I am sorry to have to write this message, but I have been a victim of identity theft. A bee named “beeslove” first tried to scam me on a dress sale; then when I exposed the scam on this site, she threatened to come to my home; and now, she has STOLEN MY EMAIL to try to scam other people….
My email is dmgraz and it is a yahoo account. I am not sure the extent to which my email or anything else is being wrongfully used (I suspect my photos are stolen, too), but I want everyone to be aware of the situation and I REQUEST TO CONTACT ME if you get an email from dmgraz. Unless you and I know each other, the message is not from me.
I have been active on this site on both the discussion boards and the classifieds as I go through this very special and joyous time of my life. I am saddened by this crime and hope others will not be victim to it. Below are links to threads related to this situation if you wish have more history on it. This might just be the tip of the iceberg:

How did they get your email password?

@ Tessemasgirl : No one got my password. My email is being used as a mask for another email account. I am not sure exactly how this is done, but my FI is better at these things, so he is looking into it.
@ daydreamwanderer: Thanks! We are working with yahoo..not sure that it’s possible to literally catch this person and impose any direct legal consequences yet, but I can at least have some protection with my account.
@ ALL: Thanks for you support!!
Now, it’s important to be vigilant and protect ourselves and each other from harm, but just as important is this great time in our lives being brides!! SO, let’s all resume our planning and sharing and celebrating… I don’t want to give this badness anymore of my goodness than it’s already taken 🙂
