He shouldn't trade if he knows he is leaving town but in the same respect you shouldn't have a card on eBay that's not in your possession as it seems you said you did. He is clearly back in town, or was. There are many reasons to be upset but may be important things that held him up. I think this day and age there is always means to drop a quick line but some people are lazy and this is last priority for them. F your good with lazy traders then he may be okay to deal with but if your not a patient person I'd avoid this guy no matter what the outcome.
I will say this, I still believe at the end of the day it's just cardboard stands true. I don't mean it's not important. I just mean be thankful you lost a card and not a child. Have you seen the news today? I don't care if it is a car or a card. At the end of the day what really matters is not made of material. I was pissed when jakelovescards got me. I understand your anger for sure.
I guess what makes me a bit upset is you righting off the rest of us. I can honestly say I don't think I'd worry about trading with you in the future. I'd just avoid you. In my eyes it's just too risky. I did a trade with once78 a few weeks back. I have over 750 trades here. I SCREWED UP big time. I told him I mailed and the DC just never updated. I couldn't figure it out. I called the PO and raised hell and all that. I even got upset that he started to question the location of a card from me cause I have always been PERFECT in mailing. Well a few weeks later I was sorting envelopes to mail some more cards and found one that wasn't empty after all. It seems I knocked it into my stack of recycled envelopes and it never made the mail. He could have easily labeled me as you would have. He didn't though and in the end we both got our cards and he moved on and forgave my mistake. Heck his feedback was nicer then most I get. The bottom line is even the best make mistakes. At least give the guy some time to defend himself. He HAS NOT logged in so until he does he should have a chance to defend his actions.

To be honest Joba, and please don't take offense, you sound like a cry baby. You are basically holding everyone else for ransom until you get your situation handled. Don't come on here crying that "if I don't get my card I'm done with everyone here!". Do you think someone's gonna track the guy down just so they can complete a trade with you? Just stop trading here or put Hittman on block and get on with the rest of your trades/life.

As for saying you know who you can trust by who you've traded with, we'll that's not true. I traded with jakelovescards 6 times and the 7th went bad. I have also traded with this trader a few and always got cards. When good guys turn bad it doesn't matter there track record unfortunately.
I apologize for misreading the eBay comment. I truly hope he comes through. I truly hope he didn't shaft you. I agree two weeks is plenty of time and if he is reading and ignoring messages that is wrong. Have you actually checked the tracking on them? Is he for sure seeing them?
If he is then your in the right no doubt. My concern was never whether you were right as much as your comments about the rest of us. Don't write off the good guys here.
