Earlier this year, in August, Frank and I made a trade where I would send him a Dreamcast system and two controllers for $70. Days later, I sent Frank my system and package and he e-mailed me to let me know that he recieved the system and later the 2 controllers. He told me it would take a week or so to get the money but he would send it soon. Weeks later on September 17th, I sent the following e-mail to Frank:

Subject: DC

Date: Tue, 17 Sep 2002 06:56:01 -0700 (PDT)

Just wondering if you've sent the money order for

the Dreamcast, games and controllers I sent. Please let

me know, thanks-

Frank replied saying

So I told him that was fine and waited about another month and asked again on October 13th if he had sent the money order. Again he replied saying I need to wait

Frank's reply:

they are payed off. Thanks for your patince.

I have yet to recieve the money order and again e-mailed on November 14th him telling him that I would need the money order by December 1st. I sent my address and he has not replied since then.

Dec 5th - He finally did email me back, but still no game. He also didn't ship it the way we agreed on (First Class) so who knows when it could get here....

He and I agreed to trade my Totaled!(Xbox) for his Burnout(Xbox). i sent it out 2 weeks ago and still have not recieved anything. I have repeatedly sent him email asking for him to respond. All i want is either Burnout or my totaled! back to remove this BTR.

The trade was:
Driver 2
for his:
Bushido Blade 2

It's been about 90 days since we agreed to this trade(Gametz just canceled it because it had been pending for 90 days frown ). I sent right away, and have been waiting for my game ever since. In his emails, he's said he recieved it, but has never said when, and he's never told me he sent my game, plus he still has Bushido Blade 2 in his available list. 90 days is long enough, so I'm leaving a BTR, until I get either Bushido Blade 2, $15, or Driver 2 back in the SAME MINT CONDITION.

We agreed to trade my Final Fantasy X for his Devil May Cry on October 13th, 2002 and he pended the deal.

Roughly 2 weeks later he said that he got my game but he couldn't send his just yet because of the amount of work he had (business trips). I said that this was fine and for him to keep me updated. Few days later he informed me that he was sending the game. I haven't seen it, yet nor have I heard from him. He hasn't replied to any of my 4 e-mails and he hasn't logged on to since October 14th, 2002. He never completed the trade even though he received my side of the deal.

I don't want to be a part of this trade anymore. I waited long enough. I want my FFX back ASAP.

I'm not calling Evan a thief. I can understand that he was/is extremely occupied with something but he should've thought about that ahead.

I will take this BTR off once I receive my game back.

It seems that the trade with gusto7 (Matt Korte), and myself was a planned one to rip off GameTZ users by Antonio. The trade with Killswitch_Engage (Robert G) was a big one, and I guess Antonio decided to sacrifice his reputation for lots of games.

He used a game he received from the trade with Killswitch_Engage as the bait to rip me off. I sent Diablo as soon as the trade was created, and he was supposed to send Alice at the same time.

Obviously, he didn't send his and that's why I'm reporting this. I hope this kind thing will not happen again to anyone in GameTZ.
