, with USPS delivery confirmation. He told me that he would let me know when he received the package, and would send payment immediately.
As of September 18, I had not heard from Jonathan, so I checked the USPS tracking info, and found that the package had been delivered on September 15. I e-mailed Jonathan to get verification that he had in fact received the items. On September 20, he replied that he had received the items, and that he had sent payment that day.
Yesterday, September 23, Jonathan deleted the pending trade, with no explanation by e-mail. I can't imagine any other reason for him to cancel it without also contacting me with an explanation, except that he did not in fact send payment, and intends to steal the items. I have e-mailed him, asking him to contact me immediately and verify that he did actually send payment. I also saw that he had another BTR filed on him, with circumstances similar to mine.
I hope this is a misunderstanding, and that Jonathan will contact me to clear this up, and that he will either send payment, if he hasn't already done so, or at least will return my items. However, his lack of communication is a red flag that something isn't right. I will remove this BTR once I receive either the agreed upon payment amount, or when he has returned my items to me.UPDATE 9/24/03
: An e-mail reply from a moderator informed me that Jonathan had cancelled all four pending trades he had ongoing last night, 9/23. He also tried to have his GameTZ account deleted. However, the moderators did not delete his account, and have reinstated Jonathan's pending trades. I haven't heard from him at this point.
