Her name "the pink panther" describes her to a tee, The pink panther gang was a band of jewelry thieves in the 1950s. Im guessing around the time this lady was born. Well, her username is fitting.
I dealt with this person on three separate transactions. The last one she out right stole from me. I have pics to prove it and the messages from her indicate it as well. She stole anything and everything she wanted, including all my signature pieces, out of a jewelry lot I had listed and she won, the bid exceeded my buy it now price. She had to have it. This was premeditated and planned from the start. Not only did she keep what she wanted, she replace it with crap jewelry, my guess it was the jewelry she didn't want from other lots. I told her to return all of my 11 1/2 lbs. She made sure to tell me it was only 8 1/2 lbs. Thats just bullshit. It was 11 1/2 lbs. Well, she returned the lot, 60 % replaced with jewelry that wasn't mine and 25 % missing entirely.
I had pics proving that my jewelry was in her current auctions because they were the same pieces pictured in my listing. She didn't have the decency to wait until after eBay settled the case before she displayed pics of MY jewelry in her lots (priced a hell of a lot higher than mine by the way). You can see clearly see the jewelry she stole in my original auction photos. The woman has no soul. I hope I never cause anyone the amount of stress and frustration she has caused me. How does she sleep at night? How does she look herself in the face everyday when looks in the mirror knowing she cheats hard working individuals on a weekly basis! It makes me physically ill she got away with this.
She's nothing but a predator, targeting new sellers on eBay that will go any lengths to earn a few positive feedback comments so Paypal won't hold their money. The first time I encountered this witch, she bought a lot from me three months and bitched and moaned about the condition the lot was in when she received it in the mail. I can tell you this, it was in better shape than most of the lots I have personally bought on eBay I can guarantee you that. I felt so bad, I sent her a display case full of retail ready jewelry and jewelry cleaner and even paid for the shipping out of my own pocket just to make up for her disappointment. I changed the way I pack my jewelry because of this woman. I vowed never to make anyone else feel that kind of disappointment again. It was all an act to get what she could out of me.
It takes me hours upon hours to repair, clean, sterilize, card, package and tag this jewelry. It's certainly not worth the hours I spend preparing, the equipment and materials needed to do it, and the original cost of the jewelry I'm intending to refurbish. Add this bullshit and I'm done!
Anyway, when I was sure the second package I sent her was delivered, I messaged her to ask if she received what I sent and if she did and was happy with it, could she please leave me positive feedback. I was brand new at the time and was having to come out of pocket for shipping every time someone bought from me. The bitch didn't even bother to respond.
The only reason I dealt with her again was because she changed her username on eBay and they only allow you to view sales from the last 60 days. I couldn't find the sale info that would confirm my suspicion. Her name and address looked very familiar, I couldn't positively place her. Still I followed my instinct and canceled the transaction and gave her a full refund. In the Paypal notes I made sure to add that I had had previous problems with this buyer. She messaged me in a tone that suggested we had never had previous business dealings before. I told her that's not what I meant and left her with the promise of first dibs on the next auction I listed. I didn't know you could block problem buyers. I sure wish I had. It would have prevented all this from happening.
She bought my last auction, and I'm paying the price. My paypal account is negative over $150 because of her and it will stay that way. I refuse to pay back a thief.
I worked so damn hard, just for her to turn around and make $150 plus $500 (which is the current bid on her current listing which is displaying the stolen jewelry from my lot) dollar profit off of me. She even had the audacity to call my lot "cheap mall jewelry." Well, if it was so cheap why the hell is it in her current listing? Her reply after I accused her of stealing and replacing the jewelry in the returned lot during our case correspondence was "I make thousands a month on eBay, I think they will decide in my favor." Cocky, unethical witch. I'm physically sick over this. I put my heart into that lot as I do all the others, just for me to get cases from other sellers for not being able to pay them because the status of my account is negative. I can't believe with all the evidence I provided eBay they still ruled in her favor. I'm utterly shocked, disgusted and horrified. I'm done selling on eBay.
There is no justice for sellers. It's a damn shame too. I had nothing but positive feedback and genuinely liked what I sold them. But I'm not giving up completely. I plan to open a blog dedicated to voicing eBay injustice. There I will post all the evidence proving this person is a thief. My username is babyblue_from82 if anyone cares to see my profile.
