Rembran

For anyone in transactions with Rembran she is in the hospital with ruptured ovarian cysts. She is supposed to be discharged today and hopefully she can return any messages within the next few days.

I’m not too savvy with the messaging system here so if you need to reach her in an extreme emergency you can email me -her husband- at kevandjenndavis@aol.com and I’ll pass the message on to her asap.

If it’s not an emergency I’m sure she will be able to help you in a few days.

thanks- kldavis

So now mods on DS can tell us just how much we are allowed to sell our items for?

Can we sell these? Posted by: jollygoodANDgreen

Items we bought from participating in a co-op? I thought I remember seeing somewhere that it wasn’t allowed? I was in the pf co-op, bought a lot & now don’t want them :blush:  LMK, thanks!

Re: Can we sell these? Posted by: lovemygirls (senior moderator)

yes, you can sell them….for what you paid in the co-op. :thumbsup:

So how are they enforcing that? Across the board? Or just for items that aren’t GoodMamas? Didn’t we already say that price fixing is illegal?

And just for the record, the OP has one of the cutest AVIs!


Looks like Sam / Scamantha has really dug her hole deep this time… Some how DT drama is showing up all over DS lately.

Just an FYI, Please note that Diaper Traders (www.diapertraders.com) is sending out viruses. My opinion is that my Pop-Up blocker and Virus Software were working overtime after doing some research there this AM. Please don’t log in/visit over there unless you have the proper protection 😉

I’m out $434.30, I know many others out even more. We need to work together to stop this, she clearly won’t stop on her own.

IMO people have to buy online stuff with credit card paypal, not with funded. Let your credit card company chase her.

Today’s date: October, 11, 2008

Basically Sam approached me via yahoo instant messenger and asked me if I was interested in doing a trade for web work/advertising because she needed trainers for her daughter. I was very busy planning a big move but I saw it as a good investment so I agreed. We worked out the details and  on July 15th I posted pics of the trainers in a thread on diaper traders  http://www.diapertraders.com/vb/showthread.php?t=61635 (I deleted my DT photo album so the pic doesn’t show up now). I shipped the trainers to Sam on July 17th with tracking number http://trkcnfrm1.smi.usps.com/PTSInternetWeb/InterLabelInquiry.do?origTrackNum=9101150134711305716976 it was delivered to Sam July 21st 2008. I was dealing with my move and did not get back online until September 25th 2008. I have not had any contact with Sam at all. She has not answered PMs on DT, emails nor yahoo IM.  This transaction has cost me so much beyond the trainers themselves, I am just sick.

Name of business: DiaperTraders.com co-ops
Name of business owner/buyer/trader(first and last): Samantha Paige
(co-op host)
E-mail address: samantha@diapertraders.com (also uses
co-ops@diapertraders.com, spaige@surewest.net)
eBay user ID: N/A
Date ordered: Paid for items in the co-op on July 14th
Products/services purchased: This was a co-op run on her board,
DiaperTraders.com, for Bambu Kitchen items
Price paid: $523.69 USD
Estimated turn around time: As it was a co-op, there were no hard
dates, however, two weeks to get from the company and then would
expect the host to be able to ship within about a week.
Actual turn around time: To get to the host, there was a delay in
ordering which we weren’t informed of straight away and excuses as to
why the company couldn’t receive her order. It was over three weeks
before the company shipped (Aug 6) due to these delays. It was over
four weeks by the time it got to the host (Aug 13th). She then
promised to have things organized and shipped in the next couple of
days, only a few orders were.
I was promised again and again and again that my items would be
shipped. Mine is more complex as I’m international, I asked for a
quote for USPS w/ tracking and insurance due to the order size and was
suggested to go with UPS. UPS is a huge issue coming into Canada so we
agreed on her shipping to the board UPS store for me to pick-up. It
took over three weeks before it was shipped (Sept 4th).
Was product as expected? Mostly. The out-of-stock items weren’t there,
as expected, however, this is another issue as it was weeks before the
list of out-of-stock items was listed.
There were several other items missing as well for no particular
reason. As a result I was owed a refund for the items not received as
well as the shipping to host paid up front (20%) plus there was 5% of
the items received as shipping to the host was only 15%.
If not why?
Did you contact the person about the problem(s)? Many, many times,
through private messages and on diapertraders.com One thread after
another that discusses this and the issues I have, along with others,
has been deleted. If anyone starts to get upset about being out money
or items, the post or thread gets deleted.
If so, how did they attempt to resolve? I had a paypal claim in and
she got plain nasty about me trying to scam her. Paypal indicated she
could send money back to me while the claim was there, I called them
twice. She indicated that paypal told her they couldn’t. She accused
me of being the reason she couldn’t refund anyone else. There was just
over $37 in her account in the end, not even enough to reimburse me my
$108.
The overall communications skills through this entire thing were
pathetic. We got at best one sentence updates that left out the
details required. Many in addition to myself are out money still. If
we ask about refunds we’ve all been spoken to very unpleasantly.
Would you do business with again? No way in heck. This is so far
beyond ridiculous I don’t know what to day. I had participated in
quite a lot of co-ops on DiaperTraders run by other hosts and had
great experiences. I didn’t think twice about doing a co-op with Sam
since it was her site, boy was that a mistake.

