Yesterday my friend @noemillunastorta resteemed a post by @antonette in which she described her situation... which by the way is dire. But, the name at the bottom of the post did not belong to her, it belonged to someone named @mohsinahmed. In an effort or help, I too resteemed the post and sent $25 SBD to the name at the bottom of the post (@mohsinahmed) as did one of my followers, who also desired to help @antonette, a young mother in the Philippines who had been evicted and had no food money for her children.
When I checked my blog later, the post I had resteemed was completely different than the one I had tried to resteem by @antonette... confused yet? I know I am! I checked @noemilunastorta's blog and the same thing happened to her... It was not @antonette's post on her blog page, it was the same as the one on mine. How could this happen? When I read it on my friend's resteem yesterday, it was the right post with the wrong name at the bottom. That's why I resteemed it myself. Not knowing Antonette, I assumed it was her username.
Thank God that many of the wonderful people here in the Steemit community stepped up to help (and the $$$ went to the right place. I checked @mohsinahmed's wallet and naturally the money I sent as well as the money my other friend sent was gone... and not to Antonette. Obviously this guy is a ripoff artist... if you see any of his posts- FLAG THEM!!! Let's make him pay for stealing money from a desperate woman with sick children (they have chicken pox) and no place to live... This is despicable!!! Please resteem this post so as many people as possible can be made aware. ALL money I make from this will go to @antonette (as well as the original $25 I had intended which I'm sending now)
