Warning - Weird Stuff going on
Just a heads up. Someone who uses this forum used pictures I posted of my Bates saddle to attempt to sell a non-existent saddle on another website. She stole $500 from someone on the other site who thought she was buying my saddle. I have no idea who this person is, but just wanted to warn everyone to be very careful about sending money to people who might not be on the level. The scammer's user name was SamanthaB on the other site. She has been banned from there, but might turn up here since she obviously has been here before.

Wow , are you able to tell which website it was?
That is insane!

I lost close to $100 on a saddle from someone from this forum...of course they only joined for a month or two and hasn't been back (that I know of). I try to be very careful from now on. I won't do business with someone that hasn't been on here for over a year or find someone that is willing to vouch for them otherwise.

I think it was It was just so weird. Someone PM'd me here over the weekend asking about the saddle. I told her she had the wrong person because I wasn't currently negotiating with anyone on my saddle. She asked me if I was the SamanthaB person which tells me that somehow the person not only took my pics but somehow linked into my email too. That's not TOO unnerving for me. I'm in the process of changing all my passwords just to be safe.

Wierd. I'm going to let the other mods know about this. Not sure what if anything can be done but....

That sucks. Who does that??

MyBoyPuck - that is horrible, disgusting, low and makes me want to reach through the computer screen and strangle the person who did this!

It makes it very difficult for people like me, who is honest about my products, to sell my products when people like this make others feel like they can't trust people online. Very frustrating.

I am glad you found out though, I hope you can pinpoint the dishonest, greedy, fraudulant person soon before they scam anyone!
