    Did you pay with a credit card on PayPal. I was wondering if I should submit a claim through my credit card if I get the same response from PayPal that you did.

    Also, does your claim stay open with PayPal incase she uses paypal again, will they take the money from her at that point?

I had a big problem with paypal 2 years ago and they just went into my bank account and took the $$. I had to file a stop payment with my bank so we could resolve the issue before they grabbed the $$. Long story short, I'm pretty sure every person on Paypal has to have either a credit card or bank account associated with their account that they use to cover their paypal charges. It amazes me that they haven't done that yet. Have you talked to an actual person yet or just over the computer? Honestly, Paypal really sucks at resolving issues so I wish you the best of luck.

          Hi, I was stupid and paid with my checking account so I'm out of luck. If you paid with a credit card, you can certainly do a chargeback. Present all the facts from your paypal case (and that you "won") and they will likely give you a refund.

          I believe the claim does stay open in case they ever recover funds from her but I'm not holding my breath.

          I just sent her this email.. I'm so flippin mad:

          "Hi, By now you know that we realize you are a scammer. We know you have scammed 3 people on BDW.
          I have "won" my paypal claim against you but alas, as you are a deadbeat, they cannot recover the $ so I am likely out the money.
          One of the girls you scammed from BDW has filed charges with the police in your town so you will hopefully soon be arrested for internet fraud.
          Was it really worth it? "

            oh well then lulucarmen must just have no money in her account for them to take.... too bad it didn't make her account go negative so she'd have to pay overdraft fees....

              I love your email Finz! I am going to possibly talk with Stamparama if I need some help getting the fraud moving alittle faster. The RCMP here are a little slow, but they assure me everything will come together by the end of the week. WIsh we had better news! :)

                Hey everyone,

                I would just like to say...wow!! I haven't been here in probably..hmm..3 weeks and I just saw this! Since I am no longer planning a destination wedding, I don't come on this site anymore..that's why it has been so long! Anyway, here is my story for those of you who would like to know what is going on.

                Finzup..I sent you an email a few hours ago. I just received yours in my junk folder this evening! - your package was sent around October 15th. I don't have the receipts, but give or take a few days. Unfortunately, I do not have a tracking number and since I lost the receipt, I don't have the customs number that was on it either. I called CP and they said that since it was sent, there was nothing I could do..just wait to see if it arrived. Well, it obviously didn't so I waited a while to see if it showed up while everything with paypal was going on. The claim ended in her favor, and I put the money into my account as soon as she paid, so I didn't have any funds in my paypal account for her to get refunded. I just authorized paypal to send the refund tonight, as my account was limited? I thought that the refund would just end up going through. I didn't think I had to do anything at all. But then I realized that I usually had funds in my paypal account, and checked on it..and sure enough, needed to add some or authorize paypal to take the funds from my chequing/visa account..whichever I am set up for. So anyway! You should have a refund waiting for you in your inbox when you check it next! If you do end up receiving the package you can keep it (of course!) for all the trouble. I don't have much experience at all shipping to the U.S, but seriously? How could I mess it up this bad for it not to arrive..or be extremely late? You'd think that the cashier would have checked them over to be sure that they were correctly filled out at least. Anyway, I hope you do end up receiving them, because I never intended for this to happen at all!

                stamperamma- I sent the tote bags the same time I sent finzup's BM kits, so I also do not have the receipt that shows the customs/tracking number number. How convenient, I know. Anyway, I actually just sent you the refund now, as it was done differently than finzup's. And again, if you do end up receiving your package, I do not expect you to send it back to me. What a pain this has been for you girls, I am very very sorry that it ended up like this. I have sent a ton of packages in my life and, of course, have had a few of them lost in the mail..or whatever, but insurance was generally always purchased so it was usually covered. I never would have expected all of these packages not to arrive. I will call CP tomorrow morning to see if they know anything, or can somehow figure out the tracking information for your package. Here's hoping!

                As for Jenny, I sent you a message earlier, but think I should state here as well that: I used express post for your package, bought the envelope at the post office, filled it out..and dropped it in a mail box at the mall here. It should have arrived 2 business days after I dropped it off, but it has been probably more than three weeks since I dropped it off there, so either it was lost, stolen, very late, or..not picked up yet? I don't know how this could happen, but this is all I can think of. Since you didn't pay with paypal, I am offering to purchase more first aid kits and send them to you (at my expense, of course)..or send you a refund somehow. I don't use cheques, but maybe an email money transfer would work? Please let me know if you do receive the package, as I really am absolutely clueless as to what could have gone wrong here. Again, I will call CP tomorrow morning and ask about this package as well..and how often the mall mail boxes are picked up (I just assumed every day...not every two weeks?) I'll update you all tomorrow as to what I find out.

                Soo sorry again ladies. I sell a lot online and have never had this big of a problem! Also sorry for the very late reply. Again, I am not on here often! I really should have came back to see if jenny received her package, but since it was sent express post, I guess I just assumed that it would get there. Come to think of it, I think all express packages are insured up to $100.00. Hopefully I can find the tracking number here somewhere. I have a huge stack of receipts to dig through on my desk..hopefully it's in there somewhere.

                  After I posted my long message, I went through and read this thread.

                  I never would think of scamming anyone on here, or anywhere. I truly am sorry about what has happened..and have no idea why it ended up this way. Again, going to call CP tomorrow to see if they can look into anything for me.

                  Hopefully by the time some of you are reading this, the two girls have received their refunds. Hopefully jenny gets back to me soon and lets me know what she would like done about her situation.

                  There are a lot of bad people out there, and I have been scammed numerous times online, on ebay especially. I, however, am not one of them! I am wanting to make things right, and hoping they turn out good in the long run. I truly am hoping that along with the refunds, everyone does end up receiving their packages to show that I really wasn't scamming. Oh my..this turned out so bad! It really has made me not want to sell anything online again. Who knows what can go wrong.

                  I admit that I should have been communicating more frequently with the buyers. My life has been extremely crazy lately for a number of reasons...but this is no excuse! Anyway, thought I better add this before bed.

                    I received my refund payment from paypal last night. After the resolution period had ended.

                    As for the item I purchased from Lulucarmen I never received anything and it was shipped in Canada, there is no way it took a month. I purchased my wedding dress from Saskatchewan, it shipped in three days regular parcel post. As far as I am concerned this is over, however just for your information Lulucarmen you have made it difficult for me to trust people. What ever your intentions were the outcome was unforgivable.

                      I have also received a 'pending' refund through paypal. I will post once it officially gets refunded to me.

                      Call me cynical, and I do appreciate her coming back here to set it right, however, I wonder if my letting her know that the police were getting involved had something to do with it. Throughout this, she did not respond to me, or paypal for weeks....
                      She even loses the paypal claim to both me and stamperamma and paypal tries unsuccessfully to recover the money in both cases.

                      I send an email about how the police in her town have been notified and miraculously she reappears and refunds start happening...
