Good Detective work from the OP-

The current store is http://hyenacart.com/sweet-angel-baby/ And her name is Therese-Marie. She is also running http://bambootybaby.webs.com/ and http://little-otter.webs.com/

You can see she uses the same diaper in all the site photos (look for the green diaper and pink one, and the blanket behind them).

A quick google search of the stores linked and the DS archived pages brings up all of the following names for her on diaperswappers.

Here are her 3 UNs on DS that I have found so far-

I’m slow, and feel really dumb!

Long story short- ordered 2 “tester” dipes from a WAHM on here, pd by check, since I didn’t have paypal. roughly $20 total, USD- it was supposed to ship from Canada. This was last October- and after many excuses, still no dipes, have been promised new pkg twice, then offered refund if no pkg by XX date. Always excuses, but did communicate, though wasslow to respond. Offer to refund was abouta month ago- have emailed several timessince then, but am now getting no response. Seller was banned on here (but after I had paid- shedidn’t have any neg feedback then)

This morning I decided to send her a PP invoice for the amount she owes- and when I put in her address, it comes to the confirmation screen with her name as “Miki Bunz”. Decided to do a google search on that one, and opened up a whole can of worms- seems this person has several websites- and names, and has scammed lots of people- it even appears she was leaving herself positive feedback on here all along, and responding to her own posts (as a different user) reassuring other moms that she was legit.

I feel stupid for being duped, and letting it go so long- I don’t count on getting any money back, and don’t think I will evewn bother! If anyone is interested in the info I found- LMK! She gives us other WAHMs a bad name!

Re: I’m slow, and feel really dumb!

oh man Tanya I’m so sorry! her website says this

It is with great sadness that I close the doors to Miki Bunz! I will no longer be accepting new orders.

Due to some unforseen server issues I have lost all of my order details and emails etc. I appologize if you do not yet have your orders due to this issue. Please email me and I will make every effort to get those orders out as soon as possible!

thank you and I appologize for the inconvenience, but please be reassured that I will get your orders out asap.

mikibunz@sympatico.ca

sounds like that name is out so now shes closing that biz and probably opening A new one.

oh man this link has lots of unhappy customers too. she sounds like a pro scammer!

Oh, yeah!- she didn’t get me w/ Mikibunz- that site is from 2008/early 2009- she was on here as 3 different user names at least that I can tell- that’sk why she was banned.

After Mikibunz, it appears she moved on to Hyenacart and Etsy, and also does Ebay. Check out the diapers on these 2 sites- both from usernames here on DS: http://bambootybaby.webs.com/ http://little-otter.webs.com/

Liana- check out the links on the first site- she has you listed!

I only found the mikibunz link when I went into paypal to request money from her and when it got to the confirmation page- it had it listed next to the email I had imputed!

  1. DSDM2 says:

    She is now going by the name Marie, and is using the same photo of her diaper on the multiple websites.

  2. JustPeachy says:

    Her diapers don’t even look all that great in pics. They look cheap.

  3. smartassmama says:

    Wow. Multi-Scammer. Sounds a lot like Talisha. Or whatever her name was.

  4. treeindawind says:

    You would think that if she was scamming sooooo many people, she would at least be smart enough to use different photos!

  5. angie says:

    Thank you for new drama!!! Taking out the popcorn. Anyone care for some?

  6. DSDM2 says:

    I love that these photos are the same, and neither has the right name on the tag, looks like COZY BABY or something:

    One is from one of her username’s website, the other from Angel-baby on HC

  7. DSDM2 says:

    http://little-otter.webs.com/DSC01334.JPG and http://hyenacart.com/prod_images4/vid2190_pdid87185_2.jpg are the same too, one from little otter and the other her new HC

  8. smartassmama says:

    Ahh. She finally wised up and stopped shooting from the side with the label on it.

  9. DSDM2 says:

    I take that back, I enlarged the photo and the pink diaper says bambootybaby on it, lol.

  10. FunnyMama says:

    she’s a busy little scammer, ain’t she?

  11. MotherMoonPads says:

    Poor business name choice or also possibly related?
    http://www.diaperswappers.com/forum/showthread.php?t=917500&highlight=bambooty

  12. smartassmama says:

    I kinda love this:

    “Notice: There is an error on Diaper Swappers and is currently being looked into.  Please email me with any questions at little_otter@ymail.com ! thanks mommas!”

    I’ve thought of posing as interested and emailing. What kind of error does she speak of? Hmmmm

  13. DSDM2 says:

    11, bad choice of name, her items are much nicer..

  14. Myself says:

    Wow a smart scammer, that sucks!

    I always hated her business name so never bought from her though I thought about it a time or two.

  15. DSDM2 says:

    Her name on CDN is Marie.

  16. DSDM2 says:

    She also has 2 UNs here, or more… looking.

  17. Cylon-Frakker says:

    Wow…. just…. her diapers don’t even look that nice… even assuming you’d get one…

  18. cdnation says:

    She’s now in the b/s/t with caution user group and I put up a thread in hot seat. Tired of the BS.

  19. smartassmama says:

    Here? Wow. I’d be interested to know the threads she’s commented on ’round these parts.

    And I’m curious to know what she says in the hot seat.

  20. cdnation says:

    I would like to ask that tomorrow be the day that no one who’s a pain in the ass gets on the internet, just one day this week please.

  21. DSDM2 says:

    lol. Sorry to make it part of CDN.

  22. Myself says:

    21 – Okay, guess I’ll stay offline.

  23. eeek says:

    lol #21. The internet would echo.

  24. smartassmama says:

    21. My husband will be home tomorrow. I make no promises. He’s a big jackass. But I can at least promise he won’t go to CDN. lol

  25. smartassmama says:

    I’m still trying to come up with that username. . .

  26. MaeghanAlyson says:

    wow…that totally blows.

    and i’m starting to get why everyone hates DS. I just got in trouble for a post that was over a week old that only had a couple of replys bc it had this in it
    “I *****ed them out.*
    Gay.

  27. sciencefair says:

    Wow. She is a professional scammer to the max. Glad I haven’t been scammed by her, but imagine a whole lot of people have.

  28. smartassmama says:

    Blah. They are slow on the uptake huh? I got my second strike a good week after I called someone an Asshole. haha

  29. Coffeelover says:

    So if one of her sn’s is boysniris, did she actually have the guts to respond in that thread, or am I reading it wrong?

  30. smartassmama says:

    DUDE! You are right!

    Is that actually one of her names? I knew it looked familiar to me. I’ve seen that member posting a round a lot.

  31. DSDM2 says:

    OK, It looks like I misread boysniris’s post. I will take her name out. The other 3 I am sure of. And the photos prove it. I hadn’t had my coffee yet when I posted. 😉

  32. MotherMoonPads says:

    I giggled at the title of this thread. http://www.diaperswappers.com/forum/showthread.php?t=946468

  33. Just Wow... says:

    These scammers keep getting more and more balls-y. Wow.

  34. lurking says:

    CDN moms???!!!! LOL

  35. MotherMoonPads says:

    Wait, I think I was a total moron and she means Canadian moms, doesn’t she *blush*. I thought for a second she forgot what website she was on. This end of pregnancy thing is getting to me.

  36. lurking says:

    36. me too. Is funny anyway LOL.

  37. Trojane says:

    One of the 3 feedbacks for LittleOtter is from BamBootyBaby, who has 2 negs, too. http://www.diaperswappers.com/forum/itrader.php?u=69155

  38. Taterbug says:

    #36, I assumed they meant Canadian, but still found it funny.

  39. JustMe says:

    Hmm, the plot thickens. I thought the bambootybaby person was different…

  40. JustMe says:

    Oh, nevermind, I’m a dork and confused.

  41. MajKitab says:

    i remember when she popped up with bambootbaby on the hc forums marketplace…. her stuff really looks like crap… always has.

  42. MajKitab says:

    *that should say: bambootybaby

  43. DSDM2 says:

    Willow, please use you normal UN.

  44. DSDM2 says:

    Willow, we have a standing rule that you can only have one UN, we have your IPs, all of them so far, and will only approve posts from one name from here on out, we know you have used a few in the past, but no more please.

  45. Messy says:

    #27 Maeghan, “gay”? Really? That is not an adjective. Just sayin’.

  46. FunnyMama says:

    47 – thank you, I wanted to say something but I couldn’t get up the testicular fortitude

  47. erinbeth says:

    I can’t read the HC link. Can anyone c&p? Thanks.

  48. Myself says:

    45 – who is Willow again?

    FunnyMama – thats cause you have Ovaries not Testicles

  49. smartassmama says:

    So, the original topic – she actually kinda owns being the same WAHM behind all three brands, huh? On her HC page she offers all three brands in her 6pk.

  50. Myself says:

    That’s not owning up. Someone could ASSume from that that she ordered directly from the manufacturer of the “other” diapers.

  51. smartassmama says:

    True. That’s probably the excuse she’ll use.

