The sting of being scammed.

This is the bag I should be taking to India. It meets all of my criteria, and is not displeasing to the eye. Emphasis on the should, because this little beauty never turned up.
I won’t bore you with the story*, suffice to say I waited 8 weeks, made contact several times, and never heard a peep from the seller. Oh wait, that is the story.
The reason I am posting this at all, aside from being a great way to vent, is that I don’t want anyone else to buy something from this loser, and  experience the pain of waiting for a purchase that will never arrive.

Oh yeh, and the weirdest part?! It seems 4 more people were scammed after me, and but several more people still were shipped their items successfully!  Why would someone go from scamming, to honest, in the space of a couple of weeks? Take a look –

So the moral of the story? Some people are jerks.

* I have contacted Etsy, convo’d the seller, emailed the seller through Paypal, and still not a single reply. Also, his details on Paypal don’t check out – bogus website and email address. OUCH! The sting of being scammed still hurts.
