UPDATE: RESOLVED

January 21: The Unoa L-Bi I had traded for arrived today. It was shipped Saturday Jan 18 -- though I have still received no contact whatsoever from RockScientist/Suuchan.

I have not gotten it yet, but my roommate unpacked it and said it's fine.

I can't even say how happy I am that this is over.

I need to thank the BJD community...
I am so grateful for all the help. The tips, advice, information and support was so appreciated, I can't even say thanks enough.


I am considering this trade finished/resolved, though unsatisfactory. I would not ever do business with this person again.

Thank you again *many many many hugs*

______________________________________________________________________________________________

EDIT: I now know that she has been on DOA (She is Suuchan there) Jan 3,  and Den of Demons recently, which is narrowing down the possibility that something happened too her to make her disappear. If she can log on elsewhere she can message me back. If anyone knows her DOD name, I would love to know. -- Dur. I forgot I can log on there myself. She's Suuchan on DOD as well - last logged in Sat Jan 11.

I have reposted this on DOA, Dairyland, my old LJ, the Bad Dolly Deals on LJ, Deviantart and my local yahoo group.

I have pmed her on DOA, and I have emailed her.

Thanks to helpful community members I will be filing a report with the IC3.

I have her facebook page and Aim.

I am not ready to post her full name yet...I'm still hoping she'll do the right thing and send the doll back or at least finish the trade.

If anyone feels like reposting this anywhere, feel free. I would love to have it everywhere it can be. Anymore info about her is also appreciated.

I can't thank you enough. The BJD community has just been so amazing the last few days. I've cried many happy tears *so many hugs* Thank you <3333

______________________________________________________________________________________________

It's been a while since I posted here, mostly because somehow I thought my login was something else and got locked out XD

I'm sorry that this is my first post in a long time, but....I recently had a trade in the BJD community go wrong and I am trying to get it out everywhere I can.


I kept holding out hope that it would come back to me after not being claimed, but no. It was delivered after all....so it looks like it was stolen.

Here's the story:
Dec 29 I made a deal for a trade with a member of the MidWest USA doll forum Dairyland who goes by the name of RockScientist. I would send her my Switch Taeheo head on a Souldoll double body and she would send her Unoa L-Bi. She had good feedback, had done several other trades for dolls (including the doll she was offering to me) and it really looked like there shouldn't be a problem.

I sent the doll off as planned and messaged her to let her know.

Nothing.

I didn't hear from her, I didn't get a doll in the mail, she hasn't even logged back onto Dairyland.

The Switch Taeheo was attempted to be delivered on Saturday, Jan 4, and a notice was left. It sat there until yesterday when it was finally claimed.

I still have no doll in return, and have still heard nothing. I pmed her, but if she's not logging on she's not getting it, and even if she is, if she's stolen my doll she isn't going to care.

The switch head in question has no identifying marks at all, i had given it a faceup but wiped it when I put the doll up for sale. It does have faceup residue in the mouth and eyes, but what head doesn't? It was shipped in the head box with COA and a pair of Dollmore Acrylic eyes in an olive green color. There was a black fur wig I had made for it a long with.....trimmed in the back.
I was storing the broken finger in it's head, if she never removed it, it may still be there, but I seriously doubt it.

The Souldoll body may be a little easier to identify -- it has a broken pinky finger on the right hand, a full body blush by me, mani-pedi, and the symbol for the angel Uriel on it's back (because it was his body first). I shipped the doll unstrung. Souldoll does not sell extra hands, so the finger will either have to be glued on, or left off.

The doll was sent to League City Texas.


I am still holding out the hope that there was an accident or emergency and somehow this will be resolved,

but the more time that passes the less hope I have...
so many trades in this hobby and had nothing go wrong....now this.

Yay 2014 :\

this is the doll I sent, that has been lost/stolen
taeheo3   taeheo7

taeheo3   taeheo4

Like I said, I am still holding out hope that this was somehow a huge misunderstanding, or there was an emergency....so if there is anyone out there in the area who might know anything, I would really appreciate it if you could let me know.

Thank you! Sorry for such a downer post...but the loss of a BJD, especially since I was so excited to get a Unoa in return, has really upset me...

Oh no! I'm so sorry to hear this. I hope you get your doll back. Is it the kind of thing you can file a police report for?

I don't know....I've never filled one out before. I might email the League City police dept and see if I can do anything or if they don't care due to my being here and all. I can fill out an internet crime report though! I will be doing that later....

This so sucks. :(

Hello
I paid Suuchan $225 in full in November for a ringdoll dylan and after being delayed and put off with excuses,offered a small partial refund for the troubles then finally promised a tracking number and doll in the mail right after christmas, I've heard nothing, no tracking number,no doll,no money.
I tried not to assume the worst of her but it seems I made a big mistake in my first attempted doll purchase.
If you hear anything from her or have any advice for me i would greatly appreciate any help.
my e-mail is goldbloodedkiller@gmail.com

I am so sorry to hear this :(
Especially as it was your first doll. May I ask where you were contacting her? Have you tried to get ahold of her on other sites or through email? I'm guessing it's too late for a pp dispute, but if you go here http://www.ic3.gov/default.aspx you can file a complaint and they might be able to help. Especially if more people are doing so against this person, who is obviously a scammer.

I can email you all the info I have, provided by some very helpful people.

Good luck, I really hope she turns up...this is completely unacceptable.

Re: Got him!
:D Oh thank god!! That's wonderful!! Please do let me know condition n'such...but seriously I am so happy!! I am literally sitting here on the nets looking for ways i can legally take action, but maybe MAYBE I won't have too.

Did you see the scammer notice on DOA? She was banned too....I figured you contacted the mods :)

Yay!! I'm so happy for you <33

Re: Got him!
I actually didn't contact the mods, so they must have made that decision on their own. I only got a quick peek because the person he's intended for is home today but he looked okay, hands were bubblewrapped so i still have to check them.
She included an outfit and his eyes which I didn't know I was getting.
The label indicated the package was shipped priority on January 18th. Which means she lied to me when she said she shipped it out directly after Christmas.
When I'm able I'll post some picture of him on DA and DoA c: I'm very excited, even though he's for my roommate I think we'll kind of be sharing him c:
