I wish I didn't have to post this, but absent some sort of eBay-like feedback system, I think I must. Mods: I don't like to see these sorts of posts in our community either.

Anyone wishing to do do business with this user should take additional precautions.

If you sell an item:
1) Receive payment first
2) Package the item exceptionally well so that damaging in shipping is nearly impossible
3) Ship with tracking, delivery conformation, and insurance

If you trade an item I'd suggest using a trusted third-party as an intermediary / escrow.

Have you had any issues with this user? I have done a trade recently and it did not arrive even though tracking says delivered

Yes. I was shipping replacement parts with almost no value so I was willing to ship multiple times. All three failed with explanations that just didn't make sense. Further correspondence with the user could only be described as bizarre.

Edit: I removed the judgmental portion of this post.

That's my experience as well. I try to have a conversation and it appears the person is either not paying any attention or they must be holding several conversations at once and can't keep them straight. The trade we did they got their package but mine was marked as delivered but is not here.

Interesting. I felt the exact same way. Like my emails weren't even being read. There were several times I had to respond saying something like "I don't think you saw my previous email so I've included it below".

Edit: I removed the judgmental portion of this post.

A few weeks ago I contacted this person, to trade a Rubik's Rabbits puzzle that he or she was searching, I asked what he or she had to trade it for and was offered a cheap and very common puzzle, so I answered that I only wanted to trade for another rare puzzle. After that he or she kept sending me mails with all silly offers, I did not answer the mails, because I felt this was leading nowhere.

Same thing for me mixr. The person keeps asking me the same questions over and over. By now I have told them what I have in my collection at least twice.

I have read this thread, and know of the user through YouTube as well.
When I used to post videos she would contact me a lot for trades, my often rare items for her often worthless ones.

While I haven't done trades as such, I know she has done some with other YouTubers, when messaging me she often seemed quite rude and persistent even when I said no.

I personally wouldn't deal with her and the posts above seem to support this.

PS Adam, Peters Black Hole isn't particularly rare I don't believe, I have seen many at flea markets/ car boot sales. Rarely in good/ mint condition though.

I'm sorry I don't have any rare puzzles and I do not scam people. I always send my puzzles out when I do a trade.

The replacement puzzle for the one lost in the mail arrived yesterday. I have had an easier time communicating with this user as well.
