SCAMMER ALERT !!DANSE _NOIR!!




User danse_noir  has 5 confirmed items that have not reached buyers, and she has made another sales post today!
http://community.livejournal.com/egl_comm_sales/4986637.html?view=81051917#t81051917 
On December 8th, I paid 105 Euros for this item, made by user
danse_noir .  (I think that's her in the picture.  Go ahead and get out the pitchforks if it's not allowed.)
This is the original post http://community.livejournal.com/egl_comm_sales/4528011.html


I paid for the dress on December 8th.  
I did not hear any response from the seller with regards to shipping, received payment, etc.
I sent an email to her paypal email on Dec 21st.  No response.
Her Lj doesn't accept PMs.

I  made this post on Dec 25th http://community.livejournal.com/egl_comm_sales/4702680.html

So I waited. 

I filed a paypal claim on January 2nd.  This was after I saw a post by another user looking for the same seller. 

January 5th (It starts to get ugly...)She also deleted all these comments from her Lj.


Me:I will not escalate the dispute to a claim until January 22nd, which should be plenty of time for the item to arrive. I will let you know if I receive it, and promptly cancel the dispute.

I bought the fruits parlor dress, and I live in California.

I would like this to end amicably. 

Their reply was:  thanks a lot for understanding me. not every girl here is as polite as you are. I've only been some days on holiday in an littel vally in Austria without internet or telephone and now ,comming back is like coming back to hell. paypal allready took all the money from me which is all together 270€ and everything is shipped out ,that really feels like hell. nothing left and the money is gone too. I'm only a student and not able to loose so much money.
thanks for your grasp and not escalating it imediately!
I hope your dress arrives soon but anyway I asked the post to search where your package is at the moment

Also Jan 5th:

Me: Same as above^ Concerned about losing 100 Euros on an item I haven't received.

Their reply was:  went to the post tosay again, well I've got lot better things to do but you're thinking of making big trouble,
the post officer told me a bit annoied because I'm there every other day, that every package takes 3-4 weeks to get from germany to america and in christmas/new year time it can be 5-6 weeks . so you can have your package by now or the next week its not possible ,but not my fault its the fault of the post they are just to slow. but they will tell me when you get your package. And if paypal gives you the money and you recieved the dress I will go to the police and press charges against you because of beguilement.


She also claims she doesn't have a tracking number but the postofficer can track every package leaving Germany, and she says mine arrived in the US 2 weeks ago.  


She still hasn't told me the exact date she shipped, or what method.  She just tells me to keep waiting.  I  think 6 weeks is long enough, especially with several other girls missing items from her as well.

I'm calling scammer.  Stand up and explain!  

6 packages don't all just "go missing."
 

There are 5 other girls missing items from danse_noir  (making 6 total that have been found)
(Lj names posted with permission)

Lj name: gaslighthorror 
Item:  Montreal Shoes
Price:  51 USD
Date: Dec 8, 2008
I bought a pair of Montreal Shoes from her on December 8th. She implied, as she did with everyone, that it's my fault it never arrived because I did not request tracking or insurance, neither of which was offered by her in the first place. I find it strange that not one, two, but five packages were lost and that she is running a new sales post with all of these problems outstanding. ALSO -- she has never (NOT ONCE) contacted me to see if the shoes arrived.

Lj name: ant_forster 
Item: Baby Heart Replica Bag
Price: 35 euros
Date: Nov 22nd, 2008.
After Christmas, I contacted her and she responded saying she had been away, and the bag got lost in the post, so she's make another and send it free of charge. This is yet to arrive (if her story is true, and shipping does take 3-4 weeks like she says, it should be here mid-Feb or so). Also, I just noticed she deleted my feedback on her journal (which is the only place I remember leaving a link to the sales post I bought from, so it might prove a problem to prove I bought it now)....

Lj name: [info]loliakanechan 
Item: Sweet Candy JSK  http://community.livejournal.com/egl_comm_sales/4413471.html#cutid1
Price: 100 Euros
Date:  Dec 16th, 2008
I put a deposit of 20€ down on 11/28/2008 and paid the rest in total of 80€ on 12/16/2008. I did not receive any form of shipment notification except for her telling me about 2 weeks later that it had been shipped out on 12/20/2008. She claims it takes 3-4 weeks for shipping from Germany to America.

Lj name: xaynie 
Item: White heart bag http://community.livejournal.com/egl_comm_sales/4358335.html
Date paid: 11-22-08
Price: 35 Euro
It was 5 weeks since I paid so I tried contacting her via the sales post but no reply. I escalated it to PayPal to protect myself. After much probing, she said the item was shipped on December 17, 2008 (almost a whole month after I paid). What kind of seller waits almost a month to ship something out and not let the buyer know? On top of that, she said it would take 3 - 4 weeks to ship from Germany and 4 - 5 during the holidays. It's been almost 2 months and I still no sign of the bag.


Lj name (anon):
I did a trade with her, sent over a skirt and was supposed to get a dress. I have proof of receipts and all. However, she claims she never got the skirt, and she never sent the dress...in fact, claims that it got lost twice, and then suddenly it was 'found by the mail and sent back to her'. Thus, it is the dress she is now selling, by Sweet_like_you.

Lj name:lolibunny 
Item: fruits parlor replica JSK
Price: 105 Euros
Date: Dec 8th 2008
Paid, no response to when or how it was shipped. She has only posted one message in the paypal dispute.

As a side note, I accept full resposiblity for the accuracy and content of this post, as well as the angry PMs I may receive.  I would like to have it known that I am I real live 25 year old adult with a college degree, and I know exactly what I am doing.  In other words, don't harass the other users in this post because of me.
