What a great bit of detective work. I'm glad it all payed off. And a boo hiss to your buyer. Particularly after you contacted her trying to track down your missing bag. Sadly however, this forum is full of stories of buyers who take advantage of seller's mistakes.

I am glad all ended well..

Although, I am sure she knew... and tried to get over... Not Good.

How much was the bag actually worth..?

What is that old saying? "Character is doing the right thing, even when no one is looking".

I feel (IMO) that your giving her more credit than due, she only did the right thing, because you caught her. She had the bag listed already. A bag she knew wasnt hers, that you previously asked her about.
I would give her more credit had she said "Yeah, I was just going to resell it and not tell you. my bad!" Then to make up an excuse. I dont mean to come off harsh on this buyer, but honestly what is the matter with people.

Impeccable feedback speaks nothing of this person's character. I am so freakin' glad I don't buy from the UK 'cause that means I will never give this ruthless seller any of my money. OP, I can't believe you don't have a different feeling about her already.

I do hope you will chose to post her ID so that those that do buy and sell to the UK can block her.

This is just sick.


I agree with this!! She THOUGHT she could get away with it. She planned to sell it, take the money and not ever say a word to you. PATHETIC!

I know what you all are saying is true.

I think if I approached her with a negative attitude, I may not have received the response I did.

At this point, I am just happy to get my bag back.

she didn't want op to have proof that she did it on purpose. the nerve of people these days, thinking that people will fall for anything. op, im glad you're getting your bag back. if she's not an honest buyer, there's good chances that she's not an honest seller either, and hopefully no one's gotten scammed by her yet.

I can't believe people like your buyer :cursing:
Op you are extremely nice, I hope you get your bag back!
You should post her Ebay Id so she doesn't try to scam anybody else here.

I also think that you should post her ebay id for us. She tried to steal your bag, and only stepped up when you caught her.
I know that I definitely would NOT want this person to be able to buy from me!

I also wished that I lived in a world where free Louis Vuittons just happened to show up in the mail for me!
