". The Story: I was contacted by this user after listing dior jeans for trade.. I was looking to size down. Since avalemik sells in this forum frequently I had no reason to suspect fraud and foolishly agreed to ship the jeans with tracking info last Friday (as was told he would do the same on Friday). Later that day, I was told that he did not have time to ship them on Friday and that Monday they would be overnighted. You know the rest of the story, the jeans were delivered to him and of course he never shipped mine. After confronting him regarding this, I was told "unfortunately we never entered into a legal binding contract" and that the address he gave me to ship was not his and that he just stopped by a random house and met the postman. Please feel free to read the log at the bottom with the complete conversation. ***UPDATE*** Thanks to the members of this forum the stolen item has been returned to me. I'd like especially thank ShoNuff for all of his help with this!

Log from incident: Originally Posted by avalemik That's understandable. however im using a free dialup internet service which (netzero). For the signature confirmation i didn't even sign the correct name. I sincerely apologize, and I will tell you I will never do it again. It's a one time thing, which through this forum I realized i invested more time, that i could have been working and purchased these jeans. They're not even in my size, but once again i apologize. Originally Posted by avalemik if you would not like this to happen to other forum members, i suggest a few things. In a trade you should probably buy each other jeans using paypal etc, and thus keeping you much more insured, for that is at least somewhat of a binding agreement. I would recommend requiring references before trading, and probably only to trade to well known members with post counts of near 500 +. Also you should check a few posts, to examine the character, and content of the person. I sincerely apologize, i will not waste my time doing this anymore, although my word does not mean much to you.

Move on, don't invest you will only waste your energy. In the future be more careful, and don't exhaust yourself on this, it's a done deal, you will only further your losses through the use of time and any other resources. i apologize. Originally Posted by avalemik Re: final attempt at contact firstly, i do not even live in irvine. secondly I caught the postman before he went to the door. thirdly the postman does not check identification. fourthly i picked this address out of the phone book. fifthly there are no binding agreements made on this site, you should have asked for a reference with other people that i have traded to. i apologize.

Originally Posted by rioni np, I'll just send them normal priority mail from atlanta which should get them there by next tuesday. Please send me your mailing address and I will get you the tracking number later today. Originally Posted by avalemik my cell phone is broken unfortunately, it is more convenient if we chat online. I am able to mail the jeans at 5pm right before the post office closes. I do not wish to pay for overnight shipping, however if this is a dealbreaker i suppose i will. If you have any other questions feel free to ask, and I would also ask for your address. Originally Posted by rioni cool, want to have a quick chat before finalizing this? I'd like to get them out today if possible since I am gone for the weekend and the early part of next week.
