Default DO NOT TRADE WITH EBAY MEMBER gratefulday0729!

I was contacted by eBay member gratefulday0729 about trading a 2012 Bowman Platinum Bryce Harper Jumbo Relic Auto. I agreed to trade it for a 2012 Topps Tribute Mike Trout auto. He has 1272 feedback, 100%, sent pictures of the card in the envelope with the tracking, texted back and forth, etc. I did my research on Google and Blowout and saw nothing about him so I sent him the Harper.

The "Trout" arrived today, but it was an envelope with a slit cut in the side and no card. Just a piece of cardboard that says:

THANK A TON!
ENJOY!! PLEASE
TEXT UPON ARRIVAL

DANIEL

He had mentioned during texting that his post office is a piece of crap and stuff that he sends occasionally gets mangled but the 2012 Tribute cards come in a hard plastic case and he included cardboard as well. He said the Harper was for his fiancee's nephew who he raises as his own son.

I assume I'm out the Harper, which isn't a really big deal in the grand scheme of things. I texted him but who knows if I will hear back. Who would be the correct authorities to contact in this situation?

-----------------------------------
His information:

Daniel Stephenson
3336 Oak Meadow Lane
Midlothian, VA 23112

1-804-874-6018
-----------------------------------

UPDATE: I opened a case with the postal inspectors but haven't heard back. After some texting back and forth, the other party on this deal stopped responding. Traders beware.

Id give him a bit of credit with his 100% fdback before I posted his personal info on this forum. So if it works out somehow you have now gave ALL his personal info to everyone on here. I could be wrong he might be a scammer but id give him more than 10 seconds before posting personal info

I'm not complaining nor am I asking for sympathy. It happens. I am just providing information to protect members. He is being cooperative over text. I will post updates when it is resolved.

well one of two things happened

he cut a slit in it before he sent it and never put the card in

or

someone working at USPS cut a slit and stole the card (was it insured? insured packages are targets)

either is plausible

I cannot imagine sending a card like that uninsured, so hoping he did that and it can at least be resolved that way for you.

Your responses get better and better! I admire that you're an outlaw that looks down at the landscape of idiots below you. You play by your own rules, no one can tell you different...it's dare I say, sexy? You must get so many chicks due to your superiority and lack of signs of sexual frustration in your postings

I do suggest laying off the e-roids though, it can cause Internet tough guys to be rude.

Same thing happened to me with a member o here only it was a sale not a trade. Basically you did not get the item so therefore it is not your fault. you never got the card in hand so theres no way it can be your fault. If that is the truth anyway, I have my doubts from my transaction that buyer actually did not receive card. Was it in a USPS bag or anything because that's the first step when usps gets a package that looks tampered with or damaged. Basically paypal sided with the buyer on my deal so im siding with you. Seller should send you back your card and live with being ripped off. It sucks but it was his end of the deal to get the card to you safely and he did not.

EDIT: Atleast you didnt get scammed AND NEGGED. Tarjetasbeisbol for anyone that's interested. block him now.

sorry to bump this old thread, but I just received a message from him:

Hey, I'm interested in this card. I was wondering if you were open to trade or perhaps accepting an offer? If you're willing to negotiate the price with me please let me know and whatever we decide I can pay immediately. Thank you for your consideration. -Daniel

Glad I googled his name, thanks but no thanks

You should do the trade, but just wait until he sends first. If the card arrives with another "slit" in the package, it's proof that he is a scammer.

I'm sure that's definitely the smart option. Just curious if this is a running scam by this person.
