Add me to the list of new people with bad experiences.. Although I have had some cool trades so far (not completely done yet, so no TR) but anyways...
OK, this guy hit me up on AIM looking to trade. After some talks back and forth, I decide I'll try out his site (PSPS OC). I ask for his username here so I can check him out.
When I go through his post history, I see a thread where he says he requested approval for the site he agreed to do for me (3604free)
I ask how he plans to do my site when he has already done it. This is what followed
[quote2751878244]AirKat o31 how can you REdo it?
c0dex avellum what?
AirKat o31 woops
AirKat o31 http//forum.freeipodguide.com/viewtopic.php?p=238666&highlight=#238666

AirKat o31 #1 if I werent to check out the people I do business with, I'd be a dumbass
AirKat o31 so you getting mad that I just checked your past posts doesnt help anything here

AirKat o31 and i saw that u said u submitted for 3604free int haty thread
AirKat o31 but above u said ud do 3604free for me
AirKat o31 so I was jsut wondering how u planned to do it again
AirKat o31 some peopel get their friends to do it, which is cool, I'd just like to know
AirKat o31 but for it to be an issue that I check out who im dealing with before I deal with them becaus eof all the scammers around is ridiculous
c0dex avellum yeah my friend was gonna do stamps for you
c0dex avellum and get you an instant green[/quote2751878244]
So OK, I decide to try it. He tells me to do the wine offer which is instant and I can cancel before it ships. Iight cool. I check it out, its a hefty one. 120$.. I don't even drink wine.. so I ask him about it. He says OK if you dont wanna do it its cool but that he was sure I could do it and cancel and get credit.
So I decide to try, and as I'm filling out my info, I see this
[quote2751878244]Credit towards your incentive is applied after you receive, accept and pay for your first shipment. If you have any questions regarding your incented gift, please contact the website that brought you to our order page.

I tell him this, but at that point he's away and his away message says "Volleyball til dark".
OK.. I'll wait for him to return... When he does, the following ensues
[quote2751878244]c0dex avellum did you do any offer?
AirKat o31 no, I pasted that from the site and uw ere gone
AirKat o31 they state right on the site you wont receive credit at an incentive site until you take delivery of your first shipment
c0dex avellum so the trade is done
c0dex avellum ?
AirKat o31 well if you want I can do another offer
c0dex avellum which?
AirKat o31 but I stopped at that point because you jsut left without word
c0dex avellum yeah i said i had to go to my friends
AirKat o31 well yeah, u actually said u were gonna get your friend to do it. so when you bounced without saying anything I figured you would hit me back from your friends to do the offer

So, I don't know what's stuck up this guys arse, or if he was having a bad day or what, but I'd never do biz with someone who acts like this during a trade. High TR or not...
I too would like to mention codex is very unprofessional when it comes to trading.
A while ago he and I decided to trade. I waited for him to green, but he didn't even yellow. I wasn't able to reach him, but about three days later he changes his mind and said he did it for someone who offered more. Keep in mind this is after we confirmed on the trade module, and keep in mind he backed out of the trade [iee633f8afc]without even telling me[/iee633f8afc].
Personally, I find these kind of traders just as bad as scammers.
In fact, these kind of traders usually end up as scammers anyway.
Well this isn't the "Do you have an issue with some who you nearly traded with?" section. It's the scammers section.
Codex asked you to do an offer and he was sure that you could do the wine one. You checked it out and decided you couldn't, so you backed out of the trade, which in turn got him pissed (as it would I). He may have gotten a little too pissed but that's no reason to make a thread in here about it.
Instant greens aren't always "You green for someone and then they immediately sign up and green for you". He might have gone out, but that doesn't mean you wouldn't have gotten your instant green.
Either way, the trade didn't happen so there's no real need for this thread.
