  1. This woman Stella has ripped so many people off. I am a supplier in India and she ordered fabric from our company 2 years ago and has not paid us the balance of 13,000 Aud. she is a totall cheater and completely manipulative and has no sense of business what so ever. She has stolen our designs and claims them as hers. I hope the market organisers can help me if at all possible. These types of people should suffer for ruining others lives. Our company is Jaipur Texties hand loom. Email is
    Again I warn you please do not allow this woman in your institution, business or market as she is very bad.
