guest designers and affiliates with major scrapbooking companies? I am at a loss for words. I was completely scammed recently along with another group of ladies on instagram. I kept thinking the sellers name sounded familiar. I finally realized I wasn't getting my items and that the seller was on the bad sellers list here on Two Peas. I then remembered the huge post not too long ago on the FSOT about her scamming a ton of people. Her name and bad reputation regarding all of her scams is all over the internet, so I don't understand why in the world these companies want to be associated with her. I just don't get it. I also don't understand why she hasn't been stopped for good since she's been doing it this long. Is there absolutely nothing that can be done?
I also noticed tonight that she deleted all of her instagram posts on both of her accounts since all of these buyers have caught onto what she's doing and were leaving posts on her pictures.

ETA: I filed a dispute with paypal last Monday. I will be getting my money back, but the whole situation just makes me mad and sad at the same time.

I agree.. I really can't understand it either! Number 1 why hasn't PayPal closed her account if there are so many claims against her? That's just out right wrong.. Number 2 if a company would allow her to be apart of a DT and having full knowledge about what she's been doing.. Then they just have to be as bad as her.. Or maybe they really don't know whats going on.. Some company's don't pay much attention to that kinda stuff, but if I was a victim to her then I would deffiantly clue the company In.. Especially if she's ripping people off on purpose and nobody is getting any items from her.

People like that make me absolutly SICK!! And its not right.. Times are hard and people don't have money to just give away! Karma will come her way & I can promise you shell end up losing something ten times more value or worth to her then scrapbook products.. Because that's how it always works! I was recently ripped of from a company.. Go figure right? Unbelievable the messed up part about it is these where pre ordered items so it was way past the days for a PayPal clam and I've sent email after email and no response I'm out of $20 while there still in business selling items to people that they can't even deliver.. It absolutly drives me nuts! I have went to bbb and NOTHING and I don't know if there is anything left to do.. But I its the principle that really gets to me! So I completely understand how you feel and I wish there was something that could be done to STOP these thieves!

I figure she's opened multiple Paypal accounts maybe? I don't know. I'm just guessing. I know the email address linked to her Paypal wasnt her name. Rumor is that she made this big sale to fund her big scrapfest trip this weekend
I'm sorry you were scammed too. It's so very disheartening. I just don't get it.

Just saw this too and I am SHOCKED!!!! when are people going to open their eyes and see her for what she is.

A scammer and a liar.

SSS should be notified, the obviously have not heard about her yet, If it was my company I would not want her near it.

You know what annoys me, she thinks we are all thick! she made a post on her blog saying she has been having a problem with mail because she moved house. Come on girl no one mails that many parcels and has them lost, we know what you are up to.

Karma rocks and she will get hers.

That thread over on the FSOT board has been deleted, which is pretty bad as all it was doing was warning those on the board.

Ya I would defiantly say that sounds fake.. Seriously yes ok there are times that stuff happens a package goes lost but seriously what every package of yours went missing? Yeahhhh ok and I'm Obama lol as far as PayPal goes I'm guessing she probably does use someone else's account! PayPal isn't dumb is you own them money you can't use the account and I'm sure she's negative from all of the claims! What a loser.. I so wanted to post a comment on her blog post too about that "missing box story" lol

What is her affiliation with SSS? I am about to hit the "buy" button on KP's DD but first I want to know what her association with them is. I hate how scrapbookers turn a blind eye to scammers until it gets to the ridiculous level. And that post of hers about lost packages is crazy.
So, is she a guest designer? I can't figure it out. Either way I'm not buying until I know they are rid of her.

It is crazy. Didn't she work for Archivers for a while?

Every so often she will post at SC and someone will post afterwards saying they haven't received xxx or yyy.

It looks like she is an affiliate for SSS. You click through on the links and purchase and she gets $. Similar to what some people have with Amazon.

I don't see how she hasn't been arrested or something yet. Makes me so mad!!!

I've never deal with this person, so I can't speak to this issue.

BUT, I DO want to say that it is possible to have a PayPal account in name different from your own -- and for a valid reason! My PayPal account that I use is in my husband's name (we have different last names, too, so prob looks totally sketchy to a lot of people). Years and years ago when PayPal first opened, I started an account with my name/email and credit card information. Something happened and I was locked out and I was never able to recover that account (it was so long ago I don't even remember what it was, maybe my CC/account was compromised? But whatever it was, I had since moved/changed information and couldn't be bothered to go to the cost and work of doing what was needed to straighten it all out). So now I can't use a credit card in my own name/mailing address or my own email for a PayPal account. So we had to open a PayPal account with DH's information.

Anyway, having a PayPal account in another name doesn't have to be as sketchy as it looks. It could be something as simple as a decade-old, unresolvable problem with an original account.

biochemipea, I completely understand your reasoning but she's a thief. No way around it. She's been doing this too long. If I didn't know she was a thief the Paypal info wouldn't even concern me. Lots of people use their husband's account. She can't use her own because Paypal keeps going after her for money There's a big difference!

As I said, I don't know her and am not making any judgements. I just wanted to speak to the point about the PayPal name. That's it.

She did work in Archivers, she told us she was a store manager. Anyway one of the ladies on the FSOT thread actually contacted them as she was a local and had been scammed, the HR department or something contacted her and said that Shay had been 'let go' and that she had never been a store manager in the first place, but a shift manager. Also when this lady told her about the scamming, she kind of laughed and said that does not surprise me.

Also this lady has been in talks with her local police station, she is just trying to get enough evidence together.

Before I knew all about her history, I did buy an SC card kit from her. This was maybe 4 months ago or so, I can't remember. I did get the kit in good condition. Just wanted to throw that out there But it seems like a lot of people have had bad experiences. And she deleted all photos from her IG feeds, both her personal and her stash sale account.

I don't have an dealings with this person, but I was just talking with a coworker today about how there will always be people who will see an opportunity to take advantage of people. If they get caught and are stopped, they find another way around to continue.

I suppose it's greed that drives it, but it's amazing that these people have no conscience and are able to justify and rationalize what they are doing. I really hope that there really is karma. Sometimes it feels like the "bad guys" always win.

It makes me sad.

I'm one of the people who have been scammed by her recently and I'm so mad that she's affiliated with all these companies too. caribbeangirl how did you contact SSS and OA? I want to too. I remember she posted photos with Echo Park and Chic Tags at the last CHA so I don't know if she's affiliated with them too. Grr!!!

I'm sorry you got scammed.

Does she actually own a small business, or is her 'business' a scam too? If not I would also report her to the BBB.

What is SSS?
