    WHO: https://www.furaffinity.net/user/bambiboo3/
    WHAT: a tail in exchange for ~$60 of blind bag MLP figurines and some fur to use for the tail
    WHEN: August 2012 ongoing


    In August 2012, bambiboo3 posted a journal wanting to trade MLP merchandise for fursuit parts. I had a lot of blindbag ponies, so I decided to take her up (journal asking for trades)



    After I had gone over all the ponies I had available, we worked out how much the ponies were worth, how much her tails were worth, what I wanted my tail to look like (black and white with some spotty brown fur I would provide), and she said that the trade would be good





    I got her address, and the next day after verifying her address I shipped the ponies and fur off, with her telling me she'd let me know when everything arrived




    I didn't hear anything from her for a week, so I double checked she got everything safely with no response (I had done 2-3 day shipping)



    A few days after that note, I got a response asking what my tail looked like specifically, and I responded



    Towards the end of September she posted a journal saying that she was packing stuff up and moving, so I figured it would take her a bit to finish and ship my tail



    In the beginning of December, I shot her a note asking about my tail since I hadn't heard anything from her in a while



    A week later, I got a note saying it was finished and just needed to be stuffed, and that she would have it out in the next week so I gave her my address (the first time she said she would ship it)



    I still hadn't received it by the beginning of January, so I sent her a note seeing if she had shipped it



    A week later I still hadn't heard anything, so I sent her my address again in case something had happened, and got a reply back that she didn't get the first note asking about it, but would ship the tail out that week (the second time she said she would ship it)




    About two weeks after that note towards the end of January, I sent her another one seeing if she had sent it. She said she would send it out Monday or Tuesday (the third time she said she would ship it) and included a picture of the finished tail (far right)





    Towards the middle of February I saw she posted a journal saying she had shipped more things (didn't manage to snag a screen cap of it), and asked again if my tail had been shipped, two weeks later I got a reply saying she had sent it out but it got returned, and I sent her my address a third time with her saying she's send it again with tracking this time (the fourth time she said she would ship it)




    End of March, I still hadn't received anything, so I sent her another note seeing if it got shipped



    A week later with no response and getting irritated with the lack of communication and saying she had shipped things when she didn't, I sent her yet another note



    A week later in the beginning of April I sent her another note, irritated with my notes being read but not responded to, and still not having my half of the trade, this time getting a response saying she didn't see my last note, but had shipped it off that day (the fifth time she said she would ship it)




    When I asked for a tracking number, she said she didn't have one but would find me the receipt ID as proof



    A week later with no tail and no receipt ID as proof, I sent her another note



    A few days after that note, I got a reply saying that she wasn't able to get a tracking number because of how it was shipped (shipped through the USPS), and that it would take 2-4 weeks to get to me because of her being in Hawaii



    Going off of her latest ship date of April 3, it has been more than 8 weeks, plenty of time for it to get to me. I left a shout on her FA page asking what was going on, but she is currently on hiatus. The shout did help me get in contact with another customer of hers though who is having similar issues


    I don't know what to do about this any more. She has said she's shipped off my half of the trade five times with no proof or anything being received. I see she has a few bewares up here already about her issues with shipping, and this just seems to follow the pattern.

    Edit: Feel free to mark this as resolved, I received the tail today.
