First, I apologize if I am breaking any rules, as I am not a regular member here and am not fully versed in forum's rules. But this is an EMERGENCY, and I really need your help. My friend has had her Volks Mini Super Dollfie Head STOLEN. The head was a limited-edition Akira: http://www.superdollfie.net/sd/gentei/akira.html She sent it into be customized to who she believed was a trustworthy customizer. First the customizer offered to buy the head from her, and my friend refused the offer. Then the customizer failed to post pictures of the reportedly customized doll, even after numerous requests. At the same time, the customizer was posting photos of other dolls, proving that she both had the time to take photos and a working camera. Then, even worse, the customizer DISAPPEARED. She stopped responding to emails for nearly a month, even though during this period she (1) posted on her livejournal, (2) read her personal messages on my space, and (3) was seen on MSN Messenger, and even chatted with people. Now the customizer has returned, claiming that she was sick with the flu and strep throat at the same time, and that her grandmother recently died, so that was why she was gone. However, she has offered no reasonable explanation for why she could not have sent a simple email -- "I'm sick, things will be delayed" -- during her month-long absence. Furthermore, she is also claiming that the head has been BROKEN -- but once again, has not posted photos of the supposedly broken head to prove this claim. She has offered a refund of $150, but both my friend and I believe that the missing Akira head is worth much more than that and that this is an attempt to effectively steal the head. We are looking into contacting the police to file a fraud report, but first we need to know the actual value of the Akira head. If you know of the Akira's head value, or even better, if you have proof -- a Yahoo Japan auction, a sale on an LJ site, a friend who recently bought one -- please, please, PLEASE contact me. Please help us nail this scammer, liar and thief! My email is cauldroness(at)gmail.com Any and all information you could give us would be greatly appreciated. We don't want her to scam anyone else, ever!
