This BTR is being filed to warn the pending trades of gorf888. We have some evidence that indicates gorf888 is a new account for the person who had used the mdauphin account. mdauphin had received 15 BTRs in the past, with 8 remaining still unresolved.

We've suspended the gorf888 account, because we do not want any further chance of people getting ripped off. We're concerned that gorf888's current old pendings may be situations that will lead to BTRs being filed.

gorf888's is a different name than mdauphin, but location and similarities in behavior lead us to believe it's the same person. And, because the situation was mdauphin go to be such a mess, we feel we must act now to prevent further people from getting ripped off.

Reporter: bill

I'm filing this BTR because I just discovered that Eric Escalante has had (at least) 2 other accounts here at GameTZ:

e2the2nd - 2 BTR from September 2004

FaSheezyNeezyYaHeezy - 2 BTRs from 2001

So, clearly, he's a big-time scammer who has come back to GameTZ repeatedly to rip people off.

If you are one of the people he ripped of recently, we recommend that you call the police where he lives and file a criminal complaint against him. Get in contact with the other people he ripped off and coordinate (call the same police detective to each file your complaint, etc.)

Reporter: bill

This BTR is being filed by GameTZ Moderators to warn all the pending trades of thusgaming.

thusgaming is another account made by Gamerchic01 (an account that currently has 4 unresolved Bad Trader Reports on it). There are other accounts as well. It seems likely that this person is out to scam people, given the history and circumstances.

We will be suspending and banning all of the accounts this person is using. Currently, we know of these: gameaddict2552, Gamerchic01, gameaddict, and thusgaming There may be more.

If no one has sent in your pending trade, we recommend that you just cancel the trade. If you're unsure, read the BTRs on the Gamerchic01 account.

This BTR is being filed by GameTZ Moderators to warn ppdvds' pending trades and anyone else who might consider trading with him.

We've received information that ppdvds has ripped people off at other sites on the Internet:

http://boards.ign.com/user_feedback_board/b5331/41...

http://forum.dvdtalk.com/showthread.php?t=214797

We also have reports from another GameTZ user that he was ripped off by ppdvds elsewhere, as well.

It looks like, so far, everyone has been careful and made sure ppdvds sends first. ppdvds has completed trades here at GameTZ. But, we recommend that no one send first to him considering his reputation.
