Okay perhaps one more post before we let it die

On Jan 5th signame WendyB posted a msg about winning ebay item #330199177428 and wrote a little bit about the purchase. A feedback on this item # exists in ebay account wendyb5202.

What does that say ... well, no impostor would go to the extent of faking WendyB, then monitoring her ebay activities to see the purchase, for what ... for writing a run-of-the-mill purposeless post like that one ?!!

So to me it's beyond any doubt that signame WendyB = ebay wendyb5202.

Now, THE_REAL_WENDY_B claims she is wendyb5202. These things put together, THE_REAL_WENDY_B is DISHONEST -- either about being wendyb5202, or about not knowing signame WendyB.

You guys crack me up! Nope, I dont have the couch yet, getting it in a week and a half when i move. If I cant sleep tonight I may start reading this. I wonder if I can print it out...
Ever thought about publishing it? May sell better than much crap sold as literature. Or make some format modifications and send it to a TV-network as manuscript for a soap opera?

Just some observations from a fascinated reader, original WendyB thread

Just some observations from a fascinated reader, original WendyB thread:

My love for Pentax cameras started with a Christmas present from my father of a k1000 series camera. I can remember my mother and father arguing about this present and its expense in detail.
I can bet I've read this before in another forum, except it was not a Pentax. Can't remember where though. I believe it was a guy telling about how he got a SLR from one of those cheaper K-mount brands that are dead since long. Copied?


Further down her initial thread, no objections to submit photos, which I believe have later been a constant issue:

If there is a particular lens that I have that you or anyone would like to see, I can certainly post the shots.

Just ask, If I have not shot it with the lens I certainly can.

Starting up a P-base account in the short and near future.

Sincerely,

Wendy

It would seem that Wendy is Wendy and just go on here bull-shitting to the n-th degree and the yarns got spun way to large for her to handle. I almost bid on one of her lenses and I realized the connection! I could just see UPS bring a big old box with Psycho music playing and a woman with a butcher knife busting out!

If she was bringing me an M 20 f/4, it would be worth it.

It was a F 50mm f1.7 but I already have an FA 50mm.

Has anyone else thought to google "Wendyb" as the new Wendy claimed to have done? On page three, her post about how appauled she was at the imposter appeared. On page six, a link to her profile appeared.

Wow... I've got a pretty common name, and I've never cared enough to go through six google pages looking for anyone pretending to be me.

Hahaha can you believe it ... ebay wendyb5202 has written back to me saying,

quote: "Why am I receiving this message from you? I am not affiliated with the Pentaxforums and never have been".

The words "this message" refers to one I sent earlier warning wendyb5202 that someone on Pentaxforums had claimed to be her; if that wasn't her she should take care to protect/defend her ebay reputation.

Unsurprisingly, wendyb5202 is only keen to deny being on PF while not giving a dammn about her ebay id being abused. She wasn't even surprised by it, that says something in itself doesn't it
