Maureen,

I keep receiving notices that I have a trade pended with a Bad Trader, and this trader is you.

I must admit: I can't help but agree with the other traders.

I used all the patience I had. I sent the 6 games I promised in a box, 4 months ago. I have yet to see the 5 games YOU promised, since they were still listed on your page 2 weeks ago (!!!), before you deleted your listings.

You told me your own package was returned to you since some items were "for US sale only" and blocked by the customs. I often buy from US online stores and receive these kind of games. And out of my 280+ trades, it simply never happened. Plus, note that we're not selling/buying, we're TRADING.

Then you told me you'd figure a way to get them to me somehow. I have yet to see this.

Then, one month later, after 2 unanswered e-mails, I re-contacted you, and then you did not even remember me, confusing me with someone else. Maureen, the "pending trade" section is supposed to be there for something...

I gave you a 2 week ultimatum, and I demanded dayly updates last week. I never heard from you ever since.

Many of the messages I sent were left unanswered. Too many. Why have you never posted any messages in our trade report, why have you not reported the reception of my part of the trade?

I consider myself an experienced, tolerant and patient GTZ user, and to tell the truth, I have never seen anything as bad as this, since there are so many traders in my position.

Like everyone else, I'm willing to remove this report should the games you owe me arrive here.

To think you were supposed to send first, and to think I finally sent first thinking you were trustworthy...


14/10/2004 NOTE:

I discovered something interesting tonight. You traded away my Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King even if I still don't have the games you owe me, speaking of wich.... you also traded 2 Elder's Scrolls Legend: Battlespire, while I still wait for the one you owe me... I hope you have the habit of keeping at least 3 original copies of the very same game, for you'll have a really hard time completing our trade...

It all started back in January when Nathan and I decided to trade together.

I was offering LOTS of games for a rare and costly compilation: the Exile
Trilogy. It costs 45 US$ at their web sites. So I offered Cutthroats, Arcatera, Fallout, Baldur's Gate, Prince of Qin, Rage of Mages 1+2 and Tzar.

They were original CDs only, no box and no manuals, in fair-to good condition.

I asked him to send his part of the trade first, considering he had no stars and only 8 trades done.

4 weeks later, I had not heard from him ever since we agreeded on the deal.

So I asked him if the Trilogy was sent. He replied that he was afraid of
being ripped off, and so on...

So I offered to send all the games first except Prince of Qin and Baldur's Gate, wich I would ship when his game would arrive. He agreeded...

If I remember well, I sent them 5 or maybe 6 weeks ago. 2 weeks ago I've
sent an e-mail inquiring about what was going on. Last week I've sent
a second one telling him that if I had no news from him by Friday, he'd
get a bad trader report.

Well, here we are.

All in all, Nathan's only a filthy liar who played the worrying guy to rip
me off. It's the second time I'm ripped off in over 80 trades, the other
one was at my beginning with the GTZ.

I guess I forgot that there were still these kind of thieves around. I shouldn't have agreeded to send anything first. A very bad mistake.


You've been warned! Dealing with Nathan means dealing with lies!

It's been a while since it began, 3 months approximatively, but then
I wasnt too sure if Justin still had an internet account at all for he did not reply any of the 3 messages I sent, and his GTZ page
wasnt changing... But yesterday I found his page, and he upgrated it recently. I sent Dungeon and Dragons Silver Archieves, plus Druid Daemons of the Mind and The Summoning. I was supposed to receive Nox and Blade Runner. Guess what? I received nothing. No games, no explanation, nothing at all. Please consider this message before trading with Justin, he's a liar and a thief.
