Unfortunately both of the most recent scams were perpetrated by
members on WTM who really are homeschooling families and had
been on WTM for some time, with lots of posts about

A friend and I were talking about the homeschool community in
general, and how it has changed. As homeschooling continues to
expand, it has truly become a microcosm of the world with all the
same problems (theft, dishonesty, deceit etc.) you find everywhere
else in the world. "Homeschool buyer beware" definitely applies.

My policy for eBay used to be that I would not spend any more than
I could afford to lose. That is probably a good mindset for internet
sales of homeschool curriculum as well, based on the scams and
stories of PayPal refunding money to buyers even after they have
received the curriculum - I have heard that a number of times.

After this year's scandals I will be doing my best to buy locally. Even
though I got my money back in my situation, the stress and time it
took from my family was a large expense.
