I know that it is recommended not to trade with another new user, but I was presented with a deal that I couldnt pass up. We both agreed to ship immediately; I was to send NBA Live 2008 and the Forza/Marvel two pack both for the Xbox 360 in exchange for a 120gb hd, a wireless controller and NHL 2K7. He claimed to have sent on the 13th of March, and while I did have to wait until the 14th of March, I did send on that day. On the 21st, I sent a message asking if they had sent it pony express, because even if it had been sent media mail, I should have received it that day. That was responded with a story about how all the mailboxes had been robbed, and they were going the following Sunday (March 23rd) to the local police station to pick up the items and ship them to me. I then had to send another message,asking if they had heard anything from the police or if they had retrieved the items. That was responded with "I will send the items when I get a chance." This upset me, so I sent a message saying, "when you get a chance? We were both supposed to send immediately." I told them that if I didnt receive my items soon, I would have to file a BTR. He then responded with this quote, directly from the Gametz.com message forum; "Hey jackass sis u hear what i said? Ya know what, screw off, ill send your crapty games back, u r stupid if u think that u were going to get that stuff. $200 worth of stuff for a $50 game and a game u got for free.... Go to hell." I did not appreciate being called those names; plus, they are the one who sent me the original offer. The following are the messages that were exchanged between us, in which he threatens to destroy the games:

on 25-Mar-2008 at 9:00pm gearhead937 hey butt-hole, if you remember correctly, YOU are the one who approached me with the trade, so wtf? whatever, but i want my stuff back in the same condition i sent it. you know, it must be nice to get two weeks worth of free rentals, and btw, i bought the games, i already had the xbox

He went back to try and cover his end by saying scratching them up worse than they already were, but those games were well taken care of. I then received what I thought was a tracking number for my games that he was sending back, but it turned out that it was a delivery to South Carolina, and I live in Georgia:
