I'm filing this BTR and a GameTZ Moderator to alert all the pending trades of jim_sox31. He made 8 pending trades, all with other very new users (something we advise against because of the high risk).

Just now, he asked us to delete his account.

So, that's fairly erratic behavior and we urge you all to be careful dealing with jim_sox31.

Presumably, he now wants to cancel all 8 trades. Or, at the very least, he's confused. Either way, sending him anything seems questionable. Perhaps, he was planning to rip everyone off, then chickened out. Or, maybe he just got in over his head. It's hard to tell.

I'm filing this Bad Trader Report to warn all the pending trades of reegan13.

Please take a look at reegan13's 4 pending trades. They are all for the same game: "Fable: The Lost Chapters". And, in every case reegan13 has convinced each of you to send first.

This situation screams "SCAMMER!"

reegan13 is a new trader with zero reputation here. Please reconsider what you're doing.

[ EDIT - In reaction to your response. That's all words. The fact is, none of us know you. What you're doing is very suspicious. Why do you need 4 copies of the same game? What is the big rush (suck that you can't send first)?

It all sounds like a big story to try to get people to send you stuff without you having to send anything. It's a setup to rip a lot of people off and leave. You may be telling the truth, but other people would be foolish to believe you. They're taking a risk with someone they don't know. Odds are, you're a scammer. We've seen scammers do just what you're doing here in the past. ]

[ You should send first, not these other traders. Anyone sending first to you is taking an unnecessary risk. You have to earn trust here. ]

I'm filing this BTR to let all the people with pending trades with gamergirl1982 that we just discovered that gamergirl1982 lives at the same address as brookjeff (an old account with a BTR and an old pending that looks like it should also be a BTR.

So, it looks pretty clear that brookjeff / gamergirl1982 are scammers.

Hopefully, you didn't send first to them, right? Because we warned you not to send first to account without a reputation and you always listen to our warnings, right?

If you haven't sent, you can probably just cancel the trade. If you have, you may want to call the police in Jasper, TN and file a complaint with them.

I'm filing this BTR on ebaydot because it's an easy way to contact all the people he has pending trades with.

ebaydot has been banned, permanently from GameTZ. In his time here, he's got some BTRs and has a long history of being rude to other traders. I warned him to cool it last month, but recent events have shown he has no intention to change. So, I'm pulling the plug on him to avoid future trouble.

I apologize for any inconvenience this causes to his pendings. There simply is no good time to do this, so it seems best to just bite the bullet and deal with him now. I do plan to work with ebaydot to get his pending trades completed. He's got 14 at the moment! He can email GameTZ moderators, to give us updates on the trades to let us know when he sent/received. We can edit his pending trades to reflect this. From your point of view, you can use the trade report as normal. Though, keep in mind that ebaydot has not access to GameTZ. So, if you need to contact him, we suggest email or other means.

In cases where neither you nor him has sent, it may be best to simply cancel the trade. A lot of people have had trouble trading with him, so we recommend this. But, it is up to you and ebaydot. If you'd like us to cancel your pending trade with him, please email the moderators.

[ Update: 01/01/2009 - ebaydot made a new account (OooooTFC) and has made some trades along with carrying a lot of pending trades. I'm not sure what we're going to do about it, but I've merged the old ebaydot account into this OooooTFC as a start. Note, the past BTRs, and big old pending trades.... traders beware.. -bill ]
