I have seen posts saying something like this the past couple of days "My son got all of his stuff stolen and requesting donations" In each case this was the first post for the user. I just wanted to make people aware of that this is probably a scam and to be skeptical. I know there have been other legitimate posts of things being taken, but generally they don't ask people to send things. However is doing this is probably going to wise up and post other things before making their request. Just be wary of anything that feels like a scam.
** Another note now I am seeing some asking for trades on their first thread and while these might be posted with no harm intended, I keep thinking that there might be some poor child scammed into sending an item to someone expecting, but getting, nothing in return. The mods/admins are great about editing, but with the volume of threads they can't always catch the threads like these before at least one person sees them.
yeah, i agree, if people would like to make a donation they can but i think its a little rude to ask for a gift. thats just me i feel terrible for the people who are hacked but people would donate as they plelase
I agree. I am going to flag any of those that see. Those asking for donations should not be allowed on this website. They should go and try to earn the items they lost if that really were the case.
yes, there was one yesterday that didn't say specifically that they were asking for gifts for their child but stated that their child had their account cleared out by a friend and how they hoped that we could "help". this was not a direct plea but what other "help" could the board offer?
i felt bad for the user if indeed this had happened to her child and the wi user was not a newbie but a gift guru but it is still in violation of the policies of the board to ask for, hint at or request items from people except in trade... at least as i understand them.
I agree with the idea of "warning" people. I've seen these threads that say, "You don't have to send things", BUT "Here is the username . . . . ". Be especially wary if they have very few posts. I love that everyone here is so ready and willing to help all the time. That makes me happy.
I do agree i have seen some like that, but i myself have one. NOT for scamming people, but to tell people about an honest story about my daughter Megan who had this happen to her not to long ago. i even said that i was NOT asking for donations. some people have posted that they will give me stuff for free... but i even told themthat it was against the rules. so .. when you say ALL of those threads are for scamming.. you could be wrong.