  52. smartassmama says:

    So I’ve tried at least 3 times to register for the HC forums to try and read that thread. . . Unsuccesful. Something about an email error. Then I try again and my email address and UN are already in use? I think it’s having trouble sending me a conformation email. Blah.

  53. altaem says:

    47 & 48 – I have the Ovarian Fortitude…but I couldn’t figure out what to say. Messy said it perfectly.

    smartassmama – I know some people are seeing you as a monster, but you still look like shiny, perfect testicles to me!

  54. smartassmama says:

    You mean my avatar, or are we speaking on a deeper metaphorical level? 😉

  55. moxy says:

    55 Actually she didn’t say it perfectly. Gay IS an adjective. Or a noun. What it ISN’T–or rather shouldn’t be–is a word used in a derogatory manner. Just sayin’. 😉

  56. Messy says:

    #57 Actually, unless she was saying that DS is a “happy, bright place abounding in social pleasures”, then she was using it as an adverb acting off the noun version of the word. Thus, in her post, “gay” is in fact, not an adjective. Just explainin’. 😉
    http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/gay

  57. moxy says:

    The fact remains that “gay” is an adjective, regardless of whether that was how she used it or not, or whether she used it correctly.
    I think your point was that “gay” shouldn’t be used as a slur, and that is correct. 🙂

  58. FunnyMama says:

    I pink sparkly heart English skillz.

  59. sheepthrills says:

    MaeghanAlyson was the person who got me to start my do not b/s/t list and has the honor of the first spot. I don’t remember now but I think there was some asshattery discussed here on the blog a long long time ago. Good to see some things don’t change…I think.

  60. JustPeachy says:

    #61 I do not recall such asshattery so refresh our memories.

  61. FunnyMama says:

    Wow.

  62. FunnyMama says:

    way to get all Nancy Drew on that shiz, Peachy!! The faithful readers of and contributors to DoDS thank you.

  63. DSDM2 says:

    https://thedramaofdiaperswappers.wordpress.com/2008/07/08/guess-the-scammer/ I had forgotten how heated that thread got.. I remembered she was on my DoNot BST list, but not why. Now I remember.

  64. Myself says:

    Ummm. MeaghanAlyson is on CDN.

    ugh, hopefully Mom sees that thread

  65. Lolanae says:

    Ohh and McMama is also on CDN. Not sure if she posts regularly anymore though.

  66. DeviateFromTheNorm says:

    Oh goody…. another scammer. That’s two in less than 24 hours! I didn’t read through all 214 responses- Did anyone actually get their diapers or refunds? If not, I’m sure Sam will take care of it.

  67. Myself says:

    69 – those are pretty abnormal spelling so I’m pretty sure they are the same

  68. FunnyMama says:

    It’s the same person. She posts here under “MaeghanAlyson” and her avatar picture is the same as it was in that threat from 07/2008 (even though at that time her UN was just “Maeghan”)

  69. FunnyMama says:

    Mamas got their diapers, only after a plethora of mismatching stories and excuses. There’s also talk of her copying a WAHM’s prefold idea and some major sycophance.

  70. DeviateFromTheNorm says:

    Sounds like a great candidate for “B/S/T with caution” group, though obviously that’s up to the rockin’ admin. 😉

  71. JustPeachy says:

    Mom said no asshattery today LOL.

  72. naturalmamadot says:

    wow, I was totally just thinking something was off about her on CDN

  73. smartassmama says:

    Wow. I’m very glad that got brought up here. Since her feedback is 100% (Thank you DS and your “all’s well that ends well” policy), I wouldn’t have really hesitated.

  74. Myself says:

    75 – Oh crap, I forgot I was supposed to stay off the internet today

    (hides from Mom)

    76 – I got a weird vibe as well.

  75. smartassmama says:

    I’m confining my husband to bed for that very reason 78. No asshats on the computer today. At least before noon.

  76. Myself says:

    79 – Not just for :creepy: ?

  77. FunnyMama says:

    asshattery knows no days. :sigh:

  78. FunnyMama says:

    I understand coming onto public forums to vent a little – heck, I do it all the time between my part-time douche canoe husband (and I say that in the most loving way possible) and my hypochondriac MIL. But there still needs to be a little discretion when it comes to “life stories”. I think a lot of people have the FluffyButt syndrome where they have to embellish (read: lie) because they feel like they’re not getting enough attention, and broadcast those lies all over the interwebz w/o thinking about the potential long-term consequences.

  79. Myself says:

    82 – ?

  80. FunnyMama says:

    re: MaeghanAlyson and the post from last summer

  81. smartassmama says:

    80 ? I meant the Internet althogether. Joking of course. He doesn’t get on DS, or here. I was kidding.

  82. FunnyMama says:

    I think she was joking about confining your DH to bed to get some.

  83. FunnyMama says:

    all joking aside, I need teh cofeez

  84. Myself says:

    84 – okay makes more sense now
    85- yeah that to what 86 said
    87 – I need some hot cocoa, a ton of tylenol and my bed, not necessarily in that order

  85. FunnyMama says:

    I wish I could zap you with my magic wand to make that headache go away. Heck, I’d zap my own dang self.

  86. smartassmama says:

    Haha! Color me clueless. I had to go test that one out in my siggy. Now I get it! My bad. 😉

    and, no. 😦

  87. cdnation says:

    :sigh: :banghead:

    I’ll be back to deal with all this later, unless someone wants to pm me the sort version of that thread.

  88. Myself says:

    90 – sorry, though I’ve always thought it would be awesome to tie my husband to the bed and leave him there

    91 – PMd you a VERY short version

  89. sheepthrills says:

    Yeah I saw Meaghan was on CDN a few days ago too, and just kind of groaned inwardly. Maybe I should have brought it up sooner. 😛

  90. altaem says:

    smartass – a deeper metaphorical level, of course…okay, so maybe it’s your avi!

  91. naturalmamadot says:

    93 – from what Ive seen her post I wonder if shes not a troll as well as a scammer? She seems really nonchalant and flippant about serious shit like trying to get a reaction…not a dumbass obvious troll like felisha

  92. naturalmamadot says:

    my last comment is in moderation I think because I used felishoes name lol

  93. redfish bluefish says:

    Ooooo I’ve been seeing her (maeghanalyson) on CDN quite a bit :/

  94. redfish bluefish says:

    91-Hugs

    90-I’m confused. Test what?

  95. Myself says:

    98 – she tested out :creepy: on CDN it is the :heyhey: guy from DS (took me awhile to figure it out)

  96. redfish bluefish says:

    ooo okay, ty

  97. sheepthrills says:

    95–yeah I think I smell troll too. This one just has a much subtler scent…

  98. sciencefair says:

    Damn, there is something in the air or water. What is wrong with all these scammers showing up all of a sudden?

  99. smartassmama says:

    Now, if we tie them up, we can’t make them do our postal bidding! That would be a shame!

    Totally joking. I’d not trust DH to get the right thing sent the right place, proper shipping, etc. Plus, he’s bigger than me. Can’t tie him up.

    If maeghanalyson is scammy, she should not have 100% feedback. There’s DS at it’s finest, protecting the scammer by using moderation to give someone positive feedback. That’s just not fair to the people who aren’t scamming. A negative experience should result in negative FB, even if you had to haggle and get your items, haggling shouldn’t be a necessity.

  100. Sharpie says:

    Another heads up: Chavah Baby (use to be on the Hidden Element congo) has been outed for scamming on HC forums and DS. I’m sure it will be gone soon but here’s the linky:

    http://hyenacart.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=134666&highlight=

    She is also on CDN apparently. I’m not on CDN so I’m not sure if she’s been put under BST with caution but if she hasn’t might be something to consider since a LOT of ppl have been screwed by her.

  101. Sharpie says:

    Also if I’m waaaayyyy behind on that info I’m sorry, just saw that today and thought I’d pass it forward in case anyone is living in the dark like me.

  102. Myself says:

    I let Mom know. She is currently active on CDN without a B/S/T caution.

    :sigh:

  103. thismelrocks says:

    #104- She has been on my radar since I read the answering machine post on DS. I wanted to bring her up but saw she was posting all over CDN and was hoping it was a mistake.

  104. Myself says:

    107 – her name is different so it never clicked for me

  105. thismelrocks says:

    I also find it interesting that her first post ever on CDN was 10/22/09, which was when the answering machine posts were made, and it was about changing her name.

  106. Myself says:

    that is VERY suspicious

  107. thismelrocks says:

    Maybe the name change is not that interesting. She asked on DS to have it changed in October(2wks before CDN) too. I would think if you wanted to scam/move on on a new board you would want your name to be different.

    Anyways, her last log in at DS was 12/27/09 while the answering machine thread was up and not one post from her is in there. Smells like tuna!

  108. cdnation says:

    Someone opened the portal to hell and let lose with scamapalloza.

    If I post on that thread on DS for people who didn’t get their stuff and gave my email address thats not associated with CDN do you think I’ll get a strike or whatever they give?

