    I am not really sure where this goes but...

    I was buying a cybertron Metroplex from him. He got banned.

    I don't know how to contact him. I got everything ready with some other people's checks. I don't if I should still mail the check to him, since I am not sure if he still has it or not. Even if I get ripped off, I can't really report it since he's already banished.

    Also, on a sidenote, where is the forum's rules thread? I never saw it.

    Rules are found at the top next to User CP, right above the TFSource ad

    I personally wouldn't send it, and I've dealt with him before. Just one of those things... He may be mad for being banned and could decide to rip you off to spite the forums as a whole. Or he could be completely legit, but I wouldn't risk it.

    Just my $.02

    I'd just sit on it myself. If the guy wants to pursue it, he'll contact you. Otherwise it's too risky...

    While we cannot discuss action taken on other users, I can tell you he was not banned for screwing people over in trades.

    Since you have his address... Maybe send him a letter asking if he still plans on going through with the deal and ask for an email address to contact him at or something (or provide yours for him to contact you at)? Worst comes to worst you're out a stamp (seems like a good trade off... $.41 to make sure you aren't out whatever you agreed on paying).

    Yeah, I would have given him my info if I knew this was going to happen...

    This sucks...the metroplex was sort of a steal...

    I got his paypal address. But I don't have paypal myself.

    Well, his paypal address is almost certainly his email address, so just shoot a regular email to that address, chances are he'll get it.

    I shot one out earlier today. Nothing yet. I'll wait a day or two. If not, then I'll send a letter.
