I sent out my half of the trade a month and a half ago. After repeated emails, he still said he would send my item out, but he never did. I've given up at this point. Nothing should ever take this long.

I sent: Digimon (Wonderswan B&W)

What I was supposed to receive: Samurai Shodown 2 (NeoGeo Pocket Color)

I set up a trade with Rob back on August 28, 2002. The original deal was for me to send Final Fantasy X and Dark Cloud to him for Lunar Silver Star Story Complete and Silent Hill. I sent my games first, being the newer member, and he received them. He then claimed to have sent them but they "must have gotten lost in the mail." Instead of straight up reporting him I emailed him about it. After getting out some initial frustration with an email that was admittadly angry we came to the agreement that he would get enw copies of both games and send them to me. I didn't believe he needed to get "new" copies to send to me, but I went along with it because I just wanted to play the games and didn't really care how. After a couple months he finally claimed to have gotten new copies of each. He said he'd be sending them a few days later. This was weeks ago, much longer than it should take for them to have gotten here. Not only do I believe that he lied about sending them initially, but I feel he strung me along, lying about getting new copies, then lied again about sending them. Something like this was abviously really disheartening. I just wanted to relax and play a new game and instead got ripped off and had to deal with it for what is coming up on four months. I would STRONGLY urge anybody reading this to steer clear of trading with this person.

On August 11, 2002 we entered into a trade agreement, where she was to send Zak McKracken, Jazz and Faust, Dememtia and Discworld Noir to me, and I was to send Touche, Kama Sutra, Chewy-Escape from F-5 and Jack Orlando to her. I sent the games on 8/17, and delivery confirmation shows receipt on 8/19. When I did not receive her games I emailed her (date unrecalled) and she responded on 8/26 that she had been in the hospital, and the games were boxed up but had not been shipped. I let quite a bit of time go by due to her illness, but did email her several times between that date and 11/8, asking her where my games were. On 11/8 I received an email, allegedly from Cheryl's son David, advising that his mother Cheryl was in a nursing home, and he was taking care of the transactions regarding games for his mother, as she could no longer play the games or handle the trades, and would send the promised games shortly.On 11/21 I had still not received the games, and advised Cheryl or her son David, that I would be filing a bad trade report in a week, unless the games promised to me or the games that I had sent, were sent/ sent back to me. Another trader had advised me in the interim that they had been approached by "David" asking for a trade of a new game, which he said was for his mother, and in the email I sent I advised that I did not think this was fair, for him to pursue other trades when ours was incomplete from his end. On 11/21 I received an email from "David", who said he had attempted that other trade for himself, and that he would send the promised games to me that weekend. It is now 12/10, and I have not received the games.
I very much dislike filing a bad trade report, and so have waited on doing so, until it appears that this party is going to continue to pursue trades, and possibly become a problem for other traders. I have tried to be patient as I believed the other party to be ill. I will be more than happy to remove this btr if I receive my games back, in the condition in which they were sent, or receive the games promised me (in the condition they were promised).

I traded him my copies of Vay and Lunar: The Silver Star for the Sega CD; both were in good working condition, though Vay was missing the manual; he was aware of this before the trade. I agreed to trade for a copy of Phantasy Star for the Master System and Albery Odyssey: Legend of the Eldean for the Saturn. The games arrived in poor condition; Phantasy Star was missing its manual, and Albert Odyssey was only the disc and was scratched so badly it would not run and cannot be repaired. I contacted him about this, and we agreed that he would return Lunar and that I would return him Albert Odyssey upon receiving the game. Several weeks later, I had not received Lunar, and contacted him; he claimed that Vay was scratched and did not work (which is untrue, as I tested it beforehand), and wanted to return it to me instead of Lunar. I agreed; however, more then a month later, I have yet to receive either game in the mail; my e-mails and IMs have gone ignored. I will gladly remove this bad trader report *upon receiving Lunar back*, at which point I will return the damaged Albert Odyssey disc. Do *not* trade with Drew; he is untrustworthy and a theif.
