Bad Trader Thread
« on: January 25, 2003, 12:31 AM »
Alas, they do exist and this is the place to warn others of those 'bad guys' out there. They rip you off, send damaged goods and do not compensate and they make the trading world much less attractive to be a part of. These 'bad traders' do not necessarilly have to be people you've traded with here. Let's make this a place for posting bad traders you've run into accross the Star Wars Fan Site Universe.

I had a very negative experience at Rebelscum some time ago with "Ryjam 282" and I'm not alone. Instead of rehash it here, I'll direct you to a thread or 2 regarding our experience. He's a real doozy and has no respect for the trade code or his fellow traders.

scroll down on this page and look for a post by yours truly (rorworr)
http://forums.rebelscum.com/ubb/ultimatebb.php?ubb=get_topic;f=21;t=003468;p=1

do not hesitate to click on page 2 for more great feedback on this troll of a human being and trader.

Please add your bad traders and lets make the trading world a better place!!!

Just thought I should point our members towards the following thread, where it's been brought to our attention that it's NOT a good idea to deal with Action-Figures.net.  You can read about all the people who got scammed by them here:

Thanks to BigL for the heads up!

Anybody who has been on Yojoe will know what I am talking about here...

DO NOT trade with anyone from the following address:

Philips Ave.
Savannagh (sometimes Port Wentworth), Georgia.
31407

This addy is used by a known bad trader in the GI Joe world, e has been routed out there, and has moved on to the Star Wars community.

I have the exact house number, and phone number but thought it may be against board rules to post it...

Want details, email me or TopJedi!!

BEWARE ANYONE NAMED EVAN GOODMAN WHO SAYS THERE ARE FROM MALTON NEW JERESY.
THis was originally posted by JediMAC from Rebelscum:
"Though I haven't traded with him personally (had contact with him though), we should obviously start with this Evan Goodman "Tastetesta" clown (now posing as both "ImperialRTS" and "TheJediGuy" here in the forums) who has apparently burned a LOT of people at many different collecting sites over the past year (Rebelscum, Jawa, SSG and CSW, among others). He's usually based in Marlton, NJ but I hear he's using some Virginia addresses as well. I suggest you all read up on him since there's far too much info (e-mails, aliases, addresses, etc.) on this jerk than I could possibly post, so here's some links that I highly suggest you all check out:

My best advice is that if someone does not have any feedback, make them send their package FIRST, and only send out (with Delivery Confirmation) once it has been received."

I haven't heard anything about this guy in awhile but from what I have heard about him was he got caught at a couple of sites before the recent incidents in the above post and he took time off and started up again.  So I figured some people may not know about him.

Who ever this guy is (he calls himself "Rudy" and is located in Del Rio, TX), he is apparently a con-artist....I traded him 12 POTF2 figures for about 30 SW Lego figures...after sending mine off, I e-mailed him to tell him they were on the way, and he responded with "same here" and that I should "get them in about a week"...well, that was the 11th of October, and I have yet to see any Lego figs from him...when I tried to contact him to inquire about where they were, I recieved a message that his e-mail was not recieving messages from my e-mail...I have not heard from him since....so, to make a long story short, BEWARE!!! If anyone needs to know his e-mail addresses, I have them...DarthDave can back up my story, as he never heard from him again either after DarthDave suggested "Rudy" ship his items first...I don't want anyone else to lose out like I have...Many others have also been burned, both on the Rebelscum and Yojoe forums...watch out!!  Below is a link to a Rebelscum topic on the subject...

Darth Kenobi this guy Evan is a maniac, i swear i just read the first post a rebelscum, and got freaked out, that is the spawn of satan, i swear it is. :-X


From JediMAC:
Just so there's NO confusion here, Mainland05 is just responding to Darth Kenobi's post above about Evan Goodman, and NOT adding Darth Kenobi's name to the Bad Trader list here, as it could possibly be construed.
 ;)

Seeing the pics of the new R2 with drink trays sprks my memory-

  Ricks Toys

 I made a trade with him a year ago- He got my fig I sent but I never received the drink carrier he was to send me- After fighting with him about it and empty promises he made time and time again I chalked it up to a loss. I see he is again active on other boards( RS)  I would advise to stay away from
. So as far as I am concerned he is on my bad trader list.

*BAD TRADER*= sofa-king,AKA Terry Lee...
« Reply #7 on: April 27, 2004, 05:10 PM »
Do not do business with sofa-king AKA Terry Lee of Athens,Ohio/New Marshfield,Ohio .  We had agreed to trade two of my Saga figs,for two of his Saga Figs shipped USPS Priority w/DC.  We had also agreed to ship around the same time as each other.  He received my figs within 3 days on 3-27-04.  The last contact I had with him was on 3-30-04 and he said he took on too many trades,busy,yadda yadda,and that my figs were on the way.  Well it's exactly one month later and guess what no figs and no response to my emails.  BEWARE of this guy. ::)

That really sucks Ricardo, but don't give up just yet.  Stay persistent and hopefully things will still work out, or he'll at least just pay you for what you sent him.  He's probably hoping you'll just throw in the towel and let it go, so don't give in to the Dark Side!   ;)  I've been involved in a few trades that wound up running well past the 1 month point, but eventually all got worked out, so hopefully you'll have similar luck with this situation.

I'll leave this thread separate for a while so our members can check it out and heed your warning, but eventually I'll probably just merge it into our Bad Trader thread for permanent reference for everyone to peruse.

Good luck buddy!

Just adding the new link to the RS Bad trader thread since the change over caused the lost of the previous link.Bad Trader

When I have time I will also add the new links for the links that I have in one of my above post so others can see them.

PS Sorry Matt for causing this thread to be above the Trade Feedback so you have to bump that one up. ;D

Sorry to hear that Ricardo.  Damn, you've got bad luck on the boards...  Maybe best if you just stay away from the Rebelscum classifieds.   ;)  Speaking of which, you might want to check out this thread over at RS (read through the whole thing, so you don't miss the "fun" part  :P), where there's a lengthy discussion about the propensity for the Theater Edition Luke's bubble to become separated from the card.  For whatever reason, this is a pretty common thing now, and it's even happening on mine a little.  Regardless, yours obviously shouldn't have been sent in a bubble envelope.  That's ridiculous!   ::)  Did you ask for a refund from him?  Did he have any feedback over there to start with?  If not, you should've definitely had him send the stuff first.   :-\

I'll let this warning sit out here for a while, and then I'll probably merge it in with the Bad Trader thread eventually.  Thanks for the head's up on this guy though.  Better luck next time, bud.

- Matt

P.S.  See ya' next week hopefully!   ;)

Ok he left me with no other choice
This is a trader warning about Wai
I sent my stuff 2 months ago  and am still waiting for his to arrive, the first time i got a email saying he received mine but the stuff he sent was returned because of no postcode.
So he said he would sent it again airmail 7-10 days that was over a month ago.
Traders beware.....
Wai if you get in touch with me and let me know whats going on i might delete this post.
The problem with America is stupidity I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself
