in nov. a member requested 2 books from me in a bob.  in return, i requested 2 from her.  we both accepted the offers on nov. 22.  i marked my books mailed on the 22nd as well.  she recieved them dec. 1.  on nov. 27th i recieved a PM from her saying that the books were mailed, but she didn't mark them mailed in bob.  she finially PRINTED and then mailed the bob on jan. 12.  so since this was the first time she printed the label to get my address i know she was not being truthful about mailing them back in nov.  i sent her a PM on dec 24th letting her know that i still didn't recieve the books, i got no reply, i sent another PM this week, and still no reply. it has been over 2 months since she made the offer and recieved my books.  she started the offer not me.  what should i do?

i just tried to look up her profile again, and it says she is no longer a member!  so it's kinda like she scammed me out my books, at least that's the feeling i'm getting.

Let R&R know about your transaction and they can remove it from your Pending List. Sorry you got a bad boxer trade. I believe we've all had one or two. Boo.

I have had several of those-which is onereason I am taking a break from Bobbing.  I was able to get  R&R to take them off the pending list.  IF they ever show up, I can mark them received from my list of Bob's. I had one show up after a year!

Sue-maybe the put the box in the car and then forgot to mail it!  I had a non-bob transaction go lost. The lady have given the books to her hubby to mail. He put them in the trunk and forgot about them.  She found them 3 wks later.  Luckily she had marked them mailed since it was a book bazaar deal. I wouldn't have wanted the book I ordered to get passed on to somone else.
