Hello all, I hate to do this...but I did a trade in July with a trader in Canada and mailed my games. They were delivered (tracking) but I have not heard or received anything from this user. He has not logged into BGG since either.

I do not mean to slander anyone but I do not want to be ripped off of my copy of Axis and Allies Anniversary Edition (I traded a lot for it). Our messaging pre-trade were very cordial and then he proposed a trade after much negotiation. I do not know what happened to him.

If anyone has any contact info on this person, please pass it on. I did alert Octavian.

I just hope the game arrives and the trader has a good reason to be absent.

could be something serious has happened to this person as they have an otherwise positive trade history (I remember them being in at least a couple math trades). Sadly they only have 1 geek buddy and is on another person's geek buddy list and both are in the USA so likely no one that knows this person up in Canada.

Maybe you should post here the name/address you sent your game to... someone may be able to help locate a phone number for this person with that info so you can try giving them a phone call...

See if you can find any others from Courtenay or Comox on bgg, they might be able to help. It looks as if this addy is on First Nations land, if that is of any help.

What is the likelihood that he is a member of the Canadian Air Force...i.e. the insignia on his name???

Perhaps he is on active duty unable to reply...

no, not yet. I did send another PM. Thanks all for the ideas. I will gladly close this thread (and absolve of any misgivings) if all gets resolved.
