that sucks. have you tried contacting the BBB or Yahoo, since they seem to be hosting the site?

Report it. Some news programs want you to go to their sites and report scams like this - that is what I'd do or the BBB. You have to be very careful about where you shop online, esp. if you're like me and only have a debit card.

or if you paid via credit card contact your card company. I have had to do this before and have gotten my money back 100% of the time. Don't just take it in stride, report them.

Hi Ladies!

I'm here to confirm that EssenceOfSilk.com is definitely a RIP OFF! I recently just had a bad experience with them too...ordered a satin pillowcase from them, they charged my card, and I never received my order! I advise all who have experienced this to go to the Better Business Bureau site and file a complaint AND write a review on the company as well! I just did both today, all on the BBB website because I thought this was just awful! I just posted a new thread on CurlyNikki.com about my experience and I warned others to stay away from the site!

Check the thread out here: http://www.curlynikkiforums.com/gene...m-big-rip.html
