I definitely wouldn't pay the postage due.
Mailman didn't even ask me to.

What do you collect? I may have something to send you. FCB isn't like that.
C'mon guys, are you too cheap to go into the post office and have the item weighed and ask for non-machine sorting? It only cost $0.20 extra for non-machine sorting. Twenty cents isn't going to break the bank knowing what you're sending to someone.
Welcome to the boards. Not a fun first transaction...
Obviously it does not look good, but have you contacted the member to see if he will make it right? Generally PWE's are frowned upon, but there's no mention of the value of the cards (on cheaper cards it is more understandable as shipping costs can make small deals too expensive to be worthwhile). Even assuming the shipping method was a poor choice, find out whether he (or she) is willing to make the situation right.
Also please send me and a transaction mod deals on the trade while matters are being worked out with you and the trade partner. In the PM list the cards and values that you sent and the card and values you were to receive. Also include any other information that might be useful to include the thread the deal was made.
We will get this fixed.
I've sent hundreds of PWE in the mail, and never had anything like that happen. Seems to be bad luck. Though base on the indent they used a top load, I've always used a semi rigid when sending in PWE and of course only with standard thickness cards. I reject the frowned upon comment. Who is going to bubble mail a $3 card...trade just doesn't happen.

Ive sent cards in toploaders, but I use normal sized envelopes, and fold up a piece of paper like a letter and tape it to it so it doesnt slide around in the envelope. So far, so good...
It is a bummer to get damaged mail like this though.
He sent me a free card last week and it was in a top loader surrounded by 2 piece of thick cardboard from a box. I guess that's where the extra weight came from if he was sending two cards. IMO, PWE is ok to send free cards, but any trade I make gets a bubble mailer. It's common courtesy (not a jab at enfeugo, just my MO).
I guess this is where the trade manager comes in handy, no?
