Hello... (again) here is another from the archives of The Purveyors of Fakes. It shows the kind of people on this forum - sick little people with nothing to do but cause problems for honest folks on eBay.
Lovely64 on TPF exposed as a neurotic liar*.

I am extremely upset and disappointed with Jane from Janefinds. I bought something from her and paid on the 28th. Before I paid I shared my concernes that it may not arrive intime for me leaving on a trip on the 12th of February. She then emailed me back saying that she was shipping it FedEx with signature confirmation so I would have it within 3-4 days.
I then went ahead and paid her. She emailed me back saying "got it, will ship FedEx, you will have it soon". After one or two days I emailed asking for the tracking number so I could arrange for someone to be here and collect it at the door. She gave me a number for PRIORITY MAIL! She didn´t ship FedEx, nor did she ship express!!! She didn´t even ship it on the 28th or 29th like she said but on the 1st of February!
Nedless to say, the package has not entered Sweden yet. I just phoned the Swedish PO and they said that even if it arrives today there is absolutely no chance I will have it by tomorrow. I will be leaving at 4.30 am Friday the 12th.
Sorry about the rant but I am soooooooooo annoyed. I needed it in time for my trip and she was fully aware of that. She promised FedEx or I wouldn´t have bought it!

I have requested a refund but I´m waiting for her reply. The problem is that even if I wanted the item I won´t be here to pick it up and it will automatically be sent back to her! Promising FedEx just to make a sale and then turning around shipping Priority to Sweden is below cheap! I didn´t even get an opportunity to call off the sale or have a say in the matter. She just went ahead and shipped using the cheapest way. The purchase wasn´t mega expencive but $1500 isn´t exactly lose change either! Such a shame, I´m irritaded beyond words.
I am glad you didn´t end up buying from her christymarie, and thanks for your kind words. I won´t buy form her again either! Customer service is vital to a business. Even I stretch whatever means possible to make my buyers happy when I´m selling on ebay, and I´m not a business.

Firstly, when an international buyer is advised that the safest way to ship from the USA and ensure on time delivery is by using FedEx (the only service I use), and then refuses to pay $89 because it's "too expensive and FedEx always hits me with customs", then it's quite ironic to blame the seller on a public forum. Secondly, you did not purchase an Hermes Bag, you purchased a Roberto Cavalli jacket. In fact you didn't even want to pay for shipping at all and I ended having supplement your shipping cost! I've been doing this for a long time, in shipping like anything else you get what you pay for.
Lastly, it's appalling that you are posting a flat out lie that I shipped the cheapest way possible, when I simply did what you asked. If you changed your mind, that's one thing, but please don't use this forum as a way to create false sympathy from users that only hear one side of the story. To ad insult to injury you immediately contact PayPal and I get a charge back. I don't have the coat and I don't have the money. Well done.
I have many longstanding international clients, all extremely satisfied with my product and my communication.
*It should be noted that Lovely64 is not the only neurotic liar who posts on the Purse Forum. Other members whom have been called out for lying include: flossyfigaro, gigi123, gracekelly, 24 faubourg, lovehermes, etc etc. The list is endless and best left for another post.
