    The house is now condemned.

    Meaning, they shut down operations a few days ago. Couldn't keep paying their overdue bills.

    Their site was still in operation last night. I bought two DVDs, which I probably will never see now...

    I had a credit balance at Switchouse. I checked with my bank and SH did transfer funds on Feb 6.

    I had about 7 agreed deals that were pending. I didn't send yet so now I have no idea where to send these titles to!!!

    Why would they close down WITHOUT WARNING ANYONE

    I posted a similar thread in the After Hours forum. I'm REALLY annoyed that they wouldn't at least inform their users that they were going offline!
    If anyone finds out the specifics, please post them here. I really dug that site! [​IMG]

    Just got this email:

    The Switchouse.com site has closed effective February 13, 2002. For

    similar shopping and selling services, we recommend you visit Amazon.com.

    Amazon, in their Marketplace area, offers a thriving market for buying

    and selling used games, movies, music, books, and more. We hope that

    you will take advantage of their great prices and continue buying and

    selling on Amazon. Go to Amazon now!

    For those of you who do not have contact details concerning recent

    transactions, we will be sending you the details of your current

    transactions, so that you and your transaction partner can fulfill your

    deals. We have cancelled all proposals and negotiations for members

    who had not agreed to a transaction.

    Thanks for all your support,

    The Switchouse Team

    Bottom Line: Amazon bought 'em.
