I messaged the seller a few days ago acting like I was interested in the bracelet and asking for a picture on a wrist. No response. I’ve also reported the shop and several of the re-listings. This is so frustrating. I wish you could write a review so badly!!

I’m betting she doesn’t have that bracelet. Just the photos.

Someone may want to double check but I think the store has actually been removed from the site now. At least I wasn’t able to find it.

@MiniMeow:  I couldn’t find it either – it’s about time! I even clicked on one of the Sold listings and got no store.

@katebluestone:  when I last checked she was at 44 sales. That’s way too many and it took way too long for them to take care of it, unless they’re so overwhelmed with scam stores that they can’t act quickly, which isn’t very reassuring either.

Reading this thread is making me so sad. I have an Etsy shop, but I also sell out of my own online store which I’ve made using Square and GoDaddy, so if someone wanted to buy from me, they can choose to go to the online store. But, so many awesome sellers on Etsy are only using that platform. It’s despicable that this seller is behaving in this way and scamming so many people. It’s embarassing and makes me so sad for all the honest sellers. I am appalled that Etsy hasn’t done anything to make this right and it’s horrible that she is continuing to get away with this fraud.

@danzie89:  This comment also makes me devastated as we are only at 123 sales and 33 reviews. We’ve worked so hard to get that many sales and every single one of those reviews. Just crushing.

@courtneysokal:  I’m sorry to say I have a similar policy to that poster. It’s too bad Etsy failing to account for the bad apples hurts honest sellers like you.

@cc33ammy:  Luckily I am using Etsy as a secondary avenue to garner sales and, hopefully, direct customers to our instagram and website. But I am so disappointed in the platform for the behaviour witnessed above. It’s disappointing to also see that so many of the sellers who have tons and tons of sales are also just resellers or importing items to be sold. It’s a far cry from what Etsy started out as. I also know that you can buy reviews and purchase numbers, so sadly those can’t always be trusted either. It’s discouraging.

Etsy took their sweet time. I hope all the people she scammed can get their money back.
