Hi guys,

This whole crafster thing is amazing! I've been on other forums and the people are just rude and horrible, if someone posts something people will just respond with total uncalled for abuse. People are so willing to help each other on here it's amazing.
Luxe: thankyou for your email and for your help. I don't know if you know the austin craft mafia? I contacted them to see if then knew her as they're in the same state (well its probably like being the other side of the UK or something, I can't actually comprehend just how big america is!). Anyway they didn't know her but they somehow provided that info too! I have called the number once and there was no answer. It's a bit tricky with the time difference and everything so I'll keep having to try each night before I go to bed. Thankyou so much for your help and thank your friend for me too.

Voodoodoll: thankyou for the link! I have filed a complaint so hopefully hear back from them soon.

Zephren: that would be so good if you could let me know the name of some shops from your friend. I know she had an exhibition at a place called axiom (or something like that) there, she never mentioned any shops but maybe I never asked. Fingers crossed.

Sarahdotcom: you're amazing! I had no idea the law thing existed. There's one near me too. I can't believe all the start up business charites don't tell you about it! I'm going to go in and see them as soon as I can.

for future reference, i think the BBB is a scam.  all they do when you file a complaint is put the business on a list, and if anyone is interested in the list, they need to contact the BBB to obtain it.
also, if the BBB solicits you to join (paid membership), and if you don't, you don't get included on their list of good businesses, which is crappy, because they do NO research themselves nor do they take any actions against businesses with complaints logged against them.

also, to reply to the comment that most americans are arrogant and cutthroat...maybe in the cities, but the country community i live in is the absolute opposite.

Looks like it might be in the Heights area.  I may be awhile but when I get down that
way, I will check it out.

Just did a Google search on website fraud and came up with this.  Looks like you can report
it here and maybe her website will be yanked. Also, Houston is a rather large city being
approximately 40 miles from one side to the other.
However all that said, the best shot at getting your money back is probably the Attorney
General of Texas.  Good Luck.

Just so we don't deter everybody from using the BBB...  I got ripped off by a major electronics retail chain and had to sic the BBB on them.  This company made two rebates available for the laptop I purchased and then refused to send them to me without giving any reasons.  My fiance informed the BBB and we were issued an apology and both rebate checks ($250!!!!) from the retailer the following day.  I was totally impressed.

So the moral of the story is that if you go to them with atleast some documentable info on the situation, they seem to be pretty helpful.  I can see how they would be unable to help if they're swamped or if they don't have much hard evidence to go on, however.
