Poshmark sux

spam deleted. Thanks! 'here's to your health!' jpoIned yet another online web site where you can sell your gently used goods, namely designer. their motto is designer goods for less. is how draw buyers. sellers are drawn in like moths to the flame by greed and a chance at making money off the books. I put alot of time for a week when joined listing alot of great items in very good shape. I listed them low as alot of people on there r competing for a sale. Notice ones who sell have slashed their prices so getting something for what don't use, want, can't return as opposed to donating, tossing or selling at yard sale. many buyers try to haggle new items in mint condition that i bought at outlet to resell for slight profit. they ask stupid questions to waste your time like are they stained? is it all 10 new with tags coach wristlets selling retail for $81 each, for 50?! uh no..dimwit. is for one as poshmark takes 10. i get 40, paid 23. am returning bags AS CAN'T SELL. NICE IDEA BUT...i THOUGHT NOT EVERYONE GETS TO OUTLETS BUT LIKES BARGAINS. aRE NICE BAGS. THEY DON'T WANT TO PAY EVEN 30 FOR ONE. REALITY: THEY CAN ONLY AFFORD A USED ONE FOR 10 THAT WAS RUN OVER BY A MACK TRUCK. WASTED MY TIME ON THIS APP WHICH SHUTS DOWN CONSTANTLY. Also some sellers sell crap, aka not as described goods. When got, were faded and shrunk. poshmark would not accept returns for two orders from lying sellers, desperate for money. said i should have asked about measurements of items against own. who does that? either they are written down already or when says 2x is. went through same nonscense on zulilly who sells clothes from China that run small. didn't accept returns for cash but store credit when all they sell is cheaply made goods. still haven't used credit gave me instead of crediting back my paypal account. now owe paypal. ugh. scammers. I filed claim with my bank about them and lost as said is their policy to give credit not money back. as for poshmark, said would credit me one sale if dropped my claim with card company. i said unless credited me for both purchases, that i would proceed with my claim.. i also said i would report them to BBB and CPA for their deceitful, unethical business practices. Told would suspend my account if filed claim against them and sellers as bad reviews hurt them. They have tons of bad reviews from unhappy customers, sellers but seem to still be in business. is because most people don't research company before buy and hand over their credit card information to these fly by night unethical greedy companies. I just hope this is the end of it and my suffering and can move on and that they have not used my credit information illicitly like given it out to other companies or whoever. Will have to check my statements very closely for awhile now. They are manipulative and twist it all around so you are at fault as tell you you should have asked more questions. They say buyer protection but there isn't. there is no customer service by phone and are stuck commmunicating via emails.repeatedly they say how found for sellers eventhough what bought doesn't fit me. got my money like a fly by night company and ran with it. I am in the process of filing a claim with my card company. haven't got the paper work yet as transferred via phone to different departments and then hung up on me as are speaking to me from India you!! Outsourcing at it's finest. Some reviews on Poshmark here. click link. bad news. Feel free to share your thoughts on Poshmark, Zulilly, Tradesy, etsy, ebay, amazon prime or whoever. ttys.

Mice in my apartment going on 2 weeks now...

