    as a rule of thumb i would never wire transfer.
    after you do this the receiver has full access to your bank account
    thus they can continue to steal until you're cleaned out.
    it's also quite hard to trace.
    with e-commerce wire transfer usually equals scam.

    This makes me so mad... I hope you get this resolved.
    In the mean time, I notified NM of the images that this bogus site is using that belong to them.:innocent:

    I had to delete some posts because I got a legal type email (see below). Please take this matter up with the Better Business Bureau.

    NEVER shop at CafeCouture.com I ordered a hoodie from them they claimed to have shipped it out but I never received it. After that they refused to respond to emails and my money was burnt!

    Most of these cease and desist letters are total bullsh*t, that are handed out no matter what the legal merits are, just to intimidate people. Their claims are totally without merit.

    If they actually knew anything about running a business, they would actually try to address their problems rather than threatening their own customers.

    Also a simple search on lexis-nexis and westlaw shows "Soenburg and Prater" does not exist. That, or the 'firm' has never actually sued anybody in any state or federal court. Also, what firm calls themselves "associates llp"? Usually the firm will have the founding partners and then the LLP designation. 'Associates LLP' doesn't even make any sense. It's an oxymoron. It implies that the partnership doesn't have any partners.

    Also, they say they've successly "prosecuted" a number of companies. Libel is a civil action not a criminal offense. You can't 'prosecute' someone for libel.

    Also, 'fashionglow' has never been a party to any action in any state or federal court. Nor does fashionglow show up in any pleading, motion filed in any federal or state court.

    Next time, tell them to serve you a complaint, and then you'll remove the posts.

    Also they claim to have 3 stores but I have done a search on the shop name and nothing turns up. Plus they are not listed as stockists on the websites of any of the brands they carry......which is NO surprise to me as I know alot about this site but I won't post it here as the thread will get deleted.

    BUYER BEWARE!

    Not related to fashion but L'Occitane.com has really rude and bad service. They screwed up an order and were extremely rude about it when it was their own fault. Eyeslipface.com was extremely rude.

    You know... a good tactic when a site doesn't give you your money is to file a chargeback with your credit card company. I've always gotten what I've deserved when I do that. And that way it forces them to deal with you sooner rather than later.

    I honestly cannot believe shopintuition is still around with all the bad stuff peoeple say. Like each website I feel get s few freebies, mistakes happen yadda yadda yadda, but like, 50% of the people that shop there have complaints including myself. And it would be one thing if they were all "I'm sorry, here take this coupon code" but they don't even care. Sad.

    That FashionGlow thing is bullsh!t.

    When someone writes about their experience.. it is NOT slander and fashionglow can't do anything about it!

    It is perfectly legal to have opinions. If it wasn't I'd hate to be the people at www.epinions.com :lol:

    Just a comment :flower: - I had an amazing experience with famousfashionsfound- I wasn't sure which size to order so they contacted the manufacturer directly with my exact measurements because the item was a preorder. That all was done within a 24 hour period which was soo impressive. Plus the item was priced more than $20 cheaper than on Blaec.com

    I Am Mortified!

    okay... so, last week, I ordered a new pair of Karl Lagerfeld skinny jeans from Neiman Marcus and a new pair of skinny jeans from APC.... I did all of this online... I've shopped with NM before and never had any problems... however, this is my first time shopping with APC... nonetheless, my jeans from NM came Monday, but the APC jeans still hadn't come... so I tracked my order on UPS.com on Tuesday and it said it had been delivered on Monday at 12:48 pm.... well, my parents were at work and I was at school, but my brother and his friend were here all day and they never heard the doorbell ring... and they were outside for some of the day and never saw a package... so, I called UPS and they told me to contact the person who shipped it to me, which would be APC... once I called APC, they checked with UPS to verify and said, since it was saying the item was delivered, there was nothing they could do for me... I contacted UPS again and they called APC themselves to take care of the issue... and now they're in the process of investigating my package dilemma by "tracing it" ... I have no idea what that means, but I just want my package or my money back...

    I'm mortified because I don't know what to do... they're insisting that the package was delivered, so what if someone stole it? what am I supposed to do then? eat the $140?

    I have a feeling they're going to think I'm lying and I'm just trying to get my money back... that's not the case... I'd rather just have my pair of jeans that I ordered...

    if I don't get my pair of jeans or my money back, I will NEVER shop with APC again... I don't care how sweet their jeans are... it's not worth it... at the company I work for, if a customer order gets lost in the mail, we take the hit and personally deliver a replacement item, or come up with some sort of compensation... APC just seems to be shrugging their shoulders... I'm mad at APC and UPS... gosh, out of 6 years of ordering stuff from the internet, I've NEVER had a problem until now... what the heck? does anyone have any advice? words of encouragement? anything you know that I don't? is there more I can do? PLEASE! SOMEONE HELP ME!

    i had a really bad experience with www.paperbagprincess.com
    they never returned my emails. in fact they ignored all my emails requesting cancellation. since no one answered my mails to confirm cancellation, i called my bank to suspend my credit card for about a month and a half. a few weeks later, to my surprise, i got a package from them and found out i was charged not long the suspension was lifted. they did it without my consent or knowledge. i tried to email them again telling them i have cancelled the order weeks ago but of course they did not reply my emails either. finally i kept the dress. i didn't dare to return the merchandise, they might just ignore me and keep the money and the dress.

    Uh - I'm shocked at the fashionglow.com letter! I know nothing more about that site than the letter posted, but that is enough to tell me I never want to shop there!

    I had such a terrible shopping experience with :yuk:www.azaleaonline.com:yuk: - Bad, awful, nasty, terrible...is my point coming across? ;)

    I ordered a dress with a coupon code. Long story short...Two days after they've shipped it to me, and confirmed my total in both the online check out system, the emailed copy of the receipt, and the paper receipt that comes with the package - I get an email saying "We have your credit card on file and we're not going to honor the coupon code you used. We're taking the liberty of charging your card the extra amount. Have a nice day." My eyes nearly bugged out of my head. I called customer service, got the manager who gave me nothing but attitude and then finished up by saying "You got a great deal on this dress. If you don't like it, then ship it back!" Which I promptly did. And that is the first and last purchase I'll ever make with them.

    i understand how it technically could be considered "slander" but we're definitely allowed to express our own opinions! geeze thats insane. that letter alone is all i need to see to know never to shop from there.
