My update is:
As of today, nearly 3 years since I first contacted Katja Von, I have still not received my package or a full refund. I did receive a partial refund of $500, more than half of the funds I paid her, earlier in 2016.
Given the last mitigating bit, I am inclined to view her a little better, but I am not completely satisfied with the nearly three years of being worried that I might have trusted the wrong person, feeling rather silly at times about trusting someone online with nearly $1000, and of course, not receiving what I should have received. There were more than a few days where I was very upset over all of this, mostly during the long periods without communication, because I suffer from that "I am rather educated and sensible so I really should be able to see through deceptions" thing.
I hope that she will send my package eventually.
