    I made it quite clear on many occassions that something didnt add up but it didnt matter as she wasnt an advertising member so people shouldnt have needed warning off.

    the question is would anybody have believed it? everybody was so caught up in the emily hype, when anybody dared to say anything bad about her, there would be dozens of forum members on your back, this happened to me a few times which i refused to back down from, did not stop forum members backing emily to the hilt and i have seen others this happened to, just because you say something doesnt mean it will be believed by those with emily tinted glasses.

    I think Nicky met up with her, i doubt she would have gone into business if she had turned out to be a bloke.

    Well quite a few people (including some very well-respected members) weren't sure of her authenticity, so surely they wouldn't have had to fight their corner alone...

    Also, there was nothing to stop them contacting Anthony or any of the other mods privately.

    tbh I would keep that to myself, what I could tell you guys is that it wasnt that much I put out £ & that it was for XBOX 360 Games.

    I was not prepared to put in alot untill I am satisfied with the result.

    Because its benefit of the doubt isnt it. If everybody did that straight away nobody would buy anything. You cant just post something saying that you think shes a con artist or you would get banned or have a warning. The people who didnt have anything to do with her have shown they didnt trust her.

    What I am surprised is how did people pay for there order of goods ? If you paid by CC Paypal or Google Checkout your all covered.

    I had questioned her attitude and morals a number of times, with the chit chat/social networking she seemed to use the forum for and about the big thread on how to get around eBay and Paypal suspensions!

    A lot of the times my posts were deleted or threads closed but I had definitely mentioned it openly in threads, but as I said previously.. it wouldnt have been a problem if members didnt deal with non advertising members!

    I think its unfair to think that way, personally I did not care what they look like. Look at yourselfs you don't need to post a picture of your face to have a good business, but she may have used it to attract others.

    Spot on! (happy birthday emily` reaching 700 views it was obvious) I guess you all wanted to meet the pretty girl in the office. Most of them get fired in the first three months anyway.