spam deleted. Thanks! 'here's to your health!' 1st bed bugs and now mice. Both issues have gone untreated. Exterminator comes every other month for roaches allegedly. puts some gel under sink in kitchen and bath room. told set off traps in building. doubt even bothered. landlord matt sullivan is a mean, bullying slumlord. I complained to code enforcement about clog in bath room sink for two weeks that had told super about and went unfixed until code sited them to do so. he also filled in holes around pipes in kitchen and bathroom floors after 7 months which is how mice got in. just like twisting things around and blaming me for bringing or atleast attracting bed bugsand not treating so i had to at own expense though i rent and landlord's responsibility..same now with mice, am being blamed for giving them places to hide as have alot of belongings. exterminator who works for landlord stated myn apt. was on verge of a hoard and he couldn't exterminate properly as stuff all over. code officer came took pictures and said can't site if landlord can't do job. landlord,Gus,super, jim who lives here and does little,section 8,advocate for me,codes all stick together. if went to court, i would end up getting evicted as looks bad for meas have noone on my side. Is making me sick living here as smells like a gerbil cage. i feel nauseous often from mice running on my tables behind me on couch near my bed when i sleep. i woke to mouse up on hook clothes were hanging on with his head in bag of dog food hund up there from him. already ate $15, 3 bags of dog food. bait put down made my dog ill,vomit,diarrhea...am at wit's end. feel so trapped here. section 8 says mmove but have no move $$$ and no deposit to hold a place and landlord has security. i have looked but can't afford anything either. There is such corruption here as they all stick together,don't care about anyone but selves and own. police have even stopped coming here as here so often for noise complaints,etc as neighbors have no regard or consideration. i sleep to music and take sleep medicine now. Is how life is if poor as few choices. am poor as have health problems,RA,chronic pain so don't work but per diem if do an occasional fair as a vendor but don't drive, no car, no help,take cdta bus to events and can't board with table and many events say bring own, also want fees that can be high. tried some online selling sites that were scams and just a waste of time. Cohoes got some money to supposedly improve town and life for it's people but are only the chosen few as usual here. all on the take. corrupt. town officials such as council men are supposed to serve public not themselves. what all do is self serving. poor get poorer and well off get more so. huge rift between the two. in different worlds with very different outlooks of life here. if have a job,able bodied,are married with family, childen, money, a car, a house, fine things, get to go on vacation, have people watching your back, life is very different than if are on disability, alone, poor, don't work as little opportunity and power. Bullies here stick together. Just hope will go away. will gladly just give me a one way ticket and some money to. thank you very much!! Cohoes proud, a city that cares, yeh right!! what a crock of shit. I've got a few tricks up my sleeve yet so let the chips fall where they may. I am a very honest pwerson. i believe if I keep doing the next sober right thing, it will all work out. I put God first and put this mess in his hands as too much for me.

Local thrift store denied me access...

spam deleted. Thanks! 'here's to your health!' with my service dog. Even showed her papers to Rich, store owner of 'some of this and some of that'. He said doesn't like pitbulls, used to raise them, knows what they do..' When I asked what my arthritic, 10 1/2 year old dog, who was laying on floor, had done to him exactly, he sad he had more of a problem with me. Added how I had wronged him basically. Was suppose to sell their stuff at flea market. Also they sold my jewelry at event and lost some of it. Made hardly anything. Had in a trunk after in his shop. Told him to not sell trunk as things in it. Next he says how wants it out if his shop. I should be angry as they reneged on deal. Best to avoid him and biz as not legit. They sell diabetic test strips at discount that they buy from public for $20 and resell for at least twice that. Elsewhere they sell for about $130-140. This is a profitable biz so thrift store is a front for illicit operation. People buy as mislead into thinking have Medical supply as is how he answers phone and portrays business on their website. Not illegal to resell what own but be transparent. Let people know is preowned goods. Many have no insurance and can't afford to buy on their own so can see the need being filled here though. What do you think?

Norline is literally killing us!

spam deleted. Thanks! 'here's to your health!' Norline is a company in Cohoes and a major polluter of our air and drinking water They have been cited and fined numerous times over the years. They even dump hazardous chemicals in the Mohawk river, our source for drinking water. Chemicals being emitted such as mercury, lead, acids, etc. can cause cancer. Have smelled it in air here. Officials have told public to close windows when Norline is blasting. Big deal.They also kill wild life such as fish and fowl. As usual, the city is looking the other way as Norline contributes financially by taxes, donating to PBA,etc. and hiring workers from area. What do you think of all this and what can we do to send Norline packing?

