Started this trade on February 13 for my space marine scouts for his basilisk, and we agreed to send them out at the same time...he lives in BC...so the other side of Canada...no problem right? Wrong, he got my scouts on March 4th...which is quite a stretch for an envelope...anyways, he was very communicative, last week he said he sent out another tank on March 10th, and if I ever got the first one I could keep both...cool why not...but still over a month a nothing from the guy, and he keeps saying he sent stuff...and Canada post always gives a tracking number on parcels now automatically, and he will not bother giving me that

Anyone else having any issues with this guy? Guess I'm going to have to stop sending stuff first

Actually just had an in person trade with hoorah this weekend that went very well. We worked out a deal, which he was very generous with, over the phone and met a few days afterwards.

I can say that at no point in our trade did he give me reason to think he was in any way intending to misrepresent the items or cheat me in the process.

As I am also in BC, I can confirm that I have sent at least one package of Warhammer items to someone Stateside for $11 and change through a Canada Post office that did NOT include a tracking number, but this was at least a few months ago.

Sorry to hear your trade hasn't worked out and/or your package did not arrive (not my place to speculate what happened, only contributing my experience with the user).

i keep a file with links to transaction reports for personal records and he does have a previous report with two users mentioning issues. the posts have been heavily edited (both by the mods for personal attacks as well as hoorah to edit his own posts for things that raised questions). before hoorah edited his own posts, he claimed to envy that he shipped his end, didn't hear from the him by pm for a week, got worried, and then picked up his own mailed package which somehow still was at the local post office over a week after mailing. That uncommon set of circumstances raised my eyebrows and is why i remember the report...

I am still waiting for a large parcel he send me ( supossedly ) over a month ago but was not that worried as i am in the u.k however reading all this and thinking what the trade was (a large moneys worth one £250+) i am now quite concerned and may well open a transaction report myself if the stuiff does not turn up this week ( week 6 of the time elapsed since supossed posting)

he does claim that what i sent has not arrived but i have checked the tracking this end wich granted is royal mail and quite bad but it seems to surgest that bhis local poistal service received it over 3 weeks ago wich seem strange they have not delivered it yet and i have passed this info on but he seems not bothered tracking it down his end i know i have done all i can checking twice a week etc this end as i am quite deperate to get my £250+ worth of stuff

can anyone help and make any surgestions how we can sort this mess out

cheers sbu (10 pos trades and counting first bad encounter)

I'm in a similar situation.

I traded some AOBR parts for a bunch of Chaos Maurader bits. This was back on February 20th. I asked him for an update on the 10th of March, and he claimed he hadn't received anything yet.

I'm willing to wait for a bit longer, due to trading across the border, but things like this are making me a bit worried. It's not the first time I've been screwed over, but it will probably be the last. Sadly crap like this has really put me off trading all together.

getting packages from the US usually takes around 2 weeks, but still...from one province to another doesn't take a month sadly, at one point a few weeks back he was going to call me, but that never happened either

i'm surprised the mods haven't chimed in on this so far seeing as this is a new user with multiple problem trades and no successful mail trades (albeit one in person but thats a whole different ballgame when you're trading that way). since it appears several people have had problems, i'd probably recommend that one of the canadians (perhaps the OP?) coordinate the efforts since it'll be cheaper for them to call.

blackclaw seems to have the phone number from his post... perhaps you can get it from him or he might be willing to call on the other dakkites behalf instead.

i have had the same problem, i sent him about £100+ of orks, and they arrived in a week to him. i then realised that i had missed out some of the order, and while trying to resolve the situation, a friend pointed out that it had been over 3 weeks since he said he had shipped his end of the deal. i am getting fairly suspicious and would quite like my stuff back, or what he promised to send me

well correct me if I am wrong but it seem this gent is comminting mail fraud on an international level. Definetly somoene I will not trade with. I can say however the few times I have got something from canada (bits/zerkers from ebay) they have gotten here in less then a week.

