    I made a trade deal with Russel Freeman on 3/16. I shipped because I had more than one deal going. He did say he couldn’t ship until Friday/Saturday. No problem.
    It’s 3/27 and still has not shipped. The problem is that he appears to be trying to trade the Manix 2 I sent him. Now I find out that he offered the SAME knives that I am suppose to get to another member TODAY!!! Bad- very bad!!

    @Russell Freeman YOU OWE ME A MANIX 2 or the other end of the deal!!

    If for some reason he makes good I will post here but I won’t hold my breath!!!

    Says his age is 18.

    Not sure if that’s true or not.

    Low post count too. You gotta be super careful who you trade with.

    Had it been a Sabenza my approach toward the deal would have been much different.

    I don't know if a moderator has read this yet, but it would seem appropriate to limit Russel Freeman's activity on the exchange until he has addressed this problem. We certainly don't want this to expand to others if it can be helped.
    Just my opinion

    You never sell the items you receive in a trade before the other party has your items and confirms they are fine with the trade. If the trade has to be reversed you no longer have the goods to return.
    Hope it works out for you Mono-we will see.
    and thanks for notifying us

    Nor as pointed out to me do you sell or trade the goods you were suppose to send in the original trade. There is no excuse for that.

    Unfortunately it was more nefarious than that... He offered me knives that were supposed to already be in the mail to @Monofletch

    That does throw it in a different category. I will edit it to a general statement.

    @Russell Freeman has been on today at 3amish. I'm sure he saw this.

    Are you going to comment or have we seen through you scam?

    @Russell Freeman is likely too cowardly to address the issue here.
