Let me tell you something, I've been here long enough to know when someone is being deceitful and immoral. Those are things you learn in life and through dealing with people who are honest...and who aren't.
You offered that mystery box with the intention of putting those specific items in there. You would not tell anyone what was in it, even me when I said per the thread guidelines, I want to know if people are getting a good deal. If I have to, I will post our entire conversation here. That mystery box situation...that was your INTENT. You INTENDED on giving those items away at the cost. You CLEARLY know game values, you repeatedly send me trade offers that are half-assed... you would not tell me what was in the mystery boxes. As an example, you stated:
"I don't appreciate the change in rules simply because it's me and not someone else, there have been a handful of mystery boxes already and this hasn't come up. I will let you know that friction got my last $100 mystery box and he's getting between $120 - $160 worth of stuff. I think it really kills the fun element to know that info and just plays into ppl who are looking to resell as opposed to collector's getting a good deal to enhance their collection, but if you feel it's necessary to share that tidbit then so be it. My current steals will fall into that same range" - $120-160 huh?
Another reason why I feel you have ill intent...
(Remember our discussion per your offer of my Gunstar Heroes and Mazin Mutant Saga (complete, great shape) for your cart only Chrono Trigger and $20?)
"Right now they're around $80, few months ago they were around $60, either way we both know you get the point (at least I hope anyway lol). I have been doing this a long time and am not looking for validation, if you really think you'll be able to use these 2 games in a trade for a CIB chrono, even with other games, then I wish you the best of luck. Personally, I'd be surprised (not as surprised for gunstar but most people don't even know what mazin is) if you could include 1 of these in a trade for chrono cart only, but that's just me basing it off the differences between the Nintendo market and the everything else market."
After I mentioned I would trade both of the games towards a CIB Chrono Trigger? after you wanted BOTH of them for your CART ONLY Chrono Trigger and $20 dollars? Why would you be surprised at what someone else would trade?
but WAIT! There's more...
"BostonItalian88 -- Offer Declined
You think it's easy to find people who are looking to trade a $250 item for a bunch of $60 items? What market are you in bro? Not sassing what you're looking for but you gotta be real, all the people that post say "Have Chrono CIB, looking for rare SNES or NES titles of equal value". I hope you end up with what you're looking for but it's going to be real tough to accomplish"
I rest my case regarding your inability to understand true trade values and you only care about your items... that you think are gold I may add...
Anywho, back to the matter at hand here...
You knew what was going into the bundle you sent @FrictionPin. Pricecharting is a guide, it does NOT mean your items are worth that amount. Why else would I mention to check ALL of your resources before you offer a steal? Because people will go on places like that, and think "My item is worth $100!"... Do the research. You clearly used the mystery box guise as an excuse to get rid of these items and pocket $100. You wouldn't offer a refund or even consider it after it was asked of you. Why would you DENY someone a refund if they're not happy with what you have to offer? You tarnished your image on this website (and possibly other websites too, because I know that FrictionPin is apart of a LOT of different groups...) all over $100. Your ratings got bombed and you have a history of describing your games less than the quality that they are in order to get a deal... honestly, you are only about the buck. You don't care about the community -- only about yourself.
Even after FrictionPin asked for a refund you stated: "If you still decide to send it back that's on you, I won't be using money to send it back to you."
After this fiasco, you're not allowed to participate in the future, we WON'T be trading again, and I wouldn't be surprised if more people followed suit.
