Listing a name by itself is not really helpful. If you're going to call someone a bad trader, give specific and factual reasons why.

What will this list do? If we get matched up with a 'bad user' are we just supposed to request to cancel the trade and cross our fingers?

Its too bad you're still a prick with a stupid gimmick.

It can be useful if your game is matched with a bad trader. I had an experience where I sent a factory sealed game and the trader that received the game told Goozex that the game was sealed, but the disc was replaced with a bootleg copy of Resident Evil 1 for the ps1. It was a bogus claim and if I had information before the trade, I could of not accepted it.

There are cases where the list could be used to ask for a cancellation of a trade because the trader is known for taking a long time sending games or doesn't send games at all or sends damaged games.

I created this thread because there were some folks in the eBay Blocked Bidders thread that thought this might be helpful.

Ok, no offense to you, just curious since Goozex is much more automatic in it's matching process, I didn't see much use in the list. Maybe someone will find it useful.

Oh, no offense taken. As I said, it was discussed in the other thread and me and another CAG thought it could be useful. Totally not trying to slam anyone or hurt anyone's reputation on this site or Goozex. I have seen tabs on Goozex for blocked users, but I don't think they are functional yet. I definitely think it is something they need. I forget sometimes who I have had bad experiences with and that information could be useful if I am matched with them in a trade (as the person who is sending the game mostly).

at least you could be aware of those you should be watching out for. even if the system is automated, you can still contact goozex and refuse the trade. why do cags have a list for bad sellers and bidders? same goes for bad traders on our trading forums. i know they're not automated like goozex.. but its for the same purpose.

Would that work? I could contact Goozex after being matched for a trade and ask them to cancel the trade because I heard through the grapevine on a message board that the user could possibly send me a game in bad condition?

im sure they are working on changing the automated pairing system. because obviously theres always a risk of getting a games from douchebags. im certain that you can just point them to this thread and they'll put 2 and 2 together and make the right decision to your favor. if they cant help you, then we should trade our games elsewhere

I sent a couple of 100 point disc-only games on goozex wrapped in their paper mailer template. does that make me a bad trader? It is one of the recommended ways according to goozex.

I think that what you need to take away for this is that the goozex model doesn't really work. They spent too long giving away 100 points to everyone who signed up that they ended up with a lot of scammers. I got out a few months ago, and recommend that everyone else do the same.

I have already used the list to cancel a trade. You also have the option to ask for a cancellation (that is up to the trader though).

As a seller if you are paired up with someone, that this post has in essence flagged, you can put yourself back in the queue. You might have to wait a little bit longer to ship out your game, but at least you won't have to worry about dealing with the hassle of a scammer. If your receiving the game as thebob101 said

You also have the option to ask for a cancellation (that is up to the trader though).


Thanks OP.

Heh. I could triple the length of that list just with my own experiences, but I don't know that it's necessary. Goozex has always taken care of my in all of the situations mentioned in this thread. I don't really care if a user ships a game or not, as long as I get my points back and I'm put back in the same place in line.

I agree that goozex has a pretty good policy regarding refunding points, but unreliable users slow down the trading system. I know that I'll be checking this thread in order to avoid dealing with crummy goozex users.
