Thumbs down Trev343 is a scammer!

Trev343 contacted me to trade his APDC for my PDR+
I really didnt care to still trade my pdr+ but looking through some of his posts he seemd like a guy really interested in tennis(he has a video too)and especially for this racquet so I said to myself to do something good and forget my lazyness and send him the racquet.
Afer I sent him the email confirmation with an attachement postal confirmation, he sent me this email:

I left my tennis bag with in my coachs office today with 4 of my racquets in it and clothes, I went to school today to get it and apparently its gone. I really dont know what to tell you, but you will get some stuff from me for your racquet or I will send it back. I have a yonex rds 003 at my house and that is the only racquet I have left. I have 75 dollars also in my paypal account, a PSP I am willing to send you, string, xbox 360 games, anything to make up for this because now I am racquetless besides my yonex rds 003. Please do not be quick to leave me bad feedback because I will make this up to you.
It felt weird but I said to myself:"maybe he's telling the truth,it's about a racquet afterall" so my response to him:

After he received the racquet I wrote him this mail:

Two days ago I wrote him to send me a straight answer,he didnt responde;he still entered this site.
I dont think he is a specialised scammer,maybe he's superlazy.I erased words and his adress in the mails to not put him in any danger,it's a racquet afterall,I wrote this,that other persons know what to expect when try to do a trade with him.
tennis practice Federer-Hanescu :)
