Sounds about right to me… but maybe I am getting cynical from all the scamming?

Wonder who the WAHM is? Seems like she is avoiding/giving the run around…

It saddens me to post here, but I need feedback on this situation.

Hi mamas,

I am in the middle of a transaction that is not going well. I want to state up front that have very little tolerance for sellers who do not follow through on a sale as promised. I have very few feedbacks here b/c I mostly purchase through HC.

The seller is a WAHM with around 80 feedbacks, all positive. She has a HC, too. This transaction is occurring on fsot.

Here is the timeline:
Mon 11/10 @ 9:45pm: I PMd a question about the item.
Mon 11/10 @ 10pm: seller replied and gave her pp addy (which I hadn’t asked for). she also said she’d mail the next day.

My LO woke up and needed me, so I had to close up for the night. The next day I got on DS at noon, noted that the yarn was still fsot, and sent the money.

Tue 11/11 @ noon: paid.
Tue 11/11 @ 12:15 pm: PMd seller to tell her I’d paid.

No word for a week, no PP email with DC.

Mon 11/17 @12pm: I PMd seller to ask if she’d mailed it and to ask for the DC.
Mon 11/17 @ 12:30pm: seller PMd back w/big apology and explained she was having family issues but would mail that day.
Monday 11/17 @ 12:40pm: I PMd her back with my sympathies and asked her to mail that day and send me DC.

Tue 11/18 @ 12:45am: seller emails me to tell me that my pp didn’t give her my address and she needs it to ship. I had paid myself (I have two pp addys) the day before, and the address showed as it should, so this sounded very odd.
Tue 11/18 @ 12:45am: seller PMs me asking me to check my email.
Tue 11/18 @ 9:20am: I emailed my address.
Tue 11/18 @ 9:30am: I PMd her my address and asked for the DC.

Wed 11/18 late evening: seller puts more items on fsot.
Wed 11/19 @ 5pm: I asked again for the DC via pm.

As of this posting, I have not heard back from her. She was last on at 3 PM yesterday afternoon.

I will be contacting her this afternoon.

Here is what I am proposing.

1. I want my money back. She did not fulfill her part of the deal and I don’t want to do business with her. If she gives me my pp back in the next 24 hours, I will leave no feedback.

2. If she contacts me with a DC in the next 24 hours, I will leave neutral feedback, commenting on the lack of timely shipping.

3. If she does not contact me, or says she/her DH/her cat mailed it with no DC, she will get negative feedback and I will file immediately with pp.

I am a nice person and don’t want to be a witch, but I don’t really have the time, money, or patience to spend my pp on something that isn’t even going to be sent when promised.

I welcome feedback from everyone, please.

    I don’t get pissy until after 2wks goes by. However, the seller twice said she would mail and didn’t, so I think the buyer is justified in cutting her losses and getting her money back ASAP.

    Anyone figure out who the WAHM is?

    Umm…..your stuff must be horrible if you need a disclaimer like this:

    I am not a professional seamstress and will never claim to be. I do strive for perfection, but not a machine. If you expect absolute perfection, please buy retail (which you may not even get it there)! This being said, all sales and trades are final. No replacements, refunds, or exchanges will be made unless there is a problem with the function of the item. If you are not happy with your item and I can not help you in any way, please feel free to sell FSOT. Thanks!

    and as a “tester” – enough to scare me away!
