I think she *used* to have a bad name, but is trying really hard to change that. I'd give her a chance. :)

well, i guess she "finally" got my money then she gave me bad feedback and got me supsended from mXc... b/c I sent cash and she had said it was okay since I didn't have time to get a money order!

There was a thread about Lisa a while back - you might check back through the list. I know there were at least 2 people who were very concerned, because they had not received their items from her and it had been a while since they'd paid.

I've had my own personal experiences with her, and they were VERY unpleasant. :upset

A few years ago, she was a notoriously nasty ROA, but recently she has supposedly turned over a new leaf. I would still be wary of any doing any transactions with her.

Avoide her.

It took over a month to send a model I paid for secconds after auction ended.
The model then had to be repainted as wrapped in plastic bags which had stuck to the model!

I paid for a LSQ CM Andy and that's what I expected for my money. Not haveing to repaint parts and revarnish him :(

I was one of the people she threatened to sue....and she went after 2 other folks in this hobby as well. She was notorious for taking $$ from people at one point (few years ago) and not sending the horses. She would post on the haynet as "Lisa, Breyer Dealer in Iowa". Many were thinking it was me....but I cleared the air and stated that I always sign my posts "Lisa Bickford, Triple B Models, Authorized Breyer Dealer". Lisa P. threatened to sue me because I was damaging her business. I had a chat with her attorney....didn't hear about it again.

I have heard she is turning over a new leaf, maybe so. I have never dealt with her as far as a business transaction, but I have had to deal with her wrath.

DrafterGirl
11-08-2004, 07:58 PM
Oh! Okay! I'll make sure NEVER EVER to do business with her again, I had WAY too many problems the first time... Still waiting for my model!

DrafterGirl
12-12-2004, 01:42 PM
Got the model- paint had bubble wrap markings, and it was VERY crappy done
sent it back-STILL waiting for a payment, she keeps harrassing me saying that she got the model- and that she had the flu so she couldn't send it out.. and that sending cash makes things slow and I know for a fact it doesn't I WANT MY MONEY!

DrafterGirl
12-12-2004, 01:45 PM
I am hurt by all this, I've never had anything like this happen, once I get my money, I'm leaving the hobby. I cannot stand it anymore!

Heather
12-12-2004, 01:47 PM
Please don't let one person ruin it for you. You're fun and wonderful - don't let her have that power over you! She'll get hers, and don't let her win by upsetting you so. :hugg :hugg :hugg

DrafterGirl

It's totally uncool, and totally unfair and it sucks. Believe me, I understand completely what you're saying - but PLEASE don't let her win. Stick with us, and don't let her upset you. Maybe you should have your parents call HER.

Please don't leave hobby cos of her.

I would have my parents call her, but she is just stupid, I'm not goin to get into anything legal!

Don't go! Most people are very nice in this hobby. I think a lot of us are crazy, most in a good way, a few in a bad way. Think of the stories you have to share with the rest of us!

Draftergirl, there will ALWAYS be SOMEONE you deal with in the hobby with a sour attitude, but that's just part of it. Certaintly it's no reason to leave the hobby though!!! It's what we love!! And love is STRONG, don't let one bad apple ruin the bunch!! Model horses are forever! Nasty transactions aren't;)

Hope things work out for you soon!!

Draftergirl, you may want your parents to call her and read her the riot act, telling her that she better not harrass a minor again. Internet predators are dealt with more and more strictly in the law, and that is exactly what she is behaving like in my opinion.

Personally, I'm sick of Lisa Perkins, She herrased Heather now she won't send DrafterGirls money back. I don't get it, why do people have to make misory for other people who never asked to be put in misory. Please stay DrafterGirl if you show weaknees against her it will only make her stronger. gah I want to give Lisa Perkins a dose of her own mediecin :hit

Yeah I know i know I love mythos, but I cannot afford much anymore, I can't even afford to buy a SM! I don't have the money to show, I can't get rides to shows, I've been told my photo show photos suck monkey butt, so I think its time to give up!

Free.

This is an example of my setup for photos:

hey, just because you can't afford to do much doesn't mean you have to give up! There are no live shows within a decent driving distance of me (closest is a *10* hour drive!). My photography skills when it comes to model are not that great, and on top of that, I no longer have a decent camera to use. I'm a broke college student, so I'm lucky to add a couple models to the herd each year (mainly from birthday/Christmas presents from my brother ;)). But I still consider myself in the hobby, even if I can't do much!

