Near the middle of March I sent out my PSP to him for my part of the trade. He was supposed to send me 90$ dollars, but It's been nearly three months after sending him my item, and he has not replied to any messages and emails I sent him. I didn't want to send this report, but nothing else seems to work, and I am using this as a last resort. I hope the situation can be straightened out in which case I'll remove this report.

Very similar to the situation Weissvulf described. The deal was made on April 6th. I was to send a Mac copy of Star Trek: Elite Force 2 and he would pay me $8. But I was to send first. This was the second time I had dealt with him, so I didn't have any problem shipping first. I sent, he has never marked as received, nor has he contacted me. I have sent repeated emails hoping to finish this deal out.

I hate to have to add the BTR, but there doesn't seem to be any other option. I hope nothing serious has happened to him, and maybe this situation can be sorted out.

A lot like my explanation before. I am truly sorry for the delay, but I did get your money out to you already. Please check your paypal account. I understand you waited long enough as it is without any communication from me, so I don't mind you putting it up. Completely my fault.

We pended a trade on March 29, 2007.

I aggreed to send a Gameboy Advance and he offered me 10 shipped for it.

I sent the GBA out on April 9, 2007 and according to the delivery confirmation it was recieved on April 13th.

Since then, he has told me he has been in some financial distress and would ship promptly when possible and I told him that was fine. It has been about a month and a week since he had recieved but still no money. I thought it would be better to get this over with than to wait any longer. I'll take the BTR down when I get my end of the deal.

Parker agreed to pay $5 + $3 shipping for an original gameboy. I sent it out (30-Mar-2007) and didn't hear from him. Wanting find out if something went wrong, I asked him (after about 2 weeks 15-Apr-2007) to update his status or let me know if there was a problem, since the package had not returned to me.

ELEVEN days later (26-Apr-2007) his lets me know that he had already recieved the package and that all was fine. He tells me that he just sent me the money.

The following day (27-Apr-2007) he tells me that he only sent $7 and that he is sending an additional $1

Almost two weeks later, I have neither recieved anything, nor heard from Draper. After reviewing his incomplete trades, he has a long list of small trades which people have been complaining about. I'm not terribly concerned about how he gets his end of the trade to me, so long as he does.

EDIT: He has claimed that this is the second time something he has sent has not gone through. Take it as you will, but I can interpret this as one of two things:
a) he made a mistake in how he addressed/sent it (if he put a return address as he should've, he'd already know if this was the case)
b) he never sent the money at all and is just stalling for time so he can deal with the other people demanding his end of their trades

He has offered to return the item I sent him. As such, the BTR will come down once I have received the money owed me OR I have recieved my original item back.

5-13-07 - He has also threatened to BTR me, even though he has admitted to receiving everything I owed him, as well as admitting to not sending everything he was supposed to.

7-11-07 - The threat was not explicit, but rather implied by this message:

" o yeah, and don't ever btr like u did to me

I was btr'd b - 4 this, and in that one, we were arguing back and forth, then i btrd him, then he btrd me "

The only reason for mentioning or bringing this up is to imply that the same will happen in this situation (i.e. that you will file a return BTR). I have no need for this information, and it will not affect my actions at all other than to feel that your tone is threatening.
