A mom sold a $120 Versace coat on Poshmark. What she got back was horrifying.
In case you haven’t heard, Poshmark is an online secondhand clothes marketplace where people can go to sell their old clothes. Think of it like eBay, but specifically for clothes. And not just the cheap stuff either: you can find great deals on designer labels like Versace, Saint Laurent, and Dolce & Gabbana.
Nicole Lehman of Union City, New Jersey has actually made some serious side cash by selling clothes on Poshmark for the past four years. She's amassed 71,000 followers and even earned the coveted title of Posh Ambassador, which is given to sellers who meet the highest levels of customer satisfaction.
Last November, Nicole sold a leather-and-corduroy Versace jacket on Poshmark for $120. Then, the buyer sent it back through the website's return policy. What Lehman got back was "disgusting."
First, the jacket was badly ripped and missing a button, but that wasn't the worst part. “I noticed the fabric was stuck together, so I’m like pulling it apart, and my first thought was, ‘She’s pranking me with superglue,’" Lehman told the New York Post in an interview. "But then my husband came over and was like, ‘Wait a minute. Don’t touch that. It looks like something else.’”
Lehman purchased a semen test kit on Amazon and confirmed that the coat was covered in little swimmers. Naturally, she freaked out.
After she'd calmed down, Lehman then reported the issue to the police and to Poshmark on November 7th. Poshmark responded with an automated message saying that she'd be given 60$ in site credit, but no other action would be taken.

The buyer turned out to be another Poshmark Ambassador under the account of @poshbargains. Soon after returning the coat, Lehman started receiving threatening messages on Facebook from someone named Lori Tatum.
One message read, “Careful what you accuse people of, sweetheart. Your wishes can clearly come true!” It was followed up with a picture of a middle finger and the Versace Coat's missing button.
This situation was also reported to Poshmark, but they said that since the messages were sent outside of the Poshmark app, they couldn't do anything about it. The police, hopefully, will have more authority to act.
