A win in the world of scams
Fairly early on I saw that masks were going to be in my future and thought that getting a decent one that was washable would be good. So, of course, not having a sewing machine I went on Etsy. Spent $40ish on six masks of a type I like. Pockets for filter and soft cloth that can be washed.
Turned out the vendor was a scam. There were reviews that I didn't see until too late that said the vendor didn't deliver. It was entirely my fault that I didn't see the reviews. The picture of the vendor was so nice. And, surely that was true, right?
I did a bunch of vendor poking to get the product delivered but it was never going to happen. Bad news.
The good news was I used PayPal to pay for it and damn if they didn't come through! The vendor is no longer on Etsy so I just knew I was out the money but got a note today from PayPal that the refund was on the way. Color me amazed.
Meanwhile I got about the same thing for the same price from another vendor and have been using them and thrilled with them so all is well.
A small victory in the worlds chaos. I'll take it.
