Swapper Complaints Thread (aka: BAD swaps!)

I thought I'd start this separately from the Recommendations thread so it's easier to find the complaints. I know I didn't always have time to weed through the old long thread before it disappeared. :) I have nothing bad to post, but thought I'd just get it going before the other thread got too long. :)

    I've given ample time and now is the time to post an unsuccessful swap with Curl Interupted.
    Here's the story and if anyone wants proof (with emails) I have them. I won't post them publicly but I surely will privately If you are wondering whether or not to do swaps with her.
    Anyway.... I pay pal'd her on the 31st of Dec. for some shampoo, on the 18th of Jan. after I have received nothing, I emailed her. She emailed me back because she forgot to send it out. (I have the email still)
    I really wanted this shampoo so I ordered it on line and received that package a few days later.
    By the 28th of Jan. still nothing from Curl Interupted. I emailed her again and she said she mailed it out. Still nothing.
    So, that's my story. I personally will not do swaps with this person ever again.
    She didn't make an offer to make good.
    I have done that with people if I don't insure it.
    I will post IF I receive it but if you don't hear from me, it means I never received anything.

    bump!

    Here's the old thread that was started so we could list BAD swappers. Feel free to add their names here.

    Thanks for digging this one up. :D

    I hope this gets stickied along with the good swapper thread.

    So for the record I had a bad transaction with HighMantenance/Strand-ed/CurlInterupted.
    Sent money via paypal, never received an item. I had to file a complaint with paypal to get my money back.

    Swappers and buyers beware.
    I have kinks, coils and curls on this head.

    That's awful!!! She really ought to be banned from this site altogether!
    Can't she be found thru her ISP address and banned?
    I know they do that at some of the other boards that I frequent.
    I'm glad you got your money back. I waited too long to get mine back - as I tried to trust her and believe in her.
    I'll never do that again! She STEALS!!!!

    Hi - she has 2 user names on MUA - the other one is HighMain10ence. I left a negative token for her and I'll see if I get one in retaliation. Swappers beware!

    Weird. I swapped with Curl Interrupted, but there was no exchange of money. I sent her mini-samples of Elucence Shampoo and Conditioner and she sent me samples of some stuff. She was very nice to me and never gave me reason to question her integrity. But I don't know her personally and have never bought anything from her.

    I'm sorry some of you had bad experiences.

    this is just a general warning to everyone selling items on this board: wrap all checks, money orders, and money (yes, i have received cash for payment before :o ) in a sheet of paper before placing them in a sealed envelope. or mail it in an opaque envelope, even better. my local post office told me to do this because someone has been stealing money orders in the mail. i've been having some issues with this myself in a sell, so please keep this in mind when you're sending payment for something.

    also, kind of an aside, but i really appreciate well wrapped packages. one of my first swaps here were very poorly packaged and leaked all over (plus it rained which didn't help), so i am very THANKFUL when someone takes the time to wrap products carefully. please please PLEASE use tape to seal bottles and tubes, and if you can (especially with partially filled tubes) expel the air from the tube prior to sealing it. Thanks! :)

    :sad:sad20gif I am so sad to have to post this, but here goes…. I sent LipGlassHoney 2 brand new, unopened jars of Boots & a generous sample of Jessicurl Confident Coils on May 18/05. She was supposed to send me 2 new jars of ORS Lock & Twist in return. I have received nothing. She will not answer my emails or the PM’s I sent her. I know that she has opened the PM’s cause they are no longer in my outbox, but she has just ignored them.

    Now, she was getting the better end of this deal anyway cause the ORS only costs $3.99 each, while I paid (including shipping), $12 each for the Boots. But I did not care about that cause I really wanted the ORS. Plus I paid $11.75 to send it to her via airmail, so I am out a total of $35.75!!! :(

    Please do not swap with LipGlassHoney, it appears that she steals from unsuspecting curlies!!! She seemed like such a nice person too, she even offered to buy me anything I wanted from the local beauty supply stores near where she lives. Boy, am I glad that I did not take her up on that, or I would be out even more money!!! She also seems to have disappeared from the site.

    I think that from now on I will only swap with curlies who are on the Recommended Swappers list. I can’t afford to get burnt like this again!! :x

    NOTE: If I hear from her or receive my package I will edit this post.

