But continuing to make threads to ask people to flip out, or to continue to complain about it isn't helping.
All it does is make members mad. While we care, we have all oferred numerous suggestions, as has admin.
At this point, this is just being a nuisance to the board. Want to contribute to threads, go ahead.. we'd be happy to have you, but numerious ones to complain about being scammed or the scammer are getting old.
Friendly advice - Unless you've started legal proceedings against this gentleman I would be careful about waving his name around the internet with accusations. If he's interested and you don't have sufficient proof to back up what you are saying he could probably sue you for liable (sorry too tired to spell) or deformation of character. I believe Puppyfind has a place where you can rate the seller - go fill it out. But pestering the heck out of the guy isn't going to get him to stop scamming people, and bad mouthing him may get YOU in more trouble. If you've got that big a problem with him - take it up with the BBB, or sue him.
mafiaprincess sorry i am a nusence to you. but being this a web site that sells animals, I would think that crime associated with it would be important. since you speak for everyone, I will stop posting. hope you feel superior.
You are mad that withee and myself want to warn people about the scammers that are posting on your board? Wow, that truly amazes me. I guess I hope now that you or someone you know does get scammed by one of these posters and you get to see how it feels.
I would say that since the $$ is gone to the wind and no puppy was delivered that they are probably safe from legal reprocussions. This frauder does not want to get the police involved to start asking questions, like, why is this person saying this? Did you take the money and not deliver the puppy? As I recall, there were more than enough threads about 'anna's pet shop, and people weren't rude about the excessive threading against her (that I read anyway, but I'm not on 24-7).
The anti anna people did create excessive threads, full of potential libel since none of us on the board can prove the character of these people. All the anna threads were deleted for the same reasons.
We aren't protecting them. We just can't help more than the suggestions that have been made. Complaining that we need to mass email these people isn't a solution.
You all need to learn from this and move on. Most of us wouldn't buy a puppy from someone that we couldn't check out, so it's doubtful anyone I care about will be scammed. But people here present and past have been in your boat. Called the FBI, and often weren't reimburssed. But complaining about it daily here sure didn't fix anything either.
One more time, just so everyone is clear on this point. While MOST posters have no problem understanding, it seems there are still some who do not.
This is the FORUM. It is a DISCUSSION forum and is NOT intended for the use of advertising, flaming, soliciting or any other form of listing individuals, individual's e-mail addresses, phone numbers, addresses, other pet sites, kennels, blogs, etc...
As others have stated, we are all empathetic to those who have been scammed, but the forum is NOT the place to deal with this issue.
Please believe me when I say that from this point on this mod will delete ANY thread that is posted for the sole purpose of ANY of the above mentioned reasons.
I have tried to edit, be supportive and provide explainations which seem to have gone completely unheeded.
If you would like to advise others on what to ask, what to expect, what to be wary of in general terms, GREAT. Otherwise, I will delete the thread and continue to do so each time another appears.
Withee, also again, please send an e-mail to ADMIN to delete the add again! Also as sugessted before, please go to sites such as www.ripoffreports.com to let it be known there. Get a group of you together to design a web site just like the Anti Wizzard Of Claws folks have. Any one who Googles this scammer will come upon your site & you can work from there. It works great!
