I sent Steven a Genesis system/games package on April 5, which he received on April 7.
Since then, he has given conflicting stories on when (April 6, April 15, and April 21) he sent
or would be sending his end of the trade (a couple of Gamecube games).

He hasn't responded to any emails since April 21.

I have all of the information needed to file a postal fraud report, which I plan on
doing, unless this trade is resolved to my satisfaction.

I sent David payment in June.

As of December 11, 2003, I haven't received any items or a refund. Supposedly, David Thompson
works at a Gamestop in Minnesota (probably the one in St. Cloud); if you see him, tell him to clean
up his Bad Trader Reports on GameTZ. frown

In September of 2001, Sean agreed to sell me a top-loading Nintendo package with games. I sent out payment in early September; I have not received anything to date. Sean replied to some of my earlier emails (he admitted that the package was sent back to him, and that he was going to reship it to me or send a refund), but no longer responds to emails sent to any of the above addresses.

The above postal address was his old mailing address; I believe he is now living in Crestview, Florida, so be cautious when dealing with any 'Sean Fosters' in either of these areas.

Update - I've filed a complaint with the Internet Fraud Complaint Center (http://www.ifccfbi.gov/). I've also discovered that Sean Foster is using the alias Alex Foster in a couple of recent Usenet postings dated August 28, 2002, along with a new email address.

Another update: Apparently this bad trader is back in the Baltimore MD area.

I sent payment for a couple of items William had listed on his GameTZ page. Over two months have gone by, and I still haven't received my end of the deal. William hasn't responded to any emails I have sent since January 25, even though he has logged into GameTZ as recently as March 9.

This bad trader report will be removed once I receive my end of the deal, or a refund. In the meantime, this message will serve as a warning to anyone thinking about dealing with William Follis.
