    After completing well over 100 smooth deals on this site I think I may have been screwed this time. Here's the story.

    Back in late June I agreed to buy a PSTOC from GetSumGame. I checked his refs, and though few they were gtg. On July 14th I sent him a money order for $170 and he said he had his wife send the bat. A couple of weeks went by and I went on a trip with the family for three days. When I came home there was no bat. Here's the confusing part. HE actually pm'ed me to ask if it arrived. I told him no and he offered to send back some money or something. I took it as a nice gesture and said wait a few more days, maybe she sent it parcel post. Sorry, I'm naive.

    The last week of july I went away for another week and when I got home, still no bat. Again, HE contacted me and said he was sending a second bat and I told him if I received two I would return one. He promised to send it himself and give me a tracking number. This was the first week of August and he pm'ed that he sent the bat but no tracking info. Here it is, 8/30, and still NO BATS! Even the Pony Express would have delivered at least one of them by now.

    I pm'ed him twice in the last two weeks but he hasn't been online since 8/15. Clearly, things are beyond scetchy at this point. I will post his name an paypal address later, but it looks like I've been had on this one. Keep an eye out folks...

    Oh Crap, the ole "my wife/ GF sent it out" routine. DON"T involve spouses or S.O's in business transactions. I am making a list of suspect members to deal with, and here's another....this list is getting way too long.:mad:

    He still hasn't been online since 8/15 and I still haven't received any bats. Somehow I don't think he's coming back under GetSumGame again.

    Time to go ahead and post his name just in case -

    If he is off the board, he won't know - and if he is on under another name, he's got some 'splainin to do

    I sent a money order to:

    M. Smith
    300 Liberty St. Ne.
    Fridley MN, 55432


    Note: I had a different person's name listed here but that was the wrong person. Mel Smith is the person I had a bad deal with, NOT the person whose name was here earlier.

    I also just sent him the following email:

    Mel, this is Dan Delgado. I bought a bat from you back on June 27th, a PSTOC. You may remember me as Hotcorner1268 from Softballfans. You said your wife sent one, and it has never arrived. The you said you were going to send a second one and provide shipping info, information you never gave me. That bat too hasn't arrived. The summer is now over and no bat, and you haven't logged on to SBF since 8/15. What gives? Please respond so we can clear up this situation and restore your reputation on the board, not to mention your dignity at completing an honest deal.

    Dan

    Perhaps that will garner a response. I'm not exactly holding my breath.

    Could certainly be the same guy. His location says "Somewhere near a softball field" or something like that. I have no idea if he's in Canada, USA, or Thailand, but I'd like to see him in a Siberian goulag camp.

    Yup, looks like I picked a winner. The thing is, I checked his refs and, even though there were only two or three, he was clean. Clearly he's been at this a while.

    oo oo! Is this your bat?

    It's looking more and more like SUPERFREAK09 may need to become your best bud as he may just be able to help get your bat for you!

    yup, how about one more to add to it. sewyourown finally got his bat back, but it took a long while for the whole thing to get resolved. Honestly, I think all of these usernames are the same guy. Maybe I'm wronf, but it sure seems like it.

    I would guess this is Mom and Step-dad to scamsters Mel & Josh Smith. Give a call and politely point out to Step-Dad that it is HIS address that is going on the mail fraud report.

    WWWWOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWW!!!!!!!

    I Found Him Everyone!!!!!
    My roommate Played Football with the P.O.S, He was a year older than him. My roommate hates him and is more than willing to help out. He told me a little bite so far he is a computer nerd and knows he took every high school computer class. The reckless driving ticket that sonic found, my roommate knew about said he ran over 30 mailboxes on purpose but cops couldn't prove it.

    Tommorrow at our bowling league he said we would talk more and search for him threw his friends from high school
