I just want to create this thread so everyone knows.

Here some details: we did 3 separate transactions and she've sent everything in the same time after a while. I've got a broken beyond repair dev PS2 (missing screws in the lens mechanism, loose parts caused some damage in transit, it looks like some parts of the lens mechanism are also missing but yeah, as some of you may already know, she's just no into the screwing back the screws thing). Bootleg MVS cart, scratched and crushed $$$ Pink Sweets Limited Edition and damaged jamma PCB due to extremely poor packing/non existent packing material.

I did my part, I've fixed what I could (the Jamma PCB and I've spent many hours on the PS2 with no luck). She wanted me to keep all the crap but she never sent my stuff back and then she just disappeared. Last time she logged in was the 17th of august.

I'm a very patient guy but I won't run after her for a bunch of videogames. I have no time for the drama. There was BIG and now Sammybean, it's sad to know that these days reputation or feedbacks don't mean anything anymore.

I was wondering what happened to Sammybean. Sucks to hear what happened, at least you got the pink sweets pcb working again it sounds like. What did you trade away?

I hope she shows back up and makes things right, but I've gotta say, she was kind of flaking out a bit there for a while - The constant buying/selling, poor transactions, personal issues.

That's too bad, Coryoon. Like I said, I really hope everything works out for you.

Have you contacted her about that? Email? Anything?

When I purchased a PCB from Sammybean, she didn't ship until nearly two weeks after my PayPal payment. Then, to "compensate" for the late shipment, she included a free bonus board (crap game that I ended up giving away, but I appreciate the thought), however she put just a few sheets of crumpled newspaper into the box with no other packaging. This resulted in the free bonus board, which was a double layer PCB, mercilessly smashing around against the original purchased PCB, to the point that when I received the box you could shake it and hear screws and random pieces rattling around like dice in a Yahtzee holder.

I didn't bring it up because I was able to fix and salvage the original PCB ROM board, and get my money back. Additionally, I passed the bonus PCB on as a freebie to a person who will have hopefully enjoyed it. Seeing that this inability to ship things properly or sell in a responsible manner is turning into a wider problem, I figured I'd relay my experience as well to warn future buyers.

Sincerely,

Mikhail

Sorry to hear all this. I've only had positive interactions with her. I hope she comes back to fix everything.

BIG (Chai) ripped you off? When did this happen?

Sorry to hear about your problems with Sammybean. I hope it all gets resolved somehow.

Quite an interesting thread. Just when things were apparently getting 'boring' according to one or two. One of them was good mates with Bean as well describing her as a 'respected member'. Funny how things can change so dramatically. Just goes to show how things can change. Either way I hope it all gets sorted.

2005 members rarely let you down compared to some of these newer accounts! I was right all along!

I remember getting backlash when I got on her for handling the group buy the way she did.

I do shit for a reason.

Yet she fucks up and you guys continue dealing?

Can't protect stupidity.

Joe, you still have that fake pic of her?

Indeed, we should have known better than to question your judgement.
You seem to have some sort of radar for these things.

I'm pretty sure she still owes my brother money from that whole candy cab fiasco. He finally got it all fixed when someone from shmups offered to go to his house and help him put it back together.
