    I received a trade request on Pinpics yesterday. It was a decent request that I responded to - just to start the process.

    Today, I got a message from Linda (peachyshades) at Pinpics. The person I have been negotiating with is a known scammer. She sent me all of her bogus accounts/names.

    I don't think I can post the names on here. If you want the names, PM me.

    Just trying to pass the word around.

    I got something 2 weeks ago that I raised my eyebrow at (super rare pins). I asked them to wait (because I was sick that week), but when I went back to check their Pinpics account again, it was gone.

    So it looks like it might be going around.

    Make sure you check the person's account, darlings. If they have nothing but grails, or have ALL of the grails for trade, it's a pretty big flag. Some people do make grail-only accounts, so I don't want to say it makes them a scammer, for sure. But if you've never seen the name before, and the account is suspicious...just be careful.

    Have you looked at this thread... started by pinpics ambassador/peachyshades? Is your scammer identified?

    Mine is. Glad I was sick that week and they got weeded out...

    It's weird that they replied to me at all, tbh.
