    So I went back 300 pages on this forum and I started running into a few threads about itsme5712 or something like that.
    What all happened? Who were the two itsmes? Any other interesting swfc history stories?

    Any way I was just curious and have wanted to ask for awhile. Plus the forums been dead, now would be a fun time to go back in swfc history. :)
    It looks like all that went down a month or two after I started the game... and I didn't join here for a year or more after. So enlighten me and tell me more tales. I enjoy listening to these tales :)

    Itsme5712 was involved in some trading fraud. Did mystery auctions and then went on to borrow cards or time from the winners. With the big trust this player had at the start, borrowing cards wasn't much of a problem and that way a pyramid scheme was born.

    Eventually it was exposed and itsme5712 was banned.

    I can't tell. I tried a quick search on the members of AI but neither show up.

    Banned members don't show up in the list when you start to type a name, but annoyingly, the profiles on the left of everyone posting always show a full member. So based on that you can't tell that someone's banned. I think they're both banned, but I know that itsme5712 is banned for the pyramid scheme.

    Why was the other banned? You can find the other by going to a feedback page and looking to the right, shows people with most feedback.

    What exactly is a pyramid scheme? Edit googled it

    itsme5712 is also known as "she who shall not be named"
    I recall her using a proposed Legion merger as a ploy to utterly obliterate a top ten Legion...as in, she kicked the entire membership and stole their ship.

    The other itsme had a trade watchlist before BMan made one. For as far as I remember, this trading watchlist went down even sooner the moment that people asked for the sources of the data. That itsme simply disappeared with it.

    It's sad to see people misuse trust.

    There was another one I think. More related to an auction here on AI. Was a mystery auction and itsme ordered the winner not to tell anything about the cards. Eventually this person revealed the whole scheme and for as far as I can remember, that's when itsme was banned. The person who revealed this did this over three posts which were way longer than a 15 minute read.

    I found that I can still search for itsme5712 in the search by member bit but that of course gives me any thread reply of her and not the thread that revealed the scam.

    EDIT: It probably isn't. I found this in the search: https://appinvasion.com/threads/itsme5712-her-response.285345/

    and further in the thread I read someone mentioning being sorry for those SLJH legion members (or whatever the name was), so that's definitely the banning reason. Still, I'm sure there was something with an auction as well.

    Oh read that response at your own peril. I didn't but based on the replies in the thread, it's pretty awful.
