Details on the exact dates are a bit fuzzy, but it was sometime in late 1998 or early 1999.
Essentially, we agreed to trade my Virtual Boy for his Contra Hard Corps plus $15.
Virtual Boys at the time were being clearanced for $30 at places like best buy and EB so I figured it was a fair trade.
Well we both said we sent, and he got my stuff in a couple days and thanked me. After a week had gone by without me receiving anything I contacted him to let him know his stuff hadn't arrived and asked if he had a delivery confirmation number or something.
He said he had no DC, but to give it a few more days, and he'd send another copy of the game if I didn't get it. This set off some red flags, right there, but as he already had my stuff there wasn't really anything I could do.
Anyway, after a few more days I reminded him and he said he'd send another copy of the game out. Never heard from him again - he stopped responding to my emails and that was that.
He was a kid at the time, so I couldn't pursue any legal action. Anyway, you probably already know this from the other BTRs that have been filed on this guy, but it's probably a bad idea to trade with him.
A word to the wise - he may currently be living in Simi Valley. A myspace search for "Brad Lowenberg" turned up just one result... http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=us...
He's about the right age, and Simi Valley isn't such a stretch for someone like him.