Unfortunately, we have been keeping an eye on this user but there wasn't enough definitive evidence until now. I had personally been hoping that, given the prior transaction report, people trading with him would ask him to ship first to be safe. I know the search function has not been working well (from what I hear it's one of lego's top priorities to get it back again, but it's not easy) but once it is back up and running, searching for a transaction report about a user is one of the best ways to figure out if you should be wary / ask a person to ship first.

We will have to consider what to do in the interim while the search function is still spotty... if you have any ideas, please PM me or post up a thread in Nuts & Bolts.

That said, we will leave this thread open for people who are waiting for items from Hoorah in the hopes that he will follow through. If not, this is his third strike and he will not be able to continue trading (or posting) on Dakka.

Blackclaw, given that you met with Hoorah in person, if you have more personal information that could possibly help people trying to recover what is owed them (such as a phone number) please PM it to me or to the users involved.

As always, please only post here if you are involved in an outstanding trade with Hoorah or have helpful information to add. The posts so far have been very helpful and on-topic... let's keep it that way so that the people missing goods have the best opportunity to coordinate their efforts to get in touch with Hoorah and get what is owed them.

the items i sent wich toitaled £200 plus i sent tracked but the problem from the U.K side is that they only show as being delivered to the recipiants local mail depot and not like inside U.K were the recipiant has to sign and contacting peoplelike this overseas is ni on impossible and very costly were possible

any help our canadian brother dakkers can lend and keep us in the loop (think there are 2 of us from the U.K getting shafted looking at the tread ) wouls be great

hope we can sort this out but alsa i feel that all i am going to get out of this is a very expensive lesson on trust managment

hope to hear from you all soon

I've sent each of you a PM requesting a list of exactly what you sent to Hoorah. I'm researching something and it could be very helpful...

Note: Please keep comments in this transaction report related only to trades with Hoorah (I know there is some overlap with sbu, but please keep that to the separate TR). Thanks

Update: I have been communicating with a user who contacted me via PM. He was concerned that items which Hoorah sold him (and followed through on sending) may have been from the traders posting in this TR. Hence my PM'ing each of you to ask what exactly you sent to Hoorah.

It seems that these are the results of that inquiry:

WillyBRags- Your items were not traded/sold, so presumably Hoorah still has them
dahli.llama- Your items were also not traded/sold
WAAAAGGHH-god- At least some of your items were traded/sold to this user.

WAAAAGGHH-god, I believe this user will be contacting you soon via PM to see about a resolution. The problem is that the user paid for the items, so they cannot simply be "sent back"- or it would simply be a case of swapping who is ripped off. But I think the two of you will be able to work something out.

WillyBRags and dahli.llama, unfortunately there is no development regarding your items. No one has been able to contact Hoorah, it seems he has cut and run. I do want to point out that the value of your trades was comparatively small compared to WAAAAGGHH-god's. That does not make it "OK" by any stretch, but perhaps less of a hit if you are unable to contact Hoorah.

So that is the result of what I was looking into. Please PM me if you have any questions.

Yea it sucks, but the scouts were just something additional with my space wolf box sets...so no big deal, wife is making more of a stink about it than I am, just sucks getting screwed out of stuff 50% of the time on here (2 out of 4 trades..the other bad trade I had to email his mother to get my stuff), but that's the risk I took, if I ever see him on another trade site I will make a dummy account and see what I can do about passing the guys info around to those who need it

This transaction report in particular is what prompted us to make a sticky listing past transaction reports, as seeing his responses in the prior TR may have warned potential traders... and with the search function being flaky, it was nearly impossible to find.

Hoorah is obviously not following through on his trades or making any effort to resolve them, and as a result he will not be able to post on this site anymore. If people need to get in touch with him, they will have to do it through outside means. However, given the fact that he has not responded at all for the last 3 weeks, this was already the case.

It seems that he has cut and run at this point and there is nothing further to update regarding Hoorah. I am going to lock this thread for now, but I would ask that WAAAAGGHH-god PM me with any developments on his end, as it seems he may be able to come to at least a partial resolution for his missing items (albiet not through Hoorah). If anyone else has additional information to add, please PM me and I will unlock the thread.
