I sent him Ecco the Dolphin and Sword of the Berserk for Dreamcast in February. After about a month, I saw him on the forums trying to trade the games that I sent him. He didn't even tell me that he had received them, as he said he would. So I asked him about it on the forum and he said that he had indeed received them. From this, I gathered that he probably received the games a lot sooner than he suggested, seeing as I sent ground priority and it shouldn't have taken longer than a week. Anyway, after that, he sent me an email telling me that he didn't like the games. I asked him what he was talking about, as I specifically explained the condition of both of the games. He ignored the question. A few days later, I sent him an email asking when he was planning on sending my games. He said that he'd send them within the next few days. This was well over a month ago. I have tried to get in contact with him, asking when I should be receiving the games with no answer. By the way, every time I DID speak to him, he was hard to understand. His english was terrible and he would ignore the majority of my questions.

This Bad trader report will stay up until I receive an apology AND my games.(chu chu rocket and toy commander, both on dreamcast) If this doesn't happen soon, I will sue him for mail fraud.

Kenny, please just send me an email and tell me what's going on, then send my games if you haven't already. I'm a nice guy, but I won't put up with this garbage.

ok, this really pisses me off. we made a Trade my Laptop for his PS2 with games. I sent out, but due to a mistake on the adress it was returned to me. He started threating me with mail fraud and I tried to explain to him what was going on. He then said he had gone to the post office and had stopped shipment on the PS2, (which I asked around and people said you can't do if it was sent regular mail). So I gave him the benifit of the doubt and We agreed to send again. So I sent out 3 packages on wed of this week, one to Ken Cooper, one to another trader, and one to a friend in colorado. He then emails me today starts cussing me out saying I was ripping him off and he was sueing me because the package contained a joystick. This is a bunch of bull, I Sent out Test Drive 4 + Mega Mem Card, A sony Glove controller with game magazine to a friend in colorado, and the laptop to him. I don't have any idea what he is talking about a joystick, I never have owned a joystick. This is really getting old, I have been around for two years and have not ripped a single soul off, and I wasn't about to start now, I'm not shure what he is trying to pull but something is not right, and for his information he can talk to anyone on my ratings list to see that they are real ratings, if you could write your own ratings everyone would do it.

Bill please help with this one

I am reporting Solomon as a bad trader because we had a deal that he would send a playstation all hook-ups, memory card, NBA shootout 98, Mortal Kombat Trillogy, both for psx, demo disk, and an a/c adapter for snes. I sent him Super Mario RPG, Super Mario Kart, Super Mario 2: Yoshi's Island, Donkey Kong Country 3, Super Mario Allstars all for snes and Ledgeon of Zelda: Link to the Past. And I was to send Earthworm Jim 2 for genisis when I recieved the package. It has been almost two months and I still haven't got it yet. I 've e-mailed him and he won't respond. Solomon I will lift this bad trader report off of you as soon as I recieve my end of the deal and I will also send the other part of your deal when I recieve the package. Until then I don't Recamend that you trade with this user.

I received and email, finally, from him on 4/10. The text is below :

"hi, i'm very sorry about the trade,i've been away for that time and something went wrong with my AOL. I can't get on Gametz to check who i traded with because my account was disable so i was waiting for other people to send me email but i didnt know what happen, i'm not getting some email. My cousin just checked my account and he told me i got a lot of bad trader report. i don't care about it anymore since i don't have the account. I'll try to send your stuff out ASAP so just bare with me. I might have to do it after the break but i will send. Very sorry for the inconvience."

Needless to say, I won't hold my breath.


We agreed on a trade in which I would send Unreal Tournament and he would send Gladiator DVD. He insisted that I send first because I had less trades (33 to 30).

My part of the trade was delivered Saturday, March 23rd, 2001 as indicated by the delivery confirmation number on the Post Office's web site. He indicated that he would be able to send the following Tuesday or Wednesday.

Later, he deleted our trade from the game site. I asked for an explaination since he had already received my part of the trade, and he replied that it was a mistake, he deleted the wrong one, and he reentered the trade on the site.

It's been over a week and a half since he received the game that I sent. I have emailed him repeatedly asking about when he would send his part, with no answer. The emails do not bounce and his account indicates that he last logged in on April 1st.

Do not trade with this guy. At the very best, he sucks at communication and has unacceptable delays, but I don't expect to see his part of the trade.

Kenny, if you're reading this ... You shouldn't have committed mail fraud on a police officer with a law degree. I will do my best to get law enforcement in your county involved. This can be prevented by returning the game I sent, or even doing something unusual like sending an email.

We have agreed to trade my MS Office 2000 for his Napa Dav310, CD Player/mp3/vcd. I sent my package with a confirmation # 03047990000254598090 and was arrived on 3/17/2001. After that, I send numerous email to him to ask him to send me the Napa CD player as promised, but he never answer my email since. His mailing address is:

Jose Grijalva
9308 Vernoy Way
El Paso, TX 79907

I will fill a mail fraud if he doesn't reply by the end of this week and contact local police office to file a criminal report on him.

Also, I have filed an report with Microsoft for the Office CD, its now filed as stolen.

Stop telling people that you can't get to your email system. There are cyberbars, cybercafes, and you can send emails in the library. Just send me the CD player, and I will drop this bad trader report.


If you don't send me a manual as promised, this trade will not be completed. Now I got this system completely dont know what to do with it. Please send me the manuel and I will forget the about your old system that you described it "same as new".
