Thirteen days ago I emailed you saying that I was interested in the CA Montini rebates. You said you had 2 forms left that you could trade me for $3.50 plus postage. I don't know what has happened with this. I waited until 3 days ago to email you saying that I still hadn't received the forms even though I had sent the money out to you right after we agreed to trade. I thought that in 3 days surely you would email me, but I have yet to hear from you. I hope you're not sick. What's up?

I also ordered forms from her and sent my end over a week ago. Last night she e-mailed me that she received my end and I should receive her end shortly. She must wait until she gets paid before she ships. DID NOT know this before I ordered. I might think twice about trading with her again.

There have been complaints in the past regarding her mailing issues. She's not always up front in mailing her end & makes excuses. This is unacceptable. Always best to check feedback before trading.

21 . "THE ENVELOPE GOT HERE!"
Posted by yomamab on Jun-08-18 at 08:54 PM (Eastern)
Posted on Jun-08-18 at 08:54 PM (Eastern) by 70.15.190.78

It was postmarked June 4th. I received both forms as expected. I had sent my end of the trade on May 28th. I will make sure from now on to check a person's feedback before trading with that person. It took longer for the envelope to get here than I thought it would or should. I always get my trades out within a day or two and thought that's the way it is with anyone who wants to trade on here and who also wants a good trading reputation.

I can say without a doubt that if I had too many irons in the fire with taking care of elderly people on top of getting over an illness and trying to keep track of trades in addition to all that, I would be overwhelmed and then some. I wouldn't want to disappoint people getting their trades out late, and I also wouldn't want to totally go bonkers trying to do the impossible. I would quit trading with people. When a person tries to do more than she can handle, nothing gets done properly. Everything suffers because there is not enough time to do everything. Lots of traders get disappointed and the person trying to be Wonder Woman gets a bad trading reputation.

IMO, I think it would be best if Anne would concentrate on what she needs to do, take care of herself and her family, and discontinue the extracurricular activity, i.e. refunding/trading. Doing what she's currently doing is apparently not working for her or for people on RS.

I hope that Anne gets over her illness and I appreciate the fact that she did actually get my trade mailed, but it was SLOW. I wouldn't want to trade with someone again who takes that long to mail out a trade, so I will make it a habit to check his/her feedback first!

I absolutely agree with Sharon.

This has been going on for years. You send your money for forms and then you wait and wait and wait. There are just too many not believable excuses as to why she didn't mail her end. The last time with me I waited 3 weeks. Too much aggravation and hassle.

You can always send a message to the moderator with your unhappy trading experience and do leave feedback under her name. This should not be happening with good trading.

She made a trade with me and went on vacation and mailed several days after she returned.
It was close to a month before my trade finally arrived.

Posted on Jun-06-18 at 08:25 PM (Eastern) by 23.123.152.114

expired or no longer useful to you? What did she say in response when you complained? I am remembering a recent post (within past 4 mo I think) where she said there was serious illness in her family or something like that and to be patient as she coudln't get to p.o. often.... People posted and suggested she not trade if she couldn't get trades out but that suggestion did not appeal (apparently)...It looks like selling forms is a high priority and necessary to her.. but getting to the p.o. is a hardship and she has not figured out how to resolve that.....She has read the criticisms in the past and responded so she is aware of the problem The only thing I can figure is that she is overwhelmed and forgetful but needs to keep trading....

Posted on Jun-07-18 at 00:01 AM (Eastern) by 72.169.80.57

it seems to me you're making excuses for her. I'm not trying to cause problems here, but we all know this has been an habitual problem with Anne for years. She has said many times she would try to do better.

I don't know how old Anne is, but if she has health issues, is overwhelmed or whatever issues she has and cannot mail her end as promised, she should not be trading period. It is not fair to her traders to have to wait and wait and wait. It is also not right to mail out traders end of trade after receiving payment. Trades should be mailed in 1-2 days, but if not she should let her trader know when she will mail. She can mail her trades from her home mailbox.

3 traders have complained in this thread. That's 3 people too many. She's also not responding to emails.

