Nov 11:
Arena ID:  Gizmo85 (ebay ID : 123deanadams 
 Went MIA on swaps claiming she was ill and then too embarrassed to make things right.

 June 11:
Arena ID:  WinglessAngel 
 This member traded ponies that were not as described, harrassed other members via PM/email and was also low-balling.

 April 11:
Arena ID :   TinyShinyUnique
 Went MIA in the middle of sales and trades. Still no contact, and still owes ponies . see thread here
 April 11:
Arena ID:  Dalahast
 Member owes ponies/refunds. After briefly returning to the Arena from a long absence and selling a number of ponies, she stopped communicating/responding to PM's and emails.

Arena ID: Northernlights/Kairi/Lacrimosa/Osterreich
 Member created multiple accounts to avoid outstanding transactions
 Dec 10:
Arena ID: Bizcocho
 Member owes Spanish piggy clothes, refused to provide proof of shipping, or a refund. When questioned or asked for help or proof of shipping she ignored her buyer,  and later she became very rude and un-coperative. After refusing to resolve this issue, she again tried to sell more items to the community. she doesnt feel any responsibility towards buyers.
 Sept 10: 
Arena ID: ani_lhuna
 Member owes a nirvana pony that she double sold. No response to multiple attempts at communication.

 April 10: 
Arena ID's: Babysugarberry81, Dutchbabycat, tafbabyapplejack
 Ebay ID's associated: cbaker22681, threecats1981

 August 09:
Arena ID: Lars110458
 Ebay ID's associated: lbenton2004, scarret2006, fishyfish50, brinkley5050, latina57
 This member was found to have shill bid on his own Colombian pony auction.
 April 09:
 This member entered into multiple trades then failed to send out her end and became uncontactable. After investigation it was determined that she engaged in this pattern elsewhere on the internet. Ebay ID: militza_84
 Feb 09:
 One problematic sale attempt after another involving high value Nirvana ponies.
 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:
 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.
 Feb 09 Items have now arrived, however not complete. Still little or no contact.
 Jan 09:
Arena ID:Hollybeary
Ebay ID: Hollybearyhopper/figart
UPDATE AUGUST 2013: She is now selling ponies via this site:

 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:
 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.
 Arena ID:mylittleponylover

Bad Traders List from old Arena 2003~2008

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!
lolipouxi 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 high 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!

Handy Tool for use with Ebay accounts to search for Negs/Neutrals/Withdrawn feedback.

Please if you spot a bad trader or suspect any suspicious activity, contact a Mod immediately. If people do not speak out about bad trades/buys/sales that they have encountered, it can very well happen again, so make sure to let people know!
