Complaint Review: Gemma Booker
Gemma Booker Child Style Magazine donated handmade crafts to fake magazine, Internet
*REBUTTAL Individual responds: Would like to resolve unknown Issue
(Thought) I did my homework and checked her out pretty good. Her email looked very authentic, and all links worked. I wasn't familiar with Child Style magazine, but figured my kids arer older, things looked legit, there were pictures all over the internet, plus thousands of facebook fans.
I decided to donate a few things to the magazine, to perhaps drive more traffic to my shop. I made a really cute tote, a bow tie and hair bow.
My first clue something wasn't right was when she asked on August 7th, for my BIO and company description. I had already sent it to her. Sent it again and emailed to confirm. She never wrote back.
It is now Halloween. I checked the links. None work, I emailed, no response. I reported her on etsy as well, it seems she has opened an etsy shop.
This is not fair. I'm embarrassed, because I told many of my friends and customers about it and ashamed I did not catch on quicker. Sad that I wasted my time and money, on a thief. Worried of the personal/home address information she has on me and my business. MAD that there is pretty much nothing I can do about it, pissed I'll never have my things returned.
So I find myself here in tears at 3 am, writing a ripoff report.
