My story is pretty similar to this one: http://www.denofangels.com/forums/showthread.php?t=59724&highlight=gottabegenki With the small exception that I haven't had any resolvement as of yet. On March 20 I saw a sales thread by gottabegenki (the thread itself is deleted now, as far as I can see), with a Tender Too, which I have been looking for. I jumped on the idea, and paid her on March 31. A while later I got a mail saying that she had been delayed with some personal stuff, and that he'd be sent out soon. Then, on April 20, I got a PM saying she had lost her Internet and couldn't get my address, but that he would be shipped out the next day. I have not gotten any confirmation that he has been shipped, and I have sent several PMs on here as well as e-mails to her -- without getting any response, despite the fact that there's been activity on her LiveJournal. I'm giving her a few more days to get back to me, and then I will have no choice but to file a dispute claim with PayPal and hopefully get my money back. This is the first bad experience I've had in all my buying and selling online, and if this turns out to be nothing but I scam I would be terribly disappointed. Edit: I'm filing a claim with PayPal today - despite sending more messages and mails to gottabegenki, warning her that I'm going to file a claim, she has not gotten back to me. I've sent her mails and PMs since the 27th of April - her LiveJournal has been updated three times since then, so she is obviously online. This leads me to conclude that she has scammed me, and that I won't be getting my doll. I'm incredibly disappointed -- should teach me not to be so trusting. Edit number II: Quite a bit later now - but the issue has finally been resolved, so I wanted to edit this post. I filed a dispute claim with PayPal, but got a mail a week or so later saying that the money was gone, so there was nthing they could do. About a week or two after that again, I suddenly got a refund from gottabegenki. I still haven't heard one single word from her, but at least I did get my money back in the end.
