I never received my order from Scrapbook Needs in Uniontown, PA. They claimed they had shipped it but could not produce a Tracking # or Shipping List. They then said to have CC co. reverse charges. I eventually got a refund from Paypal. In ck'ing them out, they are notorious scammers per Google search and have a BBB rating of "F." I filed a complaint with FTC & PA State Troopers started a file. I started a Facebook page and have gotten several more burned customers reporting. The moral of the story is stick to legitimate sites such as Scrapbook.com!! See: http://www.facebook.com/ScrapbookNeeds

Thanks for the heads up!! I'm glad you were able to get your funds back without an issue. I checked out the fb page there are so many people who have been taken by them

Thanks so much! I set up a web site for all the complaints. See: http://www.scrapbookneedsripoffrepor ts.weebly.com They have hurt an entire Brownie Troop with their scam!! Stick with trust sites like Scrapbook.com for sure.

Thanks for the warning....
Interestingly I just went to their website but the homepage is now "under construction" and their other links don't even exist anymore...

Yes, this is an old post from a month ago. There's a new one too from someone else. Well I won't be ordering from them!

I have the very same problem with Pinecone Press here in California. I ordered in JUNE and haven't heard a word. Hey don't answer emails, don't return calls....They are about an hour drive for me so I guess I better get over there and set 'em straight!

They certainly screwed with the wrong person this time!!! LOL You did an excellent job documenting everything on the website! I'm going to save it for future reference, just in case someone tries to rip me off. Thanks for warning everyone about these scammers!