  109. Myself says:

    yeah but it says C***B under her name on DS and since she hasn’t posted no one would realize she has a new name

  110. thismelrocks says:

    In the answering machine thread someone posted her new name. That is how I knew it was her on CDN.

    I will post it on DS for you cdnation.

  111. Myself says:

    oh junk yes they will give you a strike

    but a lot of them are in the thread and might know of some others through the grapevine

    also the Hidden Element congo might know some more

  112. me says:

    I posted that she was on CDN when that post was originally up. I thought since lots of people knew her and she wasn’t being avoided that it had all been fixed.

  113. cdnation says:

    Someones told me about her in the past, but I ASSumed that it had all been taken care off. Guess that was a mistake.

    Tell them to email me there

  114. thismelrocks says:

    I sent you a PM on CDN. 😉

  115. cdnation says:

    Never mind Mel, I pm’ed admin there

  116. thismelrocks says:

    Just let me know 😀

  117. naturalmamadot says:

    whats her name on CDN? im slow

  118. thismelrocks says:

    Ahavati

  119. naturalmamadot says:

    yea I just found that……..WTF!?!?!

  120. amessymama says:

    She just started selling off her old stock in the CDN fsot. I wonder if those shirts have already been paid for by the people she scammed?

  121. Myself says:

    Those shirts have been up since 2-1-10

  122. naturalmamadot says:

    Ugh of course this comes to light the day shes having her baby *eyeroll* I really hope a lot of good mamas on CDN arent hurt over her two faced bullshit

  123. amessymama says:

    Oh *I* just saw them then. lol

  124. Myself says:

    Yeah I weighed the fact that she was having a baby against her scamming.

    Pretty much the first thought I had was that she was going to leave to have the baby and never come back

  125. smartassmama says:

    I, too, wonder what the missprint on the tree hugger one is. lol

  126. amessymama says:

    I don’t know if I have the times right, but it looks like her post on CDN about having the baby, was exactly 1 minute after Sharpie’s post about her on here. That’s just weird.

  127. JustPeachy says:

    Timestamp for sharpies post says 8:47 for me but its always wrong so Im assuming it was 2 minutes after she posted about having the baby. She posted at 3:45 that she was being induced.

  128. kukukachoo says:

    http://hyenacart.com/bearwarediapers/index.php?p=72676
    by “extra room in the bum to accomodate cloth diaper”, does she mean “hole”?

  129. JustPeachy says:

    Ahhhh when will ppl learn! You cant just split the legs without it being all holey. Get a fricken pattern dammit!

  130. thismelrocks says:

    #133 – LMAO!!!

  131. amessymama says:

    OMG, those woolies look like they got flushed down toilet, then drudged back up. At least the fuzzy, obviously chewed on drawstring is included. What a deal!!

  132. thismelrocks says:

    #131- Time stamps for me (PST) Sharpie posted at 12:47pm here and Ahavati posted at 12:48pm on CDN.

  133. amessymama says:

    Yeah, that’s how it is for me too. She’s certainly on the ball!

  134. coffeehoar says:

    Wow, color me surprised. I thought she was a long standing memeber at CDN…she’s been there a year (Ahvati or whatever her name is) and has well over a thousand posts. Doesn’t seem like typical scamming behavior.

  135. nini02 says:

    Ugh, I just bought something from her yesterday 😦

  136. Myself says:

    I have 8:47 for the DoDS
    3:48 for the Baby coming thread
    but 10:11 for the HC thread

  137. nini02 says:

    139 – I agree.

  138. smartassmama says:

    This is completely OT, but I sparkly heart the arcade at MCN.

  139. thismelrocks says:

    I still can’t find MCN by Google searching it. 😦

  140. amessymama says:

    http://www.misschevious.net/register.php

    There are two s’s. 🙂

  141. cdnation says:

    It’s not googleable even with the correct spelling.

  142. cdnation says:

    doh yes it is, if you spell it right. lol.

  143. smartassmama says:

    I think I found it with google?

  144. thismelrocks says:

    #145 Thanks! 😀

  145. amessymama says:

    Your welcome! :notthepassiveaggressivethumbsupsmiliebutthenoproblemsmilie:

  146. celestialdreamer says:

    Can I out an scamming HC WAHM on here? Or do you only want DS drama?

  147. amessymama says:

    Please do! We like to hear about scammers of all variety.

  148. celestialdreamer says:

    Well…I try to avoid the “drama” because I don’t have time for it but I feel like this WAHM deserves to be outed. I was scammed by Courtney of Greenhorn on Hyenacart. I just left her negative feedback…which is now her 3rd! When I purchased there was only 1 and I thought it was worth the chance, but I learned my lesson : (

    http://hyenacart.com/feedback_view.php?vidn=1599

  149. celestialdreamer says:

    Oh and to make it even sweeter…she’s now offering a SALE on the same wipes that she scammed me on! YAY! Let’s all order some!

  150. justme says:

    I’m not trying to out anyone, but this is the only place you can get honest information without being punished.
    Has anyone had/heard of a bad experience with UN littlemisses on DS?
    She’s got a lot of positive FB, but I know that doesn’t mean much there and I refuse to believe my experience with her was an isolated incident.

  151. dirtyj says:

    Wow! On top of the 3 negatives she also has a few other questionable transactions that were prematurely marked positive. I wonder if those ended well.

  152. celestialdreamer says:

    Does anyone know how many negatives on HC before they shut down a cart?

  153. Myself says:

    155 – she was aired on DoDS before.

    But yes I’ve heard of close to 15 bad transactions.

  154. dirtyj says:

    I thought it was 3 negs. HC has to be notified of it I believe

  155. Myself says:

    155 – here is the DoDS link for littlemisses/Toothless Grinz

  156. justme says:

    161 – Thank you! I knew I couldn’t be alone.
    I was on her “September” customs list. I finally got my order in February. FEBRUARY. And they’re awful. They look nothing like the yarn I chose and they’re not even close to my DS’ measurements, September or now. I honestly think she just grabbed a pair she had lying around hoping to pass them off.
    Every time I messaged her asking what the fark was going on, I got one fantastic excuse after another. When I finally asked for a refund, they’d magically shipped that morning.
    Now that I know I’m not just crazy, I’ll be leaving appropriate FB.

  157. Myself says:

    I guess I shouldn’t say how long some people waited on my list. But I did tell them I would let them know as soon as I finished the one in front of them.

    Yeah, she has a lot of excuses. Good luck.

  158. naturalmamadot says:

    wow its pretty bad when you need to ask on here before you buy anything, ever. I certainly dont remember every single person ever featured on here LET ALONE the tons of ppl that are outed or talked about in the thousands of comments.

  159. Myself says:

    Maybe there should a sticky thread about all the scammers / suspicious WAHMs

  160. justme says:

    I would have been perfectly fine with the wait if *she* had taken the initiative to update me and had been honest about her serious lack of time management skills, but after she got her money I didn’t hear from her for more than 6 weeks.
    It was like pulling teeth getting any updates at all.

  161. piratebaby says:

    hey cdn ladies, who is the Spots seller that was so rude to slcasteel?

  162. Myself says:

    Yeah. I had a friend have some yarn dyed by her and it had patches of white in it. There was supposed to be NO white.

    She was told that it just “wouldn’t take the dye”

  163. Sala says:

    Don’t you have to do something to the yarn so that it doesn’t take the dye? I mean, most yarns start off white or natural and then you just dip them or paint them with dye, right? I know nothing about yarn but the idea that the white wouldn’t take dye sounds like a bunch of crap to me.

  164. amessymama says:

    167-Her name is AshdownBreeding.

  165. TeamB4me says:

    167 AshdownBreeding
    153 There is thread at CDN regarding this WAHM. Seems a few have had issues

    littlemisses is a member of CDN-apparently new and posting today

  166. Myself says:

    Yeah I thought it was a cop out about it not taking the dye

  167. justme says:

    White spots are a sure sign of notknowingwhatthehellyouredoing.
    They usually happen when you don’t use enough dye, dye too big a skein all at once, or over estimate the amount of bleed you’ll get from one color to the next. All of those should be totally avoidable if you’re semi-decent at what you do.

  168. iken says:

    I would love a list of all of the scammers. It is hard to keep up! Also, I have 3 of the large Super Sleepy Time inserts from Greenhorn FFS if someone needs them/never received them.

  169. JustMe says:

    Just saying that justme and JustMe (aka the person typing now) are not the same person. 🙂

  170. Myself says:

    175 – well if nothing else you have different monsters so I can tell you apart

  171. Myself says:

    I got a JAR in my inbox about Chavah Baby. Just in case anyone doesn’t get them.

    The mama said that Cassandra is SELLING the tshirts that she paid for. She filed with PP and it was ruled in her favor but the account had been closed so PP couldn’t get her money back.

  172. Sala says:

    @177, haven’t gotten it yet. She’s selling t-shirts someone else bought and paid for? How tacky is that?! How is she selling them, with another PP account?

