COMMUNITY: Known Scammer Resurfaces!

Extra! Extra! Read all about it!

No, but in all seriousness, please read this if you buy, sell, or trade in this community!

A few weeks ago, I received information from a reliable source that dleocloir_a was the same person as chibiechibbiusa, or, as some of you may remember her, Mabet. However, I do not like to jump to conclusions nor accuse people unfairly, and so I looked into the matter a bit more to help me decide which course of action to take.

In investigating further, and through help of various community members, I have come to the decision that dleocloir_a is Mabet, and that la_t_h is either her pretending to be a group of eight people or is an actual group associated with her. In either instance, we cannot allow these accounts to continue to buy, sell, or trade in this community.

dleocloir_a and la_t_h are banned from this community.

I encourage you all to be wary of trading with these accounts even outside of this community. Unfortunately, the last time Mabet scammed this community, she reported everyone who listed any kind of personal information on her to lj-abuse. For this reason, I cannot divulge Mabet's real name or address. I wish I could so that you would know if you were dealing with her, but I cannot. So please, be careful with whom you buy, sell, or trade!

I will leave this post open to comments in case anyone has any questions or concerns or wants to share evidence. Please DO NOT share personal information, either yours or Mabet's!

EDIT:
miyu_sakura has made a very good point in noting that a number of community members may not know anything about the Mabet scandel from last year.

Mabet was a well known member of the community who was quite active. She bought, sold, and traded a great deal, and she also posted pictures and questions. She commented frequently and everyone knew who she was. At that time she went by the name chibiechibbiusa.

No one ever thought that she would do anything bad, but it was suspicious how she could afford so very many brand name items and expensive commissions. She ended out reversing charges to about 17 sellers. She also never paid for hundreds of dollars worth of items from Celga. She claimed that she had reported fraudulent charges on her PayPal account, and she said that PayPal just reversed the charges on everything for the past month or so. However, paypal never returned the money to any of the sellers, nor did Mabet. She also made the error of posting pictures of herself in items she had claimed she never received or reversed charges on. All of these people who she initiated chargebacks on suffered financial damage. Tracking numbers didn't help anyone. Paypal usually sides on the side of the buyer, and this was no exception.
