We agreed to trade Planescape: Torment PC and Blood Omen 2 Xbox for UFC:Tapout Xbox. It's been a month since I sent, 3 weeks since he confirmed that he had recieved, and I have not recieved anything in return. He has told me at least 3 times that he is 'sending today' or 'just sent yesterday'. During most of this time, his account has been suspended due to his misbehavior in chat. Last week he stopped responding to my emails, so he gets a BTR until I learn more. -blackman
I had deleted the trade when I filed the BTR to get it off my list. I sent an email on 5/28 requesting status just trying to wrap up the BTR, and he actually replied this time. He said that he had not sent due to the fact that I had deleted the pending trade (which I did 2 months after the trade had originally been pended.) He said I should repend the trade and he would send me UFC Tapout. Email follows:________

Uhh you canceled the trade...If you want your stuff repend it and then give me your address ______
So I repend the trade and email him my address. That was on 5/30. It is now 6/16 and no additional emails nor have I recieved the game. Richard is the worst trader I have ever dealt with.
I have been more than fair. After another email went unanswered since 6/20, I have decided to take action. I have tried on several occasions to talk to Mr. Mallory privately in chat, which has always resulted in him logging off. Today, I filed both a fraud complaint with the USPS as well as initiating contact with the Cleveland PD. I don't know if it's going to help, but it's worth a try. Richard, if you even pay attention to these, please send me back my stuff. I am no longer interested in trading for UFC: Tapout, I want my Blood Omen 2 and Planescape: Torment back in the condition you recieved them. I know you still have them, as they are listed as available on your trading page.

Hello this is Hyabusa (captainstankm) and i am tired of looking at my btr..I
want to lose it and I would like for you to help me.I would like to work out
our problem.But there is another problem.UFC is gone and I tried to sell
Blood Omen 2 (but I got ripped off) and send you the cash so that I could
cover the game prices or just go back out and buy another one..Well if you
could email me back lmk thankz bye.
p.s i am sorry for the trouble i have caused
I replied that only money or games from my wanted list would make me happy enough to remove this BTR.
I recieved another email from Rick a few weeks ago, once again asking me what needs to happen to clear up this BTR. On principal, I'm refusing now to accept the nearly 2 year old game that we originally agreed on, not that he offered to send them to me. It is obvious that Rick wants me to just forget about the whole deal and drop the BTR, which I am absolutely not going to do.
I will remove this BTR when I recieve the then-value of the brand new $50 Blood Omen that was less than 2 weeks old when he stole it, as well as the then price of about $10 for Planescape Torment. I will not remove this BTR for even one penny less than $60 paid by cash or cashiers check, considering Rick's history of retracting paypal payments 2 months after the fact.
Rick, don't even bother emailing me again about this. If you want the BTR down, mail me a MO or cash worth $60. I will never forget this, I will never get over it, and I will never remove the BTR until I get what I am owed, and at this point that is not a 2 year old copy of UFC Tapout that you lied to me about, nor is it a 2 year old copy of the games I sent you as they are now worthless as well.
