IN AUG. i SET UP A PATCH TRADE WITH APCO 25 / ALEXANDER TAIT. I SENT HIM PATCHES. I HAVE NEVER RECEIVED THE PATCHES FROM HIM. I HAVE WRITTEN HIM SEVERAL TIME BUT HE WILL NOT CONTACT ME. ALL I WANT IS THE PATCHES. THIS IS THE ONLY BAD DEALING ON POLICLINK THAT I HAVE HAD. SO BE CAREFUL WHEN TRADING WITH TAIT. WHEN HE MAKES GOOD ON THE TRADE I WILL ADVISE. THANKS, STEVE

That's a disgrace...call his local PD and have them confiscate the patches.

This is why I only do direct, one-on-one trades at the time of transaction.  No muss, no fuss..

I have contacted this person and we'll see how it goes.

I second the ban from police link.  I guess you don't know who you can trust these days.

Let's be serious here people their JUST Patches, what kind of a LOSER do you have to be to recieve the patches you wanted from a group member and then not even return the patches requested in the trade!?!?!


Alexander Tait AKA apco25, I am CALLING YOU OUT!!!!


Be a man and respond to why you cheated a fellow member in a Patch exchange deal. Or let me guess you couldn't afford the Shipping & Handling.......

That is wrong on so many levels it's not even funny.  We are supposed to be looking out for eachother out here.  Mr. Tait, let just say this one thing to you ------- Karma is a B&#%@.!!!!!!!  May the fleas of 1000 camels infest your testicals.

To continue beating the dead horse, I must say this shines negatively upon the National Park Service.  Dude....  Send the patches you owe my brother in Virginia. 


On another note, I have made many trades from folks right out of this very group and haven't had issues with anyone.  I mean I have traded off for some really great patches and one badge.  I am not badge tradeless.   Of course I live overseas and it's not like I can come kick the ass of the one who may cheat but like Delta said.  Karma is a BIYAOTCH!


Let's keep the trading up.  I look forward to mail call here every day and seeing the oddly stuffed envelopes with my name on them.  Looks like I may have to get another frame done soon. 


If I have offended anyone, so be it.

This happened to me as well last year by another member on policelink.  I have sent to occasional message but never receive a reply.  You have to understand that this is part of collecting.  The vast majority of collectors out there are great people but every once in a while you will have this happen.

I just sent him this PM we'll see what happens.


If you do not respond your account will be suspended today. You set up a trade and did not hold up your end, this needs to be addressed. If you post again before responding to me resolving this issue you will be suspended from PL. We need our LEOs here to exercise integrity.

I have received a response from apco stating the patches are on the way.  Please notify me upon receipt and/or non-receipt by PM.  For the time being I'm gonna lock this down and allow it to remain between the 2 involved and the mods.
