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 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 IM. This transaction has cost me so much beyond the trainers themselves, I am just sick.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~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Name of business: DiaperTraders.com co-ops
Name of business owner/buyer/trader(first and last): Samantha Paige
E-mail address: email@example.com (also uses
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
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.
