I will never do business with Lauren Maultsby ever again. But she has owned up to the lies and apologized.

I bought this horse he arrived in a timely matter. But upon opening him I found him sticky and stuck to the bubblewrap. Bubble marks all over the horse. It was obvious this horse was fake glossed.

When all the lies, and red lights to ME didn't pan out on FB after I posted on one of the groups so very very upset last night with what I found and pictures.

All the lies, and all the collectors on there fighting to get the truth. I so appreciate every single one of them.

The lies became too much and she posted her guilt, the lies, and the faking of this horse.

So now I have a refund coming back. It's tied up with PP right now due to the dispute. But I am so done with this entire mess. I truly hope she learned a lesson in this and will never do it again.

Picture of the horse.

I am so sorry this happened to you! :sad I'm happy you are getting your money back.

Can you use some lestoil to take off the fake finish?

Thanks. Also this was posted, she had claimed she got the "glossy" from them.

WOW She really did a number with her lies. To try and bring down a business to cover her butt???

I am so glad you are getting your money back. Sorry you had to go thru this mess.

Ugh I saw this mess during a break from work. It sickens me that she would rip somebody off, and then try to put the blame on a reputable company! They can easily press charges against her for that.

Despite the nightmare I hope you take it easy and heal quickly :hugg

I watched this go down and I'm so sorry it happened to you! What a mess... And I was glad she at least posted an apology but to think she deleted that, too. I assume she's being bombarded with rather nasty messages so that may be why, but on principle that's terrible. What she did is all sorts of wrong and I'm only glad you are getting out of it without losing any money, just time and frustration. I can't believe the length people will go to make a quick buck. At least most collectors are knowledgable enough it usually doesn't fly. But if they sold it to a less experienced collector and got away with it, how could they sleep at night? Because that's what they were hoping for...

Ugh. I'm so sorry you went through this :(

That's just awful. What will happen to the horse once she gets it back? I hope whatever it is, it doesn't involve conning anyone else.

I'm so glad that you are getting a refund WPDR.

I'm glad the truth came out and you won't be at a loss for it but sorry it happened to you Mindy. Sorry it happened at all! This sort of hobby fraud is quite upsetting.

It's been said before, but I am so sorry that happened to you! :hugg
I can't believe that she did that...and then tried to cover up her lies with more lies! At least she admitted it, but still :gaah

I'm glad you got your refund, but it's still a bummer that you're out the authentic glossy you thought you purchased.
Hopefully the seller learned something from this, and everyone can move on. :)

Yeah it was such just a big friggin mess. Then to try to give me red lights, and drag that vendor in to blame them for the fake glossy. She has deleted her apology to me. She had asked for me to delete my posts about all of it and she would delete hers. :lol sorry hun these posts are here to stay. So others have a warning.

No way. Those posts need to stay to warn others for sure. Ugh

Mindy did you post to MHHR also? I am sure people who dont use FB check that resource for references.

I'm glad that you have been issued a refund. I agree that the posts need to stay as public record.

No I have to remember how to get in to the MHHR. I rarely go to the yahoo groups anymore.

What a freaking mess this was.

Late to this show, glad Mindy is coming out ok in the end, but yes that's an awful thing to have to deal with.

Since the links to the MHSP ad showing the FB post will disappear at some point, I screen printed it and am posting the screen-print image from Blab's server. Actually this is about 5 screen prints glued together to make up the full ad posted on MHSP. :)

And for what it is worth, it is fine to post FB screen prints on Blab. It's been done before, sometimes they are relevant to a TTB situation.

Thanks Mindy, that makes for a more complete picture. Again I am so sorry you got caught up in this.


Generally speaking ... as a mod, I'd like to ask that people not make any further comments on the character etc. of LM. I know it is hard to resist in a case like this, but jumping on people is not really the purpose of TTB.

If anything else happens that is part of this transaction, hopefully Mindy will keep us up to speed.

That horses "glossy" finish was completely ruined. There would be no way to sell it as legit. I suggested to her that she send it to someone to have the glossy coat removed with either Lestoil or Purple Power. His matte coat looked ok underneath.

I'm just waiting on PP to finish the dispute. I can't figure out how to add any pictures or the screen captures. I will give them another call on Monday. They are wonderful help on the phone.
