We made a trade last December 2000 for my ST Key + PlayStation Laser Head unit (good condition) in exchange for his Fighters Megamix Sega Saturn game (US version, complete) + Dead or Alive 2 Strategy Guide but his end of the trade never arrived at my house. He has already received my end of the trade in record time and you can check it out yourselves by going to http://www.fedex.com and enter the online tracking number of the package I sent to Andrey Korsak. The FedEx tracking number is 810991020861. March 2001 is almost over and I just cannot put up with this crap any longer. I was very patient for your to produce your end of the trade Andrey because you were moving from New York to South Carolina....but enough is enough!!! Andrey, you better contact me if you ever want this BTR removed from your GTZ account! Below are the detailed conversations we had via email.

This message came from this loser when I posted an alarming message on the message boards about Andrey Korsak! I found out he was trading away my ST Key and his promised Fighters Megamix game (inculded in a Sega Saturn package for sale!) that he was supposed to be trading with me!

What the hell are you talkin about ??? remove that thing that you posted in forums ! Check my pending trades im getting another copy of FIGHTERS MEGAMIX !!! From a guy ? huh

Then I thought it was another game because I checked his trading activities and it found out it was supposed to be another Fighters Megamix game so I deleted my posts on the GTZ message board. Not long after that, my pending trade with Andrey got deleted by the system because his end of the trade did not arrive yet to my place. I posted another pending trade with him with the same items and emailed him to confirm that he has received my end of the trade. I never heard from him again nor did he confirm the 2nd posted trade. This is a fine example of a gold star trader gone bad so that means not all gold star traders WILL NOT RIP YOU OFF!!!

This guy had no intentions of sending me anything. He has ripped people off in the past, and he's done it again. He continues to create new accounts so he can steal your games. Never replied to my e-mails, except to ask If I had sent the games (which luckily I hadn't). Take a look at his one completed trade, it is with himself. This is a warning to all of you, DO NOT TRADE WITH THIS PERSON!

(978)-xxx-xxxx (phone number available if necessary)
ICQ: 60394290

We agreed on this trade on 7 May 2000, but we didn't send until the beginning of June because I had to buy the game he wanted and it was expensive.

I sent "Neon Genesis Evangelion" for the N64 via Airmail, and Adam was to send a Game Boy Color, a Worm Light, and a Final Fantasy Tactics strategy guide via Global Priority Mail. We were to send at the same time. I sent my package on 6 June 2000, and he received it on about June 15th.

His father sent the package on June 8th and it arrived on July 17th. It took over a month to arrive because it was sent via SURFACE instead of via Global Priority. Adam told me that he didn't know his father had sent it via Surface, and repeatedly told me it had been sent "Priority".

On 3 July 2000, I sent an ultimatum to him (you can read the entire ICQ conversation log at http://www.pazu.net/temp/UGTZ/adam_lakus-icq_log.t... ) where I told him that I would have my attorney hunt him down and extract what was owed to me.

Now, this may have been a little more forceful than absolutely necessary, but I felt Adam hadn't lived up to his side of the agreement, and I was upset at the way he was dealing with it. I filed the BTR, as I said I would in the message above, but I removed it because Adam posted a retaliatory BTR full of incorrect information. I was unsuccessful in getting that bogus BTR removed, so I felt there was no other recourse in order to get rid it.

On top of that, the Worm Light was not included in the package. Adam had written a small note saying it had broken and he was going to send another. He never sent the other Worm Light, and never brought it up until I confronted him about it after I received the package (remember, this was over 1 month after he sent it without the Worm Light).

To resolve this whole mess, Adam agreed to send me an International Postal Money Order for $23 to make up the difference in shipping costs and the lack of the Worm Light in the package.

The letter was sent on July 26th and it arrived August 5th, but Adam only sent an IPMO for $10. This has been one very frustrating trade because Adam has agreed to do things that he hasn't done (sending two days late, not sending the worm light, not sending the package via airmail, not sending $23). I've never been this frustrated with a trade before.

I finally agreed to complete the trade on GameTZ, but I still believe people should be warned about this. His actions are unacceptable, dishonest, and childish. I also decided to repost this BTR because he shouldn't be allowed to get away with this, even though the amount is quite small ($13). If and when I receive my $13 I will remove this BTR.


2001.03.28 - Added his newest email address to the list.


2002.01.14 - I sent the following message to the three email addresses listed to the left:

-----quote

[NOTE: This was sent to all three email addresses I have for you.]

Adam:

I wanted to give you a chance to clear up your BTR now that it's been about one year since it was filed. All you need to do to get the BTR removed and have your account reinstated is to send me a money order for $13. I now live in the States, so it will be much easier for you to do this. You can even use Delivery Confirmation if you want to.

I'd really like to get this taken care of. I don't think you are a bad person, and I'd like to see you back on GameTZ.

Please let me know what you'd like to do.

Hopefully he'll respond.

Agreed to trade on 1-13 and I sent the check for $13.20 in exchange for Robert E Lee Civil War General on that day. Today is March 21 and I am still waiting for my game. All I get are lame excuses about how tough his personal life is and how he can't get to a post office. BOO HOO!! I asked for my $$ back and no response since 2-28. DO NOT TRADE WITH THIS LOSER!!!
