Latest Scammers

| info | Mar 1, 2014

Here I will try and list the latest scammers that are active on ANY of the dress sites as I find out about them.  I will add scammers from the other dress sites as well, because they might also eventually end up over here as well.   The newest scams will be listed at the top of the list.   If you don’t see one listed here, take caution in replying to people!

DO NOT REPLY TO THE SCAMMERS.  IT JUST ENCOURAGES THEM TO KEEP WORKING THE DRESS WEBSITES UNDER A NEW NAME!!  Also, if you don’t reply, then they don’t have your email address.   The first contact you get from them goes through our system, so it protects your email address.  They only get your email address if you reply to them!

Warning About Scams!

| info | Jul 29, 2013

Update:  To see a current list of known scammers working this website or the other dress sites, please visit our Current Scammers page.   Please continue to be wary of emails that you receive!  Please forward any scam emails you receive to admin @ feisdresses .com, thanks!

Sellers beware!  It seems that there are many scammers contacting people who sell items on the internet to try and scam you.  Unfortunately this has been going on for a very long time on the internet and is nothing new.  Hopefully this page will help make you aware of what is going on and help you protect yourself!

Any time you sell something on the internet, you need to be aware that anyone can contact you and claim to be someone they are not!  It makes very good sense to take a careful approach when selling things.  My hope is to point some things out, that you can use to make yourself aware of what goes on.

Recent Scams

Recently there has been a scam by someone wanting to purchase a dress, but to send more money than the price of the dress, in hopes of getting that extra cash either for themselves, or for a “shipper” who would pick up the dress.   Any time you hear the phrase “pay more” or “extra cash amount” that is your clue that it is probably a scammer who is not really interested in your item, but in your money.  How it works is the person essentially sends you payment, by check or cashiers check and asks you to give them the extra amount of cash that they write the check over for.  After you have given that extra money to them, you will find that their check has bounced, or been a forgery or something similar.  And now you are out the money.  It takes two weeks for checks to totally clear the bank, even though your bank will show it as cleared before then — and that is the problem.  If you call your bank, they will confirm this.

One way to protect yourself is to make yourself aware of the scams that happen through email and the internet.  There are several good websites you can read to help understand and be aware.  The more you know, the less likely you will be scammed.  Some good sites are:

Wikipedia Page on Internet Fraud

Snopes – Daily Scams

 

Ways To Be Aware

  • Be aware of strangely worded emails that might be from a spammer from a foreign country where they might not speak your language natively or well at all.
  • Be aware of any email where the person wants to pay more for your item and get cash back from you — or anything similar to this.   There is absolutely NO reason for you to hand over money to them in any instance – or even to a shipping company (which is usually fake)!
  • Beware of giving out your bank account number to buyers.  Many banks will give you a temporary account number to use for deposits only.  Check with your bank!
  • Converse with the potential buyer and ask questions like what Irish dance school they attend and who their teacher is. Then take a few moments to google the information and make sure the school exists. If you are still worried, you could email the teacher and confirm that the person is indeed a student with them. 
  • Your best bet is to converse a lot with the buyer and really determine who they are!

Hopefully this might help in some way as you sell items on the internet!

Our Funniest Dance Story Contest

| contest | Mar 5, 2013

FeisDressesJacketContestSMOur "Funniest Dance Story" Contest has closed for entries and voting.   And the winner of the fleece jacket has been chosen!!!!

Our Winning Entry:

Maggie P:  Probably one of the funniest things that has happened lately at dance class happened when I was helping out with the younger kids class. On Monday is when the kids aged 4-8 have class. In that class there's a set of identical twins, named Cara and Cate, and my TC and I can never get them straight. One day my TC called Cara Cate, and she replied to it, but her twin yelled across the room that that was Cara. We apologized for calling her the wrong name, and she looked right up at us and said "it's okay, I get me and Cate mixed up sometimes too."

