            Just read this whole thread- must say I'm sorry that this all happened to you girls! I would be TICKED. Just wanted to throw in a quick point- I work for a large bank. ALWAYS pay for things online with paypal or debit card/credit card. Theres is a Govt Regulation called "reg E" It protects consumers from any kinda of electronic fraud. Double posts on your checking acct, wrong amt, ANYTHING ELECTRONIC! Also PLEASE be careful of Western Union/MoneyGram services. These services are often used by scammers, because you can't get your funds back.

            I shop online a lot, so just keep your eyes open and be careful of anything suspicious!

              oh dear...it is sad to hear of this type of thing happening here. Thank you for the warning. I strongly believe in karma and it will catch up with her one way or another.

                We both purchased items from Lulucarmen back on Oct 3, 2009. I purchased the first aid kits, and the other bride purchased the bridesmaid kits. Both of us made arrangements for payment. We bot paid Lulucarmen promptly.

                After a couple of weeks, we both emailed Lulucarmen separtely to find out the ETA on the packages, along with tracking numbers, etc as we never rec'd any sort of response from her about receiving payment, nor about the packages being mailed. We never rec'd a response from those emails. The other BDW bride opened a claim with paypal and I spoke with my bank and the cheque had been cashed. Once the claim was made with paypal, Lulucarmen contacted the other BDW bride and said she mailed the package, and would get back to her as she didnt have a tracking number, but that was only after the claim was made. Since then, we both have again emailed her numerous times, and not response whatsoever. The other bride has upgraded her claim to see what paypal can do to help her.

                I have spoken via PM with Tammy (host) and unfortunately there is nothing they can really do as they try not to get involved in these sort of issues. So my only recourse at this time is to warn ALL of you to stay away from Lulucarmen. Please do not let this happen to you.

                I gave her the benefit of the doubt early on in this whole purchase debacle, thinking maybe she was sick or something had happened to someone in her family (bc this is flu season), but once I had heard that she has also been avoiding another bride on here and she is having the same problems as me, well I now no longer am giving her that sympathy. I want my items that I paid for. Its so hard in this world to trust people now adays, never would have thought in a forum such as this, where we are all in the same boat...planning and meeting some great people, that we have to deal with that on here too. That someone would take adavantage of a fellow BDW bride / groom.

                So please take note, I cant say this enough, please do not put yourself in the same situation as we are in right now. And always pay through paypal, bc atleast that way you have sort of recourse and gettingyour money back. Me on the other hand, am out of luck I think. I will be checking into this further by my bank to see what if anything I can do.

                I by no means wanted to do this, but she has left me no other choice and I did check with Tammy (host) ahead of time to make sure I wasnt crossing any lines by doing this. Im sure the other bride this involves will post on this thread to make you also aware of her situation so that no one thinks this is a bogus thread or that we didnt give her the time or benefit of the doubt to make this right.

                Wow, I'm so sorry that this happened to you! That is really horrible. This is such a great forum and so helpful, it really stinks when someone comes in like this and has to ruin it. I have faith that the people who run this site will take action. They know how to run things successfully!

                    Brides, I read in some article (about bridal shops that scam you) that you should always use your credit card. Because if your dress comes in late, or not what was described, you can reverse the charges through a certain title (can't remember the title # for the life of me) for credit card purchases. I'm sure it works for this kind of thing too. I'll try to find it again and post. I'm just sorry I'm too late for you two :-(

                      Thanks ladies...I have bought from other brides on here since then and haven't had a problem, so dont be afriad to purchase from people on here. I would just make sure you look at their status and possibly stay away from someone who still has "noob" status. Now that doesnt mean it cant happen from anyone else...but atleast you know they are somewhat of a veteran on here.
                      It was an unfortunate experience for all of the ladies involved in this, however we have learned from it and in the end, hopefully put the word out there to be cautious and ask all the right questions prior to purchasing.

                      Thanks again for all your support throughout all of this and your words of wisdom. Im sure many brides will learn from our mistakes!
