(S)he is hitting other forums, too (and I already posted a thread about it there the first time it happened, and just today bumped it with warning of her return)

It's too coincidental -- same MO as is being used right now.

Pics won't necessarily help unless they're analyzed carefully; anyone can pull pics off the 'net, so you'd have to look carefully to make sure they were all taken in the same place, from the same camera (i.e. same or similar resolutions)

I asked for a pic with an Item that I would request (IE a fork or something) so I know they just took the photo..where are you going to find a pic of the game with a fork?...well i guess you never know..Also another way is to request a pick of the game with a current newspaper in the photo where the date is seen. Me not that wet behind the ears :wink:

Yeah, I totally got ripped off for $20 from this bitch/asshole.

This was several months ago. At least it wasn't a lot.
