User cheritya335 (Cherity Allen, also known as “Cherry” – email@example.com) is a scammer. I purchased diabetes supplies from her but the supplies never came, neither did a refund for the money I sent her. Not surprisingly, she’s ignored all attempts at contacting her since. I suggest everyone stay far away from her. Obviously running a little scam operation here, preying, of all things, on diabetic people.
I’ve recently been talking to a few different people who have also had the misfortune of dealing with “Cherity Allen”, below are the clues I have gathered so far.
Her accomplice goes by the name of “Rick Allen”. She states her address and contact information as being:
Name: Cherity Allen, also known as “Cherry”
Cherity Allen and Rick Allen
xxx Middle Rd
Conneaut, OH 44030
Phone#: 440-593-3934 (as of now, this is a disconnected number)
I’m leaving the street address blank as the address was most likely bogus and I wouldn’t want an innocent family getting harassed because of posting this online.
I don’t think you can completely eliminate the risk of getting scammed when buying diabetes supplies over the internet, but here are a few ways you can minimize it:
1. call the person who’s offering you supplies for sale to make sure they’re not giving you a bogus number (simple but often overlooked)
2. get their address and look it up on google, if it’s listed for sale on realtor sites or if it’s the address of a supermarket, bowling alley, or vacant lot (as opposed to a residential home or apartment), then they probably gave you a fake address, plus, if they have something to hide, they might try to withhold giving you their address, if they do, take it as a red flag and stay away from them
3. look online for satisfactory reviews of the user trying to sell you supplies (look them up by username, email, real name, whatever info is available to you, use it to do research on them in order to find out if you’re dealing with a scammer or not)
4. ask other established and well known forum members who they have had successful experiences purchasing supplies from, if you can’t find reputable references, then hold off on buying supplies until you can
5. always insist on (don’t just request) a tracking number for your package (all parcel services offer it, usually for less than the cost of a cup of coffee), no tracking number, no deal
If you follow these few simple steps, you can avoid becoming a “victim” to most of the scammers out there and save yourself a lot of time and money in the process.May 21, 2014 at 3:19 am #3815
