i sent my side of the trade months upon months ago, and joe just kind of dissapeared after making some empty promises about sending soon. i don't expect to get my stuff back, and i don't suspect anyone else will either, just thought i'd throw in another btr for the heck of it.

Ok its been quite long enough now. We agreed on this trade May 1st. Until 2 weeks ago he has kept in great contact with me. We decided to send at the same time. I was to get 4 complete super nintendo games and i was giving him $80. Since we already had a previous trade i had no problems sending same time and since everything went smooth the first time. It started that i was going to buy 2 games from him for $50 and buy the other 2 for $30 later. I sent the money and he recieved it and he told me that he had poorly printed my name and addy and they sent it back to him, he also said i could drop 5 dollars off of the price of $30 if i hadn't already sent. I had but i just told him to send the 5 dollar differnce with the games. He then said that he printed out my name and addy on then put in on the box this time and gave me a confirmation number, he also said he trusted me so he had sent all the games at once to save on shipping. I said that was fine and that he would get his money. since i had the confirmation # i figured i was safe to go ahead and send the rest of his money. I did. But then when i actually went and checked the confirmation # i found that my games went to Tulsa OK. and were delivered on the 14th of May. He said that he would take the number to the PO and find out about getting them back. He then lost the Delivery Confirmation Paper and told the lady there that the number was mine and that it should have went to PA not OK. He said he would get back to me once he found out how to get the games back to me. I figured that would take a while and he was keeping in touch and everything so that was fine. He also said that if he wasn't able to get the games he would give me a full refund. I told him that was fine and to make sure that he tried all he could to get me the games because i really wanted them. I then told him that He would have till the middle of July and if he didn't get the games back to send me my money back well now it is past the middle of july and he isn't returning my emails. I really need my money now as i have written in the email i sent him. Its really unfortunate that it had to come to this but if i don't hear from you soon joe i'm going to file mail fraud. I believed all that you told me but it seems as though you've told everyone something different and i heard nothing about most of the stories i've read. So get me my money and we can go along on our merry little way. But until i get it this stays up.

Ok, I made a trade with him before all of these BTRs came up. Needless to say I trusted him. I traded him my 2 psx games (PE2 and Time Crisis with Guncon) for Star Fox Adventures with strategy guide. I will contact the local authorities. The sad thing about this is that this is another case of a good trader gone bad.

Joe and I have 2 pending trades. In our first trade I agreed to send first and Joe agreed to send after he received my games. We created another pending trade while waiting for the first pending trade to close. I agreed to send this second part of the trade and Joe agreed to ship all of the stuff combined from both trades at once at the same time that I was sending the second set of items that we were trading since he had written an email saying that he had received the games from the first trade. These are the dates that everything I sent out my part of the deals, and the date that he said he would ship out his part:

- 1st trade: I sent my games April 25, 2003 (pended April 23, 2003), and he wrote me saying he received my games May 4.

- 2nd trade: I sent my games May 5, 2003 (pended April 29, 2003)

- He said he sent all games for both of these trades on May 5, 2003.


I have not received anything from him. He completed the first trade but claims not to have received second set of games, I find this hard to believe since it has been 2 months now and I have not received the games he agreed to send me.

I have been very patient and came through with my end of the deal. As soon as I receive the games that we agreed upon I will take this BTR down, but for all other traders reading this I would recommend that you Do Not trade with Joe (nikon, nes420, J. Bird). He has trades that are still pending from March, April, and May. I only want to finish this trade and get the games that I had agreed to trade for. I hope Joe gets in touch with me and I receive all of the games from our pending trades so I can take this BTR down.

I've pended two trades with Joe. First I sent him $25 via paypal and 3 wks subtime on 5-20-03 for 1) Nes River City ransom cart, 2) Nes Dogbone Controller Complete, 3) Nes Isolated Warrior. Next, I sent him a VHS Trainspotting 3 days later and he was supposed to throw $5 in with the games. I waited a while and the games (nor money) never arrived. I contacted him and he said that he sent the items and that he had a DC. I asked him for the #. Instead of giving me the #, he said that he would run by the post office and check it out. He contacted me and said that the post lady had improperly scanned the DC and that it did not work. I told him that I'd wait two more weeks for the items to arrive. He agreed that he'd send me a money order after that time. Two weeks went by and I contacted him. I offered to eat the shipping costs and the cost of the money order if he'd send one. He agreed to send a money order for $28. Well, no money order. Since I know another person that has filed a BTR, I figure that I'll never get that money order.
I've sent a complaint to paypal (hopefully I'll get some money back).
Update.
Yeah, I won the paypal dispute. Boo, it's been more than 30 days so paypal won't give me any money.
Also, seems as though Mr. Carr is quite busy. Not only is he in Europe, but he's fixing his brother's roof (who has a US phone #), and counting his stolen money $$$. Oh well, I think a few of us are going to file a Mail Fraud claim.

So sad when a good trader goes bad. Ok here is my story. I came home one day to find an email from Joe. Saying he has some NES boxes and manual I need and one game. So we get two talking, strike a deal and decide to send at the same time. HE doesn't have a scanner so he can't send me a picture of items unless he sends to friends house, has them scan and the sent back to him. I look at feedback and decided to trust him. I send my part out $40 money order and complete Trolls on Treasure Island. I still have receipt for postal money order and delivery confirmation. So a week later I'm still waiting for my items. Email him tells me there was a death on wife's side of family and has not had time to send. Ok tell him that's ok sorry for his lost. 2 weeks go by now they are lost in mail. Didn't have money for 55-cent delivery confirmation but did have $1.30 to insure it. Asked him to scan postal receipt and insurance slip so I can see, again was told no scanner cant send pictures. Told me he didn't have a chance to cash money order to use that money to ship with. Hmmm.... Postal money order, seem easy enough to two cash at post office. I was going to wait a few more days to file this but I can see now the lies are growing. I will keep this up until I get my money and game back. Or my items he promised in trade.

6/27/03 I have now filed a mail fruad report. I hope others will do the same. Maybe then he will come thruogh on some of these Trades.

6/27/03 I have looked up the local police department. Alexis Police Dept
122 N Main St, Alexis, IL 61412
Phone: (309) 482-5537
This will be my next step if items are not recived by 7/5/03

7/4/03 OK I have not heard anything for Joe, No attempt to make good. I will be calling his local police department Monday. I will file a theft report, Then I will forward the officers name in charge to everyone that has left BTR so we can combine our efforts in this matter. I will be on vacation next week. Just taking sometime off, I'm not going anywhere so I will have alot of time to work on this. I'm make it my pet project for the week.

7/7/03 OK no answer at local police department. I did find number to local sheriff that will be paying a visit to Joe sometime today. Seems the Sheriff already knows who he is, Good thing or bad thing? I'll bet on bad. I have emailed everyone that has a BTR up here with info. I will also let everyone know what the sheriff says when he calls me back today. The phone # to sheriff is 1-903-582-5194 if you want it. I put it in everyones email also.

7/17/03 Got my letter from the post office today for mail fruad. Joe should have is also or will sooon. I'll see if this gets him moving at all. I will fill my form out and return if I don't hear from him soon.