You can look at her feedback of those in the past who complained and their reasons.

I stopped trading with Anne 3 years ago for above reasons stated.

make excuses... I'm trying to figure out why she would do this.... I posted what I was doing to try to avoid this same problem---- asking her to agree that we would both send out on same day... .. It worked a couple of times but after that, she was always out... She also was unable (unwilling) to answer any questions about the form ... such as offer no. When I asked for offer no., her reply was..."gone." I guess I'm interested in people's motivations

to be disappointed in a trade with her. I'm still hoping that I get the forms I was trading for, but just like you said, it's unacceptable to be so slow. I don't understand that, and I also don't understand why she doesn't email me back when I email her. The next time I trade with anyone on here, I'm going to check their feedback first!

was here before..... people saying they were taken by surprise and upset. and Anne saying she would do better in future.... I am guessing she is elderly and doesn't get to p.o. often.... What I started doing is telling her I wanted tomail out on same day she does and for her to lmk what day she mails.... I would then mail on the same day. BUT for the past few months, every time I contact her when I see a post, her forms are all gone already.... I dodn't know what that means.... Thought it meant she is very popular and her forms are very in demand....

i know all of you are going to say excuses again
i am very sorry i love to do refunding but i do have issues with family i was so sick since the second week of jan but i have been better as of three weeks ago but my uncle had a mini stroke and i am dealing with that i am trying to send out my trades in between
if anyone has not got there trade yet please email me as i have mailed all of them out as of yesterday

if you have not got your trade let me know but i have nothing here I mailed them all the ones i have here i already wrote to people because of question.

Anne, We have heard this story over and over. You are NOT a newbie trader and know the ropes. Stop taking advantage of folks who trusted you and trusted that you were an honest, competent, trustworthy trader.

Just stop selling forms if/when you have so many personal problems.

Folks....DO NOT SEND ANY MONEY TO THIS PERSON BEFORE YOU RECEIVE YOUR END OF THE TRADE AND DO NOT COUNT ON GETTING A TRADE FROM HER IN ANY TIMELY FASHION.

She says over and over again that she will change her ways and she is good for awhile but always falls back into the same shameful routine.

Posted on Jun-10-18 at 07:15 PM (Eastern) by 70.15.190.78

Good grief, if she has a job, no wonder she is slow at trading! I already thought caring for relatives would be enough work. I can't imagine trying to do all that, and I don't understand how she'd be able to do trading while at work. My jobs required my total concentration and there's no way that I could have gotten away with refunding while trying to do my job. I don't believe it would be good for a person's sanity, and I also think that no boss would appreciate paying a person to refund.

Also, doing all of these things (or trying to do them) might be the reason for Anne's getting very sick. I think a person's body can only take so much and when he/she tries to burn the candle at both ends, the body doesn't like it and illness is a result. Maybe Anne will decide to do her body a favor and discontinue refunding. Sure, it's fun but at what price?!

Posted on Jun-11-18 at 06:24 AM (Eastern) by 173.81.163.133

I have read with interest all these posts about Anne. I have never traded with Anne--
she must not have forms that interest me. But from reading these posts she must have
forms that in demand. If she has trouble getting to the post office where does she get all
these forms??

Sounds as if she does not scour the supermarkets looking for them--does she have an "in"--know
a sales rep, etc?? If she was sick so long does she work and get out looking for froms???

I traded with Anne and like so many others mentioned, didn't receive my forms ordered. Found out she had waited to mail her end before sending hers. That was the first & last time I traded with her as she did not let me know prior that it was her practice to do so. As I said in the subject line, the post previous to mine brings up a VERY good point....where does she get her forms and if she goes out hunting for them herself then why can't she make it to the post office to mail things in a timely fashion? Very thought provoking indeed.....

a lot of people here are their own form service. They pay others to sent them forms and they may or may not form hunt themselves. There have been comments about one person too sick to get down the road to the mailbox but they always have forms. Others only trade forms they find. It really doesn't matter. If they have what you want and their prices are OK, you buy them.
