    Tried to trade said he sent his end of deal so sent my end and then said never sent (yes stupid on my end for not waiting on a tracking number first) but after 3 months of back and forth and lie after lie of sending it back or payment still nothing.

    Wow! That blows! Thanks for the heads up. In all the time I’ve been on here I’ve never had an issue with anyone. What an asshole!

    Is that the correct user name? No feedback thread to be found.

    this is probably why I strictly don't do trades. if a trade needs to happen then i'd do a online payment/payment. that way both parties have a way of protecting themselves. it's just 4% extra but it's well worth it.

    I filed the charges not sure what will come of that but also going to file a claims lawsuit as well . I was stupid I know. I've done trades before and even international and dealt with some great people guess all cant go well. Appreciate people following up and spreading the word hopefully to prevent my mistake for others

    Did filing charges against Steven Joyce do any good?

    Luckily didnt have to press the legal end as contacting him though through other contacts helped move things so i got paid for what I sent as he had opened the mib figures i sent. Was fortunate that there are good helpful fair people out there who want to do the right thing to help others.
