Safer Trading in the MLP Community Starts Here!
 This is a list of the more recent scammers, chronically slow shippers, and otherwise troublesome traders found in the community.

 Helpful Tools:
 The Bad Trader Report is a fabulous spreadsheet done by lovesbabysquirmy which shows the people she has spotted creating problems in the community, an extraordinarily handy tool!
 NB: You must have a Google account and be signed in to view the file.
 Toolhaus Feedback Filter for use with Ebay accounts to search for Negs/Neutrals/Withdrawn feedback.
 2007 / first half of 2008 thread HERE
 2003 through 2006 that lists scammers and a watch list HERE

 Direct Email Scammer:
 Dario (or anyone else!) Cardenas
 This is a scammer who claims to have rare Piggy ponies and such, and asks for Western Union payment. This is a known scam!

 Problems on Ebay:
  Has listed and accepted payment on the same item multiple times and has been known to misrepresent ponies in listed descriptions. Refunds have been known to have been made, but only after some unpleasant communications.

 confirmed longtime scammer Brooke Kutik. Stole from the pony community and is now selling those ponies on ebay. Is currently selling the same pony mulitple times under these 2 ID's
 Callippekisses/farmercrooks (also had many previous ID's such as Wishuponapony, Precious Papoose nursary, mookies little lambs nursary)  * ETA she's now back on ebay  under the ID of tigereyez75  (shop = Countrykitch) , and on Etsy as Vintagetoyexpo *
 Buyer /seller on ebay, she frequently changes ID name, and she does have an Arena account too, but she is not active here - there have been a number of issues with her trading practises.  Ebay account now gone NARU, due to feedback/trading issues. More info can be found here:
 queroponei, skidoodle, raou, rluiz, sellcollector, winterpilow, licensestuffs, 4speed-lucky2005, MLPFUNCLUB, raoul, raul r, Raul2808
 Ten shades of trouble on ebay!! Block all these names, he'll get your pony and then file with Paypal anyway, and beware of anyone from Brazil with a name even vaguely like Raul. Known scammer, nasty communication.
 Never shipped items paid for.
 th3lastun1c0rn / th3m1stressp0key
 This Ebayer is rampantly bidding and then not paying / contesting invoices, generally arguing with sellers.
 More recently this person has been spotted selling!
 Impatient International buyer. Filed a claim shortly after paying, never contacted the seller, and the seller has proof of shipping but not what Paypal would accept.
 Problematic seller and buyer.
 technologicgirl/Brook Kutik
 She buys hugh priced items and then files a paypal claim or credit card chargeback on the seller, leaving her with your money AND your pony. She is an old time scammer who has recently re-surfaced!

 Feb 09 Ponyinoz
 One problematic sale attempt after another involving high value Nirvana ponies.
 Jan09 tastefultragedy
 This member seems to have gotten behind in sales and trades and was "too embarrassed" to come back and fix it or refund people.
 Jan 09 SapphireMorningGlory
 She's sent under-value swaps a couple times now, and has now had more problems shipping out things that were paid for. She owes a fair amount of money and ponies to people and ignores all attempts at communication.

 Jan 09 Arena ID:Hollybeary
 Ebay ID: Hollybearyhopper/figart

 She owes money and ponies to people, and keeps trying to resurface to sell things. Scary ebay feedback on her previous acct. caused her to start a fresh one, figart, and she continues to sell on ebay.
 Jan 09 MLPcollector_Lea
 This member has a habit of selling MOC ponies and taking months to ship. She has recently left members hanging with no communication and no ponies. She pops up every so often to sell a bunch of stuff and it seems problems happen every single time. She has always rectified it until now, although it frequently took a Paypal dispute to get her to ship the items. As at April 2010, items remain owed to a value of approx. $150.
 Somewhat older but still worth watching out for:
 Arena ID: Fnokker
 Never sent parcels from trades, could not provide proof of shipping.
  Arena ID: Sabrea
 This member sold a MIB set that turned out to have no pony inside, a refund had to be forced by the staff here as the seller seemed to think it was the buyer's problem. She is still a member here as she did finally give a refund, but please trade with caution. ETA: Pretended to be one of her buyers to a Moderator via email.

I hope it's ok to post as a reply to this!

Update on Hollybeary aka Hollybearyhopper:
She is now selling ponies via this site:

A new group recently popped up on Facebook for people to buy & sell ponies. I saw this person posting about her ponies for sale & knew her name was familiar as her real name is very similar to her ID previous ID.
