I had some dealings with him and would never trade with him again. It turned rather ugly, he basically tried to extort a refund, without returning the item.

EDIT: I see that whole fiasco has been posted. I think it speaks for itsself. Good luck,
We never traded here, it was an ebay transaction and I did not know  that you were a member here
so we never had any deals here in the Arena and  never will .
The nerve of still denying your FAULT,...........some people ,I tell you ... :)
and by the count on your transactions I guess not many people do  ......for a obvious reasons .

I'm not going to justify a reponse to that. I was replying to the op's question, that is it.

Just keep it to yourself since it does not belong to the Arena
 it was not an Arena transaction at all
remember that you tried to leave a negative feedback here and it was removed by mods ???
so refrain from referring to it as it was something within the  Arena . it was an ebay transaction and it was settled there .

Do not   bring old dramas that do not belong here .

Wong-- it does belong here. People ask for adivce on ebay, etsy all the time. go look at the header on the forum wher eit reads "Help with your Trades, Sales, and Auctions, including ebay" And you were the one that started that thread in the first place. The op was asking if anyone had problems with you. I did, and I stated that. You're the one that's dragging it out.

This is my last response on this matter.

I am putting a warning out now. If you have an issue closetavalanche then you need to contact a Mod. Loa already put a warning up and it was clearly ignored.

I don't have an issue at all, i was just letting the op know that i had a problem with her trader, that is it. Since I've done that and that thread has been made availible, I won't post here again.

I am surprised to here this, Houston has always been awesome to deal with, he is one of the very few people that pays on time. I have only had very positive experiences with him and without a doubt i would deal with him again. It sounds like a po issue and to be fair I think he is right in asking for a refund, I would to if I didn't have a pony in hand and its not fair that he has to wait along time for this refund. $50 is a lot of money

Answering the original question for this post: I had a positive experience with HoustonCollector72. He preordered a bunch of HT AJs and Big Macs, and my husband bought me one for our anniversary. He was courteous and communicative, and my item arrived in great condition.

I want to apologize in advance for deviating from the topic question but I wanted to comment on the situation.  First, I would encourage both of you to have a little more patience with one another.  These situations are enjoyable for no one.  I am also sorry that both of you are experiencing it.

Thunder, your speculations about what a postal worker would or would not do are very logical.  But we all know that postal employees actions generally lack logic.  They particularly have little to no sense when it comes to collectibles and value.  Their attitudes generally are "this person should have bought insurance, so too bad."  Therefore while it is illogical, it is very likely that someone could have thrown one of them away assuming the damage poor and the value to be too little for concern.  Yes, it is odd for the package to have been repacked and delivered with no notice, but there are lots of temporary postal workers hired on for this season and the care and attention to your mail goes out the window.

Houston - Yes, you have thus far had nothing but positive feedback and it is unlikely that you would tarnish your reputation over $50.  However, you need to also have a little understanding for how it might look.  This community has seen countless members build and maintain flawless reputations for years only to ruin them in one fell swoop.  Your best course of action is to stay calm.

As for a solution, having been in this situation before, I personally think that the right thing to do would be to either offer store credit for the full amount of the missing item, or split the loss evenly.  It was neither of your faults, so why should one of you suffer more than the other? 

I understand this was an eBay transaction, but you are both members of the same community and it is here now.  Neither of you has stopped communication with one another, so there is no need to run off making accusations in either direction.  Lastly, I personally do not believe in every facet of eBay ' s so-called protection, and I would feel awful if it was used on me.

I wish you both the best of luck and I hope that you can remain on good terms after this.

*Shudders* Reading all of this makes me want to throw up.  And I thought my MOC seling/shipping/buying problems were bad.  Never, never dealing in them again no matter how good a lot seems...
