I mailed out a N64, 4 mb expansion pack, 2 games(zelda and star wars), 1 controller and memory pack. In return I was to recieve a Neo Geo Pocket Color with 4 games. I have a DC # for the package I sent, and it states the package was delivered. He denied recieving said package. I called him, and he lied several times, about his address, the package, and proceded to give me a fake DC #. I hung up, tracked the DC # and found out it was fradulent. I called back, and got his mother on the phone. She said this has happened before, and also denied getting a package(LIE). So now I am without the N64 or the NGPC which was never sent. I will persue this to the fullest extent, and will set an example out of knyland and his mother! I refuse to be ripped off, regardless of age. His mother's excuse was that he was a minor. Well, he can read well enough to participate on gametz and complete transactions, so I'm sure he was able to read the section of MAIL FRAUD. Point and case he ripped me off and I won't tolerate it.

UPDATE (10-19-00)
kgamer219's(aka kbyrd3)(aka saltman4u) mom sent part of my stuff back. Only after he had removed the Expansion Pak from my 64, and sent me back a pc game instead of the 2 N64 games(Rogue Squadron and Zelda) that I had sent him!

Once I receive something to compensate for the loss on the trade I will remove this BTR. If Knyland makes an effort to right this wrong, then I would consider him a changed trader. But until then, I still feel a warning is needed!

AuntieM(dan fox)and i made a deal and pended a trade on Febuary 22nd that consisted of me sending him payment of 70$ for a Sega Nomad, an AC adaptor and a complete Gunstar Heroes. I sent the money out right away and didnt hear anything from him. I emailed him asking what was going on after i saw that he had gotten payment, he replied saying he was busy with work and that he would be sending right away.. Well obviously he didnt and that was about 2 weeks ago! I have tried emailing him to find out what is going on but i havent gotten any replies yet. Another user is also being ripped off by AuntieM and if niether of us recieve our end of the deal we will be going together and filing for mail fraud. On a positive note, this BTR will be removed when i get my nomad.

*DON"T TRADE WITH THIS PERSON, HE IS A LYING CON-ARTIST*
We were supposed to trade my ps2 for his psx and d-cast package. I made a mistake and gave him the address of Kgamer219. As a result i never recieved his package. I told him i would try to get his package back, He said he does'nt want it back, He wanted my ps2. He also said if i didn't send the ps2 he will post a btr on me. The reason why i'm not sending him the ps2 is because I never got his package, and it will be like me sending him a free ps2. NOw he is harassing me. I APOLIGIZE FOR GIVING YOU THE WRONG ADDRESS John Coniff, and i hope we both can learn from this. C-ya P.S> i am working on getting you your package back. THAT's IF YOU REALLY SENT IT, because i asked you for the tracking # and you keep avoiding that question. C-ya

i don't think clay is a real bad trader but obviously we have unfinished business that has been avoided from his end for too long.

here's the story...

Clay and I made a trade last spring involving his game gear games and some accessories in exchange for my oddworld and resident evil: director's cut (psx)

my end of the trade appeared to have been lost in the mail so i replaced it with metal gear solid, tekken 2, and a psx multi-tap. i express-posted this to him to have the deal done and to make up for the postal problems. all was done until....

...a little while later, the original package showed up at his door also, apparently delayed by an error by the post office. i told him to play the games and we'd work something out in the future on the extra stuff he now had.

we had talked from time to time, but in the fall i wrote to request that he just return metal gear solid and tekken 2. he agreed and said that he shipped on september 22nd. a few weeks passed so i e-mailed him to see what was up. he said it must've been lost and i said we should give it a month anyway, in case it was misrouted like my package was. a couple months passed. his e-mail was down again and he was reformatting his pc but said he was going home for the holidays and would get back to me after that. nothing.

i wrote him again in february and was told that he just had to get his metal gear solid back from whoever had it and would get back to me. nothing.

i wrote again on march 11th and i was told that the friend of his that had his metal gear solid was dropping it off and he'd mail it asap.

here, i was told that he had mailed it a few months earlier and now his friend has it. hmmm...

i've heard nothing back from him since so here i am now. luckily, i still have all of the e-mails saved here. this has been a small, nagging issue for too long and the misinformation in his e-mails is disturbing after having gone through them all..

i have e-mails to confirm this all.

this report will come down when the games really do get mailed and arrive...hopefully that will be soon.

btw, the games are all still listed on his available list.....
