He set up a trade with me, and never sent his half of the deal. Four days after he supposedly sent his package out, he IM'ed me wanting to know if I wanted to trade. When I inquired if he remembered our current trade, he simply said 'no' and was suddenly logged off. I checked the bad traders list and found out he's been scamming people all over the place! What's worse, he's even requested confirmation over UGTZ, as if I'd confirm a deal before receiving the package! If the address is Riverdale, GA BEWARE!

He asked me to trade my Actraiser game for Time Crisis PSX, and I never recieved it. This was about 2 months ago, I lost the addy for UGTZ and had to create a new account, I think his UGTZ ID was something like mpeco or somethin.

We agreed to a trade where he would send me Mechcommander and I would send him Wargames. I shipped my game out to him the day after we made the arrangement priority mail. After a week had gone by I emailed him politely requesting the status of my game. He did not respond. In checking the bad traders list a couple of days ago, I noticed a double reporting in which one of the reportees had the same mailing address I was told to send to (the one listed above). It was a different name and email address, Benjamin Lok - benlok@yahoo.com which is no longer in use. I believe the other party involved was Christian McMahon - pobox@gte.net, although these two reports have been removed. Oddly Mr. McMahon was being reported by Herbert Park and not Ben Lok. On Mr. Park's trading page he requests sending to HerbertPark@yahoo.com instead of his AOL address for faster service, which is the email address I used to contact him at. In checking the one trade link on this traders page I discovered that the other trader he had made a trade with (Chris Peltzer - dpeltzer@optonline.net) had also made a trade with Ben Loc. There was also a trade with another yahoo.com address that led to another non-existent account. These 3 trades occured at roughly 2 month intervals leading me to believe either this is the bad trader himself or he is running a scam with someone else. Curiously Chris Peltzer links to and promotes a company called Zonked Web Design Service. This is the same business I was told to address my package to by Herbert Park. If a trader uses the address listed above do not trade with them. You will only be throwing your game away.

We agreed to trade my Heavy Gear (OEM) and Test Drive 4 (full version) for the PC, for his 4 SNES games: Busby, Mario All-Stars, Super Mario World, and Donkey Kong Country. First, it took him about a month and a half to get me 3 of the 4 games, missing All-Stars. I told him about the missing game and he claims he's lost it. He has not replaced it and not offered compensation. I think he's probably an immature, irresponsible teenager, based on his emails, so beware. I have a record of all our email correspondence, so if you wish to review it, please let me know. Andrew, if you will clear this up with me, I will take this off and restore your good name.
