On April 30, 2005 Darknyte asked the GameTZ moderators to delete his account. We checked and noticed that he had 5 pending trades (with 4 different traders). So, we asked him about these pending trades. His response was:

"I sent them all, the post says they were delivered but the other people won't update on their side."

We checked the trades and he mark all as sent on or before April 20th (some were in March). Weeks have gone by. There has been plenty of time for his packages to arrive. Yet, for these 5 cases, no one has received from him. He has no Deliver Confirmation numbers to back up his statement ("the post says they were delivered") either.

We assume that he has lied about sending to all of his pendings. Him asking to delete his account was likely an attempt to cover his tracks after ripping a number of people off.

In our last email to him, we gave him a warning to make things right, but he has not responded.

If you have a pending with him and have already sent, we recommend that you call the police in his home town and file a criminal complaint against him. Get in contact with the other pending trades and work together. There are 3-4 of you, so if you all file a complaint, you have a better chance of getting some justice. Don't let this guy get away with ripping you off.
Response from Accused "Bad Trader": (15-May-2005)
Ya know why I didn't reply? Because you sent me a copy/paste form email full of veiled threats and failed attempts to imtimidate me. If you want me to reply to something then type it with your own hand, don't copy/paste garbage, hit send, and then expect me to reply. Also, you state I didn't reply within 48 hours to the email, that's total bullcrap. The header on the email shows that it was sent 27 minutes before this BTR was posted.

I asked to have my account deleted because I don't care for the community that this site has generated. It's full of elitist pricks if you ask me, and the biggest prick of them all is this moron Bill.

We just got a tip that this account (eric259) is a 2nd account for the user ebroadie. ebroadie got a Bad Trader Report about a year ago.

I'm filing this BTR mostly to warn everyone who has a pending trade with eric259. It looks like there's a good chance he's a scammer who has no intention of sending his side of any deal he makes. It looks like most of you have not sent yet, so you're safe. To protect yourself, please don't send until you get his side first.

A year ago, ebroadie didn't complete any trades. This new account,eric259 has 6 pending trades, none are complete (though, upto 3 weeks have gone by).

Reporter: bill

CAE just created an account at GameTZ and immediately started sending offers to several other traders in which he wanted to trade high-value portable systems (PSP & DS). With each offer, he required that the other trader send first.

The likelihood that he is out to scam people is very high, so we have suspended his account.

If CAE made an offer to you, especially if the offer is too good to be true. Please do not send first!

Protect yourself!

I'm filing this BTR mainly to warn thx3434's pending trades.

thx3434 has 7 pending trades. For all of them, he's reported that he sent, but he also recently asked us to delete his account and then froze it. We find these actions very suspicious, so we wanted to warn you all. We emailed him, but he did not reply to us.

We recommend that you do not send thx3434 anything until you get what he is sending you. It seems likely that he hasn't actually sent and that he intends to abandon these trades.

Hopefully, we're wrong and he really did send and all these trades will be worked out.

I'm creating this BTR to warn the pending trades of bobdoleforprez.

We've identified bobdoleforprez as being the same person who used the account DM, Brandon Blankenbaker.

DM has 2 old BTRs on it.

We highly recommend that you not send anything to Brandon until you get his side first. If you do get his side, feel free to complete the trade (the moderators can help complete the trade if needed). We're not planning to let Brandon back at this point. If you don't get anything from Brandon, you can just cancel the trade.
