I highly doubt he is trying to stiff you. I have done $1000 deals with him and he always comes through. I will see if I can get in touch maybe.
I dropped him a message as well. Let me see if he responds to me and we will go from there. Hopefully I can help you out. We were pretty active trade partners on here.

You would think after the first package got lost he would have used tracking on the second package. I still to this day do not understand why people don't use delivery confirmation. Your just asking for trouble. I will update this thread once I receive the package.

When im trading with most people on here , i dnt use it. I know that if they say their package was lost, that they arent lying about it , because i trust them. In that scenario i would make the trade right with either new cards, money, or sending their end back to them. I think its a waste of money to use it to be honest...ive done prob 400 trades including when the site was down and never had an issue with stuff getting lost. If its a big trade i'll use it just in case something happens, but if its not, and something does get lost, i will fix the situation with the other trader. with the amount of trading i do i think its too expensive to use dc on every trade

I get stuff for my neighbors all the time. I use it, but I find that a receipt from the P.O. showing the delivery destination and date to be just as effective.

DC confirms that the post office got the package and it was delivered. If the postal person - worker type person can not put it in the right box, how is that the sender's problem? I refer those things back to the post office..At least with the DC, you can tell where the package went wrong..at the delivery site, otherwise, it fell off the truck etc etc..
So, not perfect, but the best option other than the $2.50 signature required option..at least for a small trade.
Oh..I use signature confirmation on items and trades over $100..
