BTR - ChickenHide Elliot Vega - Resolved

Post by nakedpanda » Tue Oct 14, 2014 4:55 am

'Mr. Vega' aka ChickenHide,

Final attempt at communication.

If you do not help work this out, I will pursue any and all legal means of closure available.

August 24th we struck a deal for my NIB Skorne Extreme Titan Gladiator, in return for your Infinity Cutter and Infinity Oyooroi.

September 12th you received delivery of the NIB Skorne Extreme Titan Gladiator.

Usps tracking number 9400110200881315989838 https://tools.usps.com

I have kept in contact via numerous bartertown PM threads, and I have attempted to contact you on Facebook.

I have received no communication since you provided your physical address.

Nor have I received any form of package from you.

It is currently a month since you received compensation.

Please respond,
Chris

I have a new in box (unopened) titan gladiator extreme.
The Cutter and Oyooroi tags are what I am looking for.

Any interest?

Thanks!
Chris

Neat! Then consider It done! I am assuming I am a lower rating so I will ship first. It will be a week and a half before I am home (out on work sorry)

So ya know I am not messing with you, I will not give my address. It will be on the shipping label only. That way you are risking nothing.

If this all sounds ok then it is a deal!

Looking forward to the trade,
Chris

Chickenhide / Elliot Vega's address is:

Elliot Vega
10827 Maidstone Ave
Santa Fe Springs, Ca 90670

I excluded it in case this was just a comedy of errors. Looks like it is required for a BTR though.

See, now we have an even bigger problem...

That's a BIG ONE there, if it's all true.

I'll have to do some deep digging this weekend, unless someone beats me to it.

I sent this note to the facebook addresses you listed.

This message is in regards to: Elliot Vega 10827 Maidstone Ave Santa Fe Springs, Ca 90670

Due to his participation in this transaction with me: viewtopic.php?f=103&t=243688&p=450534#p450534

I am attempting to contact Mr. Vega to complete this delinquent transaction. I have been trying to contact him for over a month.

If you have any way of helping, please let me know! I genuinely do not want to involve the authorities in this if I do not have to.

If this letter has found you, and you are not associated with him, then please disregard and accept my apologies!

Thanks for your time,
Chris

Unfortunately, they're one in the same:

Me:
John. It's MagickalMemories from Bartertown. What are you doing, man?
Him:
Hi, it was an oversight with Chris. I've taken care of it.

As to the multi accounting, I ran a game store for several years and closed it in July of 2013. Because of the type of store that I ran it became fairly well known in the SE region of the US.

Initially every time I posted something I was contacted by one of my less casual customers or someone who attended an event at my shop asking about the closing or giving me their take on what I could have done differently.

That got pretty annoying, so I stood off the site for a while.

When I moved and started to participate in the hobby again I created new accounts for almost everything using my middle name.
He immediately followed with this, which shows me that he knew what was coming:
If you wouldn't mind giving me a few days to wrap up a couple of loose ends and leave feedback for people I'd appreciate it.
Me:
(Note that I have edited the message below, due to language)
That's bullsh*t, though, man. I mean, you were a staff member for a while. You know the rules and you know how huge a deal multi-accounting is to us. You could have just PMed one of us to ask what you could do. I mean, we have the ability to actually change people's User IDs. That you started using Elliot, instead of John, makes it look more like you were trying to escape the negative association with the multiple bad refs you had, man.

So according to USPS, it is still in Pre-Shipment. That's not a good sign. That means that it hasn't been picked up and scanned yet so hasn't actually shipped. He just generated a label.

Or he dropped it off at a post office and they picked it up at the front, and took it to the back; without scanning it.
That happens all the time at the main sorting facility, where I work. I've seen it with things I ship.
