Anne E. Mitchell metal, chain maille & low tech bench instructor seen widely in art magazines such as Art Jewelry, Bead & Button, Beadwork, Step by Step Wire Jewelry, Lapidary Journal, Wirework 2010 and instructor at Bead Fest Santa Fe and many bead & jewelry conferences and conventions has failed to fulfil, honor & respond to purchases made to her directly for sterling silver jumprings.
I have emailed her countless times, filed a complaint through PayPal who handled the transaction as well as file two complaint through the BBB in Arizona where she lived at the time of the transaction and New Mexico where she moved to since my transaction. Anne E. Mitchell has stolen my money and failed to send my product that has been paid for totalling $150.97.
Anne has received & signed a "domestic Return Receipt" of the complaint and copies of the complaint to the BBB in both Arizona & the state of New Mexico where she now resides. [continued below]....
..... She has unprofessionaly neglected to respond with any substance of proof whatsoever that she has sent my product. She has continually made excuses that she was "moving at the time", that her computer "broke down", that she "cannot locate the USPS shipping receipt" (which she says she "always" keeps) "I had to handwrite the label so I don't have a copy of receipt", it is "tax time" and "I" don't have time to look for the proof, I am doing a show and I don't have time"..etc.
Anne E. Mitchell is at best lying and misrepresenting herself as a business women with any iota of honesty or integrity. I have more than adequate proof of charges made to my credit card, proof of my correspondence to her via email and postal service, a signed (but yet to respond to) proof of delivery of my complaint and response from both PayPal and the BBB for Arizona & New Mexico that she goes on record as receiving the complaint.
This thief Anne E. Mitchell continues to teach and be seen contributing to magazines, most recently Art Jewelry Vol 7 Issue 4 page 8 but cannot take seriously her responsiblity to her fellow human as to answer a demand for response from a paying craftswoman. I seriously do not recommend, advise or approve doing any business with Anne E. Mitchell because of her lackadaisical attitude towards her paying customers.
In short Anne E. Mitchell has stolen $150.97. from me. I am a work from home business woman of two years and it is most pitiful that Anne E. Mitchell who has had more than ample opportunity to make good on something has fallen short with no apologies or adequate response whatsoever.
Anne E. Mitchell is a thief.
