Post by amysbabiesndolls » Thu Feb 09, 2017 10:21 am

Has anyone else been a victim of this woman? I purchased her Connolly back on Feb 1st and she said she was going to provide tracking the following day. Nothing. I messaged her again on the 3rd and she said that she would send tracking and ship the following day. STILL nothing. 8 days later and no tracking number... no baby. And now it looks like she has de-activated her account on here so I can't reach her!

Update: I finally got ahold of her she said "Conolly was shipped and should have arrived awhile ago"... Hmmm but when I asked for a tracking number it shows it was just dropped off yesterday. So something is still fishy... at the very least she didn't ship the baby when she said she would... didn't keep me updated and in the end STILL lied about when it was actually released to the USPS. I won't believe anything until I have a baby in my arms. This has taken my trust down a notch. :(

I hope you get your money back Amy. Did she have any feedback on here? Personally I only deal with people who have a good reputation and have feedback to back it up or someone to vouch for them. You should be reimbursed. I take it you didn't pay friends and family? I'd report it to Steve anyway to see if he can block her from resubscribing under a different username.
Love,
Lee

This is one of the things that has really begun to bother me and make me mad -- DF being viewed as a sales place rather than a group of people who enjoy dolls and exchange information and support. There are so called "new members" who never say hello or tell anything about themselves or their dolls. They join and immediately are either selling or buying and that's it. I simply will not deal with someone like that because I don't trust them. Ruth

I totally agree with you !!!! I would think the right way to go about joining a new forum would be to post a thread to introduce yourself and then spend some time getting to know people and posting on the forum. Then maybe making even some small purchases like clothing or something to get some feedback. Instead so many first time posts seem to be I am selling such and such a doll for $2000, please email me for photos as I can't post pictures. Are they for real? Would never respond to such a post or even consider buying from them.
Hugs,
Nadia

How do I contact Steve? So this woman is also scamming people on Ebay AND she just started a Facebook site saying she will make affordable custom reborns! The nerve of this woman! I have filed a dispute with PayPal. Luckily I did NOT send as Friends and Family. I am to the point where I will NOT send money that way anymore because there are too many dishonest people in this world! It's so sad!

I recently had an inquiry from someone about buying a Molloy baby from me after she joined just a few days ago! She wanted me to communicate via email "I am going to give you my email and cell just incase I
don't look on DF for awhile." -- that really bothered me since that seemed to be what she was interested in -- getting the doll and my email! Maybe I am just too cautious but she never said anything about herself, her dolls or even where she lives. I did not respond. I contacted Steve who essential said he understood my feelings and was amazed himself about some of the things he is aware of. That tells me there is not much he can do on this forum even when he understands the concerns. So it is up to us. Now maybe this lady is pure as the driven snow -- but a nice "hello here is who I am" would go a long way!!! Ruth

Uh oh! I used to follow her account on Instagram - but there was so much drama on there that I decided I would rather share my hobby with people on YouTube and DF, which I also felt to be much safer (since people often pretend to be someone they're not on IG.) Very sad to see someone scamming people at all but especially on this site... it should be a safe haven.

I must say I have met some really wonderful people through my reborn collecting over the past year - I wouldn't change it for the world! When bad things like this happen, I have my small circle of reborn pals who understand, support me, give me advice and lift my spirits - they are the best!

I've never been a victim of this specific person, but after being scammed before I feel for you, I'm so sorry this happened to you!

Also, I appreciate the reminder that I shouldn't have jumped on and started selling here right away before even saying hello. I've been a member here before, but had to cancel my subscription, so I never did reintroduce myself when I just signed up, I think I just forgot it was a new account haha! I wish I hadn't let my account die out, I had some feedback on there! Off to reintroduce myself now.

It's very sad how things have gotten. I recently read a post on Facebook of a lady that had nothing but stress and disappointment since she got into this hobby. Sounds like she bought and sold a few dolls before she found the right one, but, after everything, she plans not to buy or sell ever again. I guess it would be hard for those trying to get into this hobby and not knowing how to safeguard against being taken advantage of. Why have things gotten so bad? I can't understand those who want to take advantage of others, don't they have a heart?
Happy Dolly Days,

Hugs,
Carolyn

I agree with Ruth & Nadia! I've been noticing a lot of the join & immediately begin buying/selling behavior recently. I refuse to deal with them. I may have lost sales, but it's too much stress for me. :toast:
Merry Christmas!!!

Doll fan used to be a place where I felt totally comfortable purchasing a doll; seems most were reputable and had been members for quite a while and were all so friendly and helpful. Not any more....it is really sad that even a forum where we all could enjoy our hobby has turned untrustworthy.

I do hope your doll arrives and meets your anticipation of her! I am so happy to hear that you didn't pay friends and family....I never do it or ask anyone to do it unless I've done business with them for quite some time and am sure that we are happy with our past exchanges. Once that happens, I'm doing business with friends and it's all good. This is a wonderful forum to meet like minded ladies and share our love of all things dolly....and let's face it, we need each other cuz a lot of the rest of the world doesn't understand us at all!
