I gave her negative feedback.  I suppose I should have been more careful/selective. The person only had 1 positive feedback but no negative and I wanted to give her a chance, since we all started somewhere. I think from now on I'm only going to trade with people with 10+ feedback just to be careful, even though I know that excludes a lot of new people and that makes me sad!

 

Maybe I'll mail the thief a few more BB cream foil packets since she's so desperate and pathetic, ugh.

I was burned once in the past trading on MUT and I think it is happening again -- the person I traded with said she would ship on Jan 28th and has not logged on since then, even though my package to her was delivered a week ago.  MUT trading is letting me down! :( I gave her negative feedback.

I had this happen once to me, but I believe it was a different situation than yours. The lady I traded with had 4x the trades I did and all positive. I didn't post negative feedback because she was a long time member, had tons of trades, and suddenly stopped posting. I wonder if something happened in her life that made MUF take a back burner. I think a majority of the trades work perfectly but it is horrible when people are dishonest and make you wary of others. Some people that trade with new people have them ship first just to be sure. I've had many people that were new offer to do that when we've traded. Maybe that is another option for you.

Thanks for sharing your story -- I agree, most trades go flawlessly on here but I think some people just create an account, pop onto the website every now and then, organize a trade, and never think about it again. And some people are more deliberate and malicious (like the person who filled the Beauty Protector shampoo/conditioner with cheap shampoo).

 

The second situation I was describing upthread was actually resolved -- my package randomly showed up and had been sent a week after she had told me she would send it. Maybe she waited until she got her package before sending out mine or something, who knows.  I changed her negative feedback to neutral and described the situation. She hasn't logged on since the day we organized the trade so I doubt she cares either way. 

 

I like your suggestion to have newer accounts ship first and to hold off sending their package until I get a tracking number. I'm going to try that before I make a hard & fast 10+ feedback rule. Thanks!

WHAT?!!! Who did this? In situations such as that please come to me since I can look into the matter and see if there is a pattern. Unfortunately due to the fact that we wanted members to use the B/S/T to use the feedback system we've had several scammers fly under the radar. I'll make a general announcement but you CAN leave feedback outside the B/S/T except on new accounts with less than 15 posts and haven't been a member of MUT for at least five days.

I just went to open one of the shampoos and the color and consistency and SMELL (which was the biggest give away) was completely different. This person obviously put a different shampoo in the bottle and traded it with me. I immediately went to to my other samples and compared them and they were all the same except this one which was a clear imposter. Ugggggh. I am so upset. Why would someone do this??????? I am just frustrated that I cannot figure out who it was since I traded with many people for this item and don't want to accuse anyone incorrectly. :sadno:

    • In my opinion, Tinder is more like an application for finding a partner for one night. This is completely frivolous for me. If I look for a girl for myself, then I will start browsing serious sites. You can see an approximate review in this source. When a girl talks about marriage, this gives a better chance of a long and serious relationship.
    • Greetings! A variety of t-shirts are in fashion nowadays and I am going to share the most trendy ones: Plain White Tees - If you are thinking that plain white tees are getting out of fashion then you are wrong. Either you wear tuck tees with jeans or full sleeve plain white tees with jackets. They always look cool. Graphic T-Shirts - Yes, the craze of graphic tees is increasing not only in public but also among the celebs. Even the big brands like Nike and Gucci are also offering logo tees. You can also see some unique women graphic tees here. Colorful Dye T-Shirts - On the other hand, girls are also crazy to wear Dye t-shirts. You can see the following ones in this regard. What other tees trends do you think should females must follow in this regard? I am waiting for your responses and suggestions.   
    • I think both of them are looking awesome. However, I like the grey more. I can understand how tough it is to go with a single option. I am also willing to get an awesome men graphic tee for my husband from here but it is getting tough for me to go with a single option because I like all of them. However, I shortlisted these two. What do you think which one is more good. 
    • At Spiceurbeauty, we use only the safest hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers which are semi-permanent only. The effects will fade gradually as the filler biodegrades but should last between 9 to 12 months. Excessive exercise or dehydration can contribute to minimizing the benefits of hyaluronic fillers. To maintain your fuller lips it is recommended that you come back to us on an annual basis or sooner for a smaller top up if desired and deemed suitable. The filler will biodegrade and be excreted naturally over time.
    • The Lip fillers that we use at Spiceurbeauty are manufactured with an anaesthetic, which makes the lip enhancement treatment less painful as it numbs the skin. We would not carry out lip treatments without adding anaesthesia due to client safety. If during your procedure you feel uncomfortable, tell your practitioner and ask for a break Or if you can have additional topical cream
