Ok, I just checked and recieved a refund from her also. The thing that is crazy is that I haven't filed with paypal and she supposedly shipped my items on Saturday. So is she saying that she still didn't ship my stuff. I think i'm more angry now than I was before. She's had my money for over 2 weeks and it will take another week for it to come back to me. What if I was in real need of that stuff? At least I will be getting my money back.

So do you think it happened because of the low prices that it went for? If she's been around since then I would think she could have shipped the stuff out.

I am pretty sure thats the lady that I bought 4 diapers off of. They were in great condition, she shipped promptly too. When I bought the dipes from her they were listed on another board, I had a chance to buy the fuz but I didn't think it would fit ds. But she didn't have the best communication, she never told me she shipped them, but the transaction took place on thursday and I got the dipes on Mon. I would think she was pretty sincere about what happened. I do know you guys got a deal, she was asking alot more for the fuz.

It would have been a deal if they had actually RECIEVED the diapers!

Well yeah, but I mean price wise. She was asking $70 for the ice star.

That's just the chance you take with ebay. If you aren't willing to part with it under a certain price, have the starting bid be your least-desirable-but-acceptable price, or sell it with a reserve.
Guinevere's Avatar Guinevere 03:14 PM 06-15-2004
Exactly, Angelica!

Isn't it illegal to sell on eBay, then refuse to deliver just b/c you didn't like the price the auction ended at? There must be some way to report that...grrr for all you, I'd be happy I got my money back, but darn it, what I'd REALLY want are the dipes/covers since that's what I bid on, after all.

How is she explaining that, btw? She says she "going through some things" and offers a refund, but if she can give a refund, WHY can't she ship the items which technically no longer belong to her? Can you refuse the refund and still demand she ship? What an awful seller!

REFUNDS!!! I haven't gotten any emails from paypal or the seller.Damn I wanted that Ice Star

eta I bet I am going to get screwed because I payed to a different payapl address then listed in her auction

You ladies who got refunds can you ask her about my stuff.She is still not even read my emails I have been sending her.I am getting so stressed out by this.

Holy Cow, that really sucks Jamie.

FH, I'm sure you didn't mean anything with your post about the Fuz being a deal, but that is the "risk" one takes when selling on eBay. Just because she puts it on there and doesn't get what she wanted it doesn't mean that she can renege on a legal agreement. She offered, the buyers paid, she should ship. She shouldn't just refund the money because it wasn't enough. :

I know, I'm probably preaching to the choir. But this just frosts my ass when sellers pull this crap. It seems to be a particular problem with some of the car sellers and their shill bidders bumping up a price illegally. Caveat emptor with eBay. Even good feedback isn't a guarantee that they will go through with the transaction. Although, I think 99% of the folks on there are wonderful.

I guess going to the post office is too much work for her during her personal crisis I just don't buy the excuses, b/c she was bidding on ebay several days after her auction ended. IMO, plenty of time to mail some diapers!!
WhimsyTyme's Avatar WhimsyTyme 05:25 PM 06-15-2004
You've probably already done this, but going back to your paypal transaction and hitting details all of the other persons info is listed i.e. thier full name instead of just thier email or ebay i.d. AND thier addy. Haunting her w/ certified return receipt mail could give you a bit of satisfaction. There aren't many people that like having the PO person come to the door OR having to make the trip to the PO to get the ominious letter waiting for them.

By the way, after having worked for ma bell for seven years, I might have a few tricks up my sleeve. PM me if you need me.

I sure hope this little bit of info helped. This is really just unacceptable .

I can't wait to hear tht you've all gotten the product or the $$$$. :
Full Heart's Avatar Full Heart 05:36 PM 06-15-2004
Oh brother...thats not what I meant. Don't take your anger out on me. I've gotten plenty screwed before buying diapers...to quite the hefty tune as well.

I'm bowing out for awhile. :

MissSugarKane's Avatar MissSugarKane 05:43 PM 06-15-2004
well I don't get what you meant then.She is a fraud and a scammer.Sorry but I am mad I got ripped off and you posting I got a deal is beyond rude.

I do need to get her address because I will send her letters.I will not let this go.That is a lot of money.With ebay she only has her city and state listed.And a disconnect #
campingmumma's Avatar campingmumma 05:45 PM 06-15-2004
Jamie,
Have you heard from paypal at all?
mealymama's Avatar mealymama 05:45 PM 06-15-2004
Three fraud complaints on eBay mean you get BOOTED off. Anyone who has been ripped needs to file a complaint before she has the chance to do any more damage...
MissSugarKane, I'm not sure how you paid... did you select Goods-Non Auction, Services, or another option? As long as you selected an option for material goods, PAYPAL WILL GIVE YOU YOUR MONEY BACK whether or not you have an auction # attached to the payment. It doens't matter... Paypal was around long before eBay bought it, and all Paypal purchases are protected. The only proof they will accept from her is a DC #, if she doesn't have one, too bad for her.
I would suggest that all you mamas who haven't gotten your refunds yet file Paypal complaints sooner than later... Paypal will freeze her funds and give you back your money whether she likes it or not... but if she has too much warning, she may remove all of her funds.

The only problem with Ebay, the items have to be over $25 a piece in order to file a fraud complaint. I bid and won two items and could not file :
MissSugarKane's Avatar MissSugarKane 05:57 PM 06-15-2004
No I have not heard from paypal since I filed the complaint.I went and checked the status and it says they are still waiting to hear from the seller.I just know she will have emptied the money from the paypal account and I am going to be screwed.This whole time I have been thinking it'll work out but now I am realizing that I really am going to be out that much money and I am having an anxiety attack.
mealymama's Avatar mealymama 06:11 PM 06-15-2004
PS~
I just got bad feedback from a seller who tried to charge an insane amount for shipping because the auction ended at the opening bid. People should either post opening bids of no less than their minimum desired price, or use reserves... this seller did not answer email after email asking if she could use a different shipping method, then she left bad feedback, and when I returned the favor don't you know, suddenly she remembered how to use her email account.
Anyway, MissSugarKane, HONEY! I'm a seller, I've been through this from both sides, and I'm so confident you are not going to lose your money! It's such a pain, but isn't the worst part about it that big slap in the face reminding you how crummy people can be

I hope you get a response soon Jamie. Ideally you get your IceStar set, worst case you at least get a full refund.

I don't think I understand "getting a great deal" if you don't actually get a product for your $$ either. :
williamsmommy2002's Avatar williamsmommy2002 08:09 PM 06-15-2004
Jamie, I think she has removed all the money from her paypal account because I'm waiting for the funds to clear before I actually get my refund. So that means she had time to spend the paypal I sent her or transfer into her checking account. The only other time I got a refund it was instant(and wasn't because of a problem). Also, you didn't really get a good price. You paid a bit for that RB shell set and I don't think $51 is the cheapest i've seen an Ice Star go for.

She's had plenty of time to ship and I was very nice to her when she told me she hadn't shipped yet. However I went back to the email she sent me and she said "I'd like to offer you a refund at this time, or if you still want your win/s I will have them mailed tomorrow". Now that I reread that, i'm thinking she would just rather me ask for the refund and she really didn't have the intention of sending my dipes. I think i'm going to email her and ask her why she sent me a refund today when my items were supposed to have shipped out on Saturday.

Exact same thing.I was shocked after 11 days my items were not shipped but I was still nice.Then she offered me a refund or to ship my items out the next day.I don't understand why she would refund you guys and not me

I am wondering if I can contact the police in her city.I mean she is stealing.I wish she would read my emails (since we both have AOL I can see that she hasn't even read them) so she would be aware of what drastic measures I will take to get my money back.
