I really didn't want to have to do this, but Starchaser09 has been given every opportunity to fix the situation and has failed to, latterly compounding my frustration in what should have been a very easily solved issue by insulting me and essentially ignoring me, so I have little choice. I'd like to state now that whilst I don't believe her to be a scammer, it's clear that she has very little experience dealing with problems like this and on the advice of mods, I'm putting this thread up as a warning to her other buyers. On 15th March, I sent Starchaser09 a pm enquiring about some clothing she had for sale in her thread HERE. All was well, we settled on a shipping price including insurance and tracking, communications were friendly and swift. I sent the money over immediately, same day, and this is where things began to go wrong. FOOLISHLY, because she had good feedback, I was an IDIOT, trusted her and sent the payment "personal" at her request. I had never done this before on such a large amount of money ($128), but she seemed entirely trustworthy so I agreed to it without a second thought. Starchaser09 had promised to ship on the Thursday of that week (18th March), but I heard nothing that week, or indeed the next week. Thinking nothing of it since people have busy lives outside of their hobbies, I just thought the box was on it's way and left it at that until 8th April, when, having still not recieved either box or a pm, I sent this to her: All I got in return was the following: Well, so was I now, so I replied immediately: The Easter holidays here came and went, still no box, so once more I sent a pm to her on 11th April, now nearly a full month after I paid her: I got no reply for three days, and then on 15th April, she sent me the following: So apparently, despite my paying for tracking, it would appear I don't have it and Starchaser09 doesn't seem to be even vaguely concerned by this. Awesome. To make matters worse, I can't use paypal to claim back the money because I paid "personal" payment, upon which there are no chargebacks. Not exactly filled with hope for the situation, I figure there's no point getting annoyed with her, what's done is done and there's nothing either of us can do to change it, so I wait and see if the box turns up late after the holidays. By 19th April, over a month since I bought the things, there's still no box, still no contact from Starchaser09, so I pm AGAIN: Despite being online, she ignores the pm entirely. I once more give her the benefit of the doubt, although by this point, I have no idea WHY, and wait until 26th April to pm again: Still no reply for another long stretch before finally I get this on 11 MAY, almost two MONTHS to the day since I paid her: I might actually have believed that had it not been for the fact that the volcano didn't erupt until 21st March, well over a MONTH after my parcel was supposed to be shipped. I send a reply on the same day: Naturally, I get no reply for a week until finally, Starchaser09's crowning glory arrives in my inbox on 17th May: Up until this point, I was actually pretty understanding of all of her massively flakey behaviour, things happen in life, you can't alter them and really, it's not worth getting upset over, but when people openly accuse me of lying to them when I've done nothing but be pleasant over the situation, I no longer care to be understanding. I replied immediately: All I got in reply was the following: This was a week ago. I have heard nothing since and frankly nor do I wish to. Starchaser09 is clearly an entirely trustworthy seller UNTIL SOMETHING GOES WRONG, when apparently it becomes far too much effort for her and she seeks to put off the buyer with idle libel and weeks of zero communication. I am tired of chasing her for my money/items after two months of her incredibly flakey and unbelievable nonsense and I shall be posting a link to this in her feedback thread so that all potential buyers can be made well and truly aware of her lazy selling standards. I sincerely doubt I shall ever see either the $128 OR the box since it's clearly lost, if indeed, it was ever sent at all, and since the only word I have to go on that it was ever shipped is Starchaser09's INTENSELY shakey one, I shall be assuming the worst in her, as she was so charmingly quick to do with me. It seems only fair, and as I stated in the pm, I have now written this transaction off. BUYER BEWARE.
