HERE ARE SOME OF KIM'S SCAM ADS, WHICH SHE RECENTLY POSTED IN THE "GARAGE & MOVING SALES" CATEGORY ON CRAIGSLIST.ORG. WHY IS CRAIGSLIST LETTING HER GET AWAY WITH SCAMMING THE GOOD PEOPLE OF MAINE, WHO REALLY DO THINK THAT THEY ARE GIVING GOODS, MONEY, FOOD, EVEN LIVESTOCK, TO A LEGITIMATE CHARITY? WHY ARE THEY NOT DELETING OR BLOCKING HER SCAM ADS, ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY ARE FLAGGED?
WHAT KIM IS GETTING AWAY WITH IS UTTERLY RIDICULOUS. DO YOU THINK THAT YOU OR I WOULD GET AWAY WITH THESE SCAMS? DO YOU THINK THAT THE IRS WOULD ALLOW US TO GET AWAY WITH NOT CLAIMING ANY OF THE MONEY OR GOODS ON OUR TAXES? WHY IS SHE GETING AWAY WITH IT?:
Please note how she uses all kind of "sob stories" to gain sympathy. Please also note how she pretends to be illiterate and constantly misspells words, uses poor grammar and diction, etc., also to gain sympathy and lead people to believe that she is possibly an older, poor, uneducated farmer who is trying to help others. The fact of the matter is that, the only person Kim is helping, is HERSELF! She is getting all kinds of money, free food, furniture, antiques and new items, feed for animals, animals, whatever her little heart desires FOR FREE and TAX-FREE to boot!!!!!
It is NOT bad enough that she is pretending to help people who are down on their luck. No, not Kim. She has to take it even further, and pretend that she is helping handicapped kids. She also claims that she is helping fire victims and children who can't afford to feed their family pets. Come on now. How much better at scamming innnocent folks can anyone be than this?????