Other top entries that received votes:

Rebecca:  The funniest thing that has ever happened to me has always been at dance performances. It always seems to be that whenever I'm performing everywhere, I always have hair problems! At nearly every performance I've done, my wig always falls off! At the most recent performance, my bun wig was barely managing to hang on my head by a single bobby pin, so I yanked it off when I wasn't dancing and tossed it on the ground behind me. The performance was at a school, and you could hear the gasps of the children and teachers as they saw me toss a ball of curly hair in the ground. I tried to hide my embarrassed face by laughing, but this isn't something you live down! I still laugh about it today, and this isn't the first time I've had hair problems at a performance!

Cody H:  My older sister Casey was at a feis about 3 years ago and it was an outdoor feis. She was dancing and all of a sudden her wig flew off and she is still dancing with an old sweat sock sitting on her head that was used in place of a donut. She was mortified, some of the dancers laughed but she had the last laugh because she ended up getting 2nd place out of 35 dancers in the prelim comp!

Emily M:   I have lots of cousins in NJ so we go there a lot for feises. (It's about 6 hours away from where I live.) One time we went to a feis at a high school in NJ. I was still in tiny tots and my older sister was in prizewinner. There were so many dancers in her group that they were lined up in 3 rows at the back of the stage with the gym wall behind them, waiting for their turn to come out and dance. After the competition started, A MOUSE RAN ONTO THE STAGE!!! It must've gotten scared because it sat very still right on the gray duct tape in the middle of the stage. We were afraid one of the dancers would step on it! At first the judge and the girls dancing didn't even see it, but the crowd and a lot of the dancers lined up in the back did. Everyone started whispering. Finally the judge saw it and told the dancers to stop. And that's when things got really crazy! A couple of dads ran onto the stage to try to get the mouse, which ran right towards the dancers lined up at the back of the stage!!!! They all started screaming, and pushing, and a bunch of them actually fell down into a big pile of dresses and curls! The mouse ran off the stage with the dads still chasing it, and it escaped under the bleachers. They never did catch it!
And then there was the time we went to a feis in NJ a whole day late! My dad was really not happy with my mom that day.

Bill:  Years ago, when male Irish dancers wore kilts and babies wore diapers, I was dancing with the Denver Ceili Club at a church. My kilt had a Velcro fastener, and I hadn't been diligent about cleaning the link out of the Velcro. The Velcro failed when we were dancing the 4-hand reel. Have you ever tried to dance a 4-hand while using one hand to spare the audience the sight of your tiger-striped flash pants? After that number, a mom came to my rescue with a big pink-headed diaper pin. We kept the pin in the club as an award for any of the men who suffered embarrassment during a performance. We had to retire it after a performance for a seniors' group. One woman in the audience, who may have been hard of hearing, kept commenting in a foghorn voice and in detail exactly how attractive she found one of the men in our group (fortunately, not me!)

Thanks for entering!  It was fun reading all of the entries.     I will contact the winner by email and mail out the fleece jacket.   Happy Dancing!

Welcome To The New Website!

| Uncategorized | Oct 14, 2011

Welcome to the new website for Irish dance dresses, vests and accessories!   The original site was IrishDanceDressShop.com which was a great start and was a popular site for listing dresses for free.  My goal was to have a site where people didn’t have to spend money to list their items.   And it was great!   But at time went on, I found that the underlying system in use just wasn’t stable enough and easy to use.

So I recently upgraded to a new system – and new website name along the way (easier to remember).   The original website, IrishDanceDressShop.com will still link in to these listings once I switch everything over.  So everyone will still be able to find it and see all of the dress listings.

I think users will find this new system, easier to use and better all around.    So thank you for your patience with this upgrade!   If you have any suggestions on the site, I’d be more than happy to hear them and try to incorporate them.   It will take a week or two of getting used to this new system for me to be able to tweak things to be better.

Thanks for your understanding!
