It sure is confusing because the address you mentioned is the address I have on record for Pam Maples. (I keep a record of all my trader's addresses.)

Thanks for the warning!

Another one you should steer clear of is this guy called dan Giddings. I ordered a Car 54, Where Are You? tape from him a while back, and it wasn't even the one I ordered. It just cost me 12 bucks though ($10 + $2 shipping).

I have a trade/sell list on this board. I've gotten a few replies. If a tape I had wasn't "up to snuff", I wouldn't lie and say it was "A+" instead of "D+" or F; liars have a very nasty way of getting caught up with.

I don't know if this will help, but last year or so, someone tok me and others for a ride selling stuff on a message board and never sending the merchandise. Since I had the address, I found the phone number, and attempted to contact the individual. Through a series of several lies, I then decided to contact the authorities in the city they were from. I called City Hall to confirm the residence of the individual, then I called the Sheriff to inform them that there was an individual practicing fraud in their city. I proceded to the US Postal Service to file a fraud claim. When I called back to tell the individual that the police were involved, I got my money back---and fast.

You all have the address of this person. You all need to contact the authorities in that jurisdiction and start a complaint. If osmeone is taking your money, don't let them get away with it. Find the number in Loudon, TN and good luck.

Dan Giddings doesn't have a website: he advertises in GOLDMINE magazine. Steer clear of him anyway.

I can't believe people are trying to get away with that stuff on ebay! Don't they know they'll get caught up with? Ebay doesn't fool around! I wouldn't want MY privileges taken away. I guess SOME people don't care, though.

I don't have a selling account on there yet (my buying number isn't up to 30 yet), but have come across just one shady one, though, the rest were great! I've gotten some pretty cool stuff on there!

The shady one got p'od at me just because it was my first time buying and I didn't understand the shipping/payment plan; it turned out to be my fault, though. I didn't scroll down far enough and thought the thing in the middle was the payment/shipping plan.

Another one to steer clear of is Christine Thomas. I forgot her whole address, but here is part of it: Flat 10, Portsmouth Hants, UK. The postmark said, "Isle of Wight". She's a real crook!

I didn't send a registered letter, just normal standard and she knows that. Also I'm from Europe and have no proof he got it, I just know he DID.

I sent it cash, just a normal envelope. I know she got it but she claims she didn't and uses lots of aliases. She is a liar and lots of people made the same experience.

With our business, I have many times accepted cash in the mail from customers overseas. If a seller is completely honest, then that takes care of most of the problems with sending cash. Besides, as many of us can attest, sending money orders or checks isn't an absolute guarantee. Incidentally, filing a complaint with the USPS takes a loooong time, and if the con artist has perfected the ropes of his/her trade, then you will not necessarily recover from your losses.

In this case, the problem is not with the sender but the seller. Hind site always 20/20, isn't it.

If you ever send cash I would send it prority mail with a tracking # But a money order is always the best thing to get.

I know priority is much safer and I can track it but I have currently a few trades but I also have to change Euros in Dollars and so I sent most of them normal. I thought these people would be honest enough to admit if they got the money. I've learned my lesson.

Angry !

I've sent cash through the mail plenty of times, but got shafted just twice: that Christine Thomas character and Movies Unlimited. You'd thinka commercial company like theirs would have a tracking number, but they don't. Steer clear of them.

I got two Not the Nine O'Clock News tapes from a place in England called KJW Trading. They're on Ebay. I sent them cash and they came through all right.

I don't know what's wrong with Movies Unlimited. When I sent them cash before, (well concealed, of course) they always sent my stuff, but the last time, 2 years ago, they didn't. When I wrote them asking where my stuff was, they told me they (get this!) LOST my order and for me to send them a copy of the check and they'd send it. Well, I sent cash and I told them that. I never heard from them again! Crooks! Don't deal with them. I haven't since! They could really stand to come down a little on their tapes, too.
