As some of you have noticed (and PM'ed me because this occurred while I was asleep, thank you!), the serial scammer valeriechew has struck again and posted with a new journal, shojun_123. For those who are new to the community or the things going on lately, please read this post and this post for further information.
Due to the fact that she is continuing to create new accounts and even possibly bringing her friends into the scheme, I have decided to put this community on moderation until further notice in order to make sure something like this does not happen again, as I know several of you have already commented on her post. (I've sent out PMs but hopefully I've caught you guys in time before you completed your transactions!) If you would like proof that shojun_123 is related to valeriechew, feel free to PM me and I will gladly explain why.
In the meantime, here are the basic points to my post:
- Membership is still open so anyone can join this community.
- If you are an established seller, I will give you unmoderated posting access the next time you make a post so you will only have to undergo moderation once.
- If you are a new seller, I'm sorry but this means it may take longer for your post to be approved and you may be rejected if there are grounds for suspicion that you are related in any way to valeriechew. Send me a PM if you would like to know why your post was rejected and I would be more than happy to provide explanations; you are also more than welcome to provide proof that you are a legitimate seller yourself.
- Please note that the three-strike warning system still applies to all posters, so make sure you've read the rules of this community before posting!
I'm going to stick this post to the front page for the time being. If you have any questions or comments, you're more than welcome to comment here. Thank you!
