We agreed to the following trade: My XBOX system with DVD Remote, NightCaster and Elder Scrolls 3, as well as a demo disc for his Grand Theft Auto 3, Grandia 2, Tony Hawk 3, Onimusha, various complete psx games, 3 anime DVDs and $100 US.

I sent first. He received it and then sent my items. He told me that he didn't have the $100 dollars to send because of a family emergency and that he would compensate by throwing in some items. I received his package. It contained the items to compensate for the $100, as well as most other items excluding grand theft auto 3 and the cases/manuals to the psx games.

It has been 2 months and I haven't received my $100 OR grand theft auto 3 and the cases/manuals. The cases/manuals I could do without but grand theft auto 3 and the $100 were the two most valuable items in the package and the sole reason I would have agreed to the trade in the first place.

We communicated through hotmail and msn messenger fairly regularly throughout the first 3 weeks of our trade and then he started claiming that he wasn't receiving my hotmail messages as well as ignoring me on msn messenger. Once in a while he would contact me with an excuse of why he hasn't been able to ship my stuff as well as a promise to do so. I still haven't received my items.

He has been trading on this site during the whole ordeal as well as listing my stuff in his available list. He has made no attempts to contact me in almost a month.

This Bad Trader Report will stay up until I receive my $100 US, Grand Theft Auto 3 as well as the cases and manuals to the various psx games. I advise that nobody trade with this user because he obviously has no problem ripping people off if they're halfway across the continent.

Josh , if you didn't receive my e-mail a few days ago, it states that I will be pressing charges against you if you don't follow through with your end of the trade agreement.
