I too have sampled her wares back in the days when.....
I wonder if it's Vegas, a scare with LE or the fact that her scheduler (you're not getting those hot little emails from her, but from a guy) also schedules for a stable of other DIY girls and she decided to just go with their flow.
For me, it was no different than if someone had held me up and stolen the $$. It's a contrived, deceitful way of doing things. I'm normally one that doesn't have a problem letting things go - but DAM I'm still PO'd.
That is not right if you paid expecting one service and got something completely different. I don't see the change reflected in any of her reviews. Hopefully you will do a review so future hobbyists who don't read all the discussion posts will know whats going on. Once you know the price point and the level of service then you make the choice.
I had a similar experience with Ally last year and posted a negative review as a result. At the time I figured she was uncomfortable with me, which is her business, but I felt she should have not taken the full fee which was based on different expectations. It was the only time I felt cheated in this hobby.
Hey casual I am sorry to hear about your experience. Not trying to be a white night or anything but I have seen Ally for seven years and she has always generally been an honest person who provides a good service. She and I chat at times and To be fair i dont think diy is or will be her standard. Maybe bad chemistry or something anyway I would agree the rate could have been discounted unless she was POed or something. Cheers