  173. Messy says:

    Oh no 😦 Hope Mom saw the JAR (if not, LMK and I can forward it). I hate that it specifies CDN as where this scammer is selling her wares 😡 She can go fucker up someone else’s playpen. Good thing she had to be induced all of a sudden today huh? :rollingmyeyesliketheyaremarbles:

  174. werd says:

    GOOD LORD! Is it really that hard to be a good, honest WAHM??? This is all so disheartening, especially concerning Ahavati… I really liked her 😦

  175. Messy says:

    #180 I know Werd 😦 I am losing faith.

  176. Kris says:

    The JAR has been brought to admin’s attention.

  177. cdnation says:

    I was in touch with the person who filed the jar yesterday and had her go to the fsot thread. She told me which shirts were hers. And how much money she’s out.

    Give me some time ladies, it will be taken care of.

  178. DSDM2 says:

    If any CDN ladies have bought from her recently, or have her new PP address, they need to give it to Mom or the JAR filer so they can combine the paypal accounts and have more of a chance at getting back their money.

  179. sciencefair says:

    Aagh! The amount of outing here is making me afraid to do any business with WAHMs. I am so disappointed in these ladies that put the WAHM name to shame. I think I need to buy some things from WAHMs that I know won’t scam me just to rebuild my faith in them.

    And FTR, I liked Ahavati too. Can’t all the scammers be jerks. The nice ones make me sad.

  180. DSDM2 says:

    If they were all jerks, then we wouldn’t buy from them or be scammed by them. They are good at hiding and lying. 😦 It really is disappointing how many there are right now.

  181. MaxandRuby AKA It’s A Snap says:

    So Samanthavv on CDN says snaps is around on other boards. Anyone know which one? or ones?

  182. BFF says:

    I srsly love this blog with all my heart.

  183. cdnation says:

    And Marie has been banned.

  184. JustPeachy says:

    I agree we need a list. Its getting kind of long. Anyone wanna help me compile one?

  185. TeamB4me says:

    Peach~ I will help with coming up with an accurate list. Where would we keep said list where everyone has access to it?

    (RmeWife~Amanda~)

  186. JustPeachy says:

    Maybe DSDM can make a post or something????? I have no idea where to put it. Any ideas?

  187. naturalmamadot says:

    Hi RmeWife 🙂

  188. TeamB4me says:

    *waves* Hey, naturalmamdot!

  189. TeamB4me says:

    A post here or a yahoo group solely dedicated to scammers??

  190. TeamB4me says:

    solely dedicated to a list, I should say. Info about them is here, CDN…and doesn’t ds have a ‘Wall O’ Shame” *snicker*

  191. Myself says:

    DS Wall O Shame is a joke

  192. JustPeachy says:

    Oh thats an idea Amanda. Just a group where people can report scammers after they have been found out on other sites. This eliminates the need to do the pesky research.

  193. amessymama says:

    CDN has a know scammers list. It hasn’t been added to since Sept of last year. With just this week alone, we could bump that thread 2 more pages.

  194. TeamB4me says:

    Yeah, most the research is here. The super sleuths get it done here. Just a list would help me….my brain space can’t hold all the names in the past 48 hours much less in the history of the CD world.

  195. JustPeachy says:

    Right? Im sure there are tons of ppl who are still around that I have forgotten about and I keep a pretty good mental list of it.

  196. TeamB4me says:

    It looks like there is a legitimate birth happening. According to her husband’s twitter updates….unless she is just really, really good.
    http://twitter.com/mayhemchaos

  197. amessymama says:

    Well, she’s certainly good at timing. lol

  198. celestialdreamer says:

    If someone is working on a list of scammers, please feel free to add Luxe Baby to that. She screwed me over on my customs order last fall and ran off with my money after stringing me along for months. She had been one of my favorite WAHMS so I was really disgusted by that experience. She had refused to give me a refund because she said her account had a “hold” on it from so many paypal claims. Nice.

  199. JustPeachy says:

    WTF??????? Wow I never expected Jessie would do something like that. Good to know tho. I really liked her stuff too.

  200. incognizable says:

    LOL, teamb4me, how the hell did you find that twitter?

  201. incognizable says:

    Looks like Cassandra is making an appearance in the hot seat :popcorn:

  202. naturalmamadot says:

    Whats up with this?

    http://hyenacart.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=96191&sid=d13b062136b32f714ad8a38de90edf17

    isnt she active on CDN and has ppl sending her stuff?
    Ive always liked her, but unless they forgot to update with a resolution I think she scammed 2 ppl?

  203. naturalmamadot says:

    I saw she was on here….along with Kindhearted women? wtf I thought she was super popular?
    http://hyenacart.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=129147

  204. werd says:

    WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT?! Jessi as in RocketQueen?!?!

  205. amessymama says:

    209-Does she have the same user name? I couldn’t find that particular one.

  206. JustPeachy says:

    Yup thats her. I found that a couple of weeks ago when I was poking around on the swaps forum and I was a bit surprised.

  207. amessymama says:

    Maybe it was overlooked and just needs to be updated that everything turned out OK ? :hopeful:

  208. naturalmamadot says:

    yea as in rocketqueen. i know right werd? I was like ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. okay…… I thought she was like very well known and loved?

  209. thismelrocks says:

    Rocketqueen…really? I sure hope not.

  210. Kimbella says:

    205: Someone was asking what had happened to Jesse on DS recently. The lady who owns MMB (which is the only place where Luxe wool can be found right now) responded that Jesse “need prayers”. She never said why.

  211. cdnation says:

    Those have not been updated. Jessi made good on them.

  212. Kimbella says:

    If a person owns more than one store on HC, does HC total up the negative feedback for all the stores?

    The greenhorn lady (3 negs) also owns first gear (4 negs) and I think maybe one other store too.

  213. werd says:

    oh thank goodness!

  214. Kimbella says:

    Five Little Monkeys is the 3rd one. No negs there.

  215. naturalmamadot says:

    Thats good to hear, Im really suprised the ppl didnt update on her fb thread!?!? If I thought I was screwed over and it ended up being fine, I would definitely want to change my post. Not to mention I would be PISSED if I was Jessi and that stuff was still out there about me making me look like a scammer.

  216. JustPeachy says:

    Ya I would be pissed too. I wonder if the hc mods are aware that the transactions have been resolved.

  217. zosiasmama says:

    Jessi (rocketqueen) made good on all of her transaction. Before I made the thread to ask if anyone wanted to help Jess we checked all of that out.

  218. TeamB4me says:

    207 First I googled Cassandras full name->found her blog (The Violet Hours) -> Found her husband ‘s blog->Saw the twitter updates….Iz learnt sometin’ readin’ this here blog.

  219. redfish bluefish says:

    Color me SHOCKED AS HELL at the Cassie deal. And sad. I like her. I pray that her sweet baby is healthy and she makes good on all this when shes all settled.

  220. naturalmamadot says:

    225 I did the same thing

  221. Myself says:

    only reason I wasn’t shocked was cause it was mentioned to file a JAR on the blog

    162 – I recommend filing a JAR on her as well. She could just go to another mama forum and do the same thing to them.

  222. monkey says:

    Ugh. This whole thing bothers me. I really liked Ahavati.

    There’s one thing we need to remember though, we lament how many scammers there are (and it does feel like they’re taking over!) but for every scammer there are 5 great WAHM’s who make high quality products and have great customer service. I hope nobody lets stuff like this make them quit buying from WAHM’s. You just have to do your research and buy from established WAHM’s with good reputation.

  223. 1ofthosehatefulbitches says:

    I’m shocked as hell about Jesse/Luxe Baby. My entire stash was Luxe Baby for my dd.
    Jessi/RocketQueen corrected the problem w/the HC swap once she was made aware of it, months ago AFAIK.

  224. Rocket says:

    I corrected that swap issue as far as the communication I had from the partner was concerned. Of course, my dumbass apparently deleted those emails (along with some stuff that almost got us fucked out of our travel reimbursement with DH’s teaching contract here in China, yeah, real bright). If anyone knows if the person is still claiming I didn’t make good, let me know so I can deal with it first hand.

    I quit going on the HC forums completely and my account went inactive, so I never even paid attention that it wasn’t updated.

  225. Rocket says:

    That was supposed to say I quit going to the HC forums once the issue was resolved to my knowledge once we moved to China because I wasn’t buying/trading/selling actively online anymore because of the steep international shipping costs.

  226. monkey says:

    #231

    I knew you were cool. 🙂 Hey, I sent you either a pm or email Jessi (not sure which one) so check for it.

  227. mama says:

    Hey- I had a wretched experience with Greenhorn and I am the October FB of “resolved”, Somehow it isn’t highighted even though I left negative. wtf? I’m not sure how my negative was changed to “resolved”.

  228. naturalmamadot says:

    Wow it was resolved without any contact to you, the person screwed over? thats nice.

  229. JustPeachy says:

    support@hyenacart.com let them know.

