Eni should be able to block her from downloading any more tutorials. Also,if anyone is using E-junkie, you can block by name and by email address.

Eni should be able to tell you how it was paid for.

Can someone please PM me the phone number of the investigating detective?

If she does do the chargeback, Eni will block her from the site. I'll wait a bit and then email Eni and ask her what the update is and whether she'll share the information.

Even if she doesn't do a chargeback, I think it is shameful that this woman is still purchasing things without paying back the rest of the lampworking community. I'll bet she thinks she has moved on to scamming the jewelry community.

Well if Eni waits to block her until she starts doing charge backs it will be too late. Her MO is to buy a bunch of stuff over a week or so period and then a couple weeks later, start doing charge backs.

Yes indeed. I agree. Eni prefers to trust that she won't charge back, though.

I'm going to bump this.

That women has a problem -- it takes time and a whole lot of practice with glass or wire or beads. Yet she is manically buying tutorials. . . .

Get the word out --

And yet again PayPal has another glaring weak link -- exploited by this creep. When is PayPal going to clean up their act?

This really sucks! Who is she? What do we know about her to date? I've always trusted PayPal. I thought they protected both the buyer and the seller. I guess when push comes to shove, I was wrong!

This was quite the saga. Her name was Cheryl Curran and she was actually charged with the theft and found guilty. I don't remember how many any more, but I think there were over 20 people that were stolen from and about 10 that went forward with charges against her.

Here is the scenearo super, super short version.

Someone posted in the bathroom that someone had stolen a tutorial from her. That opened pandora's box and turned out a lot of us were going through the same thing.

We tried calling the police down where she lives and we were getting the run around that their wasn't much they could do because of us not being in her state.

Come to find out? The sherrif we were talking to was her son. Yes, her son.

So I personally called the county sherrif down there and he took down all the info and fully understood how sensitive this was. Well, bless him, he drove right over to her house and knocked on her door.

Well, he was really surprised that right there, in her living room was boxes full of our stuff. She confessed right there and he took everything that was visible in site.

She was charged and found guilty.

Short version.

I thought this whole thing (names, targets, MO, etc.) sounded familiar.

She has been around awhile...exploiting good people and stealing from many.

What a low-life.

She's still on Etsy. A couple of years after this whole deal, she purchased a tutorial from me on Etsy. Since the good folks on LE had already brought this up, I didn't send her a tutorial and instead just refunded her cash to her credit card. Paypal immediately refunded, but her credit card company took abut a week to post it. By then she'd already sent me a threat to SUE ME since she said I'd kept her money and not sent her a tutorial. Even an email from Paypal with the refund confirmation information didn't stop her from going all rabid on me.

Etsy not only stayed out of it, but then sent me a note that started "Dear Cheryl..."

A few weeks after that, there was a big to-do about her here and she came online and played victim. She even got me involved. She said she'd purchased stuff from me and got everything okay. That was from Eni's jewelrylessons.com site, which automatically downloads and I'm quite sure she did a chargeback from Eni.

Anyhow, she's recently favorited a couple more of my items on Etsy.

No jail time but she had to pay restitution and she got probation. I don't remember how long that was, couple years maybe? Also, her son did end up resigning his position, but we have no idea if there was any relation to this at all.

Well, if you read the article linked in post #18, it seems Cheryl's sheriff son and his wife also had a bad habit of not paying their debts, either. Dead-beatery must run in the family.
