    What would you do if you sold something to another cheffer and to date has not paid and refuses to answer anymore e-mails regarding the non-payment?
    The cheffer is a prominent poster; in fact I just sent her 2 private messages and she's online right now. BTW, no response on the PM's!

    Wow, that's a tough one. First, I'm sorry you had this experience. Most cheffers are very reliable (I've sold a few items and haven't had any problems). I can't believe a cheffer would knowingly not pay for an item received (I'm assuming she has the merchandise?).

    I would say that if she's online now, she'll see this thread and will respond to you immediately. If not, I hate to say this, but maybe NAME HER. That will get her attention!

    Good luck, and I hope you get this resolved!

    Yes Yes

    Please Please let others know!! It gives the rest of us a bad name when people are not honest. I placed an order with somebody on here a long time ago and never received my stuff.

    I tried again and ordered through Ginger and received my things, I was so happy!!! I sure do hope you receive payment. It was nice of you to go out of your way for somebody.

    I would give them one last chance to answer your messages before you say anything to damage their reputation on here. It could possibly be that they're having an e-mail problem and aren't receiving your e-mails. If you just sent the PM's tonight, they may not have refreshed their screen to see them yet. I don't know, i guess i like to give people the benefit of the doubt. But if they still don't respond soon, I'm not sure what I'd do. That's a pretty sticky situation... Sorry I couldn't be of much help.

    Yes, you could give them the benefit of the doubt, but I am sure after they see this thread they will respond back to you! I agree that most people on this site are honest, but there have been times where I sit and wonder about some others......

    Thanks for your responses. Yes she does have the pink quick stir pitcher in her possesion. I've corresponded with her in PM's since January and have not had an issue with those emails but she has yet to answer the last one 2-23 and these 2 new PM's today.
    I will give her til tomorrow to respond.

    Hmmmm Funny how as soon as I posted she went off or invisible!

    There is a cheffer that has scammed eveyone ( 30 anyway). If you think you might have been scammed call Pampered Chef, they will confirm it and help you. The legal deparment is looking into it. She has definately lied and more$$$

    I notified the moderator when I saw what was happening. The post was not taken down. I made a suggestion that could have helped her get out of trouble, but was slammed. Now I feel guilty for not calling her out.

    I think I know EXACTLY what you are talking about. I noticed it too and I actually agreed with your idea (of course, I never shared that and I should have because everyone seemed to disagree with your thoughts) I am going to look back and see if I know what I am talking about!

    It is scary how some people are evil. They make "friends" but when questioned they don't answer because another statement will be put in that the reader forgets the statement.

    Makes you realise how nasty people can be.

    Let HO know. They will deal with it.

    Hi Laurel!
    I think the red names are "Gold Supporters", meaning they paid extra for their membership.

    Now you've all got me intrigued as to what is going on around here!...and afraid to sell anything for fear of being duped!

    Fyi

    Without going into detail, I explained my situation, and yes feel absolutly horrible about the circumstance I have put her (pamperdawn) in. I did respond to her pm and apologized for the absent mindedness on my part. I really truly am sorry. I had responded asking for an address in which to mail payment now that my ordeal was cleared up. This afternoon, I finaly just paid by paypal instead of sending a check. It cleared my account and I have the confirmation email from paypal saying so. I have sent this to her also.

    I take responsibility in this. I should have taken care of this sooner, but I did take care of this and the last think I want to do is leave a bad taste in someones mouth. I really hope that she sees that in no way was I trying to screw her out of product or money.

    If anyone else feels the need to start a smear campain, feel free. Nothing is going to stop you.

    Smear campaign it is NOT! I just wanted my money and wanted it since Jan 13th. Unfortunately this is the only way I actually got my money. How come you didn't respond to my last email over a week ago or my private messages just this evening.

    Like I said, I like to give people the benefit of the doubt. Everyone is absent minded at times, and besides, from what I've read you've had a lot going on over the last few months Darby. Hopefully now that it's all cleared up she will see it the same way. Mistakes happen!

    I have responded. I PM you everytime I see you online. I have PM'd others also with no response either, so I dont know. I had asked for an address, explaining that my situation was as cleared up as it was going to get and apologized for such the delay. Never heard a thing, so this afternoon, I saw that you were on here and shot over the payment by paypal. Glad to know that you finally received it, but still feel just terrible for you being in limbo dealing with all my issues. Ugh...sorry again, really.

    Darby,

    I've been there, too. I was in an emotional funk for about 4 months and didn't really know it...just think of 4 months with no cycle and NOT pregnant and you'll understand...

