    Person here with the profile name Cecilia Melin is a scam artist.

    She sends private messages asking you to purchase a product online to help her family, and then she will reimburse you for the product cost through PayPal.

    I'm sure no one is stupid enough to fall for her scam. The purpose of this post is to give site administrators a heads-up to get this scammer off the forum.

    Thanks for letting me know about this - I'll block them from the site now. :)

    If anything like this happens in the future, if you could please click the "report" button that appears at the bottom of every post or private message, as it'll alert my phone and I can take action asap.

    It always amazes me that people can be so dishonest. They'd rather find easy money rather than get a job and a life.
