This thread has been created to provide insight for folks trading and buying. Sometimes knowing that a guy/gal has some or MANY successful trades/sales is good peace of mind.

IF THE PERSON DOESN'T HAVE LOTS OF GOOD TRADER RATING FEEDBACK, AND YOU DONT KNOW THEM, THEN PRIVATE MESSAGE DigitalBabe or APsmith21 ... We can get you the info you need to feel safe and or make a safe trade/purchase!

As we all know, trading is at your own risk. However, we are able to stop many deals from turning sour if you enable us. We have one bad person who has been a scam artist at many HT/Blu-ray sites besides ours.

The above are all the same person.

Other bad traders:

MEDIAMEX - continued to delay shipments, up to weeks at a time. Would not reimburse members for items already received. Appeared to source OOP items, after trade was agreed upon.

JEREMY13130 - member from France. States he has rare items for trade when he really does not. Be wary of members with no feedback that ask you to send first.

OSCARLUCY - owed shipments to members here, delayed due to a number of different stories. Supposedly recently shipped items out to members, after 5+ months of delays.

NELLYPLATINUM & YASAIRA1 - owed an item to a member here - trade occurred on another forum, had previously told trading mods he would make good on the amount owed. Never paid the seller.

DLEAVEY81 - owed steebook (paid for) to user here. No response on forum or via e-mail. Also has an outstanding trade issue at AVF forums.

SHONUFF6 - received items from a couple of members and has not visited this forum since the beginning of January 2013.

JEZHEAD - received items from one member and a HDN secret santa gift from another - sent nothing in return and has not visited this forum since December 2012.

93COBRA - also known as Fast Eddie - defrauded members on BD forums and you tube of hundreds of dollars of items. General trading alert posted here.

Marty mcFly - member from France. Owes members here items and has been delaying shipment since in contact with staff for weeks, some traders have been waiting months.

AMEN - sent a member here damaged steels and the wrong steelbook. Would not resolve the problem with the other member or respond to mod / staff requests for more info.

Top_cat2-failed to complete numerous trades/communicate. Numerous traders waiting for items for several months (some since 2012).

slackerz - failed to respond or to resolve a trading issue over months of promises to replace damaged items.

TIGER - took funds for a "pre-order" of items not in-hand to one member and wouldn't refund, also failed to fulfill 6 steelbook trade with another member.

Roverite - owes at least 10 members various steelbooks from GB's he hosted in 2013. Various attempts to communicate but to no avail.

humperklonk - Lack of communication to resolve trade issues backdating to end of last year. Owes one member 7x steels which were paid for but never sent the items. Another member is waiting on 1x steel to be sent.

Unisol1980 - Attempted to sell a High Value rare steelbook by randomly PM'ing members. This was after Trade Mods refused to approve his sales thread without him supplying the necessary references/info.

**************************

The posts below are from when this was a Good Traders/Bad Traders list ... from the date this OP has been updated ... this thread will only serve as a Buyer Beware and Hall of Shame for those bad traders out there. If you need info on good traders view their trader rating under their avatar in the post bit (to the left) or PM a Mod.

I suggest you PM a mod for any deal over $75 if you dont know the person, regardless if they have 3 successful feedbacks etc. This is YOUR community as much as it is OURS, and we'll make the time everytime to make it as safe as possible for all.

Added 1/23/2012:

Hi All-just a general reminder-if you are experiencing difficulty with a trade at our site, feel free to contact a moderator, and we can provide suggestions on how to resolve the matter, if the trade took place at our site.

If, despite repeated attempts to resolve the trade/contact the trader, you do not receive any communication, or items, etc, please use the Feedback system in place at the site, or the rest of the community will not be aware of issues with traders. In addition, you have a limited time frame to file Paypal disputes, so please familiarize yourself with that process, just in case, to further protect yourself. In addition, the Staff will take action against accounts for repeat offenders if absolutely necessary.

Thanks all!
DB

I had them as a non payer on my F4 edition - bloody buggars!
well i have blocked them and they have now got 2 non payment strikes. My preferences stop buyers with or more bidding on my items so if all buyers did that then they will have shot themselves in the foot!

UK seller... I suspect this is an eBay scammer **medusa** Does not reply to PM and item not received. Couple of days ago made Feedback comments private. Using the same tactics as scammer suicide.squid with similar type of sale items.
Another UK ebayer pulling the same tactics as the above > cherry-terror

any reason why you waited 2 years (according to your screen shot timestamps) to come forward?

When I ordered it the release date was 2-3 month later (of course after 3 month PayPal can't help me to get my money back) and when I contacted him after he said the release date has pushed. And after that I saw an other GB had started to ship and I contacted him again and asked when he will ship mine but he never replied.

Then I tried to contact him via eBay but no luck there either :(

And to be honest I'm not very good on this and didn't know how or where I can't rapport it until I saw this post on HDN.

It's a nightmare dealing with bad traders I encountered one on ebay 8 years ago and ebay were pretty useless and from what i gather they still are. On the rare times I deal with a bad trader (once in the past 3 years) I give them two weeks only and then request my money back so I don't loose out.... Ebay won't or can't deal with them.

Another eBay member to be wary of kfilmfan. Unpaid item. Why bid if you are not going to pay.
