Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

I made two orders from Sweet Paula. The first order was for $180.00 worth of mammoth dried poppy pods. The order arrived 3 weeks late and tracking information showed that it was mailed late. At first I thought it was the fault of USPS, so I did not hesitate to make another order.

My second order totaled over $1049.99 worth of dried poppy pods. The entire amount of $1049.99 + shipping was taken from my account, I never received a receipt, I never received a tracking number, and I never received my product. I have made several attempts to contact the seller and the seller's ALIAS that he/she uses. It has been three months since my debit card was charged $1049.99 and I have no recourse to get my money back and the seller refuses to respond. Do NOT be fooled by the ALIAS website listed in this report, it is the SAME person and you will see that when you visit the first website listed. [continued below]....

DO NOT order from "Sweet Paula", "", "" or "". They do not list a phone number or address that is not a P.O. Box anywhere in their contact information on either of their sites, emails, or receipts for a reason! It is because if they decide they want to rip you off, all they have to do is not answer your emails.

After some research on some poppy pod forums I discovered that "Sweet Paula" is actually an ALIAS itself of an EBAY member who ripped off MANY people in the past and now has made their own site to rip off more people. I wish I had read the horror stories before I ordered. I did check this website before I ordered, so I thought I was safe, but I guess I am the first to post here. If you got ripped off too, post about it here as well, it is better to warn others instead of sharing in the forums that search engines can not reach because of a required registration and login!

Hi again,

Of course, no email, no response, one would really think that if some spent $1054.99 and didn't get it or could not get an an email back, they would be responding to this~ I dont think it's a customer, for one if it was 3 months ago, we didnt have anything on our website for this price, for two, if it was last Friday when they ordered, why would they be putting something on ripoff report the very next day? And I have checked all orders that I have got for that price and they have all gone out and I have checked all tracking numbers and they have received them~ I don't think it's another floral business, I have respect for just about everyone that is left, so I think it's someone that is cruel and spitful that has nothing better do except sit on the computer and not go get a job! If I can file something, I will. Thank You. Paula

I am Paula, please email me and tell me your name and your transaction #, I have never once had a scam or rip off report and I have never not send a product or refund~ so please, if this is a real customer~I just looked up the town and name and It didnt show you ordered?

email me so we can fix what you think happened~ we always email people all of our customers back and your saying its been 3 months but you say you just ordered on may 27, which was last friday~ it was memorial day so the post office was closed on Monday, but I know I have answered every email~ we were off on Wed and Thurs this week but that was posted on our site~

 I'm wondering if this is a real person or someone trying to sabotage us! I use to sell on Ebay(sweetpaula30) and I had great feedback~ I always try to fix any problems that happens and I have answered all my emails!! my email is and as for, that is my family and they have never ripped anyb dy off! they work for me and have a small website on the side~ I am really confused?

  Email or respond on here because I feel like this is very unfair and weird~ I promise if you did order on May 27th(WHICH WAS NOT 3 MONTHS AGO)and your cc went through, I WILL EMAIL YOU THE TRACKING # THAT IS SUPPOSE TO BE EMAILED TO YOU BY USPS, CANT HELP IT IF THEY SCREW UP, WHICH IS OFTEN AS WE ALL KNOW! OR IF FOR SOME REASON, IT GOT OVER LOOKED WHICH WOULD VERY VERY UNCOMMON, I refund tonight, but I would like you to update on here saying you either jumped the gun or I made a mistake and I refunded you.

This does not sound right, 1st off, if you do order from my site, everyone knows we always return emails and I cannot find one order at this price that I had any complaints about~ we do not have a phone number because we are too busy and we answer all questions through email, most floral sites do this because we offer same day shipping and we are busy trying to get orders out~ we also didnt sell this large of a box 3 months ago, so theres no way it could be for 1049.99? and if it was last Friday(memorial day weekend) we do have a larger box at that price with $5 shipping~ please respond so we can figure this out(if this is a real transaction) I cannot find one email complaining about one thing? and why mention my Sons site? sounds like a hater to me~ Thanks..Paula
