Sweatshopbytiq/Kawaii Parlor - Beware this Seller! AKA Royalteababy...

Ugh. Had the most awful experience of Etsy ever so I thought I'd do a little review. I attempted to purchase an Alice in Wonderland corset, kinda gothic/pirate striped top from Etsy seller Sweatshopbytiq in May last year. She eventually sent me one 4 sizes too big, even after I gave her my measurements, then told me to return it to her (at my own expense, even though it was her error) and she's still not sent me a replacement, won't provide a refund and ignores all my emails. I'll get round to typing up the whole story at some point, but basically she is a liar and a thief, so if you're ever thinking of buying anything from this seller, I would strongly advise don't. Just don't.

It just makes me sad that people have no conscience and are happy to rip you off. Sigh... Oh well, I hope karma gets her, someone steals all her money and she is left bankrupt and destitute!

Edit:

Please see updated post here to find out how it all turned out and for lots more info from a ton of other people ripped off by this girl http://weloveshinythings.blogspot.com/2009/05/sweatshopbytiq-update.html

OMG I was totally scammed by this seller as well, but on Ebay, not Etsy. Paid for 2 tops but she never sent them! And never replied to emails. Got a refund through Paypal after i reported her though...

Hi, no sadly no resolution. Check out my updated blog post for more info: http://weloveshinythings.blogspot.com/2009/05/sweatshopbytiq-update.html

She's ripped off a whole load of other people as well. I would definitely think twice about buying from her if I were you...

I really wish I had read this before I bought 2 corsets from her (about 2 years ago now!) Both were much too big for me and one had mismatching buttons :s at least I got something, I guess..

Hey Aerynn,

Yep, you were one of the lucky ones! Check out http://weloveshinythings.blogspot.com/2009/05/sweatshopbytiq-update.html
for more horror stories... I've had a few comments recently saying she's re-emerged as Kawaii Parlor, so watch out for that one!
