On August 10, 2013, I sent bentheboom $15 via PayPal to purchase an item on eBay. Ben told me payback for the loan would be August 15, 2013 for a total of $17.

I contacted him on August 25, 2013, asking him to update me on the situation. I wasn't too worried about this trade, as I have traded with ben on several occasions and everything went smoothly. He replied quickly and apologized, saying he ran into some financial troubles as he was recently (at that time) scammed for his computer.

It is now October 3, 2013, and I haven't heard from him since. He last logged onto GameTZ on September 15, 2013 and hasn't been on since. As there are several users coming out filing BTRs on him, I will also do the same. Nothing against Ben at all. Just letting others know that this trade with him didn't go so smoothly.

I would also like to make note that Ben never mentioned to me that he was 10 years old. On my previous trades with him, everything went smoothly so I never had to question his age. I noticed that he updated his profile page stating his age, which wasn't previously there.

I don't mind trading with youngsters as long as the trade is legit, but I would have definitely have been more careful knowing he is only 10 years old.

For this BTR to be removed, I would like back the full payment of $17 which is owed to me. Once again, I've had nothing but great trades with Ben. This is just my BTR notice to the community.
