- Wedding: July 2011
I’m not sure where to post this but since this transaction took place on weddingbee, I’m posting it here in the hopes that all bees see it!
DO NOT, without very careful research & verification, purchase anything from Rachael H., aka “BudgetBling or Budget Bling”.
Something about the transaction felt “off” to me but I did my research & figured that I had nothing to lose. The deal on the paper lanterns she was offering me was good (but not amazing enough to look like a scam off the bat).
I paid for paper lanterns (via PayPal) that I never received. She offered me my $ back (after a long chain of emails with endless excuses) and I requested the option of a refund. She put it through (via PayPal) but I still haven’t rec’d it (due to insufficient funds in the “Sellers” account). I am working with PayPal to put a claim through & get my $ back.
I don’t think I’m the first person she’s scammed & I’m pursuing all possible avenues to report her to the authorities (local & federal). This is definitely not an isolated case as after a more careful web search, I found some postings from others who’ve had similar experiences.