Are we in the same town or what?!?

spam deleted. Thanks! 'here's to your health!' Was reading on plans to expand and revitalize Cohoes as apparently city got 20 million dollars. In agenda mentions how businesses and high income housing are coming. Apparently poverty level here is 17%. 30% of which are in the 18-34 age range. 22% of the population doesn't work. 6% unemployment rate. Hmm. Let's get real shall we? If you lived down town like I do, off Remsen and Columbia sts., you would say 30% of the people here are doing nothing all the time. Smoking regular and funny cigs,coming home with 12 packs of beer and so on. SOS different day. Dead end lives. Why? Are they a generation of druggies, throwaways and slackers? No I say. Many are uneducated, left school in junior year of highschool as didn't like it and felt didn't need it. Several in Cohoes are elderly so retired. Others have disabilities or other problems that prevent or impede them from workinglike mental illness. Drug addiction, mental, physical illness and alcoholism are real issues here too. There are the working poor also who work at Mohawk factory and Burger King. Many are in fast food service industry. Choices are slim and they certainly aren't going to the music hall for $25 a ticket. They don't eat out, do shop at thrift and watch every penny. They like me live in subsidized substandard housing and have to take what get. For us Cohoes is not a land of opportunity and rainbows but a grim reality of struggle like for many in this country. If being an 'All American town' means seeing streets filled with empty store fronts,abandoned and condemned apartment buildings, broken, littered, crap-filled side walks and roads,then yes Cohoes is certainly America, now. I do not find it a city that cares at all. It is an island full of selfish individuals with their own greedy agendas. The poor get poorer and the well off and comfortable get more so. The two don't run in the same circles. For some here, Cohoes is a great place to buy another bar as yes many here like to drink and get drunk. It is harder though to sell clothes, jewelry or art here. Many spend $5 at Walmart on necklace from China. It is not hand made by an artist. Clothes there are not of the same caliber as a fine clothing store. People in Cohoes don't pay for nice clothes here but buy cheap from Family Dollar for the most part so is hard to attract nice businesses here. The demographic is not good. I know as am an artist who paints, makes jewelry and I have a hard time selling people here anything unless it's cheap!I guess by attracting people with some money, good jobs, offering them pretty, pricy housing, someone will drop some cash to pay for some nice shoes in that imaginary store that is allegedly coming. Provided you can entice that store to come to a town with so many social ills, at all! By gentrifying certain areas of Cohoes, the powers that be here, are keeping or tossing the poor out. Supposedly want to attract some artists and the arts but us artists are notoriously odd outsiders and struggle financially for our art. A contradiction if there ever was one. Am here and noone helps promote me or my work, especially Choose Cohoes for Art or the Foundry which allegedly is their job. They support who like and deem worthy of attention. Nuts when art is subjective. America was built on diversity of people, nationalities, religions sexes and viewpoints. Sadly small cities like Cohoes are not open to new energy and people with different view points than theirs. Instead they find it off putting and threatening. Like minds stick together sadly. Mention have places of entertainment. Hmm..I see some seedy bars, overpriced restaurants is all. I watch cable and dvds with my dog. I get take out and buy online at Amazon prime, where what want is shipped free! I find it very isolating here. I am on disability and over 50. I do not see those like me mentioned in your article. You are buildings park for seniors when looks fine around senior center and housing. Want to help seniors, disabled? Use some of that funding for us! No activities at senior center. Can't afford community center. People in senior housing keep to selves to avoid the BS if smart. Gossips abound. Offer tickets to music hall at discount,and the same at local restaurants so all can share in your good fortune or rather 20 million got that is ours. Try helping all and not those who don't need help. You all have jobs, good ones, are young or able bodied. Try looking at things from a different perspective. Want to help vets? Provide housing not a memorial. One have is fine, as per chat with Vietnam vet Bill Eagan who lives n Cohoes. In the mean time, despite your efforts for change, I do not see any, not for the long hall. Try being transparent. I just found your plans under Cohoes economy. In my humble opinion, I think it stinks. Why don't you welcome fresh blood to your town meetings and try listening to them instead of shutting them up? Cohoes proud huh? I'm not proud to exist and sleep here at all. Is boring and lacks any spark. Would leave if could afford to. Sadly no promise next apt., town any better as I am limited due to income. Good luck trying to get people with money in Cohoes. Most people I know who are well off, are afraid to come here. Crime down 40%? Interesting. I don't feel safe walking alone at night here. I don't know what strange brew you all are drinking at Spindles but from where I sit, things look pretty bad and not as hopeful as you paint with your rosey pen. Many of you all plop butts in cars so don't know what it's like to be a female walking down the street here. I get hit up for money for example often. Many drunk or high or mental. Crap on sidewalks from people not picking up after their dogs. Pride in where live huh? Many here take no pride in selves, let alone where live! I don't know as said what city you are talking about but it'not the one I've been living in for the past three years. For each biz that came, one went out. Keep bringing up bakery as is all that has come here with help from micro loan. Of courses she sings your praises. Most living downtown don't go there as too expensive. Be careful when your cleansing Cohoes of the riff raff and blight so you can get who want here that you don't lose some of the charm of Cohoes. It has always been full of blue collar workers struggling for a better life for themselves and their families. Bring in some business, jobs and better housing but don't send the rest of us packing in the process!

