Um ... didn't you steal that shit?

Hey guys, remember that old post where someone said Charlottcharm stole their rare Iron Gate series MMM choker?

Guess what, after lying low for 2 years, Charlotte is selling that same stolen choker in the MMM comm right now.


For context:

- Iron Gate series items came out in 2006, and is, uh, IRON GATE so you can figure out how rare/old those items are
- theft happened in 2010
- in the original GTFO post (also from 2010), Charlotte apparently claimed that she picked the choker up from AX ... which is pretty unlikely

IDK guys, is this kind of thing reportable to the comm_sales mods?

I don't know if it was ever resolved, but wtf at those prices. Is Church Gate seriously going for that much? And $40 for used socks?
21st-Feb-2012 10:20 pm (UTC)
Brand socks are always going to be stupid, lbr

Church Gate imo isn't worth that much, but it's hard to find in the JSK version these days so people will try to take advantage of the rarity. :/ I've been noticing that people have tried to flog it for incredible prices but eventually had to repost them at discounted rates lol

Seriously. $250 for a used cutsew that's rated 4/5? You can buy a new one for that price.
23rd-Feb-2012 12:24 pm (UTC)
Shit, you could even buy 3 new brand ones if you're a savvy shopper!
21st-Feb-2012 10:26 pm (UTC)
I don't think it was ever resolved.
If she stole it I don't see why she'd hesitate to put it up for sale too to be honest...
22nd-Feb-2012 04:10 pm (UTC)
If you're accused of stealing something, then put the same item out for people to see...Can you figure it out? Selling an item you were accused of having stolen item is pretty stupid.
22nd-Feb-2012 08:36 pm (UTC)
Oh, I meant she wouldn't have moral restraints to sell it.
23rd-Feb-2012 02:19 am (UTC)
Oh that makes so much more sense. XD

Then IA completely.
21st-Feb-2012 11:41 pm (UTC)
so she "bought" the choker for 200$ and now is selling it for 80$? weird...

IDK what goes on in the head of a thief, but I hope some tiny human part of her just feels guilted/haunted and she just wants to get rid of the item at this point after laying low with it for 2 years.

Orrrr she just wants the attention of getting caught, because damn she was not smart about it at all, even in the beginning. *shrug*
22nd-Feb-2012 01:26 am (UTC)
Yeah, I remember that! She had claimed she bought it from a convention vendor a little after she moved.......... -.-
I don't know how possible that is and there was a lot of people saying they did/didnot see Moitie items at the vendor early in the convention sooo......... -.-
Nice catch, though! haha
22nd-Feb-2012 01:40 am (UTC)
It's not possible at all since it's apparently from the Iron Gate series, which I believe significantly predates the time of alleged theft (june 2010 ish going by the original GTFO post). :S
22nd-Feb-2012 02:00 am (UTC)
Gottcha. I know sometimes they sell old used items but it wouldn't make as much sense if its that rare of an item :/
22nd-Feb-2012 05:34 am (UTC)
Yeah, 2006 to 2010 is decaaaades in lolita years, and especially with Moitie items ... I know I've always been on the hunt for specific accessories predating 2010 and they are IM-POSS-I-BLE to find anywhere without flying out to Japan and breaking into houses lol. The chances of her picking up an Iron Gate series item at a convention booth is hysterically nil.
22nd-Feb-2012 01:33 am (UTC)
Totes remember that and wow if she really did steal it then that's pretty low. Did anyone let the girl she stole it from know?
22nd-Feb-2012 01:40 am (UTC)
That's what I was just wondering. The whole situation has been just a big 'wat' for me. Who does that? I mean really.
22nd-Feb-2012 01:50 am (UTC)
I just sent the original poster a PM with links to this post and the salespost ... and left it in her hands. *shrug* It was a huge protracted thing so who knows.
22nd-Feb-2012 04:09 am (UTC)
the OP of that post is the one who charlottecharm stole from, it wasn't really hearsay as your post implies.

