This Bad Trader Report is being filed by GameTZ Moderators in order to warn all the pending trades of "tt22".

In one day, tt22 has pended 9 trades. Many of the trades are with other new traders. In several cases, he is trying to get the other trader to send first to him. For the two trades where he reported that he has sent, he was suppose to use Delivery Confirmation, but did not provide a DC#.

We've heard that he may have claimed the reputation on an ebay account was his, but that account is in another state and likely is not him.

tt22 has no reputation here, no completed trades or rating. No one should be sending first to him or even at the same time.

tt22's behavior is very suspicious, so we wanted to warn all of his pendings to be careful. As long as he sends first (you get his side of the trade before you send your side), you're protected, so that's safe. But, otherwise, you're taking a big risk.

If you're another new trader, we recommend that you only trade with traders who have a reputation (look for a star next to their username, at least 10 trades, excellent ratings, etc.). Trading with other new traders is very risky. When you signed up here, we made you take a Trader's Oath that mentioned this. We've seen too many cases like this turn into a lot of people getting ripped off.

This BTR is being filed by a GameTZ moderator to warn all the pending trades of "plains_mt". plains_mt is a new account created by Carl Crystal, who has multiple BTRs on his old account (Carl).

It looks like we caught this in time and no one has sent. So, these new pendings with plains_mt can simple be canceled.

Whatever you do, don't send first to plains_mt ...

This BTR is being filed to warn all of LakeErieCards pending trades that she is a scammer.

We have just discovered that the LakeErieCards account is the same person who has made several account here over the years and ripped a number of people off. The person uses many aliases, but we know her (?not sure if she's a female even) primarily as Rachel
Sergent.

See her her other account (with BTR) here: http://gametz.com/user/Rachel.html

We will be suspending this account permanently in a few minutes. We recommend that you cancel your trade with her. At the very least, under no circumstances, send anything to her until you get your side of the deal. She is not to be trusted.

The LakeErieCards account will not be reactivated, she is permanently banned from GameTZ.

This BTR is being filed by a GameTZ moderator in order to warn all of madrich's pending trades (plus anyone else who might consider agreeing to a trade with him in the future). madrich has 5 pending trades from around October 10th. For all of them, he reported that he has sent his side. But, that was 17 days ago and no one has received anything from him. So, clearly he lied about sending to all 5 people.

We're concerned that his objective is to rip everyone off and never send anything to anyone.

I'm filing this BTR on behalf of gchiri.

gchiri got banned from GameTZ due to a series of bad behaviors (threatening other traders, creating and using multiple accounts, etc.) Carl was the person who got threatened. At the time gchiri was banned, Carl and gchiri had 2 pending trades. The trades involved a lot of games (bundles). gchiri had already sent his side with both pending trades, Carl had not.

Suspiciously, Carl canceled both of these pending trades. Weeks later gchiri complained to the moderators of GameTZ that Carl never sent what he owed him. We looked into it and found that Carl had canceled the trades. We asked Carl about it and he said he had sent his side of the trades. He said he'd used delivery confirmation as well. When we asked for the DC#, he said he threw it away when he verified the the packages were delivered. When we suggested that he check his web browser's history to retrieve the number, he said that he had just replaced his hard-drive. We find Carl's story hard to believe.. We don't believe Carl has sent what he owes to gchiri.

For the last few weeks, we pressed them both to resolve this. Eventually, Carl agreed to send what he owed to gchiri. However, before gchiri was able to take possession of the package that Carl sent, Carl recalled the package. Carl says this was done because of an insult gchiri made.

We feel enough is enough. This had gone on too long and Carl's behavior is unacceptable. So, we're not placing this BTR on Carl's account. Carl has had many BTRs in the past as well.

Carl - stop screwing around. Send gchiri what you owe him.
