This is an account of a person on another forum who posted this info about the fake sterling she got from an Etsy seller.  As it turns out the seller is now putting a comment in her listings that the chains *may* be plated, but they’re still tagged .925 on the chain itself and also the listing title does not say “plated”, it says “sterling silver”.  I have also attached a photo that this person included showing the results found by the silversmith, chains with the silver removed and the base metal showing through.  Here is the person’s post in its entirety:

Etsy seller http://www.etsy.com/shop/botanicalcreations?section_id=6976468

So I met someone at a bead show wearing a chain she got from this seller on Etsy. She mentioned how the price was crazy low for sterling. I ordered a few chains from the shop, just to see for myself. I had a silversmith test the chains, and they are in fact plated. I sent the chains back to the seller, and asked her to please change her listings to plated (and sent photos of the chain, compared to what actual sterling looks like). She said she was so sorry, and that she would change the listings and the titles, which she did, until the next day! The titles now say sterling, but in the description she put a tiny blurb about how they’re probably not real sterling…

I sent Etsy all of this information, and mentioned how many people have bought from this seller, thinking they were getting sterling chains (even if the price was way too low). and they said “I’m sorry to hear this. I have made a note of your complaint on the seller’s account. Please let me know if there is anything else I can do for you in the meantime.”

I’ve reported several listings, but maybe it would help if some more people did. Here’s the pic, (my silversmith also did an acid test on the clasp and its plated too)

there is a thread about fake sterling on Etsy right now:
http://www.etsy.com/teams/7722/business-topics/discuss/7523995/page/1

UPDATE: Due to pressure from a number of people on the forum this came up on, she has changed the names in the titles to simply say “Silver”.

Might be worth watching this though, as apparently she has done this before then changed it back when she thought the heat was off.

not so PIF’s

17 Mar

Hi, I really have no particular shop to report right now, but I have an idea of a topic we can talk about on your blog?!

PIFS– Shops that are assholes that use the tag PIF or Pay it Forward; in order to gain sales in their shops.

Here’s PIF searched (link below), and I started to browse highest price first, and the amount of fake highly priced “PIFS” is repulsing to me. lol Maybe I’m just a tad bit over-dramatic and sensitive. haha There’s sellers that have every item in their shop tagged as PIF and all items are over $20, even $100!
These idiotic sellers don’t realize that they’re not helping their sales and reputation, but the complete opposite. Pissing us all off. MOST if not all people who are purposely setting out to find PIFS are NOT looking to buy a $300 coat. Kwim? So we’re not going to buy their stupid items anyhow. LOL *sigh*

Here’s the search.

SO..I was thinking maybe you can start the topic, and let us bloggers/viewers, post.call out shops that do this in the comments section?

I found your site from the etsy forums, hope you don't mind my 
barging in! I just had a completely ludicrous experience 
purchasing some laptop decals, detailed here:
http://erinire.net/2010/12/21/spend-enough-time-at-the-pool-eventually-youre-gonna-get-wet/

I'm really new to etsy, so I don't know if platformninevinyl 
qualifies as an actual reseller, but he sure was an actual 
douchebag.

Looking forward to reading more!
Cheers,
Erin