  230. smartassmama says:

    Soooo. OT. But does anyone know how I can be “let out” on MCN? I have 10+ posts, but I’m not sure if I’m supposed to ask, or? I don’t want to overstep. One person already thinks I sound like I’m there to be a shit stirrer, just bc of my name. I tried to email the ‘contact us’ to change it, but haven’t gotten a response.

  231. mama says:

    It let me leave a final comment, but I still had it checked “negative”. I don’t understand it either, and have always had a positive experience on HC- I think it was some sort of accidental error on their part.

  232. 1ofthosehatefulbitches says:

    Smartass…go bump your intro for help 🙂

  233. smartassmama says:

    Thanks. Wasn’t sure if that was the norm or not.

    I’ll go bump myself. heehee

  234. eeek says:

    It sucks about Ahavati. Sucks for her too, karma kind of smacked her back by screwing with such a good day, huh? Can you imagine feeling so guilty at your own craptasticality you have to post apologies and beg for forgiveness while having a baby? I wish she had just gone the much easier path of actually sending the shit she sold.

    And hearing that about Luxe baby makes me want to cry. She was so reliable, for so long. And she made such beautiful things. Something really awful must have happened- she should tell people if so instead of letting everything crumble.

    & HC is far from perfect. They do try, but some of the systems just don’t always flow together. If you see anything that is wrong, or your feedback shows up incorrectly, or you see a store with 3 negatives, or anything else that just looks all wrong, email them or open a support ticket. They really will try to take care of it, and if they don’t tell them they didn’t.

  235. cheesewhiz says:

    #171 – Does anyone have a link to the CDN thread about AhsdownBreeding? I ordered a couple things from her…:-x

    And Ahavati? I would have never thought she was a scammer…I could be wrong but I seem to recall her posting a bit in the Spirituality section at CDN, not that that means anything…

    Off to read from #172 on down, and hope that I haven’t repeated anybody…

  236. cheesewhiz says:

    Thanks, 243. Now that I see it, I do remember that thread, I just didn’t make the connection at the time. GREAT.

  237. cheesewhiz says:

    AshdownBreeding changed her name to Ashdown1967 on Spots.

  238. sciencefair says:

    When people post from cell phones on CDN it says ‘posted from mobile device’ at the bottom right?

  239. cheesewhiz says:

    Yeah…

  240. smartassmama says:

    I’ll try it.

  241. smartassmama says:

    It doesn’t with an itouch, which is just like the iPhone. I’ve noticed it on a lot of posts too, though.

  242. cdnation says:

    It doesn’t say that with all phones.

  243. TaraC says:

    Can someone please link me or fill me in on what’s going on with Luxe Baby? Is she just closed or have there been issues?

  244. redfish bluefish says:

    Just checked out Cassie’s DH’s Twitter-welcome baby Chaiya! She’s a doll and nice n healthy for coming at 37wks.

  245. adensmama says:

    There have been issues with Cass/Ahavati scamming for months now. Or just…taking peoples money and not giving them their stuff. Unfortunate because she is really nice, but you just can’t do that.

    I also am wondering what is going on with Jesse of Luxe…why does she “need prayers”?
    The last longies I got as customs I think last fall? I only *barely* got after like 2 months and emailing her countless times. I know she was about to move after that, but I have no idea what else is going on.

  246. miasmama says:

    In response to the HC swap issue with regards to JessisaurusRarr (I think this is Jesse) it has not been resolved. I have never received anything from the yarn for shorties swap. I still have a pm in my outbox from almost a year ago that has not been checked. I have never been to this site before but was directed here by someone else. If Jessie wants to contact me I am still on HC with the same name.

  247. celestialdreamer says:

    To #251, you can read the feedback on her cart. From what I understand she sold a bunch of preorders late last summer/early fall and then didn’t send out most of them. I had placed a large order with her as she had always been my most favorite interlock WAHM. I was patient with her when it went past the pp deadline because she had always been so wonderful. She was very slow to respond and then after a very long time of not responding to my emails she finally told me she couldn’t send me my items and she couldn’t refund. I’m very sorry to hear she’s been ill, but she still shouldn’t be stealing people’s money. Even just a simple explanation would have been helpful.

  248. miasmama says:

    Oh my post (254) was in regard to 231

  249. kitty1163 says:

    Luxe FB only has one neg.

  250. JustPeachy says:

    The plot thickens…

  251. naturalmamadot says:

    agh I want to talk about this wahm that I think has gone bad but Im waiting on the victim to tell me if she wants to comment here or if I can for her haha

  252. naturalmamadot says:

    Okay she said I can post.
    A few months ago she ordered some mama cloth from Katie Bubbles at 2 cute to resist.
    http://hyenacart.com/2cute2resist/index.php?c=13
    Great communication, fast shipping.
    Last week she ordered some postpartum pads and some nursing pads. Its been almost 10 days, no communication.

    She also has 2 negs and some comments in her feedback from last year about closing.
    Nothign says this on her HC though and she has obviously still been accepting orders on a regular basis. http://hyenacart.com/2cute2resist/index.php?c=13

    I advised her to file a JAR after she filed a dispute with PP (which she just did)

    I have ordered from katie bubbles and I know others who have, its REALLY too bad if she has gone bad 😦

  253. Rocket says:

    miasmommy, can you shoot me an email at mommysaurusrarr ‘at’ yahoo ‘dot’ com? My account is long since inactive on HC but I want to make this right. All this went down the very day we were flying from NYC to Beijing, so the shuffle totally made it all a huge mess. I’m sorry that it went this long without getting resolved. I was informed by someone (I thought a mod at the time) via email that my responsibility was taken care of and went from there. So, valuable lesson learned to never ever ever delete emails… :-/

    Please email me and we’ll get this all settled. I am really sorry that this happened!

  254. DeviateFromTheNorm says:

    Good on you, Jessi.

  255. Rocket says:

    err miasmama rather

  256. AMomsHideout says:

    I can’t remember the name I posted under before so I used a new one. Sorry!!!
    Katie is a long time member of the forum I co-own, AMH. She hasn’t been online since Feb. This is the first time I have heard of issues with her but I am working to get to the bottom of it. If anyone has any info about customers not getting their orders could you please contact me through AMH under the un, Kelly. Or through this email amomshideout @ gmail.com (without the spaces)
    Thanks!

  257. magpiedpiper says:

    260 – I ordered from her awhile back and was sorely disappointed in the items received. They were to be gifts for two people and were not even remotely gift quality, so they are still sitting in my linen closet unused. Communication was also quite slow and she sent one fewer item than I paid for. Not sure I ever left feedback because I didn’t feel it was positive, but not bad enough to warrant negative.

  258. cheesewhiz says:

    #264 – You are more generous than I, because if I didn’t get everything I paid for I would for sure leave a negative…:err:

  259. twiddling*thumbs says:

    So inquiring minds want to know… who is the WAHM off of the BSRB forums or whatever that Cass supposedly still owes money to? I cannot imagine anything so high $ that would leave the WAHM in the whole so much, but maybe I am not getting it all.

  260. twiddling*thumbs says:

    *hole

  261. JustPeachy says:

    I can’t imagine paying 80 bucks for a deposit for anything.

  262. try me, i'm new! says:

    264 – isn’t that kinda the definition of a negative transaction? poor quality/unusable items, not getting an item you paid for, slow service and crappy cs? i mean, what all else must occur for it to be neg?

  263. try me, i'm new! says:

    266 – wasn’t there a comment about curtains for her windows? custom draperies?

  264. magpiedpiper says:

    269 – Perhaps. But my definition of what is gift quality may be different than someone else’s (they are definitely usable and I will use them for my next kid at some point), and I accidentally ordered 11 nursing pads rather than 10 so I could see an oversight in pairing them up. I kept waffling on what to leave and finally forgot to until this reminded me. Now it’s been a few months though probably.

  265. amessymama says:

    266-I’m pretty sure it was a crib bedding+curtains set. I remember it being for sale on Spots’ and people at DS hinting about the situation. It was beautiful!!

  266. Kimbella says:

    OT: Has Rainbow Waters not gotten the memo about copying fabrics?

    http://hyenacart.com/RainbowWaters/

  267. amessymama says:

    And I don’t think having to back out of a custom should be brought into the discussion about the scamming. That’s not the same thing. It shouldn’t be done, of course. But there are times when it can’t be avoided. This was probably around the same time her DH lost his job. Money for food starts getting really important right about then.

    That’s what deposits are for. Not that it is the WAHM’s fault at all, but I bet she now gets the full amount up front before she start cutting fabric.

  268. twiddling*thumbs says:

    I tend to agree with you, amessymama. I was just trying to figure out what it was. The one girl on CDN sure was pissy about the money her “friend” lost in the process. Seems to me, if she sold it anyway, than it was never really lost.

    I would like to see Cass make things right. This was a shocker to me, for sure.

