Hi all, sorry I thought I would have received e-mail notifications when people replied to my thread!
Thank you all for the helpful advice. As of today I have not heard another peep from the seller, and neither did Wells Fargo, so they closed the case in my favor and I get to keep my $. And I guess the unfinished dress since I offered to send it back and they never replied
If they did go to collections, I haven't heard from them, and I don't expect to either.
I will keep an eye on my credit anyway and watch for any funny business.
It is too bad really. It was a nice dress. The business seemed legit, as they had a handful of reviews for some of their other products. Even a couple for the same dress. I wonder if they just couldn't keep up with the Halloween demand and crumbled under the pressure? The whole providing me with a tracking # and then never shipping it was pretty shady though. Never an apology throughout the whole ordeal.
It's funny, in one of their two "give us our money" e-mails, the first one was sent from someone's person Gmail account instead of the company Gmail account. They even had a Google+ account, some college looking kid dressed in a toga.
