Well, I tried giving the benefit of the doubt, but now I am very concerned with my transaction with Yumedust. I am experiencing some communication difficulties with her, and decided to page her as one last warning before opening a paypal dispute. Here is the general time line of actions since we started this transaction. I PMed her on 06/26 to purchase the Juri B head she had for sale. I sent and echeck, and told her that I would let her know as soon as it clears. She replied to me in a timely manner, and said that was fine The last time we spoke was on Wednesday July 2nd. This was the PM I sent to her, and her last reply to me: Originally Posted by Dybbuk Hi Katie! Thank you for your patience, I know paypal can take a long time to transfer money. Due to some unforseen circumstances I won't be home when you send off the head. Do not worry, my roommate will be at my address to recieve it! So it really is no big deal, but I wanted to let you know in case it seems like I never recieved him~ I won't have him in my hands till August ><;; Thanks again, Please let me know when he has shipped so I can let her know to be on the lookout for a small box. ^^ Best Regards, Natalie Hi Natalie! thanks for letting me know, sadly I'm super poor right now and will have to wait until the payment transfers to my bank account to mail him, it'll be there by friday for sure hugs, katie When Friday rolled around, I recieved no PM, no update, and decided to wait before PM'ing her again. I consider myself a patient person, so I generally don't get concerned very easily because people have their own lives and it can become busy quite easily. However, I finally returned her a PM to check the status of our transaction over a week later giving her plenty of time to recieve the money and hopefully ship the package; at this point money has left my hands, and has gone into hers, and I think a short reply, and explanation of the delay is reasonable. I sent her a PM asking politely for an update, on Sunday 7/13. I have not heard from her at all, but looked on her profile and saw that her : Last Activity: was Today 02:50 AM. Like I said, I am a patient individual, but when a seller begins to ignore PMs completely, is when I become a little anxious and suspicious of sellers. I would like to hold off before making this a paypal dispute because I would much rather have the doll head than my money back. --Yumedust, please get back to me the next time you log in! If something occured to cause the shipping delay I fully understand that sometimes things like that happen, BUT...I do not understand nor appreciate sending someone $100 of my money and not get any reply concerning the whearabouts of my goods. If I do not hear anything from you at the end of the week, I will open a dispute on paypal. I hope it does not come to that, and we can just work this out, but I am letting you know right now so it does not come as a surprise.