Where can I post to warn about a wahm that has a history of doing chargebacks…fraud
I certainly DO NOT want to get into any trouble, but is there somewhere here that I can post about a wahm that did MANY chargebacks on people here and another forum I go to….Well, she has a Hyena cart now and has instock customs available and this wahm SCAMMED SO SO SO many mamas. There was even fraud charges filed against her….I emailed HC about her and I feel like she is going to do this again. I can’t just sit back and let it happen. This was last year but we are talking over $1000 of scamming! I left feedback here, and the Juicy apple report and there was even a yahoo group about her. But that was all last year….so it’s really old and not fresh in anyones minds….Gosh this sucks, I hate to think that she could do this again I that there is no where I can get the word out. Even if I can do it with out “outting” her HC …… please, what can I do? 😥 I just KNOW she is going to do it again….. I know it.

We are trying to get rid of whatever it is that got through the filters and comments like this are not helpful. It’s your choice to come to the site and we are doing everything possible to make it run as smoothly as we can.

Thank you for understanding.

What you need to know is that we have been receiving many PMs and comments attacking us for what is happening – blaming us as if it were our fault this happened. After so many comments, it starts to get annoying.

I know that shelling out $100 is a lot of money! I don’t even have it should I need to use it. But again, consider the cost we have of repairing the damage done to our servers and forum. Consider the hours we now have to spend reverting to the state we were at. People fail to realize that this probably affects the board owner, and admin a whole lot worse than the members.

I am sympathetic to what our community is going through and I would never in a million years consciously allow something like this to happen on purpose. So, forgive me for my mean comment and please have a little compassion for what we are dealing with at the moment.


4oz wool yarn plus matching trim! (http://www.diaperswappers.com/forum/showthread.php?t=568913)

4oz wool yarn plus matching trim!
The yarn is from Family Pendragon Yarn and Crochet on Hyena Cart. This is her description from this yarn
“This is 4 ounces plus trim of what was supposed to be Aran BFL. Upon washing and dyeing it appeared to me that the colorway skein was either Bulky BFL or Gaia Bulky Organic Merino. The trim is Aran BFL. I see a very pretty soaker or newborn longies out of this pretty new colorway “Antique Roses” featuring soft apricot, pale rose pink, and buttercream.”

This is her description on for the Gaia as she doesn’t have a description of the other one. :headscratch:
“Gaia Organic Merino Bulky – 100% organic merino yarn, bulky weight, 4 ounce skein / 153 yards. Gauge: 3-4 sts per inch, 10 wraps per inch, needle size 10-11. A very smoothly plied, bouncy and well-defined yarn that is virtually free from any debris. . Takes dye in a softer, lighter, and often warmer way. Always a customer favorite and dreamy to work with!
$22.00 per 4 oz skein “.

I was going to try to crochet shorties but now that I’ve done some practicing on basic crocheting because it’s been awhile I’m afraid I’ll just put this pretty yarn to waste 😥

Her minimum fee for 4 oz of yarn is $22 so I’m asking $22.00PPD Which is like getting the trim and shipping for free 🙂 They’re brand new, I just got them in the mail and still in the plastic baggie. I’d just rather get something I will use since I’m too afraid of messing up the crocheting. :giggle2: I will trade for things on my ISO list.

Congratulations, I was wondering who got this, I entered for it too!:)

Re: 4oz wool yarn plus matching trim!
I’m going to get more from her later when I get more practice in… or maybe I can convince my grandma to make something for me…. I’m just sitting her looking at it going it’s SO pretty I don’t feel like I could do them justice 😦

Re: 4oz wool yarn plus matching trim!
wasn’t this yarn from a FFS lottery? :headscratch:
usnavypride 10-08-2008 02:03 PM

Re: 4oz wool yarn plus matching trim!
I did not get it through the diaperswappers free for shipping section so do NOT imply that, I got it on hyena cart. There are no stipulations on hyena cart what you do with the items you purchase or win in a lottery. I really think it is none of your business what I do with my items. Any items I have been blessed with through diaperswappers FFS section I have marked as such so that I will not resell them, the ones that are still in good condition when we are done with them will be passed on to miraclediapers. However those from hyena cart are not being FFS’d because of need (even though we are in need), they are so the sellers can allow people to try out their items and so they can build up their feedback. PLEASE stop being nosy and keep your nose where it belongs. If you don’t like an item I’m offering then just close the window.

:thumbsup: Do your thing. I do want to add that Melissa at Family Pendragon is an AMAZING wahm with the best customer service
I have experienced. It was very generous of her to offer this item FFS, especially now when they are in need and raising funds for another baby. :goodvibes:

I never said anything bad about her. In fact I think she was really nice and the yarn is pretty. I’ve already recommended her to quite a few people. *shrugs*
Who knew craft supplies could be so entertaining?
