So I set up a trade with a member a couple of months ago and still haven't received my half of the trade. On November 29, I was told it would be in the mail the next day - still nothing. Now my 3 PMs that were sent this week have all been read but not replied to.

I got screwed over on this one didn't I?

drymount the secrecy. If the member has read 3 pm's and not responded to them, out the member.

If it's who you were asking about before in a different thread, then I'm genuinely surprised and saddened. :( Sorry lukin. Hit me up if you want to try another avenue of contact.

Agreed.
Sorry to say, your trade doesnt sound successful...

Hopefully the loss wasnt too great.
Sorry to hear, regardless.

To answer your Q...yes.

Same thing happened to me, only with an artist. Sent the $$$, no print.

That was over a year ago(maybe even 18 months)...emailed him pretty regularly in the beginning, pleasantly to begin with, not so nicely towards the end. He replied eventually, promising to fwd the print asap along with other goodies "to make up'...still waiting.He's a liar and a con really.
Thank god it wasn't a lot of money...but the principle is what stings me...the print was actually for my wifes office. Another member on EB was a big collector of this guys art so i contacted him for advice. Seems he's had the same runaround as I, 'kept he eventually got his prints...i haven't.

Infact, I'm now off to wish this prick a F#ucked up Christmas via email.

this community needs people to out people. i personally don't want to deal with anyone i don't already know and that isn't good if we are really a community.

we need some more vocal outers around here. turns out our hobby has become semi big business and our best bet to keep EB safe is self policing.

Isn't that the dude who posted a FS talking about losing his job? Maybe he found another way to make money (just like RATA).

FFS, not again. Sorry to hear about this Lukin. I was pissed off with that guy for not replying to a couple of pms but I'm obviously glad we didn't end up trading in the end. Hope this gets resolved.

And misterx, who is the artist you've been waiting for? I've got a couple of ideas but I think we should know!
this aggression will not stand, man.
