    Erm at a wild guess, the whole linking to different peoples fb profiles and posting pictures of peoples houses and cars.

    Nothing wrong with raising awareness and making people vigilant.

    Linking to random peoples houses, addresses and FB pages is stupid though as she has given out what at least 10 names and several addresses? Just be careful it's reminds me horribly of the time a pediatrician was attacked at his home as someone got the wrong end of the stick. Randomly lych mobbing peoples names is not wise as people can get the wrong end of the stick. She has given out so many not all of them can be her.

    Could the posts not just been deleted. The people also weren't random. They were addresses\facebook acoounts of people who had been sent items and never paid up.

    There were so many names being thrown around on there, they can't all be her. How would you feel if someone used you name to commit a crime and people started linking in your house/address/fb potentially speculating when you were inncoent, then going through your friends lists stalking them.

    People were even bring up friends of friends to perv on, it was bang out of order.

    Just to confirm. It was an American fitness instructor who has a youtube account of her fitness regimes. Nothing to do with facebook or any relation to the scammer, but a twitter follower of a person by the name katlou1.

    They CAN'T all be the same person can they, what is so hard for you to understand? Obviously the mods get that and are on the case. You can't just name people, link to all their personal details in writing on the net when you don't know it's them, and speculationg, and it's a case of mistaken/stolen identity. The consequences could be huge.

    So drop the pitchfork and use some common sense as has been suggested the people scammed should set up a private group somewhere.

    Yes, but at the time when i was composing my original post that you took offense to this was not there. To summarise my argument from the beginning was that unlike you i felt that only the offending posts should be removed and not the whole thread. And that these people weren't random, but where either linked to the scammer directly, friends or people in the surrounding area.

    Si mentioned nothing about tighting your threads, thought that was little much as your clamps might be a little soft.

    threads that advertise personal information are pulled for clean up, i am guessing there was more than one post so needed pulling as soon as, the longer its left up the more damage can be done, after tidy up it will be put back, dont see what the problem is, remembering posts are viewed by thousands, and who knows what odd jobs view them and what they are capable of, just stik your mobile number in a thread and see what sort of spam you get

    I also felt that you were overly simplifying the issue and not providing the full information: you seemed to be of the opinion that it couldn't be a group of people scamminng,

    I wished to comment that the likely hood of the people being random was small due to all of the names that had been used in the scams could be related to a group of friends in a small Scottish town. A town to which people had posted items to. I am not saying these people did it, but they may provide a key to who the perpetrator is.


    I did not condone the posting of facebook accounts,

    Could the posts not just been deleted.

    OMFG, I did not want the thread pulled, I reported it so mods could pull all the posts, of peoples fb accounts, posts of their friends and pictures of peoples houses and cars. It was getting way out of hand, not all of these people can be the scammer, read ASB's posts in the thread itself the naming and shaming of potentially inncoent people was going too far.

    The thread in itself was a good idea to link ideas NOT to stalk and lynch innocent people that you cannot prover otherwise. Mods agreed .Get a grip.
