I am finally ready to share a major doll scam horror story that happened to me....and if you have a similar story, or just one that you personally consider to be scary or sad, please feel free to share. I am going to request that even though we are angry with those who have scammed us, we should keep all names and website names out of this, for our own security.
Last year, I was befriended by another online doll enthusiast, who shall be known as "X". Anyway, "X" befriended me, and, despite the fact that they were super, super, super friendly toward me, I behaved stupidly, making a deal to trade a ton of items!
I involved my family in the deal, as they helped me to shop for the items, sometimes contributing money to meet the high item count. When we factored in shipping and handling costs, everything came to over $100.00!!!
I have waited for over a freaking year....and....nothing! Abso-freaking-lutely nothing! Zip. Zilch. Nada from this individual!
Absolutely CATFISHED! :( Catfiished....for dolls that have more than likely been sold on eBay by now! :( It's sad how greedy some people are, and how stupidly others can be, due to both greed and a naive attitude.
Well, I won't be fooled ever, ever again! From now on, I'm saving my own money for my own dolls, thanks, unless, of course, there's an actual, genuine sales agreement!
