On Feb 10th a trade/loan was established for me to provide $150 in PayPal funds to MajorGimp, with repayment to be completed 3 months later on May 15th as well as the game Super Paper Mario to be received as payment/interest for the loan.
Funds were sent on Feb 12th.
May 8th I started communication to see about receiving repayment when due, was told it might be a few days late, but would be repaid in full.
May 16th was told he lost 1 of 2 jobs and he requested more time, I had no issue, he agreed to send Paper Mario which I received June 2nd.
June 10th I was told he now had lost his 2nd job.
June 13th received $20, told I'd get more soon and that he had found a new job.
July 23rd given an excuse about medical issues.
Two games, totaling $19 were agreed upon as additional repayment, they were sent and received around mid-August, repayment amount stands at $111, more funds promised but not received.
Sept 27th promised some more funds on Oct 14th, not received.
Oct 20th excuse given for no funds.
Nov 11th last communication telling of a new job and promised 100% funds on Nov 28th, not received.
Dec 5th and 16th I requested updates, was ignored.
After talking to another of his lenders and Bill I decided to consider a BTR.
Dec 29th I messaged him stating that I hadn't heard anything in 7 weeks, was tired of excuses and no communication. Stated that I would file a BTR if I didn't receive any communication by Jan 5th.
No responses while he has had activity on the site since Dec 29th.

I have told him that I'm not in a hurry to get my remaining funds back and I'm still not but understandably I feel like I may not get any more funds. I am willing to accept some form of repayment plan and had suggested one before, I however want/need some reassurance that the plan will be honored since I was told that I would get funds several times and did not. I am not interested in any more games as repayment but would take as little as $5/week, $10/bi-weekly, $20/monthly. I'd simply like to get my funds back that have been loaned out for nearly 11 months.

I didn't want to file this be feel like I'm being ignored. Based on his other recent completed and pending trades I'm also upset that I've not been paid back.

Update, on April 10th he contacted me saying he was getting some tax money back and would resolve our loan, asking for the exact amount. I provided and haven't heard a thing since April 25th.
