Does anyone happen to know or have a link to the post when WD was first mentioned? I'm trying to compile some info.

I believe it was here Please read
Thanks. It seems that the posts linked on the first page have gotten removed- I'll try to do some digging, I'll let you all know if I can find it. I've been keeping a google doc since February, compiling all of the relevant info into one place. Initially to give to my vet, but if anyone wants the link just pm me.

Is @taxidermynerd meaning the thread where they were first introduced as a new place to get food and toys or first uncovered as scammers?

The one that really kicked everything off. Where we all saw this person's post, and thought it was a great idea and started placing orders. I'm currently all the way back in April 2019, looking for it. No clue if it's still around.

When I saw this thread being active again, my heart sank thinking that she'd reared back up again.

Something earlier. Shezbug and I are looking for it, sometime around March/April 2019. Thank you though. :)

I apologize if I'm ruffling any feathers or bringing up bad memories, but I feel that this is important to note down. Knowledge is power, after all. I don't want what happened to Chirp to happen to another bird ever again. Even though WD is gone, I'm sure another scammer will be along eventually to pull something similar. Whenever I do work on this, I think of Chirp and all the other birds that were harmed.

Did you find what you were looking for?
I will send you the links.
Remember, it has nothing to do with who posted about these items, they were just sucked in like many others were. I know if I were over there , I would have ordered for sure.

Yes, we found what we believe is the earliest mention of WD on the forum, which is also what attracted a lot of people to this vendor.

My goal is simply to create a time-line of significant events in this saga. In my opinion, the first post is significant as it's what got our attention. In no way am I trying to blame anyone, although I have my personal opinion. I was sucked in too, remember. In fact, my feeding Chirp WD was a factor that led to his death, and I have to live with that. We were all just people who thought we were doing something good for our birds.

@taxidermynerd do you need photos cuz I have a bunch on my phone?
Not at the moment, but thank you for offering :heart:

Had she followed her own words.........she could have been something! Yet in the words, she duped People, just a sad, sick and criminal Person.

We wait......for the next scam. Unless she is wholesale only selling to stores?

My edit worked just had to send them BBB POST THAT IT WAS PERMANENTLY CLOSED. MM never try f-ing with CRAZY BIRD PEOPLE AGAIN. YOU MET YOUR MATCH we do not protect our faithful companions for nothing.

The Document is finally finished. I think this is the definitive record of everything, put in one place, at least the only one I've seen. Hit me up if you want the link. I'll be sharing it with my vet today. Good Riddance WD.
