fifthofjuly 's Thoughts:

What I threw on to go to the police post to lodge a police report last week. I hate to talk about it, but you see there’s this girl who’s been cheating online shoppers by pretending to take mass wholesale orders. And what happens is you never get the items you order, nor the refunds she keeps promising to give. And it’s been literally weeks/months now, and I hear that some girls have thousands of Singapore dollars with her.

Sadly, I’ve got a fair bit of money with her and I haven’t gotten a single cent back. And the police don’t seem to be hurrying their asses about all the reports against her either.

The lesson: be darn careful whenever you shop online. Don’t buy all at one go if you can’t be sure that the other party can be trusted, and if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

I just hope this mess gets resolved eventually and that she gets what she deserves. Because this isn’t the first time she’s conducted online fraud, and though it was minor the last time, this was massive and obviously planned. Actually, I can’t even fathom how such conscienceless people can exist..

Thank you! Well I just go by the "if it's too good to be true, it's not true" rule now. Just be careful. :)

That's sad..=( I am an ebayer and so far i havent had any bad seller doing monkey bussiness. Maybe because i do stick with sellers i already dealt with before. I'd buy a couple of items with new ones and when they arrive, that's when i know they're okay.=) Hope she gets what she deserves. And you ur money back. But, love the look!!!!

Sticking with sellers you trust is always a good idea.. I'm gonna do that from now on! Though it's sometimes hard to know who's trustworthy and who's not. And thanks! :)

cute outfit! sorry about the incident, i was also a victim of fraud a couple of months ago. i was conned twice by different sellers. i hate how they could do that to us, but i'm just glad it wasn't a huge amount of money they took from me.

Thank you. :) I'm sorry to hear about your bad experience too but I'm really glad yours wasn't a large sum. Fraudulent sellers seriously need to be taught a lesson. :(

Haha, thank you hun. :) Yeah I really hope that something gets done about her. Even if I don't get my money back, I want her charged so it's less likely that she'll cheat others again!

cute skirt!! sorry about the fraud. i've been cheated on online before. and the sad thing is that mostly the police can't really track the person down. good luck to you.
fifthofjuly
fifthofjuly on October 14
Thank you! :) Well.. there are around 100 girls who believe they've been cheated by her and we have her name and address and bank account number.. the police ought to be able to track her. Otherwise I don't know what they're doing..

Thanks! Anyway I think you're pretty safe because she only took orders from Singapore residents for retail outlets like UO, AA, ASOS.. cos what we usually do is order in bulk since shipping small orders to this side of the world costs a bomb.
