So sad when a good trader goes bad. Ok here is my story. I came home one day to find an email from Joe. Saying he has some NES boxes and manual I need and one game. So we get two talking, strike a deal and decide to send at the same time. HE doesn't have a scanner so he can't send me a picture of items unless he sends to friends house, has them scan and the sent back to him. I look at feedback and decided to trust him. I send my part out $40 money order and complete Trolls on Treasure Island. I still have receipt for postal money order and delivery confirmation. So a week later I'm still waiting for my items. Email him tells me there was a death on wife's side of family and has not had time to send. Ok tell him that's ok sorry for his lost. 2 weeks go by now they are lost in mail. Didn't have money for 55-cent delivery confirmation but did have $1.30 to insure it. Asked him to scan postal receipt and insurance slip so I can see, again was told no scanner cant send pictures. Told me he didn't have a chance to cash money order to use that money to ship with. Hmmm.... Postal money order, seem easy enough to two cash at post office. I was going to wait a few more days to file this but I can see now the lies are growing. I will keep this up until I get my money and game back. Or my items he promised in trade.
6/27/03 I have now filed a mail fruad report. I hope others will do the same. Maybe then he will come thruogh on some of these Trades.
6/27/03 I have looked up the local police department. Alexis Police Dept

This will be my next step if items are not recived by 7/5/03
7/4/03 OK I have not heard anything for Joe, No attempt to make good. I will be calling his local police department Monday. I will file a theft report, Then I will forward the officers name in charge to everyone that has left BTR so we can combine our efforts in this matter. I will be on vacation next week. Just taking sometime off, I'm not going anywhere so I will have alot of time to work on this. I'm make it my pet project for the week.
7/7/03 OK no answer at local police department. I did find number to local sheriff that will be paying a visit to Joe sometime today. Seems the Sheriff already knows who he is, Good thing or bad thing? I'll bet on bad. I have emailed everyone that has a BTR up here with info. I will also let everyone know what the sheriff says when he calls me back today. The phone # to sheriff is 1-903-582-5194 if you want it. I put it in everyones email also.
