The admins will handle this as I had this happen with 2 different people in the last year.  I waited and waited and sent messages finally I gave up and reported them after several months.  I am going to take a break from BOB and see if any changes are made in the next year before I decide whether or not to sign up for it again.

What does a person do when someone does not mark the book as recieved.  When I have sent lots of messages and still no credit, and when I looked at her profile guess what book was on there that she is reading.... The one I sent, well my bad get some ink for printer and then I would have gotten my credit, however this site works because of honest people and I am so glad that paperback swap has more honest than not, otherwise it would not work.  Happy reading all!   I am always looking for deals and willing to give someone a deal just ask!

I had the same problem with another member, finally turned it over to TPTB and they took care of it. 99.99% of the members of PBS are good, honest people, but it only takes a few to mess up everything.  But that's the case wherever you go.

I ask that no one respond to this post any more so it doesn't get bumped to the top of the page until the OP edits it and removes the person's name. Calling a member out in the forums is not acceptable etiquette on PBS no matter how upset we are about bad transactions.

If we have a problem with a member, we should report it to the PBS Team and let them handle it. Bad swappers will not last long on the site.

Thank you

I did not sign up again for box of books this year because I have lost over 50 books over the past 3 years.  I will just do deals now as I have not had problems through this method. 

It is a shame this happens. I understand there may be circumstances that happen but at least people should communicate or return the credits.
