     I just wanted to make everyone aware of this BAD TRADER:

                  PETER KVETKOSKY <xxxxxxxxx@xxxxxxx.xxx>

                            PETER KVETKOSKY
                            37 DOLPHANN
                            TONAWANDA, NY  14150


     A trade was worked out between us at the very beginning of September,
where I would send Peter an actual [store-bought] cd and in return he would
make a pair of CDRs for me.  He received the cd, but I never got the CDRs.
After several lame excuses of why I hadn't gotten his package, Peter
finally stopped returning my e-mail around mid-November.

     I should have known better... it's the typical "it must have gotten
lost in the mail" scam.  I'm sure this sad routine is all too familiar with
those of you who have also been burned:

     Needless to say, I never did get anything via UPS... and I'm still
waiting for that tracking number.

     Anyway, I *strongly* recommend not trading with this guy.  Thank
goodness a large majority of people I have dealt with aren't this flakey.
