I have no clue about her business, so I think I will contact the BBB to be on the safe side! Great idea!

I hate thieves and that is what this woman is.

Honestly, I thought this was about someone else whose name starts with a K like mine!

I remember the thread about someone getting ripped off and gathering evidence for the police.

What scum!

Ugh! WHy do people do shady stuff like this? I also noticed on her blog that one of her worries is "paying bills." Hmm... interesting. So you scam others so that you can "afford" to go to CHA, Scrapfest, etc.?

I hope enough evidence is put together so that the local police can prosecute her.

We had a local woman do something similar. She was also stealing thousands in product from Archivers, Micheals, Hobby Lobby, Joann's etc. and then selling it to people at crops. Thankfully Archiver's caught her on camera (or something - they had hard evidence) and she was arrested. She had a trunkful of stolen scrapbook supplies with price tags on it. The police were able to tell where she had stolen from by the different price tags

I'm sorry for those of you who have been scammed

She did have an online scrap store that didn't last very long, called Forever Young & Crafty. This was the site: online store

I hate when scammers keep coming back.

I used to be on another SB forum. When I was a newbie I joined a Sister Scrap group. I thought it would be a good way to meet some other scrappers. You got had someone to send goodies to over a month span and someone different sent you goodies. I made sure Canadians were allowed to join first. So that was not the problem. The person who was suppose to send me stuff kept saying she'd do so and never did. We were also told we could send e-mails, e-cards etc. all I got was excuses! Near the end she e-mailed me that she was sending everything all together to save on postage since she was from the USA. I kept in touch with the host the whole time. My lovely "sister" was getting stuff from her "sister". She disappeared soon after that. The person who I had sent stuff to sent me this surprise package! She felt bad for me and was so sweet to do that!

The scammer showed up again and that's when I outed her. I don't know why she thought she could just come back. I think it was a year later. I hadn't changed my name! She had joined a swap of some sort so I thought I'd warn everyone (a good and bad swap name list started soon after). That's when I got some PMs about her scamming others. She really did try to stick around. Didn't work though. It was a small community.

I was also dooped by Shay on her forever young and crafty store. It was last December and she never replied to any of my numerous emails or IG comments! Not a word! I was giving her the benefit of the doubt as it was Xmas season and I know that mail can be really slow. I waited too long to initiate a paypal claim and so I never got my money back. I was so mad when I saw the pics she was posting of her being at CHA...having a great time with my money is what I was thinking. I didn't know that her bad reputation was this extensive. I hope she gets pulled from any DT or guest designer spots she may have. There are plenty of honest, hardworking, talented scrapbookers that would gladly fill her spots. Hopefully, she gets what's coming to her now!

lakesidekb, I agree and that's exactly what I'm working on. I'm contacting every company she is or has ever been affiliated with

OntarioScrapper, good for you! I don't understand how these people can even think that they can just waltz right back in as if nothing ever happened. Really blows my mind

Why don't you guys report her to her local police department as well as for mail fraud?

Oh and when I say i think it is funny, I mean in the way that she seriously does all this crap and thinks we believe it? She has a screw loose or something!!

She is a joke and i get so mad to see her getting away with it.

If you guys have her blog, and this ironic post, why aren't you confronting her head on?

Kindly let her know that you're filling out a police report.

She already knows what I think of her, I was on her SMB team and was very vocal. I am in NZ so nothing I can do here Police wise.

rathercrafty, I HAVE been confronting her head on. If you've read this thread at all you'd know everything I've done. I leave messages on her blog, I've contacted every scrapbooking company she's ever been affiliated with, I've contacted eBay and etsy, and every time she's stupid enough to post on Instagram I call her out. Getting her arrested is a little trickier than what you realize.