  269. Messy says:

    Yeah, a deposit is just that… A deposit on the goods that is nonrefundable if you back out. If it was something that could not be sold to anyone else at that price, the WAHM needed to up the deposit to closer to the full amount to cover her ass. Period. Making someone pay more than the deposit they already lost on something is just wrong IMO.

    Weeelllll…I went and scrounged for the nursing pads just out of curiosity to see if they were how I remembered…

    Hot damn…the serging suckeths on those pads. Tester quality definetely.

  272. magpiedpiper says:

    Yeah, I didn’t recall them being THAT bad on the serging. Just the marker traces and being covered in lint, but I didn’t want to pre-wash if I was gifting. I’ll still use them myself because my bewbs will be the only one looking at them, but I really didn’t remember them being like that.

    Peach, wish you hadn’t found that Teen Pregnancy thread. I had to read it all.. and for the sake of not beating a dead horse, keep my comments to myself! That took a crap ton of self control. 😀

  275. Sala says:

    Negative for sure; she didn’t send your whole order and what you got looks like that? Erk. I’d be upset to get testers like that. Esp. the pen and the serging. If you can’t serge, why are you using a serger?

  276. Jacky says:

    I ordered some mamacloth from 2cute2resist/katiebubbles. They came quickly and while not super nice, I did get what I paid for. They were CHEAP, like $2 for liners and it did say that the fabric would be a surprise. They work just fine. I went to order more a couple months later and there was a message that the store was closing, but there were still a lot of pads left, so I am not sure what was going on there.

    Oh, this was probably 6-8mths ago now.

  277. AMomsHideout says:

    I posted last night but its not showing up so I finally joined WP. lol

    Katie is a long time member of the forum I co-own, AMH. This is the first we have heard of any issues with Katie. However we are working to get to the bottom of this and all of the issues resolved. She has not been online since 2/7 which tends to make me think something is wrong but I see from her FB that there were issues before then. If anyone else hasn’t gotten their items or has any unresolved issues will you please contact me at AMH- un Kelly or at this email amomshideout @ gmail.com (without the spaces)
    Thanks

  278. Jamie says:

    260–I sent Katie $200 worth of PUL in December as a trade for a stash of trainers for my daughter. She never sent me anything in return and disappeared from the forum where the trade took place.

  279. Myself says:

    I’m pretty sure the friend was either laniebug or Tamantha – draperies is what Tamantha does, and laniebug does custom crib sets

  280. Kristen says:

    RE: Cass & the custom…I don’t feel right outting the WAHM (I am a bsrb mama so I know a lot of the back story too) but I can tell you that it wasn’t about Cass backing out of the custom. She let the WAHM continue to work on the custom, allowed her to mail it out, kept said custom for several months if not a year, all the while she kept giving the WAHM the run-around about when she could/did ship the custom back to her. Essentially, she got to use it for months for free. The items were obviously used when they were returned to the WAHM. I think that is what upsets us so much about the whole thing. Sure, stuff comes up and you have to back out of a custom. That is understandable. But to never say anything until after the fact (and only bring up *wanting* to back out AFTER you are called out on your craptastic ways) and letting the custom be mailed to you and USING it for months on end, meanwhile the WAHM is out of the money for the fabric (over $200) and her time (which she didn’t even charge Cass for…just the fabric, because she considered Cass a friend) and has horrible feelings about the whole situation. That is what has us bsrb mamas so upset about everything.

  281. Kristen says:

    Also meant to say that Cass only sent $80 and nothing more. Sure, it’s the WAHMs fault for sending the custom before receiving full payment but again, she considered Cass a good friend and didn’t expect to get shafted.

  282. Lolanae says:

    What Kristen said.

    Also apparently when all this went down, that’s when she disappeared from DS/the BSRB thread. Come October, she’s called out on DS for the drama with her t-shirt business. That’s the first time I heard that DS had eaten her computer and it had to be replaced.

    As far as I can remember, she hadn’t mentioned anything like that on FB before then. But I’ve slept since then.

    those wine bottles lights… umm yeah.. my kids make things like those at school for Mother’s Day, they glue/decoupage a bunch of tissue paper onto glass jars and then make pipecleaner flowers to go in them. The 3rd grade gets real fancy schmancy and makes it more mosaic-like, they try to form flowers and pictures with the paper. Hmm, maybe I should dig them all out, add lights and sell them on Etsy!

  288. celestialdreamer says:

    #257 re: Luxe baby – I’m not sure about why there was only my feedback for her. She specifically even told me she had “numerous” paypal claims at the time and that is why she couldn’t refund me. When I placed my custom order, there were quite a few private listings that were up at the same time. I’ve heard from at least one other person that they did not receive their item, but for some reason that person didn’t want to leave feedback. I’m wondering if the reason is because she was known as such a wonderful WAHM for so long that people didn’t want to out her. She really was very sweet to me in my previous orders, so I felt really terrible in how it all ended.

  289. celestialdreamer says:

    Also, I wanted to mention to anyone that reads Greenhorn’s response to my negative feedback – my order was NOT cancelled like she is claiming, she is totally lying. She cancelled my order AFTER I filed with paypal so I couldn’t leave feedback. I was trying to give her the benefit of the doubt and hoped that maybe she’d have some excuse or something.

    I had planned on leaving feedback once it was settled with paypal, but she prevented me from doing that. I’ve never ONCE had any email responses from her, yet she can post sales on her store, respond to paypal, etc. She’s something else. UGH.

  290. celestialdreamer says:

    Here’s what is says in Greenhorn’s feedback response: “Your previous order, based on your paypal dispute, was cancelled. Thus, I cancelled it in the system.”

    Umm, since when is it allowed on Hyenacart to cancel someone’s order so they can’t leave feedback if they file with paypal for non-receipt. WTF.

  291. Myself says:

    oh eek 299 – she is on my do not B/S/T list now

  292. JustPeachy says:

    299 go on the HC forums and leave feedback for her and ask that it be attached to her cart. They can and will do that.

    Greenhorn’s store is now inactive

  294. naturalmamadot says:

    UPDATE for 260. Katie Bubbles at 2 cute to resist.
    http://hyenacart.com/2cute2resist/index.php?c=13

    Well she told the buyer something about not printing out a prepaid label with paypal but her husband mailed it anyways…soooo the package is lost but she will get another one out to her?

    A)husband excuse is so old and BS imo B)its probably not “another” package its probably the first and only package IF shes going to send anything.

    The person is not closing the dispute until she receives her package AND its correct/good quality etc. *ugh* I hate hearing about these bad experiences with ppl *I* would normally recommend to people.

  295. celestialdreamer says:

    I have been assured by Karen at HC that as long as I haven’t “resolved” the feedback that the feedback will stay. So her store is closed for now thankfully.

  296. AMomsHideout says:

    #303 has your friend been in contact with Katie recently? Could you send me the details? thanks

  297. naturalmamadot says:

    That was all the details lol, Katie said her husband screwed it up (seems to be the most popular excuse in the fsot/wahm world) and that for some reason he felt that he could mail a package with no postage…..lol.
    Supposedly Katie is making her order “again” and sending it to her. She will only drop the paypal claim if and when she receives the order and it is made well etc.

  298. AMomsHideout says:

    Thanks 🙂 Do you know when the last time was she spoke with Katie?

  299. naturalmamadot says:

    I THINK yesterday, that update was very recent like last night.

  300. Jamie says:

    To: amomshideout
    I got the same explanation from Katie about the PUL I sent her to be made into trainers. I got two emails from her today and she seems willing to do whatever it takes to make this right.

  301. naturalmamadot says:

    weird that now that people have finally started talking about it on here and forums she wants to make things right. you cantjust get lazy until you are forced out of it, thats not how being a WAHM works, thats not how running a business works. ugh.

  302. AMomsHideout says:

    Jamie, before today when was the last time you spoke with her? And are you saying that you were told her DH messed up your order as well?

  303. Jamie says:

    311 yes, she said that her husband dropped stuff off at the po without postage. The last I had heard from her before today was in December.

  304. AMomsHideout says:

    Interesting. I PMd her on AMH last night about these issues but got no reply. I hope everyone gets their stuff and rest assured the AMH admin will not let this rest until they do.

  305. DeviateFromTheNorm says:

    Don’t three negs equally store closing on HC? Katie Bubbles should be shut down, whether or not she makes good on these new transactions. She’s only pretending to make an attempt because the fire’s been put to her, and her scamming ways are being uncovered.

  306. Taterbug says:

    314- Yes, but someone has to notify Karen.

  327. smartassmama says:

    My cousins’ birthdays are 2 days apart (and 9 years). I don’t think the oldest minds in their case because, well, he’s too old for parties and he’s got this whole caretaker, 3rd parent mentality.
    My husband, on the other hand, shares his birthday with the holidays. It’s less than a week before Christmas & he’s always hated bday presents in snowman paper, Santa on his cake, ugly reindeer sweaters, you name it!

    And more of the “go to this other site” business?puh-lease. I don’t go to DS for craft chat. I go for diaper chat, OT threads, and – of course – drama!

