Would you say something?

I was just cruising another boards and on the "new posts" a post came up in their trading section. I recognized the name, and it's a WAHM that has gone bad SEVERAL times and scammed quite a few people. There's always plenty of drama about how it's not her fault, packages lost in the mail, etc. She has a rating w/ 4 pos and 1 neg, but her MO seems to be to wait a bit after scamming people and then popping up again. I see she's selling the same stuff that she's scammed people on before and I wanted SO badly to PM the people who posted in her thread. I know this is probably totally out of line and none of my business. But I feel like I'm standing by and watching a crime unfold and choosing to do nothing. What should I do?

I would. If I were about to buy something from her I would want someone to warn me. But, you should also mention that this was what happened in the past if you have any doubts about her going legit.

I've been warned through pms a couple times and I was grateful for it.

I would probably say something but I'd keep it to a PM. I wouldn't want to post something on a public board-this always goes so wrong. I've been warned about a certain eBay "merchant", and I'm so glad for it!

Thanks everyone. I PMed the people who had posted in her thread. I wouldn't ever do it on an open board, and I just directed them to please check the Juicy Apple Report on Yahoo before they made any trades with her. I feel a lot better, but I really wish people like that would just GO AWAY instead of resurfacing to scam more people a few months down the road!

I know, me too. It's people like you who will save others from being affected by her dirty tactics/scamming/stealing.

Thank you for doing it. I know you'll sleep better knowing you did something to prevent it from happening to another mama!
