So women (mostly women) on Facebook often join these yard sale groups where people are buying, selling, and giving away all sorts of crap. Most people on there are great and they just wanna help each other out. But some people go on there just to be scam artists. So when we see something like this we like to alert the populace so that no one else falls for their gypsy tricks.
Today’s scam is actually kind of genius if it wasn’t so unethical. It involves baby formula, which is expensive as shit. The problem is that kids grow out of baby formula and Moms have all this leftover powder that’s of no use to them. So I guess they like to give it away. Here’s a repost from December 14, 2015, which was ORIGINALLY posted in February of 2015, from a woman named Erin in one of these groups:
As you can see she is responding to a woman named Julia Daley, who gladly accepted the free stuff with a sob story about her kid being on a feeding tube. Erin being the nice person that she is gave her everything for free. You cannot see Julia’s response because Erin took this screenshot and Julia has since blocked her. Here’s why:
Yup, that’s right. She gets it for free by using her “my kid is on a feeding tube story” and then she sells it wholesale. Profit margin infinity!!! Can’t go wrong, as long as you can live with the fact that you’re using a made up sick baby to scam real Moms. Erin saw this and blew up her spot all over Facebook. Thus the reason why she is blocked.
Now, is there anything illegal about this? Not that we know of. Does she have a right to make money in America? Absolutely. But making up a sick baby in order to do that kind of makes you a sheisty individual. Just sayin.
Anyway, we wanted to hear what Julia had to say. Is it true that she doesn’t really have a baby? If so, why does she have more Ensure than Babies R Us? But since she knows people are onto her schemes we had to go undercover for our interview with Julia. You be the judge and decide if she is telling the truth……
So let me get this straight. She doesn’t have a kid, but yet she has somehow stockpiled enough baby food to survive the apocalypse. And she doesn’t get any of this baby food for free, nor does she make a profit when she sells it. At best she breaks even, and she does so solely out of the goodness of her own heart.
And she decided to PAY for the formula that was ADVERTISED for free, just because she likes spending money. And this formula that she DEFINITELY paid for was going to her friend for her baby, because for whatever reason her friend couldn’t go on Facebook and get the free formula herself.
THEN she found out that her friend’s baby couldn’t even eat that formula because for some reason she didn’t ask her about it before spending money on it. So she was stuck with all this other baby food that she didn’t know what to do with. Thus why she started posting it on every Mommy and yard sale group in the 508. And just by looking at the groups she’s in, it’s pretty clear that this girl has quite the racket going on:
She’s even expanded to Franklin County. Colrain is in Franklin County!!! Seriously, Winchendon, Colrain, Fitchburg – these are like breeding grounds for unwed teenage mothers looking to buy half priced baby formula. It’s actually a genius marketing scheme.
And you could tell from our conversation that Julia was very intrigued by our proposal, but her lawyer told her not to spill the beans so she couldn’t come out all the way. Just look at the way it ended. If we really wanted to start doing this Julia and Turtleboy could make bank. But now that this blog is published I guess the jig is up. Sorry Julia, you missed your chance.
