Fraud Alert--Please Read--Please Cross Post
I just wanted to take a moment to give you an update on the fraud alert I posted here in October...
Due to hard work and dedication by several Equine Freecycle Members and becuase of feedback from several of you off-list about similiar situations, as far as I can ascertain, all members who were initially defrauded have received all of their money back from the woman in question. It took a great deal of time and dedication but, I am happy to report, mission accomplished.
PayPal has issued a decision in my favor for this case.
"After careful review, we have concluded our investigation of the BuyerComplaint described below.We have decided in your favor, however, we were unable to recover any fundsfrom the seller's account. As stated in the PayPal User Agreement, recoveryof funds associated with a Buyer Complaint cannot be guaranteed."
I am writing today with a heavy heart to warn you about an Internet Scammer.
I run the Equine Freecycle Network http://sports.groups.yahoo.com/group/equinefreecyclenetwork/ (copied on this message), a group designed to allow horse people to help each other by trading items and paying only for actual shipping fees. Please feel free to take a look at the site for the entire description. Recently, we were the victims of fraud because a member chose to offer several items, took our money for shipping via PayPal, and never sent the items. It was later discovered that several of us paid for the same items. So far, 10 members have reported being victims and I believe there could be more. I have done some checking online and I believe this is happening on other lists and groups.
Please beware of this person. Here is the information we were able to figure out. I did some Google searching and have seen this person lurking around other sites (see below). If anyone knows anything that will help us, we would truly appreciate your assistance. Please consider passing this along to your lists. We have contacted PayPal and our banks.
