It is funny because my boss told me that he remembers when we was in a high speed chase with cops on the tv and he saw when he got arrested the first time. Yeah I know what you mean about the roaches. It sucks because my boss buys stuff from him too. LOL. Can not win there can you.

LOL. That is a good analogy.

If for no other reason than every time someone buys something from him, they are enabling the guy and essentially telling him to repeat it. If you don't want him at your store, don't buy stuff from him. :)

Like spraying for cockroaches, but leaving food outside your door.

Yeah your right I really do not think about doing it either. I always say that I do not have any cash on me, which is pretty much the case everyday. Keeps the beggers in downtown Houston away from me or at the gas station where I fill up.

Ahh...so the store isn't buying the games from him, the coworkers are.

I wouldn't do it.

We do not accept the trades because we believe that they are stolen. Who brings in 10 copies of Halo 3 for cash? My co workers go outside and buy stuff from him. It is kind of like those guys that wear trenchcoats and show you the rolexs under them. LOL. Yeah my conscience bothers me about it but I would love to have mario galaxy for 20 bucks or mass effect for that price too.

I guess my mind is a little to simple to understand exactly what this guy is doing. If I understand you right, the guy is mad at "Store A" because they don't accept his trade ins. He then steals a game from "Store A" and walks it over to "Store B" to sell it?

If this is the case, then yes, stealing is stealing. It is against the law and it can come back to hurt whoever buys the product. For instance, each DS has a serial number that is on "Store A's" inventory. If it is found somewhere else, then trouble will follow.

Bottom line, if your conscience is bothering you, I have found it is rarely wrong.

Just though I would open this forum to have you post questions that you want feeback on. My first question is something I have found going on at the video game store I work at. Do you think that it is okay to buy video games that you think are stolen from other stores from a person the store will not accept trades from? My co workers told me that they buy stuff from him all the time and get it dirt cheap. Brand new DS's for 70 dollars, Games still in wrapper for 20. What would you do?