Have you considered getting into pedigree assignment? (www.ipabra.org) I'm quite involved, and it is a great way to still be involved in the hobby, without having to spend tons. ;) And from pedigree assignment, you could then get involved in racing, another area I'm quite involved in. Sure, I spend money on this part of the hobby, buying reference material (books, magazines), but you CAN get by without, by requesting breedings from other people's herds.

Anyway, I just wanted to point out that you can still be involved inthe hobby without having to spend tons of money. No need to give up. :)

I don't show much... 1 or 2 live shows a year. I love pedigree assignment! Plus I love my horses... and that's all that matters. :adore

*not everyone hates you*.


Find some aspect of the hobby that you enjoy and engage in it. I haven't had model money in over a month (a long time for me), yet I am still thoroughly enjoying the hobby....... there is more to the hobby than buying all the time.

If you find the hobby frustrating, maybe it is time to take a break. There is more to life than model horses.............

good luck.

Then it should be up to you to prove that what they say is wrong. First and foremost I am NOT one of the people posting against you on MHHR ... I have never dealt with you so I can't say one way or the other.

The unfortunate part about this hobby is if you make just one person unhappy, the whole world will find out about it. Your job is to rise above it all and prove through actions, that they are wrong.

Item: WANTED: Marx Horse Flame And Also Figures

Okay, its been about 15 days since you called my house and said the
payment was going out! If I don't recieve it by Jan. 4th, I will be
putting RED LIGHTS EVERYWHERE! You promised to send the money, so I better
have it in my hands soon, I sent the model, right away, and you said
you'd do the same.

Dear Kaitie...Tell you what. Pick out whatever horse you want on eBay for $35 or less (not including postage) and I will buy it and have it sent directly to you as a Christmas present from me to you.

Definitely the poopy expensive lesson has been learned here...never send a model until you have the money in hand! :( I'm sorry that happened to you, Katie...that really sucks. That is super nice of Paul to offer to hook you up out of the goodness of his heart! :) It's the Christmas spirit!

HeyMedic
12-22-2004, 04:33 PM
That reminds me of the time my caregiver mistakenly mailed out a package containing a $150 Olympus digital camera I had sold on eBay, before I received payment for it. I was certain I was out the money since he was leaving it up to his teenage daughter to send me the MO who had just gotten a $150 speeding ticket. Nice family. I did receive a MO from the girl's father after about 2 months so I give them that much credit. Most people are honest.

I have been known to give away money, tools, models, expensive resins and chinas to appreciative hobbyists no matter what time of the year it is. No strings attached. Just because I can.

Draftergirl--

I feel that my hobby is the one thing I really do for myself, so I refuse to let other people bring it down for me. My halters are my "extra income" and sometimes people don't come through with their ends of the deal, and yes, I get upset, but it doesn't ruin my day or my love of what I do. I thoroughly enjoy this hobby and take the good with the bad. If horses are what you enjoy, then great! If you aren't enjoying the hobby anymore maybe it's time to keep to yourself for a while but still enjoy your horses. No one can sit here and tell you how to live your life or manage your reputation, but posting on a public board asking for opinions and answers....well, you're going to get some. Sorry you're having such a tough time, just do what you feel is right for YOU, that's all you can do.

*TEARS* tears are seriously running down my face. I cannot take any money or anything from you. You are so sweet! I cannot believe it! Right now Lisa is threatning to sue me, and I have done nothing wrong!

Paul, thanks for offering, but its x-mas, and well, I'm sure you need the money more than i do! Thanks though, its just something I cannot accept from you, since, well your not the cause for this! I have to thank you over and over and over again for offering. how sweet!

From what I have read and heard of her, I don't think she has much of leg to stand on. If I was still a teenager and had somebody doing this to me and threatening to call my parents, I would let her call my mom. My mom would have a field day with her-LOL. She will let people degrade her with losing her cool, but somebody tries the same with me or my brothers (even with us as adults to this day), watch out!
DrafterGirl, I really do hope you get your money back and this situation comes to an end.

:roflmao Oh my God, my mom is the same way. Many people (including my psycho ex-roommate who tried to blackmail me when I kicked him out for not paying rent OR utilities for 4 months) have found out the hard way that you don't MESS with MARGO!!! Or her kid or husband! :lol Margo would have a FIELD DAY ripping her to shreds.

My advice? Tell your mom and dad everything that's going on, if you haven't already! Heck, have them call HER! She's bluffing to scare you off-- she has no legal grounds to sue you. In fact, you have FAR more legal grounds than she does for a suit (not that I'm recommending filing one, 'cause I'm certainly not as that would be silly... just making a point)!
