Wish we had a LIKE button! I am reasonably certain this is what Kaisa is requesting.

Now that you point that out, I bet you are right. My mistake!

Still, it is difficult to decipher some of her posts and then she deletes them.

I wish she had not deleted her posts. I understand it can be hard to trade nowadays, especially for VFers overseas, but I think she would have had some interest if she kept her list up longer. I mean, not for streaming, but maybe for the dvds she was looking for. She just needed to revise her list to remove streaming content, if that was on her exchange list. The exchange list is also gone.

Sounds as though they were just hoping to exploit the gullible.

The fact that their efforts at communication have been so minimal, and they've apparently tried to delete all their posts makes me doubt their sincerity.

The wounded soul persona? Hmmm ... .

You could be right too . I hope not, but re-reading the quotes of hers that remain....

The kindness and generosity I have received over decades on VF has been almost overwhelming at times. The thought that someone might want to exploit that kindness really chaps my hide.

I have become even more paranoid after a dear friend was scammed out of over $80,000 of her savings by an internet romance scam. She never even met this guy but sent him money anyway.

You just can't be too careful anymore. If someone is legit, they have to follow the rules. If you are told the rules, then follow them. And, if you don't like the rules, don't fricken whine about it!

I naively got scammed in the early days of my VF experience. I sent off a trade and got nothing in return. When I mentioned it here, many people very kindly offered to send me something else, or the one I "traded", etc. So nice! I still remember that, and honestly, whenever someone else has come along and seems like a scammer, I wonder if it's the same person who got me all those years ago. I think the person in question used a few varieties on the name "Kat", if I remember correctly, so it's perhaps not that far fetched, but also could be complete coincidence. And, it may even be that I'm remembering incorrectly but I don't think so.
