I sold Ling, my CH Unique Prayer Choa to "Kocomo" on DOA and shipped her off. The day she gets her i get this email: "Hello Choa arrived today... She has issues you didn't tell me about. I have enclosed pictures.. Her face has 3 or 4 markings, her eyelashes are smushed, and her neck is all scratched I beleive from the s-nook during traveling as the s-hook was pointed down into her neck.. I usually bubble wrap the neck seperately from the s-nook and make sure this wouldn't happen.." I emailed her back asking if she knew how it happened since she was VERY well wrapped and if she tried removing the marks on her face with Magic Eraser (they simply couldn't have been gauges). This was her reply: "Jola, With these issues she is not worth the $800 plus shipping that I paid for her... I would rather send her back then to deal with issues" I told her I didn't have that much to refund (I have all of $17 in my paypal account right now!) but that i'd like to work something out to fix the damage or do a parial refund etc etc, again asking if she could try Magic Eraser to makes sure it was actual damage ... she wrote: "Why did you ask so much for her when you knew her eyelashes where smushed and never said a word.. plus the markings on her face had to be since you owned her.. the neck I do believe came from the s-hook, however that is faulty packaging. We all have bills.. I am unemploied due to serious health issues..." huh? her eyelashes weren't smushed, they curl up. and that was in my photos and the CH photos ... I had photos taken of her the day before shipment actually showing that side of her face and there were no markings ... " believe you.. but it doesn't change the matter of her issues none.. I will be kind however. I believe in what goes around comes around. So I will just relisted her on DOA, showing the issues she has and state that I just purchased her from you for $800 and I will ask $600 for her. Yes, I am loosing $200, but I don't think it is the first time, but it will be the last time! I do have one request, please may I also borrow your photo images for the posting of her?" I emailed back and offered to at least send her the default eyes, outfit and wig so she could make her money back on the supposedly "damaged" doll .. "I have listed her on DOA, please see and be sure it meets with your approval.. I am saying best offers over $695 including her outfit. I am taking offers until Saturday. So hopefully you will be able to get the outfit, wig, eyes ect.. to me by Monday. So I could ship her out by Monday with hopefully an offer for her! Wish me luck and thank you for the outfit!! I deeply appreciate that!!" So i sent her the stuff and she asked if i shipped, i sent her the tracking number ... and today i see this thread: a thread on DOA auctioning her off. photos show NO DAMAGE, no damage is noted in the listing. the photos of Choa clothed are the CH photos, but the nude photos are HER photos. Taken after she got her. showing no damage. I emailed her confronting her about this: "Me?? I was and am too chicken... My daughter, whom does Reborn baby dolls. She lightly sanded and buffed the neck. The face is not scratched, I said it was a make-up smudge. Anyhow she cleaned the face to where there is just one smudge mark, that is pale on the cheek, she is still working on that for me, but it doesn't show in the picture now, but I will tell any potential buyer she has been repaired. I am having to take a hugh loss because of these issues.. so whether or not she gets fully repaired she is in fact a repaired doll.. there-for I still take a loss. She will be great for someone whom wants to repaint her." THEN, after she got no offers, and probably after seeing that i have a Volks Cyndy in my signature she sent me this: ""I have no offers for her at all...! I realize you do not have the funds to refund me, but perhaps a trade? Do you have any other dolls we could possible trade for? Do you have an older Volks doll we could trade... You might be able to fix her for a resale. I am afraid to try magic eraser on her face as I would not want to disturb her face-up. What ever just remember I paid $800 plus shipping so it has to be a fair trade.." I refused of course since we had already agreed that the dress, wig and eyes would make up for the "damage". TODAY: she filed a paypal claim against me and put up this ebay auction (note please nude shots are hers): http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&Item=280149133987&Category=84635 ______________________________________________ Edit: Kocomo has withdrawn her paypal claim against me. i'm willing to put this all behind me and consider this resolved. I wish her luck in selling her doll.
