I made a trade with Matthew a couple weeks ago, subtime for his 8mile DVD. Since he was new I advanced him 1 week to get started on the site and use the other features. Since then I have not heard from him once, he has not logged into his account, and won't reply to emails.
BTR will come down when/if I recieve the DVD (and the remaining about of subtime will be transferred to him.) or if he comes back, subscribes and sends me my week back.

Andre contacted me in the non subscriber forum about a month ago. I was going to trade him 12 weeks of subscription time for 3 VHS movies (Bean, Swordfish and The Messenger.)
Because he was new, and had no subtime, I gave him his first week, so he can gain access to the rest of the site, and make some more trades.
Since then, I have not heard a WORD from him. I have emailed him many many times, asked him in the chat (without a reply) if he sent the movies.
I know in this case, I lost very little, but he has about 20 pended trades, some of them very large. I just feel he is a newbie, on here, wasting time, and was looking to get subscription time, and games for free.

Andre, GameTZ is an awesome site. It is the best trading site you will find. Don't blow it away by ripping and getting bad trader reports.
I will remove this if I get the movies (I very much would like to complete the trade and get them.) Or if I get the week of subtime back.
What I lost, isn't even worth a $1, but maybe this report will save someone else, especially another new user who feels they must send first, because THEY are the new people, and spare them the opportunity of getting ripped off.
