Sucks it took away from my feedback, as I followed through with my end of the trade (from someone who did the same). I can understand that once someone is banned, their feedback is removed, but unless the feedback given by them is fraudulent (like, a lie, or padding, etc), why is it removed as well? Is it because other CAG's can no longer check it in depth (cross referencing)? People that have been here for a while have PLENTY of feedback that you can't cross reference for one reason or another, so that can't be it. Just curious, as the feedback they left was for me holding up my end of the deal, and I did that. If they were selling stuff that shouldn't be sold, I understand the ban & their feedback being removed. I just hate that the feedback that they left for me, that was genuine in every way, is removed . Thanks in advance.
Everyone who dealt with that CAG had their feedback removed, so it wasn't just singling you out. A gentle reminder that if a deal is too good to be true, it usually is, and you shouldn't benefit from it. We can't take the points back, obviously, though the feedback can get removed.
Feel free to dispute the Paypal charge over the transaction, if you'd like, as I see no reason why they should profit from scamming a contest.
I never asked how many codes the guy I traded with had (and his OP certainly didn't say he had thousands). I say the same thing to everyone, "Send me the codes & I will try them out. If they work, I will send payment." I guess it's nice to find that out now.
You might want to think that statement through again, as this was at the top of the banned CAG's thread:
Selling codes each worth 160 msp from an instant win game () back when it was easy to win.
I have thousands and will sell them for only 1.00 each thats 50% of retail price! (Maybe a cheaper bulk rate if you want to buy >100 codes
So, yes, it was clearly stated, in nice bright yellow text, that the CAG in question had thousands of codes.
