Hyena Cart Store Selling Diapers Donated to CDF

If this is not the appropriate forum for this, please let me know where to move it to. I am not listing names at this time.. but think the word needs to get out because I feel this is wrong on so many levels.

There is a Hyena Cart store that opened a few months ago. They claim to buy lots of diapers from eBay, Craigslist and resell at very discounted prices to help families afford cloth diapering.

There was listing for several very popular diaper covers. Once the seller realized how sought after they were she pulled all the listings and changed all of them to auctions. If she over sells something, she will refund everyone and re-list later in auction format. Several people have asked her if she donates the proceeds of the auctions to Charity and she has said No.

But that's not the worst part. Several people have her Paypal name now, and a simple google search will show you that she used to run the Cloth Diaper Foundation before it shut down. I have spoken with some of the owners of the brands of diapers that this business sells and have confirmed that the diapers that the Hyena Cart store sells are indeed old diapers that were once donated to CDF.

I know legally there's not much that can be done. But morally I feel so strongly that this is so wrong. She has links all over her page asking for donations. She has no interest in helping families in need, her only interest is making money.

Does anyone know anything that can be done??

I don't have any advice for you, but that seems really wrong to do!

I have contacted HC, hopefully they can do something. I would hate for any more people to donate to this seller only to have her turn around and line her pockets.

So, she is still accepting donations and turning them for a profit?

Yes! She has it posted all over her HC store and Facebook page requesting donations. Not to mention the hundreds of diapers that big businesses donated to CDF with the intent of helping families. Her auctions of some very popular items have passed $100 dollars.

pass me the email addy through pm if you would.

I'll run it to see if she is on here. Not much I can do about what happens on another site but I will be sure she has no ability to sell on here.
