Have you been a victim of this seller on Etsy? They were selling custom made bridal outfits and have recently had their shop closed. Many brides were a victim of this scam. The seller sold beautiful custom clothing sets that could be custom embroidered with your new name or other bridal information. They were beautiful and all over pintrest. I unfortunately got sucked into this seller’s scam like others.
When their shop was open it stated that orders could take up to 8 weeks to complete. If you have a problem with a paypal transaction you must file a case within 45 days, so guess what, once those 8 weeks are up and you still don’t have your item…you’ve also lost your right to get a refund through paypal’s dispute resolution. This is the scam that this seller relies on. They also target brides knowing we are more sensitive and willing to wait for something so beautiful.
I know many people might have been a victim so I wanted to share where to file a police report if you have been victimized by this person.
Please contact the Starbuck police department in Minnesota at firstname.lastname@example.org.
They are extremely helpful and will help you proceed with prosecuting this seller for theft. They say they are aware of the seller so I think this may have been going on for some time. Don’t delay, send in your report now. This person needs to be prosecuted and we can make that happen. I’d post more personal information but feel it isn’t appropriate. If you go to your order page you can still link to the sellers feedback where other buyers are posting helpful information such as the seller’s phone number.
Good luck and please let me know if you need any help or information. I hope this stops others from buying from any seller under these aliases as they are likely the same person.
