- Wedding: October 2012
Quick RANT ladies…I posted on Wedding bee’s classified ‘wanted’ section looking for someone selling a Maggie Sottero Fiorella. I received a message from a fellow Bee selling her dress. She said she had purchased a Fiorella from a church auction (a sample with tags in perfect condition) but she had since found and purchased another dress she liked better. She said she would sell it to me for $500 including shipping. We emailed back and forth for a few days regarding condition, paying with paypal, ect. She said she just needed to wait a couple days (until friday)because the 2nd dress she purchased had not arrived yet and she just wanted to make sure she wasn’t getting scammed. I was ok with this, I understood. During these emails she made it very clear that she was not a scammer…she had a good bank job, she was a paypal member, ect.
So Friday comes and goes wtihout hearing from her…so I email her Sat…I get an email back that says:
“My apologies, I actually got “dress #2” and it’s an extremely tough call, but I’m going to keep the Fiorella for now.
I am SOooo sorry for jumping the gun and throwing that out there on WeddingBee, but I’m not in the business of buying/selling wedding dresses and I just got overly excited at the prospect of being able to unload one quickly.
Were you ever able to try on the Alabaster (and did you like it)? When is your wedding date? Mine is still a year away so, if I do decide to go with the other dress, I would certainly let you know.
Ok…again, I understood and emailed her back saying such. UNTIL TODAY…while searching for Fiorella on Ebay….Well, there she is selling the dress for $750. I know it is her becasue she listed the same story (church auction, 2nd dress, ect) and her ebay name is her name….What a LIAR!!!! I understand trying to get every dime you can…I get it. But COME ON!!! I was sooo irritated! But sending me an email asking when my wedding date is, ect is sooo shady…Just needed to get this off my chest. I really want to email her back calling her out on being a LIAR…but I will take the high road. Thanks for letting me rant Bee’s!!!
