@GreenEyedMoon:  That’s insane. How did you give her the $, paypal or cash? Can everyone dispute the transactions if paid with paypal?

Oh, wow, that’s horrible.  I’ve also heard of people faking an illness like cancer to get money falsely.  I believe in karma so they’ll eventually get what’s coming to them.

I’m so, so sorry that happened to you and your friend!  Very sad and appalling that someone would do that. 

Have you or anyone who knows the thief considered confronting her?  Or maybe calling the police to see if there’s a way to press charges against her?

Wow. I can’t believe the things some people do sometimes. I agree with Sunfure though, anyway anyone can press charges or something?

You might want to think about filing a police report – it’s fraud. The group is presumably still viewable on FB, so there is evidence she was collecting money for this purpose, and those of you who paid through Paypal or a personal cheque will have proof of funds paid to her. Honestly, I would file a report.

Report her to the police. 

ETA:  And print everything you can from your computer off of facebook or whatever before it gets deleted to use as proof.

@GreenEyedMoon:  Wow, I hope that with some pressure from those who donated will come clean and get the ring!  That is awful.

🙁 That’s pretty cold-hearted.  I hope there is a way everyone can come together and solve this.

That is awful.  I also vote for reporting her to the police.  Like PP said, make sure to print everything you can about it as soon as possible.  This girl will probably cough up the money once she finds out the police are involved.

@GreenEyedMoon:  Call the police and say you’d like to report a theft and fraud.  They’ll take it from there.  Make as many copies of evidence and gather as many witnesses as possible.

Or the victim could take her to small claims court to get the money back, as well.  If everyone knows what happened this person is eventually going to have to pay the money back to those she stole it from.  Please don’t let her get away with this.  She’s counting on that.  Doubtful this is her first scam. 

Thought:  She may already have a criminal record and could get put in jail over this as well as having to pay restitution.  This could give you leverage against her to pressure her into giving the money back so as not to face maximum punishment; maybe she’s on probation – if you’re lucky.

Are you in Texas?  I’m assuming so because it says Dallas next to your name.  If so, here’s the penal law:

http://www.statutes.legis.state.tx.us/Docs/PE/htm/PE.31.htm

(1)  “Deception” means:

(E)  promising performance that is likely to affect the judgment of another in the transaction and that the actor does not intend to perform or knows will not be performed, except that failure to perform the promise in issue without other evidence of intent or knowledge is not sufficient proof that the actor did not intend to perform or knew the promise would not be performed.
