Seller Beware


I read about an internet scam on Etsy today where several Etsy seller's items were listed for sale without their knowlege or permission. the thread is here. the store is called o-handbag. It takes more and more effort to be internet savy and avoid being victimized by criminals. please read the thread and be alert for this type of activity. A great tool to have is the google alert. Use words unique to you and your shop. That is how this store was discovered.I was just testing the ohandbag link and at this time it no longer works. hmmmmmm Hopefully it is shut down for good. I still had this site up and I printed this and scanned it for evidence.
