I have been in the doll business for 12 years. I've seen alot of crazy stuff but this one takes the cake. I saw the initial post on Facebook. No way am I wasting a day reading through all this nonsense there is some important data missing:

1. Did the transaction happen though Ebay? If so, please ebay user names of both parties
2. If the transaction did not occur through Ebay where did it occur?
3. Post a photo of the actual box the doll was shipped in. Take a pic of the shipping label showing weight.

Then perhaps we can get more info since you both introduced this issue to us here on Dollfan, help us.. give is more information please. :D

Remember the one with the carpet remnants and the one with the missing Zadia? :shock: :shock: :shock: I've realized the word "crazy" is such a mild term in reference to the dolly world and community. :wink:

Such a devastating, horrific scam to pull. The majority, if not all of the people commenting on facebook appear to be in support of the seller with growing evidence against the buyer. The facebook thread in the scammer's group is very interesting and attracting lots of attention from reborners and collectors around the world.

All this info is posted on the Facebook scammer page. It was a private sale done outside of eBay. The box was shown. There was a whole video posted. The label did show the correct weight and charge for that weight. Tracking was also posted and nothing strange happened and the box wasnt sitting anywhere for extended periods of time. Here is the group link. https://www.facebook.com/groups/1156834947669217/I can not share the video as its not on youtube like all the other buyers videos. For some reason the buyer didn't post it there and my guess is she recorded it and sent it to the seller. The seller is who posted the box opening video. The box is clearly missing the customs envelope with all the shipping paperwork in it. The tape on the box also looks damaged. Buyer claims she didn't move the box at all as her son picked up the box and put it on her changing table. I have asked Kathy to post the video to youtube or here.

Thanks Denise. I did see that on facebook but did not read through the entire thread. I wonder if smurfgirl would post the pic of the box she has that she did not send the doll back with? That would be nice of her to post the actual box picture. I mean nothing to hide right? Let's see the box top and bottom? I noticed the customs slip was missing. Hmmmmmmm this is disturbing to me. I know all of us are upset over it because it affects all of us ultimately. :( I am so sorry to hear this happened it really breaks my heart.

I wouldn't want that kind of KARMA following me around. Heck no! That's some serious bad juju. If you can sleep soundly at night knowing you took serious advantage of someone like this, then you would have to be a truly evil person.

I just watched the box opening again 4 times!hooked up my computer to large screen tv to get really close to see.
In the beginning of the video you can clearly see the priority tape has been cut an retaped as it is not completely alinged especially the right hand side ( on screen)
And when she is opening the box she holds down the cardboard so it won't flex and show it has be previously cut by her.
Could you send the video to PayPal? As well as her previous bull with kelligirl? Especially now that she is trying to sell the doll with NO reference to " damage"?
To me that shows she is a the*f

Hopefully PayPal is reconsidering?
The box has been clearly opened and retaped as well as her bull crap she pulled before over " defects and original s" ( gag)

Seems strange that the buyer who claims the doll was missing from the box and replaced with a cheap vinyl doll is missing lately. Has anyone seen or heard from her? Her youtube account is there but she has removed EVERY video she posted and its just an empty account. WOW :shock:
