I contacted Padme79 (Lin) by pm on 07/31/2010 inquiring about her split/ group order for the Iplehouse Tokyo Story Soo. At the time she wanted only the doll head and I offered to offset the cost as we looked for someone to purchase the body by paying an extra $30 on top of the actual break down for my items. (I am no longer able to locate this split thread, it appears that it has been deleted, I do remember posting on the thread to let her know I sent her a PM - I am unsure if it is against the rules to delete a split thread before a transaction is closed) On 08/09/2010 we agreed to the order, I ordered the following: Soo Kimono and Wig, and additional $30 to help with offset: $208 Shipping to me: $22.50 I sent payment immediately to Lin at this time. On 08/15/2010 Lin contacted me to let me know that the entire order had been paid for and she would update me once she received shipping confirmation from Iplehouse. I did not reply to this pm since it was more of a notification. She had also let me know that she decided to purchase the head and the body since she was unable to find a split partner. On 09/21/2010 I noticed I received an alert from paypal that I had been refunded $230, a few minutes later the following pm arrived from Lin: I responded to Lin immediately quoting the DoA rules regarding flakey feedback for sellers agreeing to sell a doll to a specific person and cancelling. I'm very frustrated with this situation, I feel like I have been used as a loan service so she could buy these doll items without my knowledge. I was given no choice to give up the items that were purchased on my behalf by her, I don't believe the head of a split order has the right to pick and choose what they want to keep? I also feel like she has purchased these items from me at a cost I didn't agree to. The Iplehouse Tokyo Story dolls were limited and from what I have seen very few were purchased, it is unlikely that I will find the items I ordered for sale on the marketplace, or for the price that I was going to pay for them. In more recent pms her suggested resolution is that she contact Iplehouse to see if they will send her an additional limited kimono, at this point Lin will not indicate what she will do if Iplehouse will not provide a duplicate set to her. I have asked her in pm and she did not respond to the question in her following reply. Lin's most recent reply: Lin continues to send me very agressive emails, a few all in caps lock, repeat emails (up to 4 within the hour of the same pm) she has also threatened that she will be giving negative feedback because of my actions. I am willing to provide any and all pms to mods as requested, I have contacted a split partner of Lin's they are committed to split on September 24th and I gave her almost an exact copy of the above, at the time I told her Lin and I were working on it and I would keep her updated, I was unsure if this thread would be up by then and thought it was necessary to give warning so she did not go through the same thing as me. Recommended Solution The best scenario would be Lin accepts the payment back and sends the items as promised - although I am extremely wary to do so after our exchanges, she has become very heated in her responses and I feel sending the money back may put me at risk for being out both the money and the items.
