    The ol' "life got too hard" excuse. Wasn't too panicked to make a few more trades. Sigh...

    In talking to others who know him from other trading circles...it sounds like he's done this at least one other time to one other person. So not a one time thing with this guy...

    I hope he follows through on getting you what he owes you...but I'll never trade with him. We all have lives to keep up with and shit that goes awry from time to time. Not an excuse to wait 7 months to follow through on your end of a deal...or at the very least, keep up communication...

    Yep, even sadder that this guy will not be in the bad traders list because the system wasnt used. I need to start keeping my own list.

    OP, let us know when he makes good. Hopefully it doesn't take 7 more months...

    he has sent me a pic with the fed ex receipt and sent me the tracking number and a pic of the box he is sending so I think all is going to be ok with this now. Looks like i should get it on wednesday. Will continue updating. That sucks kbuzz because so far everyone i talked to said he has been a great trader and I was pretty much ready to write this off as a one time mistake. Oddly long and weird, but once nonetheless.

    Instead of FTFY, how about "I have written this off as a one time mistake"? Yeah he delivered but its not someone I would endorse trading with in the future. Just be sure its not a two time mistake. Not lecturing but speaking from personal experience.

    FedEx site said delivery day is tomorrow so I will know tomorrow. He gave me a tracking number and it worked and said package on its way to me to arrive Wednesday.

    I received a box of beer today and all is well. Sent me some real nice extras as well to make up for all the delays and crazy shit. I appreciate the support on here and those who helped me get a hold of Ace of Suds through other means as well. Thanks again and I think it is safe to say that this thread has served its purpose!

    I love it when it all works out, another bad trader shamed into doing what he should have in the first place. Ace if u r reading this you are still on my dnt list. No excuses!
