More Incredible Truth About Trish!
Well, she's at it again only now she's using other resources. Before you read on, please note that this is the whole truth and not designed to defame Trish in any way. I just feel she needs to be exposed and pitied. She had an 8-track tape carousel holder for sale on eBay and my friend was interested in it so he sent her a message inquiring about it. Here's the response he first got:

(This is an automatically generated response.)

SUMMER HOURS - I answer email and do eBay work Monday through
Thursday.  I deposit payments and ship twice a week sometime in that
same 4 day time frame.

If you're inquiring about your purchase ...
PLEASE NOTE: This is a busy time with my (non-eBay related) freelance
business. I try to mail packages as quickly as possible, but sometimes
"get backed up."  Please allow 2 to 4 weeks for delivery from the time
checks are received and deposited. Items paid for by money orders and
cash ship first. Thanks!  You will receive a confirmation email when I put
your package in the mail, so you'll know to look for it.  In four years on
eBay, I have never forgotten a buyer or a package! :-)

I am juggling eBay along with my full-time freelance business and
family responsibilities.  Please know that I will respond to eBay
related email, and mail eBay packages, as quickly as possible
given other demands on my time.  Thanks for your note, and hope
you are having a great week!


Now this seems like a very nice response but what happened next was totally uncalled for and dumb. She actually had the nerve to "Forbid" him to bid on anymore of her auctions! Now I ask you, what kind of crap is that? Here's what I think, she enjoys playing with people which is plain to see from page 1. I don't understand how she could "Forbid" someone she doesn't even know from buying something she was selling for a friend! It's all written in her auction listing. Please carefully note the date the auction started and the reason. Here's the first part of it below:

See how lame the excuse is? How could there be an error in listing when the auction was going on for weeks? Couldn't she have seen the error before that if that was REALLY the case? I think so! Now here's the last part of the auction listing. There's a lot of mumbo jumbo in it:




eBay Sales Since 1998
You're bidding on a great treasure from RetroTrish:

Great RETRO 1970s 8 Track Tape Holder -- plastic - rotates carousel style. A wonderful addition to your retro collection! I currently have an 8 track player and approximately 60 tapes (8 track) listed on eBay. These were given to me by a friend to sell. He was the original owner in the mid 1970s. The 8 track player and the tapes have been carefully stored in boxes in his guest bedroom; they are in good condition and have not been exposed to dust or heat. Please check out my other auctions for lots of retro 8 track fun!

WOW! A lot of words huh? Anyway, the point is my friend fit all the criteria. He does NOT have any negative feedback or no feedback at all. As a matter of fact, his first feedback is positive. His feedback is NOT hidden and he IS within the USA. If you read carefully, it's all listed in the discription. She just wanted to be ignorant. He wasn't the only person she did this to either. My friend had someone else bid on the item and that's when she ended it. Now how stupid is that? VERY if you ask me. In addition to this, she also has a complaint in her feedback from someone else she screwed over. Check it out:

Complaint : Quite disappointed; auction ended 3/24, check cleared 4/3, rec'd item 6/18 

Here's more proof of this woman's ignorance. Bottom line, she doesn't care about anything or anyone but herself and her retro crap. My friend by the way found a much better and cheaper 8-track carousel holder and he's extremely happy about it:) I guess it's her pitiful loss and his wonderful gain:) This all goes to prove that people who set out to do something dishonest ALWAYS lose in the end and in my opinion Trish lost BIG time:) The laugh is on her now HAHAHA!

She's At It Again!
