I have a parcel to collect from my sorting office that I need to arrange for redelivery. it looks to be a mexican tracking number so I think they might have arrived. but I won't know for definite till saturday.

But to be fair if it is them then the time elapsed from payment to arrival is perfectly acceptable for international shipping so fingers crossed I will carry on not having problems.

I received my pony today but I have a post in the Nirvana section to whether she was a re-hair or not because of her tail. I was told by some people that she was, but then I got new information on her from Skeen. Apparently she had tail rust and the gal cut her tail hair off to remove it. So she is legit afterall, her hair feels right but her tail is in bad shape. Skeen is making a post about it. I am so confused! :huh:

Yeah, that's my Posey.  I know after my seller posted those pics she flat-ironed the hair. 

Here's what happened:

Several years ago a member named COTTONMEDLEY offered up a very rare Lilac Haired Posey for sale, and I bought her.  At the time CM was a respected member, so when she requested I send money, in installments, via WesternUnion, I agreed though I didn't like it.

As soon as she got the last payment, she disappeared.  All attempts at communication went ignored.  And while she was ignoring me, she was busy scamming other members (who I will not name because I don't know if they're still here or not) via Facebook.  The last I heard about her was last year, and she even had the gall to reach out to another member here to ask for the addresses of people she scammed so she could send out what she owed and make it right, but she never sent anything that time either.

Then, SockThief just happens to have this pony that she says she got in a lot from a seller in Mexico, and as you can see, this is the exact same pony I pain for, in full, in 2011.  In digging, the name on SockThief's PP account is a Facebook friend of the seller I was initially scammed by. 

I am gutted.  Purely, utterly gutted.  In all my years as a member, I have NEVER been scammed before.  And to be scammed out of such a special pony makes it even worse.  But that is my pony, no doubt, and since I do not get to have her SockThief owes me a lot of money, and a refund to angel for not describing her condition correctly.

Sockthief seems to have completely disappeared I see.

Still no ponies for me. The tracking still says "origin post is preparing shipment". Seems she just gave me a random tracking # and never actually sent the ponies or something. My package was supposedly mailed on the 30th of September. Even with very slow service, it should still say something other than "Origin post is preparing shipment" by now.

I sincerely hope this scammer gets banned.

Oh my god I dodged a bullet here when she never responded to me. Mlplover you bought factory error firefly right? Sorry I have a very fuzzy head today and forgot if it's you that bought it. I wanted her, but missed out. Did you see photos that proved it had no tail hole?? I never saw any photos that showed I was just going to trust her.

I'm so sorry everyone.  :hug:

There was a pic that showed no tail hole...I think. I can't remember, honestly. But at this point I don't even think I'll be getting my ponies at all. If I do, it wouldn't surprise me if it shows up with a tail hole or something.

I'm so pissed right now, I want my *slight edit for language*ponies! :cry: I'm gonna cry.

Btw, the PayPal address she gave and where I paid, had a male name. Was it like this with everyone else? I'm just wondering... ugh I hate that my english is so poor and I can't really explain these things, but when I tried to open a dispute in PayPal, I received this message:

"We're sorry, but this transaction cannot be disputed because it is not a purchase of goods or services. Please contact the recipient directly."

Is it because I sent the money as a "gift" to the seller? Does this mean I can't have my money back? :/

Oh, ruhje unfortunately paying by gift means you can't put in a dispute.  Did Sock thief ask you to pay by gift?  I'm so sorry. :hug: By the way your English seems fine to me.

No, she didn't... :cry: I'm just new to this/here (this is my second time buying from Arena), and I just wanted to be kind and pay the fees, that's why I chose the gift option+ I trusted her. How incredibly stupid I was...

Ruhje: I think your english is good, but if you feel like you cannot say something, i can try to help you to say it in english. :)

When you pay via paypal, it is quite normal that the seller pays the fees, so you have the protection, if something goes wrong. Also, if she has shipped the ponies late, like happened with someone else, it might take some time to come to Finland. Im keeping my fingers crossed.


Im sorry that all this is happening to you guys and i hope you get your ponies.
Skeen, im so sorry to read about this. I wish there would be a happy ending, this is such a big mess.  :hug:
