Hi,

I bought a Balenciaga handbag thru bonanzle from the seller "whitelights" and never received the item. Filed claim with paypal. This is what paypal said:

"After careful review, we have determined that the seller is at fault but
regret to inform you that we were unable to recover any funds from the
seller's account.

We'll make every effort to recover the funds from the seller although we
can't guarantee you will receive a refund. For more information please
review our Buyer Protection Policy in the User Agreement."

I don't know what to do. I just filed a chargeback with my cc company. Do you think I will get my money back? :cursing:

Whitelights is the same fraudulent seller that has been busted before. :sad:

SOOOOO sorry. I would definitely let Bonanzle know what the deal is too so they can ban her and perhaps they can help even more.

:sad:

omg! I almost bought a bag from this seller, but she never answered any of my questions regarding shipping or authenticity or her whereabouts! I had a feeling she was a fraud after she refused to meet up for a straight cash/bag exchange!

DAMN.. I am glad I did not see this listing, cause I'd have been fighting you for it!:faint:
If PP cannot do anything, immediately file a chargeback on your CC.

OMG, Brandy??? Don't tell me it's the same Brandy that was the scammer from that Vans thread??? Holy crap. Didn't she "sell" bbags on eBay, too?

I find it very sad and discouraging that Bonanzle couldn't retrieve your $1,000??? I'm sorry, but that's a hell of a lot of money to lose out because PP can't retrieve their funds? What? Why is it when it's done via PP through fBay they're quick to get their funds? This is horrible.

Good luck and I hope your CC is a decent one and you'll get your money back.

fBay transactions are covered by PayFoe buyer's protection; transactions elsewhere aren't. You can still open a dispute, but if you win, whether or not you get your money back depends on PayFoe's ability to collect the money from the seller.
