Hello, I'm just looking for backup with a transation I have been working on with Hachi for a number of months now. There may or may not be a problem but I am growing suspicious. I bought a DIM Lloyd from Hachi through the marketplace on an extended layaway that began late this spring. Hachi was very kind, very friendly and very communicative through most of the process... I considered myself lucky, since it was my first purchase on DoA, not to mention my first doll. I completed payment at the end of June/beginning of July. For my part, my final payment was delayed due to the fact that I lost my job unexpectedly. I was not about to be too anal about ship dates because Hachi was very understanding. From that point on I had barely any contact from her... I sent her several PMs, as did my friend eva_tsukino, who will be picking up the package on my behalf. Neither of us has heard a word from her since July 24th. We have since sent her about five PMs between us. Before that she hadn't contacted me since June 30th. Apparently her absence was due to a vacation, but she had been on the forum almost every other day throughout that period. She promised early in the process to send a tracking number and any other information once the doll was in the mail.... But having not recieved this info nor any response to our PMs, my friend and I decided to put up a page request. I truly hope this is all some kind of confusion, or that it is a case of doll-things coming second to life circumstances. I had been quite impressed and pleased with Hachi up until a month ago. I don't wish any bad blood, I am only concerned. I hope this can be resolved as soon as possible.
