To: The scammers (you know who you are)
The only reason I haven't blocked you is so that you could see this post. BOTH of you. I don't usually let things get to me, but when people are being used I can't just not say anything.I will not mention your names, but you know who you are and you BOTH should be ashamed of yourselves for taking advantage of people who trust you. I also wanted to let you both know that I will be giving a warning to the ones that I work with so another one doesn't get scammed as well.
To: My fellow bloggers:
As soon as I do a review/giveaway that very same day these scammers contact them to do one as well. One of the lovely ladies I have worked with agreed. The review was poorly done and the giveaway lasted about 2 days without the item up for review even arriving! 7 comments were made total and 2 of them were from the host of the blog. The "winner" was actually talked about in a prior post. Introducing her and telling people to go to her blog. Next post she is the "winner". A rigged giveaway and poor review doesn't sit well with me at all. BOTH of these people started their blog on the same day (May 20). I know it's the job of the other person to check out the one doing the review, but it's people like this that make it so hard for companies to trust us to do real reviews/giveaways. I have seen some of her friends and a few of you (3)are following her as well. I talked with one of our well respected blogging buddies and she said "Unfortunate there are a lot of blogs out there like those" I had no clue!!! So, this is probably not new to you all but it was to me. Sorry I just had to vent to you all.
