Wedding Dress Scam on EBay

"Blakely Smith dreamed of getting married in a Monique Lhuillier wedding gown -- the kind she'd always loved when she saw them on pop stars such as Pink in People magazine.Now she's out $2,400 to an eBay scammer, and thinking maybe she should get married in a courthouse. She wanted to tell her tale of wedding-dress-lust, clouded judgment, and wedding-dream-lost in hopes that others may avoid the pain she feels.EBay says Smith made at least two textbook mistakes en route to being scammed. What may make her case most remarkable, though, is how it ended -- in a bizarre e-mail exchange with her anonymous scammer." By Jeff Gelles, Chicago Tribune Link to Article (last visited 3-8-06 NVS)
