Louie was the first trader I ever dealt with here and he left a bad taste in my mouth. He originally approached me on 24 February 1999 about selling his Saturn system. His original offer was: "im asking 80 dollars for it, it is 2 months old, 1 controller, ac adaptor, av wires, 4 games and 2 sampler cd. the games are, Virtual Cop, Daytona USA, Virtual Fighter 2, World Wide Soccer 98, Nights into Dreams Sampler, and Bootleg Smapler. all the games are in great condition."
It took a lot of work to get him to send the system. He had agreed to send it to a friend since at that time I was living in Japan. That friend was coming to visit me in Japan and had agreed to bring it with her when she came. After several email messages inquiring where the package was (over 2-3 weeks), it finally arrived the day before she left for Japan.
When my friend arrived in Japan, I found out the games were NOT
in "great condition" as he had indicated: all of them were heavily scratched, though luckily they all seemed to work. All I ask is that he contact me to work out some sort of deal to make up for the scratched games. I'm not sure if he'll ever take care of this, though, since he seems to have disappeared from the site.Update: 16 March 2002
I sent him a message asking what he wanted to do to take care of the problem, and he wrote back:
Sorry but i do not remember anything, and im not making up
for something i dont recall. If you had a problem with this,
why did it 3 years to notify me. I dont remember the condition,
and i dont remember the trade. Sorry but theirs nothing i can do!
To answer his only question to me: I waited this long because he was the first trade I did here, and the BTR system wasn't as refined back then as it is now. He was a silver-star trader at the time (or at least had a bunch more trades than I did--I forget if the star system was in place when I did this trade), and I didn't know if anyone would believe me, someone with only one trade, over him. I decided to finally put up the BTR after seeing that he had 3-4 other BTRs on him.
He doesn't seem too keen on fixing his problems, though I'm willing to be pleasantly surprised.
