Basically I bought a buggy, woman fobbed me off for a while,

manged to arrange to meet and pick it up (at a shop)

So I went and she didnt turn up.

I emiled her for 2 days no reply!!

She was selling something else - so I asked if i could come view it (under my dads ebay name)

she answerd THAT email from him, but was stilli ignoring MY EMAILS!!

So through my dad i now have her phone number / adress.

So i ring her and she says Im at work ring me back -

so now shes answering all phone calls too.

Oh during the phone call regarding the buggy pickup she says she soooo busy and doesnt know when i can pick it up as shes out (yet in the email she sent my dad - when she thought he wanted to buy her car - she said to HIM come tomoorow at 2pm!!)

Somy question is ... do i call her

or just turn up at her house and ask for the buggy - she doesnt know i have her adress!

I have a feeling if I call her she will say shes out / or go out?

what do you think???

Take someone with you if you do decide to go - preferably a large man...

smeeinit Sat 01-Sep-07 12:00:13

kitsandbits Sat 01-Sep-07 12:03:09

PMSL -im staying in the car!

cluelessnchaos Sat 01-Sep-07 12:05:48

why dont you try and phone her from outside her house and while she is fobbing you off ring the doorbell.

RustyBear Sat 01-Sep-07 12:07:26

Can you get a print out of the car listing & the details of your purchase so you can prove it's the same person/account? Otherwise she could just say it's not her & you'd lose your element of surprise if you had to go & get proof.
Of course, she may well say she was selling the buggy for a friend or something.

Turn up at her house.

And if there is no buggy then ask for your money back!

Damn cheek of her.

kitsandbits Sat 01-Sep-07 12:14:38

She rang me before we set off and said i could pick it up!

so not as fun as a sting, lol - but at least I got it in the end

MyTwopenceworth Sat 01-Sep-07 18:15:28

ooh, do you think she's a mumsnetter and read this?!

[thinks world revolves around mumsnet emoticon]

wheresthehamster Sat 01-Sep-07 18:15:38

You know why - she's a mumsnetter! She saw the thread and panicked grin

mustrunmore Sat 01-Sep-07 18:17:29

God, reading this was like a mini-thrillr grin Did she say why all the hassle then???

kitsandbits Sat 01-Sep-07 18:20:39

Lol, no.

She was really nice though and dont think she was trying to pull a fast one - just generally swept off her feet with 2 little ones!

Maybe a MNer?! Who knows! lol

Greensleeves Sat 01-Sep-07 18:20:52

Did she call you 'hun'?

kitsandbits Sat 01-Sep-07 18:32:19
