I am not new to this site, but admittedly haven't taken advantage of its true value until recently....Now I am looking into trading with other users as I have a few games that I no longer play and see that many other people "want in trade" How does this work? Am I at the mercy of other users honesty? Is there penalty for not following through with their end of the bargain?

Thanks

I haven't had any problem yet - all my trades have gone well
(some delays) ultimately positive.

Would handle any issues, problems and punishments. Outside of the site there is also scope for the legal charge of fraud/mail fraud, clearly this depends on your local police force (I don't know of any cases where the police have been involved).

So you are largely assuming that they are a nice person and they are assuming the same about you. Personally I'd be looking to trade with active members of the community. You could also seek a reference from someone else they traded with.
