How does someone get raves for so long with such crappy work? Is there a back story? I heard something about the WAHM threatening to sue over feedback? Anyone have details?

$12 for WHAT???

Posted: October 18, 2010 by THE Drama Mama in Now THAT was a bad transaction.

$12 PLUS shipping for this? Really? The seller needs to refund the $12.00, PLUS shipping and have the buyer FFS it.

WWYD? Item not as described, issues…

I recently bought a diaper I’ve wanted FOREVER! The mama is new here (has less than 5 ratings but 100% feedback), so I took a chance since I can’t find another one anywhere. Everything went fine, she was very nice, and I got the diaper today. It’s a Fuzzi Bunz, and the waterproof stuff has completely come off of 80-90% of the diaper! So I can’t use it at all. I mean, I guess it could be used as a fitted. I paid $12 for it (no insert). I sent the mama a message and she’s gotten back to me quickly, offered a refund immediately, but when I asked about getting shipping back as well, she refused. Her solution is that she can refund the $12 (which I will have fees taken out for anyways) and I can send it back, or she can refund $6 (which I will also have fees taken and I can keep the diaper. I don’t really find either solution acceptable. I’m not wanting to make money off of her! I’m just wanting to be not be out anything (other than pp fees) in the end since I am not at fault. She said basically why should she double pay to ship a diaper. Um… because you sent a diaper that isn’t as described and can’t be used. I’m wanting to know if I’m in the wrong for wanting a full refund plus shipping back to her? WWYD? 

Here are pics of the diaper:

I agree, it’s the same as a person “selling” diapers here on Diaper Swappers, receiving the money from the buyer then not mailing them the diapers. Worse than that, LYING to the person about the diapers being lost in the mail with no possible way to track them.

Their “karma” will come back to bite them right?

Who has more info? Chey apparently can offer advice but can’t follow her own?

Is she new, or someone who came back again?

I think I’ve been duped

I had a hinky feeling about this from the beginning.

I posted something on my ISO and mentioned that I had pp for it. A user pm’d me and said she had it and asked me to make an offer. I made an offer and told her I was interested but wanted to see pics. She was a new member (about a month) and didn’t have any feedback yet. When I asked about feedback, she said she had sold a bunch of stuff and would have feedback soon. I paid a week ago. Yesterday I pm’d her for an update. She hasn’t been online since I paid and I checked her feedback again. Well, she has 1 positive review. I checked that members feedback and she has 1 pos and 1 neg. I think these two members are the same person. I read some of their posts, and really I think they are the same person. Even their user names are similar. I just filed a claim with paypal and don’t know what else to do. I’m so

You were one step from being scammed. (You were just lucky that she or he didn’t clear their PP account.)

Neutral or negative feedback?

I purchased an item from FSOT on June 25, and got a shipping notification from paypal on June 28 saying that the shipper had created a label. I waited and waited (impatiently, of course, because it’s fluffy mail!) and it never came and the tracking never updated to show anything other than “Electronic Shipping Info Received”. So I finally sent the seller a PM on July 12th…heard nothing. Sent another PM on the 17th…still nothing. So I open the transaction details in paypal to start a dispute and the recipient is not me! I started the dispute with paypal and was refunded my payment within a few hours.
Do I leave negative feedback or just neutral since I got my money back? I hate to leave negative feedback, but that’s what I’m leaning towards since I got no response from the seller. A neutral feedback still would give them 100% rating and I think other buyers should be aware.

That is just bad practice. Who is the WAHM?

Correct me if I’m wrong…

but if you’re 6+ weeks behind on orders, isn’t it a bit irresponsible to continue doing games and contests creating more? I realize that WAHM’s need to earn a living, but that seems like time better spent getting caught up on current customers.

I should add, this does not pertain to any DS mamas.

Feedback or Contact???

Two issues here:

Issue #1

On June 2nd, I asked a seller if the Small Swaddlebees AIOs she had listed were Mini Econappis, which I was IDSO. I had never heard of Small Swaddlebees AIOs but they seemed similar and at a great price. I made the decision that I need AIOs for my NB and since I am not finding Mini Econappis on FSOT or Spots, these will have to do. When the 11 Small Swaddlebees AIOs and they seemed used and had EBF just like she mentioned in the listing.

On June 28th, I took out the 11 Small Swaddlebees AIOs out for the first time since the day they arrived. When I was taking pictures of the inside of the Small Swaddlebees AIOs I noticed 5 of the 11 had looser leg elastic compared to the others. I was not laying them all out side by side when I originally checked them over the day they arrived with the Mutts to see that 5 of them have loose leg elastic. When I realized the different conditions in the Small Swaddlebees AIOs, it was over 20 days since purchase and arrival so I was not sure what recourse I would have but I felt that I should leave relevant, warranted and appropriate feedback since the loose leg elastics were NOT mentioned in the listing. Price may reflect condition in the seller’s mind but the true condition was not conveyed in pictures or in words in her listing therefore again misleading and not fully truthful.

Issue #2:

On Wednesday June 2nd at 7:18pm EST, I purchased 10 NB Mutt Lot. I got an email from PayPal shipping at 3:08am EST on Saturday morning, June 5th, that the seller created a shipping label for 10 Mutts.

The package arrived on June 7th and I was FLOORED! The condition of these Mutts was horrid. EVERY SINGLE ONE had holes! The listing had ZERO mention of wear. It actually said all snaps and elastic are great. I contacted her and did not receive a response. I wrote her again and shortly after I did get an email apologizing and saying she would send PayPal immediately as soon as she got the babies to bed. Before I could reply, she sent another message retracting she would send a refund and told me she would refund only after having the Mutts back in her possession. I politely told her that I do not feel that is an appropriate avenue to go down given her dishonestly. She refunded me for the 10 mutts and the return shipping and I shipped them back to her.

The holes on the Mutts did affect the function since holes were near the snaps leaving it difficult to snap and unsnap without further ripping the already over bleached fabrics. Even though the lot of 10 Mutts was inexpensive, it was listed without true representation of the condition. Snaps and elastic were stated as great, which my photos prove is not true. No issues were stated in the listing. It is important to list EVERYTHING. What I expect to receive when I purchase $4 per diaper is to get EXACTLY what a listing states. Cost does not matter if the listing is dishonest, misleading or vague.

So, what if both purchases were from the same seller that became a combined transaction given they were shipped together on Saturday, June 5th? Would you contact the seller with what you found upon closer inspection of the Swaddlebees and voice your dissatisfaction? Would you just leave negative feedback without giving the seller a chance handle the matter? Would you share when contacting the seller that ideally a refund and return is beyond appropriate given a now pattern of dishonestly in their listings? After 25 days, it the choice of the seller to refund them or not but is it my right to leave appropriate feedback of the issues I recently found and were clearly not stated?

Here are VERY detailed photos of the 11 Small Swaddlebees AIOs and of the Lot of 10 Mutts
