I have checked - the user name is perfectly the same as on geocaching.com. Thru PGC Dashboard - typing in the name takes me to the correct profile page on Geocaching.com, but on PGC Profile stats it responds: Profile XXX not found (names are case sensitive)

Very weird..

related to an answer for: User not found Even though the User exists

Have your friend opted out of sharing their information with API-developers? It's a setting at https://www.geocaching.com/account/settings/authorizations and it would cause this behaviour.

Wonderful, thanks for sharing. I will check with him.
Meanwhile, on my c:geo app I do see his activities on "Friends" tab. If this requires the same API permission, then this might not be the case.
Will come back here soon :)
C:geo is a webscraper and does not use the official API so I would still guess that this is the problem. :)
