Mike and I pended a trade on February 27, 2007 in which I agreed to loan him $400 PayPal in return for a game, a DVD, and a $420 payback. He shipped the game and DVD right away, no problems there. He stated that he would be able to pay the loan back on March 9 because he was expecting a $400 PayPal payment from someone else he dealt with named Jordan.
On March 5, Mike asked if I wanted Jordan to send to me directly. I said he could do whatever he preferred to do since it did not matter to me how he got me the money. He cancelled the payment he was expecting from Jordan and gave me all his contact information. He then had me email Jordan (though it should not be my responsibility to go after some other guy that owes Mike money). Jordan replied to my email on March 9 saying he had no idea what was going on, and that I should fill him in. I did so and have not heard from him since.
I have been in contact with Mike and I asked him if he was going to make any attempt to pay me back himself. The latest I heard from him was on March 23 when he stated: "Well after refunding my entire paypal account to him [Jordan] to give to you i'm not exactly on the high end of money. The best i can do is keep trying him, if nothing in the next few weeks i'll take legal actions."
Mike seems like a nice guy, but the bottom line is that he owes me a lot of money and has not followed through on what he agreed to. If he did not have a reliable way to complete his side of the deal he should not have agreed to the deal. I will gladly take this BTR down when I get what he owes me.
Response from Accused "Bad Trader":
No arguement on this, i'm fine with this staying up until things are worked out although i did refund jordan all of his money i agree that i should help wcmike recieve that paypal.
