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.
We just banned the user justsambam08 from the Horse Forum for taking advantage of several members in our classified area. Something about SamanthaB and justsambam08 sound similar to me. Hopefully the fact that she's been banned from both here and there will mean she'll have a more difficult time taking advantage of anyone in the future.
Speaking of which, we have added feedback functionality to our classified area so that members can leave feedback about their transactions with other members and you can see the feedback members have received, how many trades members have been a party to, etc., before choosing to deal with them. This will help ensure that you only deal with reputable members, and help us determine which members can't hold up their end of a bargain and therefore shouldn't have access to the classified area or to the Horse Forum at all.
With the addition of this feedback mechanism, you should be able to buy, sell, and trade at the Horse Forum with confidence.