Pumpkin fest coming to Cohoes

spam deleted. Thanks! 'here's to your health!' Pumpkin fest coming. Is same as fall fest. Won't be able to afford to be in again as want 60 for vendor spot. Claim costs a lot to hold.I am just trying to sell what bought, made. Gave and threw away alot sadly as no room. More vendors get, cheaper fee should be. Costs are band, $500, flyers, sign, $50. Done. Way i see it. Vendors, food, crafters, free as pay shop, town for spot. Makes no sense. Full. On wait list when have whole street of room. Again select few can profit here. Same ol'. Say how are trying to attract artists, biz, people here to help town but then squash dreams likes bug. Help selves only. I vend alone with cart. No car, help, cash as on disability. Is a shame how many here are so selfish, cold, unfeeling. Have own, heck with you. Did flea market last week. Dragged cart and duffel bag home by my self. Vendors there saw me and just hopped in cars. Gross come t on life here and vending. No sense of community here at all.

Cohoes Bed Bugs!

spam deleted. Thanks! 'here's to your health!' Cohoes has bed bug infestation in buildings of NY. Are in my apt. building on Columbia st. as high turn over, transient population, drug traffic squatters who pay no rent. Advice. Don't move here. Land of no opportunity except for few. Noisy here too. Complain to no avail to police and landlord. Have spent $200 dealing with bug problem as landlord, exterminator didn't treat.

MARrA's pharmacy is selling expired goods...

spam deleted. Thanks! 'here's to your health!' This small family-run shop has been a staple of Cohoes for years. Assemblyman John McDonald is the pharmacist there. Being pharmacies should be associated with wellness, it is surprising to see this behavior. I bought discounted soap dated 2015 and body cream dated 2012! Didn't realize until I got home. Usually a sale is on when items are approaching expiration, not when have expired. 3 year shelf life after expiration date but shorter with no paraben, preservative as in this case. They belong In trash and not peoples homes. I will be returning goods for $65. ASAP. I recommend when shopping there,you look at expiration dates, especially if items are on sale as bet have expired. Is interesting McDonald condones this but is complaining of local thrift store 'this and that' seller Rich selling his resellable ,unhealthy, cheap diabetic test strips. People In Glass houses..Best be above reproach yourself before slinging the mud. Other shop poses as medical supply so people on web site buy thinking have real medical supply company. Spindles Market also sells expired reduced food. Bought yodels from 7/21 that tasted awful Should be outlawed. These small towns are so corrupt. See such nepotism too. All married to each other. ol' boy network alive and well. All scratch each other's backs and try to keep out who deem outsiders and not from here too. Know as am from Bronx so know how it is as experience it first hand. No opportunity here at a!!. No help from government or those in charge here if want to improve town, have small biz, or are an artist who sells. Help select few. keep poor down.
