Folks can we please keep this thread as civil as possible?  There's a perfectly good reason Sheila didn't want to name and shame the individual and that's because she doesn't want to leave herself open to being sued by that person. Please don't try forcing the information out of those  who are in the know.  Please just have a bit of trust in Sheila's warning.  She's given the individual's sob story very clearly, that should be sufficient.

I think it is very important that everyone understand that ANYTHING you say in public is different when you take on a society job or similar.

That is because it has actually happened that people got sued and as a board member, trustee or whatever judges look at you differently.

overnight you are not allowed to express an opinion you could give just a day before you accepted because judges consider you to have influence on people and thus your opnion carries weight that could damage the "interests" of people disproportional.

For instance: anyone can say internet company X sucks, but the risk of you getting sued is much smaller if Sheila, Dennis or say myself say so because we are considered to have influence... so in general we are very carefull, we want proof we can take to court and win before actually making detailled statements (one reason why so many scum is still around, not enough hard evidence to risk having to go to court) and at the very least we state that something is a personal opinion and not a society statement.

Some countries are worse than others but we need to be carefull, this is for instance a reason why the ICPS doesn't have a bad sellers list or even an approved sellers list (because we could be forced to motivate why we don't add a certain party).

I really do understand Dimitar's feelings about this but as others have said the culprit in this case can be looked up easily enough.

Marcel has made it clear why someone might not want to 'name and shame'.

The format of the scam is fairly clear and due warning has been given.

I don't think there is much more to be said on this so I'm locking the thread and we can move onto more productive things!