  328. piratebaby says:

    ugh, you guys are reminding me of my last baby’s birth. I was up for almost 24 hrs straight the night/day before with a puking kid, got checked and scheduled for an induction the next day bc I was 5 days overdue. Started feeling yucky that evening and raced to the hospital bc I couldn’t tell if it was stomach cramps or ctx. Ended up puking my guts up all night, dh had it too and spent the entire labor passed out on the sofa, woke him up when I got to 9.5 cms and needed help breathing. It sucked so bad.

  329. Kelolsen says:

    my oldest’s birthday is Christmas day. what do you do for that?He doesn’t realize what a big rip-off it is yet. I think he’ll hate it when he’s a bit older, but I also think he’ll lov eit when he’s all grown up b/c he’ll always be w/ his family on his birthday.

    so there…. 🙂

  330. Kelolsen says:

    I should add that what we’ve done is have regular christmas monring and the fancy meal around lunch time and then the whole afternoon is devoted to his birthday.

    meh my brothers and I had joint birthday parties every year until we were.. oh wait we still have them. haha We were all within a 2 week period(and now so is my husband and my SIL) so we just had one big party with all our friends.

    Maybe it was the whole living in a small town thing? but all our friends were mostly mutual. Then we each got to do one special thing with one friend.

  335. altaem says:

    Kelolsen – that seems like a great way to do it!

    MMP – sending you labor vibes, as long as you send some to me! I’m ready to have this baby out. This is officially the longest pregnancy I’ve had. DS was born at 40w, DD at 40w1d. I’m now at 40w2d.

    We do a big 1st birthday party, then just family dinners until they get old enough to “need” a party. If they want joint parties, they can have them…if they don’t, we’ll draw straws for weekends.

  336. fourFs says:

    My niece and nephew were born exactly 3 years and 20 minutes apart. My SIL did NOT want them born on the same day, but had very little say in the matter once labor started. :giggle: They are 14 and 11 now, and they always have a family party on the actual day, and the kids have individual parties with friends on opposite weekends on either side of their birthday. I don’t think they have ever minded (and it makes it easy on me to remember their birthday!)

  337. Sala says:

    344- re: the drug seeker. I betcha it has something to do with the “HCG diet really works, ask me how!” she’s sporting in her sig.

    Maybe she sells her BM. If you can find someone willing to buy it, its supposed to be worth lots of $$$. Though if I were buying her milk I wouldn’t want her taking a controversial prescription medication then pumping it into my child.

  339. smartassmama says:

    I saw that. What’s the HCG diet anyway? Everytime I see it I think of hCG – Human chorionic gonadotropin. The PG hormone. And everytime I see it I think – how do you consum that? I know it’s probably different, but after a woman’s peed on a bunch of sticks, that’s what hCG becomes! lol

    good point on selling it. Burning feel the same way as you.

    We are doing a joint party for Saedra and my 9 year old this year. Their bdays are almost exactly 2 weeks apart and I figure it will cost less plus they can have it at one of those fun places with the money we save just by doing one party.

  343. Myself says:

    We only do first bday parties (the children were getting the gimmes). We have three bdays within 16 days of each other in March/April and then the other two are 1 month 1 day apart.

    We will have a party for the little ones first bday and thats it.

    We do a special dinner for them and they get to do fun things during the day or just laze around. This year they are getting twin beds and mattresses plus bedding for their bdays (they choose the comforter, I chose the solid sheets to match) plus a pillowcase.

  344. KAL says:

They always have the tree down before my birthday.

    Re: the HCG diet. I googled it, and you are right on 346 and 348. It’s injections of hCG (as in what you would find in a preggers woman) that supposedly help one lose weight. It’s FDA approved for fertility treatment, but for no other reason. So that would make sense that she would want to purchase it but does not have a script for it.

    It’s a Snap is pretty good at what she makes but she rips off others’ ideas and bad mouths them everywhere so she can try to get sales.

  355. AMomsHideout says:

    Naturalmamadot & Jamie, Do you have any updates regarding Katie?

    thanks

  356. Elaine says:

    I know Marie first hand, as she is my daughter in law. She is not a scammer and there is no evidence to prove this (posts of unhappy customers does not mean the issues were not resolved).

    She first started Miki Bunz a few years back. She was new at it and admittedly made some mistakes; though she didn’t scam anyone. She was selling via eBay, which was mistake #1. She had one customer who lived in Hawaii, who didn’t receive her order within 4 weeks so put in a PayPal claim. That put a hold on her account (as she was new and had so many transactions in a short time), so she was unable to buy fabric online and hence a bunch of her orders were late…which created a chain reaction of worried upset customers. ALL of her Miki Bunz customers were either refunded eventually, or they received their items. No one was scammed. She decided to close Miki Bunz due to the nasty thread opened at the time she had her issues. We all urged her to not quit, that she had a nice little business, that her items were cute and she did have good feedback on her items from her happy customers (too bad the happy ones don’t start big threads).

    So, she decided to open Bambooty Baby. She was doing well too, and so proud of herself. Until she decided to help out her best friend and neighbor who you call “Little Otter”. She also wanted to start making diapers. So Marie introduced her to Diaper Swappers and helped her make a website. She did admittedly give her friend a feedback and it was returned. It was not unwarranted though, they did give each other diapers and were both happy with them. They were both banned, as I guess it was suspected that they were the same person as they logged onto Diaper Swappers with the same IP address and had similar websites and such. The 2 neg. feedback given were AFTER she was banned from worried upset customers since she could not log into her account to get thier contact info. to let them know what had happened.

    She did open another account with the Diaper Swappers, and tried again, but since she did not scam anyone with the other account name, and was not 2 people, what is the harm really? Also at this point, she decided to change the name of Bambooty Baby to Sweet Angel Baby, because she had stopped selling bamboo products. She did not close her Hyena store, she just changed the name so that people could see her 100% POSITIVE feedback from Bambooty, and see she was not running from that.

    She has ONE outstanding order that must have been lost, as indicated by the Tanya above. She has told me that she is working on that, as PayPal has froze the funds she can’t reimburse her until the 26th of March when they get released. She is very sick right now, and has been in the hospital for almost 2 weeks. She is pregnant and has a condition that can harm the baby, and when she saw this, she called me crying.

    I hope that you are all happy that you have ruined another hard working, sweet girls dreams, with all this nonsense. Why all the drama anyway? I can see the need for this site in a case where it is warranted, but there was no “detective work” done here, only some online searching that proves nothing. The internet is the perfect place to spread drama as things are left Half finished, and people only see what is written. She has decided to close up. NOBODY has been scammed by her. She had made some mistakes in the start up, but nobody is perfect and she rectified all of those issues.

    I hope that you can have a bit of decency and please remove this thread, as it is NOT accurate in the slightest. She had multiple users names after being banned for non-malicious issues; That is her only crime.

    She also let me know that the Baltic Jewlery mother who commented at the top was given a custom free diaper as a gift at the time of her babys arrival, as a welcome to the world gift. What a mean person Marie must be to do such things!

  357. DSDM2 says:

    Elaine, there are at least 4 open transactions from MONTHS ago that have not been made right. That does make someone a scammer.

  358. DSDM2 says:

    I want to also give you another perspective,

    Little Otter, is not her friend, it is her. The photos of the diapers being sold are the same exact photos Marie is selling. They even have the same carpet in the back ground.

    Diaperswappers does not allow multiple usernames. There are very few bannable rules that are so obvious. She knew this. She chose not to follow the rules.

    She has multiple open transactions that have not been made right. She refuses to pay people back and closes her paypal accounts after taking the money out, this way she doesn’t have to pay back the money.

    The Baltic Amber lady quoted also went on to tell about and show the diaper that was “free”. It was an unusable piece of crap that she can’t even give away FFS.

    She is a scammer. She did try to hide her past. She does have a lot of unhappy customers. I for one will never BST with her, and will encourage others not to as well.

    You should stop believing everything your daughter-in-law says… or maybe you are Marie? Hmm?

    Amomshideout,

    I am the buyer that naturalmomdot was talking about that had a recent issue with Katie Bubbles. I am still hoping to work things out with her, but I am starting to wonder if I will ever see what I bought or my money again. I haven’t heard from her since 3/15 despite sending her 2 emails requesting a shipping date and a tracking number when she does mail it out. According to her site on the day I ordered 3/6 she had 3,000+ postpartum pads and 300+ nursing pads in stock (supposedly) so I am not sure exactly what the delay would be if she really did loose my first package. She told me the story about the husband sending it out without postage and that she was sorry. She also then wrote an email asking me if I was expecting another baby and if it was a boy or girl, and then nothing. My date to escalate my dispute with paypal is April 3rd and if I don’t have my stuff by then I am going to go after her to get my money back. I am curious what exactly happened here. Back in September I had a great transaction with her and LOVED the product. The negative feedback for her HC wasn’t posted till 4 days after I placed my new order. If I would have saw that first I never would have ordered again. I ordered 6 postpartum pads and 4 sets of nursing pads to a total of $71.00 usd. I am giving her the benefit of the doubt right now but I am starting to get a bit angry. I will not let this slide. I really want what I ordered, but if it comes down to it I will fight for my money. Not the kind of thing you want to deal with while pregnant.

