Day 2 - Battle with the Bots
Sadly solicitors take time, AND it was the weekend.
I could see there were already hundreds of reviews on Nigel, and he was selling fast, so I decided to reach out to Shein to see if they would act like decent human beings and remove the artwork.
At first I tried their website and found a lonely little email address hidden away. I popped off an email, and oh no - got an auto-reply back telling me not to email then again.
Instead my options were online chat (currently not working) or creating a ticket, for which I need an order number (haha job on Shein).
Next I tried to reach out via Social Media.
Day 3 - I'm not alone, that sucks.
Research day, I decided to do some digging into Shein as I still needed a way to contact them when my solicitor was finished.
And woah, I didn't actually need to 'dig' at all, just typing Shein and Art Theft into Google brought up HUNDREDS of small businesses like me, that had been blatantly ripped off my Shein.
Were there any happy endings? That's a bit harder to find, and that's when I decided to document the whole journey for everyone to see, right here.
