WHERE VACATIONS START!
This was just posted on Patsi's Facebook page. . Good luck folks. If she has kept your items from you for over 90 days, then I guess she's saying it was donated to charity.

Hola Val y todos,
does anyone know if any Panamanians have been a victim in this scam? My thinking is that if there were, and you can contact them to join the case against this crook, the chances of getting legal action would increase greatly.
Gringos messing with gringos isn't generally front page news. Sorry for the generalization, but that is just how it is. Another problem is the black mark that Boquete could get will not be welcome by those who have vested interests in Chiriqui. For example, I don't think the web sites that trumpet Boquete as "land of the eternal spring" are going to welcome this episode as an answer to the question: How is the crime rate in Boquete?
I doubt if any Panamanians were victims of this Scam Jim. The people that got ripped off should of thought twice before trusting a fly by night gringo, That had no proven track record to speak of. These people should have dealt with the Zapadora which Dianne has been consigning furniture etc. for well over 10 years in the Boquete area. Especially Marion Cramp which lived virtually around the corner from The Zapadora. Well you live and you learn. I hope that the people that lost all there money with Casa Decor have learned a lesson out of this.
The truth is YES, Panamanians were hurt in this scam.
Another truth, I thought (my bad) that Patsi was a FRIEND I could trust.
I did consign my things with Zapadora first.
Yes, I have learned a lesson, to warn others not to fall into the same trap
that we all have.
And Michael, it really wasn't called for to make fun of those who were hurt.
It doesn't help people.
where is she and WHY hasn't she replied to this?
She knows there were no contracts. She might have had some sign and said she would get them a copy but that never happened.
Promises, promises of so many things.
Now she can just take other peoples things and try to live with herself,
she is innocent.
Some people did have contracts with the 90 day clause. But when the 90 days approached and they tried to get either the money or the items back, then the stalling started to happen; excuse after excuse and pretty soon 90 days has turned into 100, then 300 and more. Here's the list of excuses I heard.
Shoot, let me check on that
Ooops, left it at home
I'm waiting for more checks
My bank account was hacked
John handles that
John's not here
John's too busy
...and about a hundred other iterations of the same crap.
Have to agree with others Michael. This is NO LONGER about the monetary aspect for most of us and I believe that MOST who have replied here have made that very clear.
You "doubt if any Panamanians were victims of this Scam"? Where is your credibility since you have decided to bring in your opinions? This isn't about speculation of someone who clearly doesn't know much of anything about this!
This is not going anywhere. Will you please try to post in the Rant or somewhere else unless you have some FACTS to back up what you are saying?
Also, in conclusion, I was really hoping that no one would bring up Diane's name in this since this has nothing to do with her! She is a WELL RESPECTED member of this community because she has earned her reputation and I have been a happy client of hers for years.
Unless I have something that could benefit others (in other words not scold someone like Michael), I am done adding to this post.
Thanks to all of you.
I'll close this thread now and a new one can be started if there's any info to add.
