Whoops, indeed! "Sorry man, your copy of Alien Invaders I sent you must've got lost in the mail."


"Say, anyone interested in trading for my copy of Alien Invaders"?

Leroy is correct.

We did make a trade a couple of years ago. The details are slightly off, but he did not receive his part of the trade. I shipped his game to the wrong city and zip. I did tell him that I would ship his game back....and I procrastinated and never did. I eventually received my copy of of Samurai back as "undeliverable". Other things came up around that time and I pretty much put it to the back burner and "screwed" him.

I'd like to make amends for that and ship you BOTH games. Send me your number on my BGG email so I can talk to you, because Ive made about half a dozen trades on the Geek and this is the only one that went south (well I got screwed myself one time).

I understand that people will be hesitant to trade with me after this. If anyone is stil interested in a trade, then I will ship my games and then you can wait to ship yours until my games arrive.

Please add this person to the Deadbeat/Slacker trade list so that nobody else falls victim to this guy/woman.



Either that, or Leroy should update us if Gary sends his games. If Gary does that, and he's willing to do a "Send first" deal here, he can clear his good name and not end up on the deadbeat list.

Now's your chance to make things right, Gary. Take advantage!


cool

I'm interested in Mutant Chronicles if it is in good condition. I'd be willing to trade my unopened Avalon Hill copy of Cosmic Encounter.

I mailed Gary on the 5th with my shipping info and on the 15th asking when he sent the game. He didnt reply to either and I haven't received the game, so I will put him on the Deadbeat/Slacker Traders! list, found here.

Wow. And I gave him the benefit of the doubt he would make things right.


This is rather scummy behavior, Mr. Swaffo. And you had the chance to fix everything, just like that.

Hope your "free" game was worth being shunned by the rest of your fellow geeks, none of which will be willing to trade with you again.


Oh, and nice form--posting a list trading games (two-for-one, which must've been hard for you to offer since you had stolen at least one of them anyway)--getting busted, you apologize and promise to make things right, then slink away and hope the whole thing blows over without you having to do a thing.


Ah well, you're the one that has to live with yourself.

I think he did, and good on him for doing so.


It's funny, because a week or two ago I was using the direct match feature of BGG to find trades and I saw "Swaffo" as a potential match. I was thinking..."Swaffo...Swaffo... where have I heard that name before? Why is it familiar?"


THEN I remembered.


Moving on....
