I am going to have to call Paypal tomorrow. I had earlier placed a dispute on my payment and Stavros managed to talk me out of it, and now it is not eligible to be re-opened. Perhaps if I call them, they will allow a reopening. I sure hope so, that's a lot of money to lose with no receipt of goods from the seller. Wish me luck.

OMG. That's my biggest fear when it comes to these things. Do let us know how it turns out.

And always make sure you communication only through Paypal once it has been initiated - that's a way to get it reopened.  It's likely harder to do if communicating through facebook or email or twitter.

Did anyone have any luck opening a Paypal dispute? I am unable to re-open mine, so I'm stuck trying to prevail on Stavros' better angels to do the right thing. But he has stopped responding to the emails I send him. Who knows, maybe he's dead.

 

If they actually ship this week (which is "the end of next week" per his FB post early last week), I'll eat my hat.

 

I feel like a fool, on several levels.

I opened a dispute and plan to escalate it to a claim this weekend.  I really think he means well, but is over his head.  They should not have tried to do a Valentine's box without shipping the Athens box.  Also,he needs to learn what the word "transparent" means.  He uses it a lot but apparently doesn't understand what it means.

The Valentine's Day box had me wondering if they didn't have enough for the second parcel and were either trying to get more money so they could do 2, or get more money and clear out inventory and be done.

Is this box owned by the same people as OuiPlease?????  Sounds like the same BLAH BLAH BLAH they give!  I bet Stavros is not even his name.  Good luck to all you ladies trying to either get the boxes you paid for or getting refunded! 

 

Glad I held off on this one!

I emailed Stavros yesterday as his last email promised shipment on Friday for delivery today. I have yet to hear back. If there is no package when I arrive home, that's it. I will dispute with Paypal. I have been more than patient with him and now I would rather have my $650 back then deal with this anymore.

Stavros has not answered any of my emails for nearly 3 weeks now. I would recommend disputing the charge unless you want to wait and hope for the best (or unless you're a dope like me who was convinced to cancel the dispute which I cannot now re-open, so I'm stuck with either really late boxes or lost money).

I already filed my dispute and have escalated it to a claim.  I am waiting to hear from paypal.  Stavros has not responded.  The problem is I love the items, but the communication and shipping are horrible.

So this is the email I got this morning from Stavros. No sorry, no yes it shipped. I am contacting Paypal today.

 

Hi Sheryl, 
thank you for your email. 
Let me take a look with logistics and get back to you shortly.

I hop you are doing fine.

That...is not a useful email. At all. I hope you can get your money back!

It's starting to really feel like a scam. Like waiting out the period of time before it's too late to file. 

 

I filed a complaint with Paypal yesterday - its says to give 3 days for seller to respond before I can escalate to a claim. Which I will do as I havent gotten another email from him "checking with logistics".

Yeah, Paypal's period of time is much better than credit card.  That's harder.  Such a hassle. They copied and pasted everything from Oui Please in the beginning too (down to the Tc & Cs).  Shady.

Liz @ MSA posted that they shut down their website and emails aren't being delivered. She says to process a refund request on paypal.

Wow, that's crazy! Hope you all get the claims settled. What a bummer. Thanks for the info @@Saiza!

Paypal ruled in my favor today since Stavros never responded to them. Got my $600+ refund back. Very excited and will never make this mistake again.

    • Hey guys! I want to make a great gift for my girlfriend, has anyone used this nail polish set from Aliexpress? What do you think? it is a good choice for a gift? Nail Polish Set. Thanks!
    • I made another payment on my credit card, and the remaining balance is now $140.  Yves Rocher Beauty Advent Calendar so far:  Day 1 - Sel D'Azur perfume - I've been wanting to try something from Yves Rocher's extensive line of new perfumes. This one is meant to evoke a walk on the Amalfi coast, with citrus and sea salt.  Day 2 - First Snowflakes Shower Gel - One of the new limited edition holiday products. This is lovely! It's white almond, but less sweet and more powdery than the Perlier White Almond, which I also love. I might have to get the big bottle!  Day 3 - Cream shampoo with avocado - also a new product I haven't tried yet. Very good shampoo that brings out natural waves.  Day 4 - Four sided nail file - A good file that really is effective.  Day 5 - Micellar water for sensitive skin.  Day 6 - Clear base coat for nails.  Day 7 - Face cream for sensitive skin.  I had a really hard time going back to work after Thanksgiving. But after Monday, it's been quite slow, thank goodness. They are allowing people to volunteer to leave early. I never do, even though I feel tired and burned out, because I'm so focused on my financial goals. I have been watching a vlogmas on You Tube from the channel iseedee. This is a Swedish girl who is frugal yet glamorous, and has inspired me in my No Buys. Her vlogmas (or Christmas Countdown 2019 as she calls it), is simple yet so beautiful and cozy. She is so organized, and really knows how to celebrate the holidays. She makes a simple Saturday of doing laundry and going grocery shopping seem special. I guess she personifies what you would call Hygge. iseedee is going through The Body Shop Beauty Advent Calendar. She has the big one with the full sized items. This is the only vlogmas I've been keeping up with.  I've been Christmas shopping (for other people, not for myself, lol), and also I'm going to be organizing the buffet at my church later this month. So I don't think I can pay any more on my credit card until Boxing Day. That's the day I am hoping to pay it off!!! After that I might buy myself a little treat or two, and then organize my plan for the New Year.
