I have sent him six Chicago Wolves' cards in October and never received six cards of Czech and Slovak players which he promised to send. No answer my e-mails...

I have again banned that user. He complained to me using the same email as Derek Johns, who was previously registered as echlcards34 with the email hockeycards34@wmconnect.com. I have tried to ban this person multiple times, but he keeps coming back with new ISPs and new emails.

I also have been involved in bad trades with these two brothers.
On two occasions, was told cards were "in the mail", and only after
constantly bothering them for three weeks, did they arrive. (postmarked
two days before....) And then find out they didn't send them all. They have also agreed to buy cards, then never send $$$$.

I think I saw a post 2-3 months ago from Bean7 warning about
these guys...... Wished I would have listened.
I'm just a rookie, but if you get a card from me, it goes in the mail asap.

As for the rest of you out there, many thanks during my short time here for helping me find some cool cards for my little guy !!!!

Good thing I did not go through with a trade with these folks.

I had a 7 for 7 deal lined up but just had a funny feeling about them so decided I'd wait until I got my cards before mailing theirs out, just in case. Of course, never received anything from them and they never answered my follow-up e-mails. So good thing I held on to my 7 cards.

I've been on here for quite a few years now and have traded with good people all over the world, this was my first near trade gone bad. Hope there weren't a lot burned by these clowns.

Trust me he is worth trading with

Sorry PenquinsFan, but I will go with the odds, and save my cards. Seems there have been more bad deals than honest ones

I just recently completed a trade with Derrick- and it took quite a few prompts from me to get him to mail my cards. He did eventually, though, just to be fair. But I have been burned by other traders before, so I didn't send my cards until I received mine.
Would I trade with either in the future? I'd have to think about it......

I have to concur -- I had a good deal with Carrissa involving a Johnstown set. She does not appear to be Derrick Johns.


March 15th, 2006, 01:00 PM
Thank You So Much !!!i Guess You Got Your Set Then

March 15th, 2006, 06:04 PM
Carissa gets my vote too!


March 16th, 2006, 07:06 AM
No one will dispute there have been successful trades with 'Carissa'.

But trust me.

This is Derrick Johns working with Carissa. Once he/she/they regain everyone's confidence the rip offs will start.

March 16th, 2006, 10:01 AM

Don't be fooled....despite his denials.....this IS Derrick Johns.

Who wants Derrick's and Carissa's home address so that they can persue prosecution of these two scam artists ??????

Yes, it's true. They live at the same address. They appear to be very related, they don't simply "know each other".

ahenrich33 is Carissa Ratosky. I have just completed a great trade wtih her. She is not the bad trader, Derek Johns is.

March 27th, 2006, 01:01 PM
Folks, it's like this in a nut shell. Even if Derek is Carissa or vice versa or even if she is working with him. Demand that the cards you want are sent first if you don't trust them. I have actualy made a couple good trades with Dan Will that way after he was ousted from here. The only reason I stopped is that after we started trading freely again he could never send the right stuff that we agreed to. He at least sent something though. Now if anybody hears of a bad trade with Carissa, then you can gripe about her. I'd be willing to trade with this person if they had something I needed untill I got hosed.

March 27th, 2006, 02:54 PM
Has Dan Will been banned from hockeydb??

March 27th, 2006, 06:50 PM
Wow! This is getting to be like WWF rassling, the afternoon soaps or something. Anyway, I've made two recent trades with Carrisa with no problems and have no reservations about making future trades with her.

Derreck Johns is still at it, still ripping people off. He's using the handle "wjchiefs" at the moment. This is his website: http://photosandgraphs.ecrater.com/

Sorry to bump this ancient thread but I thought people would want to know.
