BTR: Pyrokoria - Resolved (Poorly)

Post by Landshark » Mon Nov 04, 2013 10:11 am

Agreed to a trade, he said he would ship on Friday the week after he received my half of the trade, and he hasn't logged on Bartertown since. I'm super busy lately, but I've given him weeks now. USPS tracking number for the package I sent is 9114 9010 7574 2418 6590 10. Not sure what I should do now, is this something I could call the police about? Anyway - our correspondence:

I can work with that. I'd like the Witch Doctor's card if you have it, the Ravagers doesn't matter either way. Some of my champions arms are coming off a bit after awhile in storage, would you prefer if I re-attached them or just left them as is?

Looks like I'd be shipping first, if there's no other issues I'm ready to go ahead with the trade whenever you like.

Hey, it's been almost 3 weeks since your package was delivered. I can understand being busy or whatever, but I at least need to hear something back soon.
It looks like he hasn't checked either of the last two messages, but the site says he was online the day after I sent the second-to-last one.

He logged in this morning.

Here is his Facebook page:
https://www.facebook.com/search/web/?q= ... up?fref=ts

He is in a relationship with this person:
https://www.facebook.com/jennifer.knapp.14?ref=br_rs

Here are his Facebook friends with the last name (likely relatives)

Here is my advice:

Send him a message on Facebook and another PM here. In both PMs, give him the opportunity to make good on his side of the trade and 48 hours to contact you. Let him know that, if he does not, you will do whatever you can to locate him.
If he doesn't get back with you, send a FB message to every profile I linked above. Give them the general details (that you worked out a mutual trade on an internet site, sent your part & have confirmed that it arrived, but haven't received what he was supposed to send or any further contact from him). Let them know that you're not making accusations, but checking in to ensure that his health has not been compromised in that time frame. Basically, give him every opportunity to save face. The idea here is to get your stuff, not to make him look like a thief in front of his family. Allow him the opportunity for an "oops." The more you do that, the more likely you are to get your stuff (in my experience).

That's how I'd handle it.

Well, first the bad news, I couldn't get a hold of him through facebook. Everybody either wasn't accepting messages or didn't respond.

Good news: A week or two ago, I saw that Pyrokoria put up a new trading post, while looking through search results. To be honest I had pretty much written off the models I sent him as a loss at this point. I messaged him again on this site, and taking advice from this thread, I just asked him if he had any updates on his half of the trade. He said that he still had the models, and could ship them out in a couple days. He also said he would throw in an extra minion model, but that some of the parts from the models I had originally wanted were now missing after a move.

To my suprise, the package showed up recently, and while the models were in fairly low condition, everything was there except the two arms he had said were missing. He also included $6 in cash inside the box so I could order replacement parts. The parts came to $7 and some change after shipping, so he was pretty close.

While he at least made an effort to compensate me some for the delay, he didn't offer any explanation as to why he disappeared for 3-4 months and then didn't message me when he started using this site again. If you really want to make a deal with him, I highly suggest refusing to ship first, just in case.

BTR resolved.
