I agreed to send him MechAssault and Guilty Gear X2 in exchange for Halo and Disgaea: Hour of Darkness. I even threw in Turok: Evolution (PS2) to even the trade out a little more. I sent my side of the trade on Mar. 15 -- he apparently sent on the same day. Unfortunately, I've received nothing and it looks like many other traders on this site have been ripped off by this guy recently, too. I'd advise all who've been ripped off by this user to file mail fraud against him and, as previously mentioned by other traders, to contact the Edmonton Police Department.

We had agreed to exchange my copies of Star Ocean: The Second Story for PSX (a rare game) and Harvest Moon: Save The Homeland for PS2 in exchange for his EarthBound for SNES. I sent ExpressPost, which isn't cheap. After over two weeks, I received my package, which had been marked "Return To Sender" but opened by Barrett. He had taken Star Ocean, and the DVD casing and insert for Harvest Moon. I received the disc in a CD-R case. I guess he would have felt bad to steal both of my games, so he only took one. There has been no response to the e-mails I've sent, he supposedly sent EarthBound BEFORE I did by ExpressPost. DO NOT TRADE WITH THIS USER!!! Rest assured Barrett, if I don't receive EarthBound soon, I will be calling the Edmonton Police Department, and your parents.

We agreed on a trade and unfortunately I sent my side off just before receiving several emails about him later that day about possibly being a BTR. I have sent my side but have not received anything yet. Considering all the other BTR's I doubt that I will. I have filed a Mail Fraud claim and called the Edmonton Police. I hope everyone involved in this mess does the same.


Update: 4/29/04

By some fantastic twist of fate my package was returned to sender by the postal service. So I haven't lost my side of the trade but the fact of the matter remains the same. Still no contact from "Barrett Theroux".

I sent both of my games on 3-18-04. I have yet to get a response from him. I see many other BTR's reported on him, so hopefuly we can all try and do something to make this right. I will repost the information that TVC15 Posted (thanks again for the info):

For everyone else that was scammed by method man, call Edmonton Police Detective Ron Scolds and leave a message on his machine explaining the situation. His phone number is: 1-(780) 421-3584.

Also you can report him for mail fraud at the FBI's Internet Fraud Complaint Center at: http://www.usps.com/postalinspectors/fraud/MailFra...

I will remove this BTR as soon as either my games are returned to me or once I receive the items promised.

We were supposed to send our items at the same time, and I did my part of the deal. He is supposed to send me Suikoden II, Final Fantasy Origins, and .//hack Quarantine. He has't responded to my e-mails in over a week, and the website says he hasn't even sent yet. He needs to send me my half of the deal, or this will not come down, and I will seek further action!
