Hello all,

You may or may not have read here that babalina58 (the organizer of this swap) received a PM allegedly from the husband of a participant in this swap that his wife was killed in a car accident and he was letting babalina58 know that obviously she couldn't complete her end of the swap.

We were so shaken by this sad news about this member that we dug into her account a bit to see if there was anything we could do to help her family. I don't want to write a whole novel here about what we discovered but we realized pretty quickly that this member had multiple accounts on Craftster and flaked on multiple swaps in the past. There was a good deal of deception going on in these accounts but it was also very easy for us to piece together that it was all the same person.

So of course we can't know for sure if the tragic story about this member's death is false or not but it doesn't seem crazy to assume that she has concocted this story as an excuse for why she could not finish this swap. We couldn't find any evidence of her passing away but instead we found lots of evidence of deception which just makes this a very suspicious situation.

It's with much hesitation that we bring up any suspicion about this. We don't know for sure whether this member passed away or not. Normally we would never think to question something like this.

We just wanted to let you all know all of this so, for example, you don't get into any situation where you are going and back and forth with her "husband" in case he is not really her husband.

Please don't discuss this situation on the threads.  Feel free to PM me or open a Help Desk ticket, if you would like to discuss further.

Thank you for listening.

- Leah

My heart has been heavy about the possible terrible loss that a little girl & husband may have had to endure here.  Undecided

If things hadn't turned out the way they did...then I wouldn't have hooked up with such a great angel & new friend Elvissatx! So look on the bright side!  Grin

Nobody likes feeling as if they were taken advantage of. I wish the 'husband' or whomever had at least acknowledged receipt of my package...and said thank you...that is just common courtesy, however if indeed a family tragedy has taken place...I'm willing to overlook it.

As I said before, I hope the little girl got her blanket & hope it brings her comfort and joy. No hard feelings!  Smiley I'm fine with it really, and thank you Leah for the update & digging into this further...glad to know you're looking out for us!

Hi ladies,

I hate to drag up old threads but I felt you deserved to have this information. Our suspicions about cotsmommy fabricating her death were correct.  She created a new account, krystlepistol, and was swapping again.  We have taken her actions and deceit very seriously and have completely banned her from Craftster.  If you would like to discuss this further, for whatever reason, please feel free to open a Help Desk ticket.
