I personally don't think this is a straight scam, I think something probably did happen to the kid that he's just not talking about.  Saying he was lazy was retarded and one of the stupidest excuses I've ever heard.  It really takes someone idiotic to want to just take so much money, especially from friends, so I'd bet he's got something pretty serious going on.  Who knows, drugs maybe?  .


I didn't want to be the first to say it but.....   
My thoughts come from very personal experiences...

I decided to make the "paging Hounder thread" into Hounder's feedback thread.  That way new members will always be able to see all the old posts.  I will also sticky this thread till be repays all his debts.

Wow.  Just came back and heard all the stuff about Hounder, and I'm sorry to hear it.  Never made a transaction with him, but here are my $0.02 anyway:

NES systems and games are quickly becoming antiques, if they are not already. Not saying they don't make good collectibles, but you have to approach it a little differently to avoid fraud.

People who collect old vases for example; when they buy a new piece, they usually run a background check on the person they're buying from if the person isn't well known.  They also go through a service that allows them to reclaim all of their money if the other person doesn't follow through.  Heck, before long, people may even be getting their cartridges appraised.  Informally, at least, that's what's happening now when somebody asks about the value of something on these boards.

I see this as part of an evolution of collecting for the NES.  There will be more fraudsters as the stuff goes up in price and age.  Unfortunately, that just comes with the territory.

Sorry again though to everyone who got screwed.