    Anyhoo, I sold an 8qt bowl to SarahMarie for a Christmas present. I think she paid for it at the end of October and I didn't get it out to her until December. The horrible part is that the label I used got torn off. Luckily I used a box that had previously been shipped to me with something else in it, so it was sent back to me. The post office was gracious enough to resend it without charging me again, but because of me taking so long to send it originally and because it was sent back, it did not get to her on time for Christmas. She ended up getting something else in it's place. I felt so bad!!!!

    I sent it because she sent payment via Pay Pal, so I sent her the product. Three days later, the payment was reversed (not sure why; that was on her end.) I have PM'ed her my address on Feb 1 (I still have it in my sent box), and inquired many times after, with NO response at all, until my thread tonight.

    I am done with this thread; I have my money, I'm happy (well, sort of; still not a good experience). I'm just sad that it had to come to this.

    Thank you all for your responses and support!!

    I want to make this clear that in no way is this pamperdawns fault. I had a horrible expierence with my finacial institution back in CA where I came from (online acct hacked, thousands of dollars gone, bad credit EVERYWHERE, holds on ALL my accts until this thing was cleared, still not toaly cleared...ugh...). She sent it to me in total trust and I flaked (unknowing ly and then just made it worse by being even more flaky...ugh, again) And yes, I knw ALL about the emitional rollercoaster. I am IN IT. Thrust into menopause at 34 after total hysterectomy, just found out that I have cushings syndrome and may have a thyroid issue...ah the joys of womanhood. Not making any excuses for it, it just SUCKS!! And again I apologize (I think I will be doing this for quite sometime...):eek:

    Dawn,

    I'm glad it worked out. I do know Darby pretty well and she did have a really difficult month. Not that that is an excuse, but it is totally out of character for this to happen. I hope you don't hold it against her as well as anyone who might read this post.

    Was it? Thats not what I heard. Anyone can call Pampered Chef and find out the truth. Have you called them yet? Please quit making others feel bad for questioning you. In fact no one had mentioned your name.

    Unfortunately, they have to wait until Monday.

    PEOPLE CALL!!!!!!!!!!

    I'm a little confused by the attacks against Darby. I've read the post your referring to, and I don't see the big deal. She never asked for money, people offered it to her because they wanted to help her out. After her ordeal was resolved, it seemed that the majority did not want their money returned, and were fine with her idea of donating it, as she did. The only one that said otherwise was you. If you wanted the money you donated back, that's a matter for you to discuss with Darby. I don't see the need for all of the attacks against her. As for this situation, people are human, they make mistakes. She apologized and it has been resolved. Let it go.

    I think that there may be more to this than we all know (I don't know ANYTHING about the other DS party). I have to admit, I just went back over the "Holy..." thread and things don't add up quite right to me either, from either that thread or this one (I was one who donated money and didn't ask for it back - I'm happy it went to a shelter). I've never had a Fed Ex guy leave me a note saying this is where he left my packages as we agreed to (and why was the note sitting there all by itself - wouldn't it have been attached to a box?). But I don't know, maybe my Fed Ex guy is a slacker (whole 'nother thread).

    For this thread, it sounds like pamperdawn had her facts straight; she just wanted her money and she's being made out to be the bad person here. As Elaine said, no one named names. She was looking for help on what to do, and I don't blame her. I would have done the same thing to get the person to react.

    Things do happen, people get absent-minded, stressed, etc., and I do hope that's all this was...

    If you're referring to my posts, I certainly wasn't meaning to make pampereddawn out to be the bad guy. I understand that she was just trying to get the situation resolved. She never named names or made attacks against anybody. Others did. I just hate to see people attacked unfairly, and I'm not seeing where it is all coming from, that's all.

    I think I read somewhere that some Cheffers have two screen names... Please look at this carefully. Especially when you look at the responses between this thread and Holy Sh**

    All You need to do is call HO for the facts.

    The other DS party thread was removed by Greg, so I probably sound like a fool bringing it up, it just really irked me. Just trying to squeal more money out of us all.

    The real issue is the Holy S*** thread. And what has happened to pamperdawn.

    Okay, clearly this is getting misinterpreted. I'm going to follow pampereddawn's idea and be done with this thread. I don't want to start any fights here on CS, and I certainly don't want to offend anyone unecessarily. I do not know Darby, but she has contributed great advice to many threads and I feel that I have benefited from her being here. I stuck up for her for that reason. None of us know what really happened, it's all speculation, and I feel that it's not getting us anywhere, so I'm done.

    NOW THAT"S WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT!!

    Everyone look at the thread Holy Sh** If you sent money in then Call HO because there is such a thing as mail fraud. I'm not sure about the pal pay but those that snail mailed call PC. Print out your check stub from the internet and get the signature!
