|Taking money from a baby |

|This is a report of theft and fraud against, Jenny Fredrika Sandberg.|
In January 2013, after 3 months of looking for a stroller that would be most ideal for our baby that was due in June 2013, I finally found one that would suit my financial needs. Jenny offered to collect the item on my behalf, to which I was very grateful since I was not in the best physical condition at that point.
The item that I had planned to purchase was to be sold through blocket.se by a private seller. I contacted the seller on 8 January 2013 and by 13 January 2013 arrangements had been made for Jenny to collect the item, and I transferred 1400SEK to Jenny’s personal bank account. Jenny then made multiple excuses as to why she had not collected it and eventually on 1 February 2013, she informed me that her and her father Sten Sandberg, had finally collected it. That night I even got an email from who I thought was her mother Vivan Sandberg, saying that they would store the item at their home until I can collect it. Later I discovered that this too was a lie and that Jenny had created a fraudulent account on behalf of her mother to email me with. Her mother when contacted had never even heard about the situation.
After delaying the collection for so long, Jenny had claimed that they negotiated with the seller and got the item for 850SEK instead of 1400SEK. Jenny then transferred 500SEK back into my bank account, as a type of compensation.
On 2 April 2013, I had called Jenny’s mother Vivan to hear if it would be ok for me to collect the item the next day. This is when Vivan told me that she had no knowledge of the situation and told me that she would instruct Jenny to contact me and explain. Jenny did so later that day, saying that she had now, without our permission or knowledge, moved the item into a friends (Anna Eva Eriksson) storage facility for keeping. She claimed that her friend was to move to Uddevalla at the end of the month and she would bring the item with her during the move so that I could collect it.
Jenny had claimed to contact her friend and arraigned a collection on 12 April 2013 at 14.30 at Kampenhof bus station. I spent over a hour waiting to collect the item, which never arrived. Jenny then said that she could no longer reach her friend and could not get the item either.
Jenny then said that as it was her fault that the item was now missing, that she would organise a new stroller and deliver it to me as soon as possible, making multiple agreements for delivery which were not kept to. Jenny claimed to have purchased a new stroller which she was to bring with her to Uddevalla and deliver to me. When this did not happen, I had confronted Jenny and this had become a huge argument on 21 April 2013, via email and text message. The stress of this argument and all of the lies caused me to have 2 large contractions, at which point I told Jenny that I was not going to allow her lies and dishonesty to stress me out any further as it was not worth risking me or my unborn baby’s health.
The following morning at only 32 weeks pregnant, my water broke and I had to be rushed to hospital. Once admitted they confirmed that I was in labour and I was immediately put on an IV to stop labour contractions as my baby may be at serious risk if he were to be born 8 weeks early. They continued this treatment for 24 hours, at which point I went into full labour due to stress and delivered our son 8 weeks early on 23 April 2013. He was immediately rushed to the NICU and put on a ventilator to help him breath and he was placed in an incubator. Our son spent 3 weeks in NICU before we were able to take him home.
During our time in hospital, we incurred additional expenses which would not have been the case if our son had been born on time. Additionally we lost 3 weeks of income as my husband works on an hourly salary and only gets paid for the hours which he works and he was unable to work while our son was in such a delicate state in NICU.
At this point Jenny said that she realised how serious the situation had become and that we now needed the stroller sooner. I had found a company called Bussgods which could deliver the stroller affordably. I informed Jenny about this and she claimed to hand in the stroller on 2 May 2013, to be shipped to me. After a few days of trying to get the tracking number from her, she sent me a drop-off receipt, saying that it would be delivered within 3 business days. When the item had not arrived I contacted the company who could not track the item.My mother-in-law took the drop-off receipt to the company on 9 May 2013 and they confirmed that it is not their document and that it was illegally created by her. This woman was now taking her lies a step further by commiting fraud - creating a document that she claimed was from the company and affecting their reputation.
At this point I realised that she had lied all along and had no intention of supplying us with the stroller which she had promised and which we had paid her for. We then made contact with the seller of the item from blocket.se which we had originally planned to purchase the stroller from, which Jenny had claimed to have collected and stored for us. The seller confirmed that the item was never collected.
Due to Jenny’s lies and delays we were forced to come up with an emergency solution, which had us renting a car seat from the hospital for 400SEK and needing to purchase a new stroller for 3500SEK, since we now did not have the time to try and find another budget option.
My mother had then contacted Jenny’s father on 16 May 2013 from South Africa, as she had provided the funds for the stroller. Jenny was no longer making any contact with us. My mother explained the situation to him and he promised to deal with it. Later that day I received a signed agreement from Jenny, stating that she would pay 1800SEK and replace the stroller. I was asked to inform her if that would suit us but since we had already incurred the expense of purchasing a new stroller, we informed her that it would no longer be needed and to come up with a new offer that suited her.
She then sent another agreement on 20 May 2013, which stated that she would make a payment of 3000SEK to my personal bank account and a further 1000SEK to be transferred on 25 May 2013. After that she offered to pay an additional 800SEK every month on the 25th until another contract is made. This agreement was decided by her as a way of compensating us for everything she had put us through as well as financial compensation due to loss caused by her actions.
To date I have only received 2000SEK which cleared in my account on 24 May 2013. Since then I have been getting various excuses of her bank being slow and that the transfer should come through as well as her saying that she would deal with it when she is back in Sweden as she claimed to be in various countries. I have had no further contact with her since 30 May 2013.
As of today, the agreement has not been honoured by Jenny. I realise that the money we have lost due to her actions will never be returned, however, I do not feel that someone that can lie to this degree and commit fraud, dragging a company's reputation down, should get off that easily. Who knows what lies she will tell and what she might do to a company that she may work for in the future.
In the time that I had known her, she had also come up with extravagant lies about having had a heart disorder that lead to a heart transplant, a relationship with celebrity, Justin Chon and even an affair and a miscarried pregnancy with an international sports star who is married. Her lies know no end.
