    wow, I saw them once! I reported them though but they are STILL on the loose! They LIKED me and tried to wiggle my password out of me! They knew I was part of the blog too!

    Ugggh! I hate it when people try to trick you into getting into your stuff! That’s just plain old CRUEL! I really feel bad to the people who just got scammed by them. Please everyone, I do hope you be very careful about this.

    I would definately not want to talk to them! I’ll bet that they target JoyWarmHeart and JadaJingles more because they have a lot of rare stuff.

    Awe, it actually happened to you!? That’s too bad, I’m sorry addieapril153. I saw GlennDivaBear last night asking people if they wanted bears or cats or dogs, whichever they like. I only caught the end of the conversation otherwise I would have reported them, but I wasn’t quite sure what was going on. People, people, people, it is horrible.

    By the way Addie, I’m so sorry that they took your stuff! I hope you get it back 😦

    The same thing happened to me by YsabellaGiggly. Yesterday I was on my mule account and she whispered to me that she could get me a bear and that she has helped tons of girls. I knew she was a scammer to begin with, so I just went along with it. So she told me to change my password to something simple and then tell her it through bear mail. I didn’t tell her my pass, but I reported her and I logged out and went on with my main account and she was still standing there waiting for me after 10 minutes. LOL

    You know I think I actually saw people asking for passwords last night. I didn’t think much about it at the time, but I certainly will now. Spread the word on BABV too. If you see stuff like that happening make sure you let the people around them know that they aren’t telling the truth and to report them.

    Please let it be said that all of the bloggers here are good people and would never try to hurt someone else. Yes they may have done something wrong, but the right response from us is to report them not try to get them back.

    Oh thanks for the warning addie. I am sorry that this has happened to you. To think, that even in the virtual world there are people who do bad things to others! It is horrible!!! If I see these two on bearville, believe me, I will report them!

    They always go on bear boulevard because people with lotsa rare items go on that den.

    May 25, 2008 4:51 pm

    Someone just asked me to trade them my stuff. They said they would mail their things in bear mail, but wanted to wear my things before they gave me theirs. Were they trying to scam me?

  27. kitten permalink

    Yes, they DEFINATELY were amie.

  28. JessBearHug permalink
    May 25, 2008 5:20 pm

    aimeefuzzybear, that doesn’t sound right to me. A trade would be with the trade window. If you are giving someone something, there is no need for them to send you something in bear mail later. It should be done at the trade time. If you wait for her to bear mail you the items, there’s a good chance you won’t get them. Be very careful

    Never trust that unless you actually know the person. For example, I know Kelleysunshine in real life so I would not feel uncomfortable trading that way with her in a situation where we could not be online at the same time. Or if it was someone like Kitten or Freya who you know has a good track record with trading.
    Never trust doing that with someone you just met on BABV.

    May 26, 2008 2:40 pm

    I think everything is ok. I think she just got frustrated about the maxine party. It did not work out well for everyone who had waited for so long. I think she just went to take a virtual break and join real life again.

    Please note that I have received a comment from Glenndivabear.

    This comment will not be posted for the following reasons:

    1. It is against the policy of this Blog to post or ask for codes for bears. These codes are to be obtained from Buildabear Workshop.

    2. All users are warned against the sharing of passwords.

  83. starofstars permalink
    May 27, 2008 7:29 pm

    actually i can tell my BFF my password anyway because if she does take my thing which i am 99.99% she will not her account is with my emal because she her mom did not let her use her emal for stuff like that so i can take it back but then i will be mad at her 😦 but i said again i am 99.99% she will not do that but thier is still that 0.01% nah i am JK i am 100% she will not 🙂

    Have you ever wanted to type something and you just can’t figure out the right words to say.
    Please everyone, especially those of you who have small children that you allow to play on BABV, be ware of two more that I need to mention.
    ValentinaDiva (there is a number on her name also but I didn’t catch it in time) and DiamondGirl5.
    I can’t really go into details about why to watch for them, but just be aware.

    i can’t remember the name but she had black short hair!
    They were asking people fur there passwords and saying that they will give them new codes and items won child nearly gave there password but i shouted and said no they will take your stuff LOL!!!
    luckily the girl heard me and then the scammer ran away!!

  87. larabanana permalink
    May 29, 2008 7:29 am

    some girl called winter fun (i think)
    says to people it is her birthday and every time she trades with me she always says it is her birthday and i say to her it can’t be your birhtday cause you say it every day and then she just goes gtg LOL

    May 29, 2008 7:30 am

    also sabrina sunshine(she has a number in her name) got blonde hair.
    if she says mail me the items if the trade does not work she will not mail the items so just be careful when some of them say that but don’t i had to say to her my dad works in build a bear and then she ran away!

  89. mikaelascubabear permalink
    May 29, 2008 5:39 pm

    This boy, I forgot his name but it was a Zac something, and he told me that he bear-mails his trades!!! I said,”then I don’t want to trade.” then I exed out

  90. Flappy9807/MilenaFlower permalink
    May 31, 2008 8:11 am

    Yeah, never trust those guys.

    If they really don’t believe us (like, when a girl asked me to bear mail it first, I wanted her to, but she doesn’t believe me, so I exed out…I really was going to send her it!) they should just do a trade. If their trade “doesn’t work” then don’t trade/go email babv.
