It would be nice to give her a taste of her own medicine, but would you really want to become a scammer yourself? Tempting I know, just to stick it to her but I think it would backfire in the end. In the years since she ripped everyone off I think that Paypal seller protection has changed as someone did this exact same thing to me over a pair of jeans I sold (Miss Me brand so not cheap). The day after the delivery confirmation showed that they had arrived she whipped out a chargeback on her credit card. BUT since I did have delivery confirmation and proof that it was sent and delivered they did award me the money and went after her through the credit card company instead for mail fraud.

Wow, great story! When did this jean scam happen?

Ah, crud. I just bid on an auction that this seller has and then I found this thread... I hope someone outbids me... there's 4 hours left... is there a way to retract bids after you have won?

Edit:
Now I remember why I stopped buying on ebay 9 years ago! Ugh. At least I figured out how to retract a bid. Now I need to figure out how to close my ebay account completely...

Of *course* she has a pony I'm interested in. Given all I'm hearing about her ponies, that kinda surprises me.

From her listings, she's selling all her ponies. O_o Maybe she's washing her hands of them? *head tilt*

Edit: Aw, look - ebay wants buyers' opinions on how to make ebay a better place... Whoa

Edit 2: Pft. That was kinda pointless. Not much to that little survey of theirs, is there? awake

Ebay has survey's on how to make it a better place?
If there's an actual contact/forum or something where we could all leave feedback reguarding certain sellers (that would get read by someone with ebay that actually cares) I'd be more than happy to give my 2 cents if it means this seller is unable to rip-off any more collectors!

Wow! I almost bid on a couple of these auctions as well, but was nervous over the lack of feedback and that they just seemed a little odd to me....
Did anyone here bid on these ponies? Like the 2 Mimics or that lot that went for over $400.00? I am just curious to know if the buyer has actually received them?
Thanks for the warning-this is something I really value about the Arena!!

Just for the record, I wouldn't ever consider it. I was just thinking that, if I were her, I would expect someone to do the same thing to me to get back their stolen ponies. She's only shipping to the USA though, and I know that makes a difference. It must feel like a punch in the gut to have your pony stolen, and then have it show up for sale on ebay. Whoa

So I was looking for Merry Treat on eBay, not really to buy necessarily, just to judge how much she usually goes for. I scroll down and see her paired up with the stocking baby for only $10. I knew it had to be too good to be true.

In the picture, they look fine except Merry's hair was a little frizzy but the description simply said "like new." That's when I noticed that the seller was scottishdeerhound1234 and I remembered this thread and clicked the little red x in the corner.

Just wanted to say thanks. This thread might have just saved me ten bucks.

this does not surprise me. I knew there was no way she could have changed just like that.

If you stick a hat on her and photoshop a wart on her nose she looks like that nasty witch in the MLP cartoon. How cute. Actually, photoshopping is probably unnecessary Smile
