[sticky post] [MOD] Moderated posts until further notice.  
Hi everyone,

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!

I think this is a good idea and I think that people that don't have to hide anything don't mind going through the procedure.

Also, I want to say thank you to everybody who wrote me a mail to tell me that it's her and that I should be careful, so I could stop the procedure before I transferred any money. There are always black sheeps in the fandom, but lots of sweet people too! Thanks, minna! <3

Thank you so much for this!

The girl is really shameless...
When I saw her entry this afternoon I was shocked. Like 'Really?? She's still creating new accounts???'
It pisses me off, honestly~

You're a good mod :)

Once again, thank you very much for your effort to make this community as safe as possible.
I'm not an established seller (only posts from time to time) and I really don't mind if it takes few days for my post to be approved and moderated ^^
Better having a safe community where buyers can be at ease (yep, I'm also a buyer, sometimes :p)

Good luck to you and thank you very much for all the effort you put in that community

wow how does she keep doing this?? And you are quick! Good job! ^^

I don't know how she keeps doing this. She's even on eBay now. I don't even know how I always coincidentally see her posts while surfing. It's like it's fated or something. m(_ _)m What stumps me even more is that people are actually bidding on her items. I hope she gets caught and hauled right to the police station.

Yes it's kind of weird that she is able to keep doing this.. makes everyone upset and is unfair for everyone else in the fandom. In Korea even people really get arrested and fined for doing things like this.. I wonder how she is still running free TT

oh so now she's selling magazines as well? that shameless woman. In fact, calling her a woman is an insult to the rest of the ladies in the world...
Quite amazed how she can still go on... does she not have any conscience?
If the police were effective, there shouldn't be any new accounts from her...

thank you for the updates, i hope no one else gets scammed!

there is so much scams and bad things going on in the world.
to make a shop and get good customers and then take there money is discusting.
we have enough to deal with outside the internet, you would think buying online was simple.
some ppl seriously.

i bought from a freind in fb and i got the wrong item and it was broken, i had to then send the item to the right seller.
i waited 2 months for this delivery then another 2 months for the right item. i was not even told if the owner receved the item i got.
i cant deal with people who are not gonna sell or buy properly.
money cant grow on trees.

My god she is a walking pile of douchbaggery. I want to see justice served to this woman so badly.

Thank you for the warning!
