Bye Bye Peep-Toe

From June 2008 to January 2009...and that's like what? 8 months? Hell yeah!!

Does anyone recall the Topshop-inspired shoes I ordered to some Indonesian shoemaker I found through friendster? Well I finally asked to cancel the order and get my money back.

I've never heard anyone so full of bullshits. Seriously. Here are some of her responses to my never ending emails regarding the ordered shoes.

June: Your shoes will be ready in about 2 -3 weeks.

July: Still in the making.

August: Forgot to contact her

September: We haven't had time to make your shoes as we have so many orders coming in. (Really? I thought they were already in the making?)

October: Emailed her but no reply

November: Sorry for not reaching you before. Somebody hacked my friendster account so I lost all my customers' details. Can you send me your address once again? The shoes are ready, but I'll send it to you as soon as I return from my vacation. (Again...REALLY???)

December: I'll be sending you the shoes this week. Do accept them as your birthday gift from me. (In other words, I wasn't required to pay the remaining 50%. How sweet.)

January: I'm truly sorry. For all this time I thought the shoes have been delivered to you already. Turns out my friend hasn't send them and the shoes are still at her place. But anyway, I understand your concern. I'll transfer back your money.

And I bet her transferring me the money will take another 8 months I suppose?

At least now other people have been warned not to buy shoes from this clearly ridiculous business.
p.s. Good luck on your refund.

soph said...

oh man! what a hassle :(
since you posted about them i was looking forward to see the result, I'd never really heard of getting tailor-made shoes, it sounded so exciting!
hope she works something out for you..

LJ said...

AHHH that is rediculous.
You need to appear at her door assasin styles and pop some lead in her laptop or something.
An eye for an eye makes the whole world satisfied

chekka cuomova said...

it sucks I know, but it happens quite often!

I'm sooooo in love with you!! you do really have a darn great sense of style! keep it up and don't stop to amuse me and all the loyal readers =)

FaFaFa said...

wow, seriously?! tat's pretty long time. hmm

Diana Rikasari said...

thanks for the consolation, all...appreciate it so much :)

jeje leiper palermo: thanks a lot for the info!! will check it out :)

phanie: iya, ngeselin yaa hohohohooh

nyun.yuni: iya, gak jelas gitu orangnya...bete

chekka cuomova: really? wow...thanks a lot dear <3

ginny said...

that sucks
i feel horribly for you. they should just send you the money with a pair of free shoes.

victoria.. said...

Why doesn't she just give you the shoes if they are ready?

dD.Diyana said...

Shit, that's crazy!

I think best is not to contact each other through friendster or facebook but through emails instead. Make it official and the seller should have a proper website to sell their stuff.

I think this girl you dealt with is too new with the business and really need to find a REAL business partner.

Learn, people learn! Don't disappoint others like that! haih.

Sabar ya neng Diana....... :)

selly octavia said...

wow... that is sad.. i'm sorry to hear that.. jadi takut bli online stuff d friendster (which i'm doing now) i hope it doesn't comes bad.. i'll cursed that seller!!

July Girl said...

fhen said...

ast said...

hmmm.. namanya shop princess atau princess shop kah? soalnya pernah bikin di situ juga dan ternyata dia yang ilegal dan nge-hack fs orang! sebel banget! soalnya sepatu nyampe ke rumah, tapi dari nama toko yang beda.. aneh gila2an..

Diana Rikasari said...

thanks for all the input, guys...happily i got my money back in 2 days...yay!!

devishanty: hehehhe...yup, that's her hohooh....tapi jgn sampe pengalaman buruk gue ini bikin orang2 jadi gak mau mesen ke dia juga sih...siapa tau cuman gue aja yg lagi apes...ya kan? thanks yaaa :)

ast: ain't that one..glad u had the shoes though :)

ast said...

dapet sih dapetttt..
tapi dua2nya kaki KIRI smuaaa!

ast said...

jadi agak sangat kapok bikin custom shoes di ol shop lokal ):

Cindy said...

emang iya di, shoemaker di FS tuh pd bullshit semua, nih ya aq kasi tau... mungkin klo km g mau ksh tau, tp aq mau, biar pd hati2 : Little Olitea; Footy Chic; Miss Chic.

problem nya sama jg, blgnya bs2, nanti dikasih tau lg kpn bs dibuatin, tp aq tunggu2, udh gtu aja, g ada kbrnya lg. sm persis, mestinya km ksh tau aja Di, atau laporin polisi, itu kan udh penipuan namanya. biar dia jera donk.
