"But Mom they were just sending these knives to me for nothing out of the goodness of their hearts, I swear."
I'm really glad that it worked out.
But I do fully agree that he knew very well what he was doing.
It's common sense that a "Trade" or "Barter" is discussing and agreeing to swap one item for another.
His mother sounds like a great woman but also a good mother. So kudos to her for that.
I really don't think James should be allowed on the exchange again because just because it worked out this time doesn't mean it will work out another time.
I'm glad things got settled and hope your knives get back in the condition sent. Which I assume they should. I just hope no one takes the chance and gets taken - or near taken again.
Good one Mom. Hopefully this works out for everyone. veubent could you please remove Mom's name from your post? She wasn't a player in this attempted scam.
"To be honest with you i dont think my son understood what a trade was"
Is this a 3 year old kid???? My 4 year old grand-daughter knows what "trade" means...
Wm. Fisher .... Rochester, NY
I was BORN AGAIN on May 3rd, 2008. No, I didn't find religion, I found RETIREMENT !!!!
James should be summarily booted off BladeForums upon completion of his obligations.I really don't think James should be allowed on the exchange again
It seems apparent he’s under age and was engaged in deception and premeditated Theft.
Why was he claiming to have shipped the knives if he didn’t understand what a trade was?
It’s nice Mom did the right thing and James should be thankful. She seems nice enough so he can still learn from her if he’s willing.
The butcher with the sharpest knife has the warmest heart.
Anyone find out how old/young James is?
To not understand what a "trade" is...................................
i personally apologize for what has happened and hopefully this will be sorted in a few days
Wow, another one for the ignore list....
I have not spoken with anyone by phone. Never asked james his age as I assumed it was 20 from his profile.
I called. Didnt ask. She didnt want me to talk to him so im guessing younger than 20.
I've been trading since I was like six years old.
So I have no idea how he doesn't know what a trade is.
James, are you really 20? I'm not thinking you are.
If you're not banned from trading, I would take a break from it for a while.
Or at least until you learn what a trade is.
My knife arrived today. Thank you jamesk007's mom for stepping in and taking care of this. Hope veubents knife shows up as well.
Wow. International postal fraud is not something I'd want to have following me around forever. As I understand it, that kind of stuff doesn't get chalked up to ignorance. Karma: being a bitch since the beginning of time!
It cannot be correct he does not know what a trade is, considering he has feedback for successful trades.