    I hope that really was Marie. Obviously we know the truth over here, it’s not like this has been some super-secret stuff.

    It’s kind of sad if she’s playing her MIL so hard she comes over to try to defend the lie-world. Next she’ll be asking her for money…. to fix the problems….for the baby’s sake….

    Hello again,
    I talked with Marie again last night as she popped in to help prove to me the truth of this matter, as I did call her on some of your comments. She brought me into her PayPal account and she has no disputes open and her account was at $25 as she had apparantly an order ot two while in the hospital. She sent the $20 owed to the Tanya above so that is now cleared up. She also brought me into her Hyena Car(?) account in which she has all positive feedback. I asked her about the pictures being the same on “Little Otters” website. She admitted that she let her friend use the pictures in order get her site up until she had time to make diapers and take pictures. I know her friend and KNOW that “Little Otter” is NOT Marie. “Little Otter” was new to the diapering world and never did have any orders, she was just very interested in it.

    I KNOW Marie, and have known her for years, and know her as a sweet loving mother. If there were issues they were due to NON malicious issues and perhaps a lack of professional knowledge (admittedly on her part) as she is an unorganized person. I know that she would never “scam” anyone, that is not her nature. I know that there are no un-resolved issues as of now.

    I think it is very unfair to judge someones work and call it “a piece of shit”. She tried, and she did her best, and did have many happy customers. I think that you need to have a bit more faith in people, and know that sometimes issues and unforseen unintentional misfortunes do happen; and when they do happen give the person a chance to resolve the issues.

    I will not be coming back on here to bicker back and forth, as I have 100% faith in Marie, and know her to be an honest person. I defend her, as I know how terrible the internet can be and how malicious. She asked me to not give a reply but I feel it necessary for people to know.

    as a retort to this comment: ‘It’s kind of sad if she’s playing her MIL so hard she comes over to try to defend the lie-world. Next she’ll be asking her for money…. to fix the problems….for the baby’s sake….’
    Marie would never ask me for money to fit an issue for her…I have even offered her and my son money in the past to help with things and it was never taken. They both have pride and are hard working people. Besides, there is no money needed as no open issues for her “fix” as I SAW with my own eyes. She also let me look in her email and I saw 2 orders not yet filled as they came in while she was in the hospital.

    god bless

    You can keep making new paypal accounts, and that’s what we’ve already been told she does. If she doesn’t actually have the multiple transactions unfulfilled- well, she ought to take care of that because a lot of people think she’s stealing their money. And your excuse for her, well a BUSINESS PERSON who is too disorganized to keep track of their business, who takes people’s money and doesn’t give them their stuff, is stealing. Disorganization is NOT an excuse here. In your sister, it’s an excuse- in a business it’s theft. It actually happens a lot, people start little diaper businesses and then, without real malice, fail miserably at them and steal people’s money because they just can’t keep things on a business level and they get too far behind. It’s completely THEIR OWN fault, though.

    There are very good reasons she’s been banned everywhere around the diaper world and it’s not because she’s being picked on. It’s because she’s the type who runs a business into the ground, then opens another one while fleeing the bad feedback from the last. We don’t want to see any more people like that. Hopefully she’s gotten that message.

    There are people who have seen the whole thing, there are people SHE STILL OWES MONEY, no matter how many paypal accounts she shows that look fine.

    She deserves this, because she did it. Also, her stories even to you don’t match, she said her account was frozen until the 26th? So she couldn’t fix the outstanding transaction? Now that doesn’t exist? Did you see the info about that in there too? or was it another account?

    I hope she does close, and no one else loses money to another diaper-seller who is “doing her best” but yet can’t bother to actually run a business.

    Another Katie Bubbles update:

    I received an email and tracking number on the night of the 18th. So far the tracking number comes up as – the postal service was notified of the package, but nothing has been mailed yet or it just not has been updated yet. I am wondering if the package will actually get mailed. Maybe I will get it, or maybe she will say it is missing again. Time will tell.

  367. try me, i'm new! says:

    to the MIL:

    in # 366 you say
    She has ONE outstanding order that must have been lost, as indicated by the Tanya above. She has told me that she is working on that, as PayPal has froze the funds she can’t reimburse her until the 26th of March when they get released. She is very sick right now, and has been in the hospital for almost 2 weeks.

    in # 374 you say
    I talked with Marie again last night as she popped in to help prove to me the truth of this matter, as I did call her on some of your comments. She brought me into her PayPal account and she has no disputes open and her account was at $25 as she had apparantly an order ot two while in the hospital.

    it is the 21st today. how is it she had a dispute that froze her acct until the 26th, yet today is the 21st and there are no disputes and her account was able to receive orders in the recent future? your stories are not matching up.

  368. try me, i'm new! says:

    *should be recent PAST

  369. Mylilboyblue says:

    Still haven’t received my Katie Bubbles order yet. Surprised? I am not. She “shipped” it out on Friday and yet the tracking number has NEVER been updated past the “we have been notified of your shipment but haven’t actually scanned it in yet” phase. Seriously it doesn’t take that long for them to update the tracking. I can only imagine that she hasn’t put it in the mailbox but just gave me that tracking number to shut me up.

    I am not going to let this go. Any google-fu masters want to find out what town she is located in so I can file a police report if paypal can’t get my money back? She has until April 2nd. If I don’t get my package by then I am going after her.

  370. naturalmamadot says:

    Ugh!!! I am sorry to hear that but yea, not really surprised. Along with the police report I do believe you can go after her for mail fraud. Ive seen ppl do that before but I forget what it has to involve to count as that.

  371. Mylilboyblue says:

    The funny thing is does she really think that I or paypal for that matter are really that stupid? She thinks that sending me a phony tracking number is going to make me wait forever for this phantom package?

    Do you really think I will ever see a dime back?

    This frickin sucks.

    Why even bother going through this song and dance. She should just say I scammed you. Neeenener, try and get your money back.

  372. Mylilboyblue says:

    Another Katie Bubbles update:

    So she still hasn’t responded and I still don’t have a package. Just a tracking number. Frustrated I have emailed her a couple of times today. I will give her till Saturday to respond or I am going to go the next level with Paypal.

    Oh yeah, her HC site has been suspended.

    Guess it is catching up with her.

  373. Mylilboyblue says:

    Okay so Katie sent me a new tracking number the other day and this one seems to work. If all goes well I will have my package today. But before she sent me the number and finally told me when my order was mailed I did get sort of nasty in an email and now I feel totally guilty. I sent her an email saying I was sorry when she sent me an email saying my email was hurtful. I get it, I was a bitch in the email, but really, look at it from my point of view. It sucks, but I have waiting too long with this back and forth for these things. I really hope that she works out what she has to with her other unsatisfied buyers. She seems like a really nice person, who knows for sure what is going on with her and her business and I hope that she works it out. She has alot of fans (me included) and her stuff was so cute. But I can’t say I will buy from her ever again, nor would she probably want to sell to me anyway. Depending on how the stuff looks I will leave her decent feedback. Her site is down now, so I don’t know if I can. In this WAHM world I guess it is buyer beware. Her stuff is cute, and if it is the same quality as my previous order I will love it, but the communication, shipping, and the all around weirdness of the transaction was just too much to take. So for now that is the end of my saga. Lets hope everything comes in good shape and I am happy with it. If I am not, I am not going any further with it, I have had enough. Lesson learned.

  374. Taterbug says:

    Mylilboyblue- Any updates?

  375. Mylilboyblue says:

    Yes! Actually I did receive my package. Everything was in good order as well. I will NEVER order from her again…but at least my outcome was good. Funny thing, she sent me the wrong tracking number so all along I could have been tracking it. If she just would have responded with the mailing date it would have been less stressful.

    So hopefully the others get their orders and she makes it right.

  376. Hello!
    I was scammed by BamBootyBaby (MARIE) and had part in having her banned from DiaperSwappers. The product that she sent me after taking my money, was nothing but junk. I’d be lucky if it fit a cabbage patch doll. The insert was so short, there is no way that this diaper was functional. She got very defensive when I contacted her with photo’s of the size of the “one size” diaper, etc etc. She asked what I’d like to do, that she’d send me out another diaper etc, but I never recieved anything.
    No refund (as promised), no replacement diaper. I did some google-ing and started to realize that there was another poster on DS that was constantly praising BBB, and vice versa. After looking through product photos, I realized that it was likely the same person. Contacted DS moderators, who were fantasic in trying to help me resolve the problem.

    I never received anyting back from the scammer however, her being banned from DS and sites such as this where people that do thier research can find out firsthand the reputible people, is payment enough!