    I think she now goes by another name, and she did say that she was going out of town for a while and would have limited computer access, so maybe she will still get back to you....

    No, I do not go by another name. I have no reason to at this time. I am an adult who has nothing to hide and it would have been much cheaper for me to order from Boots myself. I have no reason to steal from "unsuspecting curlies" because I can always buy what I want. Your package, along with 4 others that I sent out using an online USPS label, was returned to me. Yes, I have been out of the US for a while. I just returned this morning. I just received you PM. I will respond once, resend your items and detach myself from further communications with you.

    That is fine by me, I will alter my above post if I receive your package.

    BTW, you DID NOT just now open my PM's, they have been gone from my outbox for ages. I knew as soon as you opened them. As a matter of fact I was online at the same time you were & waited to see if you would reply, but you did not. Others will know what it means that the PM's have been gone from my outbox, it means that they were read by you long before now.

    If you were going to be away, it would have been appropriate for you to let people know, especially when they are expecting to get a package from you. What did you imagine I was going to think??

    First of all, I do not acknowledge people when they stoop to calling me a liar. I received your PM and responded accordingly. I am not faulting you for what you think. I was not on vacation. I had an emergency with my father. Your belief or disbelief of that will not cause me to lose any sleep. When I sent your package and left, I was not anticipating it coming back to me so I had no reason to contact you. I, however, did NOT read your PMs. My soror, who was staying at our house, used my computer and very well may have done so. I do not know and did not think to ask. I have received and sent PMs so I know how it works, I do not need confirmation from anyone else. All I can tell you is when I read them. Since you want to continue to attack me, I believe you know how this is going to end. Peace

    OK, LipglassHoney, I will not stoop to fighting with you.

    I got nothing from you & no response to my PM's or emails & I posted on here accordingly. I am not attacking you. I am the one who got nothing out of this deal. My swapping record on this board stands for all to see.

    I see from your post that I am going to get nothing from you, so this is over & my bad rec stands.

    Please do not PM me again. I am done with this & moving on now....

    Peace out!

    Wow! lol
    I am not fighting with you and for you to get on my level would be going uphill not down sweetheart.
    I see that you're really good at the whole jumping to conclusions thing. I never said that I wasn't going to send you anything. Please do not send me any more nasty messages. I try to limit the amount of filth in my life. You have a problem but that is not for me to work out. I told you that I understand why you thought you had been gotten. I am not even asking you to take down your little recommendation. It doesn't stop my world from turning. You can keep your nasty and dishonest post up for as long as this site stands. I couldn't care less about what you think of me or anyone on here who believes these things about me. Keep your cliques and you internet friends. This site is not my life and while I have met some wonderful, kind and warm spirited people on here, I do not look to man for acceptance. I am a woman who keeps her word so I am standing by what I said but if it makes you feel like a woman to spread nastiness, then I will mention you in a prayer and leave it at that.
    Peace and God bless.

    Bad transaction with Rastacurl Revisited My checks were cashed but I've never received anything. My PM's are also unopened. She previously used The Sakkah Project. She seems to change names.

    Beware of someone who lives in Brooklyn and complains their Paypal was suspended 9 months ago!. If you PM, I will provide her name and address.

    I will also happily edit if I ever receive the products.

    Same thing happened to me. Check cashed but no product. I have been waiting for her to respond to my pm, but now I understand why.

    She changed her name what seems like three times in two days.

    I am hoping she sends the item.

    If you are lurking...please send me a pm I would love the product for which I bought.

    I should have known better when she said her Paypal acct. was suspended but the PJ got the best of me. I know there is at least one other person out there who also didn't receive products from her.

    If she see this, I will remove the post if my products are received. I really would like the items.

    Yes, this same thing happened to me. The check was cashed several weeks ago; and, still no product or further communication. I am aware that people believe that she has been banned from here; and, I am chalking this up as a lesson learned. I have had so many wonderful swaps with so many wonderful curlies that this just makes me even more grateful for the rest of you guys.

    I am also willing to remove and/or update this post should I receive the product. I understand that life happens and things come up that might be out of someones control; but, I also wanted everyone to know how this transaction has proceeded thus far, so, others may make well informed swapping decisions.
