Now, I do not know if he is the owner of the profile connected to this sale, but the owner is suspiciously VERY close to where Dave's listed address is located. I checked the store that is linked to this profile, and came up with nothing in the way of the other cards that I sent or am owed. Hopefully this gets rectified!!!

I am sorry to hear about all of your troubles regarding your trades. Reading your posts on the topic of that guy sure puts emphasis the use of registered mail. I hope all of you folks get your cards back. I am a new member and currently have my first 2 trades underway....I sure hope I don't ever go through what you guys have gone through! Thanks for posting!

The registered mail is a good thing to do, IF the other trader upholds to it. They can easily wait for you to send off, say that they are sending the next day... whatever the excuse, and just not bother shipping. Which is the case here.
Dave Perkins said that he had shipped his end of the agreements, and everyone believed him because he had a stellar feedback and reputation.He marked the trades as shipped, but then came up with the excuse that his Uncle had gone into the hospital and had a near fatal incident. We all felt for him and told him to take his time. Make sure that life was secured first before the hobby. This bode him more time to get things situated for himself, and what happened was he did nothing of the sort. He owes me a pretty hefty couple of cards, and I am on the lower end.
This site is all about trust. You have to build that trust within the community by posting to the boards; commenting on others' threads; sharing your opinion; and trading (expect to have to send first on your first 20-or-so trades) with other members. He did all of that, and then fudged really hard over everyone's trust in him.
I personally want to get to the bottom of this, and I am sure that everyone that has posted on here does too. He is obviously selling or trading if I have found my former card on eBay, and he needs to replace return or honor his trades. I am glad to see the cdnhulk and a few others did not accept trades with him while this was all going on. It is less victims that have to go through this.
Thanks again for your post, and if you have any questions about the site or trading, just give one of the more experienced members a nod. We are always willing to help out!

GOOD LUCK- PLEASE DON'T SIT BACK AND TAKE THIS FRAUD!!!
Dear Sir or Madam,
I'm writing to you today to report the individual below as being the perpetrator of a fraudulent scam involving the trading of hockey cards.
PUT ROOKIEAHOLIC2nd's name and address here as shown on your trade invoice
Mr. (enter perpetrator's name here) has knowingly arranged trades with several members of the http://www.Beckett.com hockey card trading forum with several trades involving individual cards in the range of $100 to $200 USD in trade value based on the Beckett online price guides. He has not responded to repeated inquiries from other victims of this fraud, nor responded to my inquiries directly or indirectly.
In my case, he received the cards I agreed to trade to him and listed them in his Beckett inventory as available to trade.
Unfortunately, he has not sent my card agreed in the trade acceptance nor has he sent cards owed to several other members of the Beckett hockey card forum. There is currently a string of over 30 posted responses from victims of this scam.
All of the above information is available for reproduction on the http://www.Beckett.com site, and I will be most happy to provide any substantiation or proof required to assist you in your investigation or requirements to proceed with charges against this individual.
I thank you in advance for any assistance you may be able to provide in pursuit of this matter.
