We agreed on the price for my figures. He stated that he would use Paypal and then backed out.

Since you are about to get gangbanged on by a bunch of forumites let me be the first. YOU NEED TO SHOW PROOF! Expect to get this post nuked along with your account for a month.

xan; you'll need to save your e-mails detailing the proposed trade, then post them in a bad trade/dead beat thread.

go re-read the rules, or look at some similar threads.
it's pretty simple
good luck

Nice choice of wording on this. Let me guess you are an English major in college?

Snowdog,

Thanks for the info. I have the PM's saved and I will post them.

When you post them, go ahead and post them right here, in this thread.
No use in starting a new one and, since it's a back out, it no longer belongs in the Bad Traders forum.

I suggest leaving him an appropriate reference, as well. It shows a pattern if they do it regularly and, though not a guarantee, it can be indicative of someone who's fishing around to scam people. A ref stating that they backed out of an agreed upon trade is the most effective way to track it.

Your options are negative or neutral... as I doubt you want to leave him a positive reference. A negative will sock him with a -10 hit to his rating and a neutral will not change his rating at all. It simply makes an entry into his ref list. IMO, neutral is best for this, but it is up to you to decide.

I think what this situation needs is some imagination.

Want my help with a BTR or backout? All messages sent/posted should be in CHRONOLOGICAL order. Otherwise, I just won't read it.

This post would have been locked a day ago, but this subforum is relatively new and admin forgot to allow moderation on this forum, so I am powerless *laughs*

Yeah, the OP is a little late on the showing of proof thingie...

Beowulf has it right. I believe this guy is about ready for a vacation.

I guess when Linrandir gets his carrier pidgeons up and flying again, this thread will meet up with the banhammer.

BTW, Eric were you in a happy mood when you posted here. You kind of let this Bartertowner off a little easier than most.
