Ok I was debating writing here or not.... but Catrina played the same game with the Narin customers. Replying here and there to give people a little hope but it seems what she's really doing is dragging things out until you cannot get a refund from paypal, then dragging things out some more until you cannot do a chargeback through your credit card company.
Believe what you want about Catrina, but also be aware that there are 30+ other doll lovers on DoA that have not heard from Catrina for months, and the ONLY reason they are getting anything resolved is because the artist is paying for the fulfillment of the orders out of his own pocket.
I know some of the Limhwa dolls have shown up, I'm very happy for those people, but also keep in mind that this is your money at stake here.... Catrina has been monitoring her Limhwa Yahoo group like someone who has something to hide.
Keep in mind that Anita of Sleetweath, Paul Pham, LillyCats, Marina of Enchanted Doll, and Bimong have all claimed to have serious issues with Catrina. These people aren't customers, they are artists who have been fooled, lied to and stolen from by Catrina.
If you currently have a Limhwa order I would at least consider at this point doing a Paypal or Credit/Debit card chargeback, before it's too late.
I really don't know what else to say. How many people does Catrina have to lie to and defraud before others realize that she's become a person that isn't deserving of trust? There's already 30 not including artists. Will it take 50? 60? 100? How many thousands of dollars?
I really hope I'm way off the mark here and that Limhwa customers won't end up like the Narin ones.... but at this point it looks the same.
