I am generally a nice person.
I am generally very understanding.
I am not posting about my life right now, but instead a warning about a very shady person who takes advantage of those who've lost children.
Lets say on October 6, 2012 you ordered something from person who makes grief and remembrance stuff. Lets say on June 6, 2013 you still didn't have that item. How would you feel?
I got ripped off by someone on facebook and all I want to do is get the word out. There has always been some sort of excuse as to why she couldn't get this product out to me. 2-8 weeks is the normal shipping time. Oh, but then she had a baby so add in maternity time. Oh but then there was holidays, here is me<<< hmm ok, I understand, things happen I get it. Then as the months go by and I'm watching her take in new orders and do specials over and over I start becoming concerned.
You would think, a normal person would go, hmm I am really behind.. NO more orders until I get this stuff out. Normal person behaviour. What does she do instead? Specials after specials. I send email after email being very respectful many of which were just not answered. Another close friend is in the exact same boat. When the owner actually replies the emails are just snappy.
I am a customer, I paid you for a product and its been 8 months.
Every single time we email her she goes on to her facebook page and is, "woe is me. People are so mean, they don't understand I'm doing this out of the bottom of my heart." If you write on her page asking about your stuff and you are not in the 2-8 week window your comment is deleted. If you get at all self-righteous and actually question her, not even rude just, "Hey this has been long time now what is going on". Immediate banning of your comment privilege. You can now read but no longer able to comment on her page. Immediately everyone on her page is comforting her, how dare they not understand. We are so mean, so hurtful, she is so kind, she is so sweet. No one can say anything because they no longer have the right to have a differing opinion.
I'm sorry but I see no other way around saying this. She is a thief. She took our money and won't give it back. Won't give us our item.
She even went so far as to put pics up of our items in March. Its June, they are little beaded bracelets. They would ship in a small envelope for 50 cents.
She has never stopped taking in orders. She even started a new business. She asks for donations over and over.
It is only ten dollars.
It's not about the money. All I wanted was her Megan's name. All I wanted was the bracelet for my collection. It was never about the money. It was about taking care of your customers, being respectful and not stealing from people who only want their childs name on things.
In the long run of things, I never expect to see the money nor the product. I am however concerned that others might be in this same boat. I am concerned that others will be ripped off by her as well.
I am a mother of an angel.
Please be vigilant and aware before you order from her.
I have had a few people ask why I don't have paypal take care of it. She smartly makes it known there is a 2-8 week shipping window. Paypal will only let you make claim within 45 days.
