Not really an update, cause i STILL haven't gotten my item. last i heard October 22nd she was aiming for Thanksgiving. well, another lie.
so i tried filing a claim with paypal.
what i said in the claim:
"After completing the payments for this item in the beginning of July I was told it would be about 2 weeks until my item was complete, pictures would be emailed and then the item shipped. About a month later I hadn't recieved it and was again promised it would be shipped "soon". This went on for months until at last I was told the truth that it had NOT been completed and was still in process (October 22*). The last I heard from the seller's friend she was aiming to ship the item by Thanksgiving. I have not heard from the actual seller since October 22 however.
I understand things sometimes get in the way of business but by misleading me about my product time and again I have lost all trust in this seller and believe I will never actually recieve this item I paid $400 for (payments were made in increments over June 9th - July 11th). A few months ago she had also said she would not be handling emails regarding her business anymore but allowing her friend and husband to do so. I do not see this as being very professional and it leads me to be even more suspicious of her true intentions.
I have all the emails we have exchanged saved and I am willing to forward them, place them in a document, or mail hard copies out if it would help to see the process this ordeal has taken and as proof to support my claim.
*(actually i had heard from vermy about that before oct 22... need to proof myself better)
what popped up IMMEDIATLY after hitting the send button:

at least she's "noted" though. whatever that means. basically i read paypal's policy of 45 days as "screw you, we could really care less". but, whatever.