also, damn. that takes balls.
22nd-Feb-2012 05:01 am (UTC)
Whoops, I didn't mean to imply that since I believe 100% that Charlotte stole from her, I'll edit it right now.
22nd-Feb-2012 05:24 am (UTC)
That sucks since there isnt really any gotchya proof for the mods to be like "you cant sell this stolen item here.". I think she stole it though and this really sucks. Why do people suck so much?!
22nd-Feb-2012 05:31 am (UTC)
IA, I mean it's heavily obvious she stole it because of its rarity and the extreme unlikelihood that the Kera booth at AX would carry such an old secondhand item (Iron Gate is the most treasured series for MMM fans, and MMM accessories in general predating 2009 are fucking impossible to get secondhand).

There was a late-to-the-party comment in the original GTFO post from someone who allegedly C&Ped a post from Charlotte's old blog that described previous issues with shoplifting (and getting caught lol), so it's a shitty situation involving shitty people who likely have some serious problems. :/
22nd-Feb-2012 11:37 pm (UTC)
I feel bad, I noticed it was bought and I think I know who by. I hope im wrong and maybe she bought it back or someone bought it for her.
23rd-Feb-2012 01:36 am (UTC)
Yeah that's what I'm hoping too so I don't want to jeopardise any possible chance that the owner could get her item back by demanding a ban. :/
22nd-Feb-2012 06:33 am (UTC)
She cray cray.
22nd-Feb-2012 07:32 am (UTC)
Damn, I remember this. That crazy bitch is shameless! I try to avoid calling a person things like that online, but I'll be damned if she didn't fucking EARN that one.

it's linked right in the post dude
22nd-Feb-2012 11:40 pm (UTC)
You gotta be shitting me. The balls she has.
23rd-Feb-2012 12:55 am (UTC)
I wouldn't say balls, I'd say the "trait of being a horrible fucking person" she has.
23rd-Feb-2012 06:07 pm (UTC)
Sorry completely OT, but I totally squealed when I saw your icon.
Potter Musicals ftw

Holy fuck she's crazy.

What kind of terrible person does that? (Aside from her.)
23rd-Feb-2012 11:19 pm (UTC)
I just came across this now, and it seems to have sold already. :/ I really feel bad for the girl who got that stolen from her!
25th-Feb-2012 03:43 am (UTC)
Hooooooly balls, I remember this.

...wow. I wonder if the buyer knows she bought a stolen choker that had a whole lot of personal value to the original owner. :/
13th-Mar-2012 04:48 am (UTC)
I do indeed! And I bought it to give back to shishirui. ^^
13th-Mar-2012 08:36 am (UTC)
Oh, that's wonderful! That's incredibly generous of you, I'm glad she'll have it back, especially since it seemed to have a very personal meaning for her.

Really, though, that's very selfless of you. :)
1st-Apr-2012 10:49 pm (UTC)
I think that's amazingly selfless of you. Kudos to you for being awesome :)

You are wonderful! I haven't read any lolita communities in forever, and this is something great to come back to.
17th-Apr-2012 04:25 am (UTC)
Haha, thank you!! Really though, its the least I can do for a friend. We were supposed to go to Sakura Con together where I would give it to her, but she couldn't make it. T_T So, I'm just gonna mail it to her. I was hoping to give it in person though >_
1st-Mar-2012 03:42 pm (UTC)
That is like.. THE LOWEST. I hope the person who bought that choker sees this and realizes she bought a stolen item. Maybe she and the previous owner could work something out..
13th-Mar-2012 04:47 am (UTC)
I am the person who bought the choker with the full intentions of giving it to shishirui, who is one of my best friends. ^^
14th-Mar-2012 01:48 pm (UTC)
That is the nicest thing I've heard in ages. The world needs more people like you! I'm sure she'll be amazingly happy to have it back! :)
17th-Apr-2012 04:24 am (UTC)
Yes, she is *__*
8th-Apr-2012 04:07 pm (UTC)
I hope you filed a chargeback afterwards so she couldn't get anything for reselling your friend's stolen merchandise, lol.
17th-Apr-2012 04:23 am (UTC)
I didn't know that was possible D:
