40 People Say A Lubbock Woman Scammed Them Out Of Thousands

A few days ago I was approached by a newcaster who was interested in doing a story on a problem I was having. One day on facebook I got a friend request from a "business" titled Marcys Closet...yes; without the apostrophe. I noticed we had many mutual friends of military wives and support groups for the troops. I know a lot of military wives, girlfriends,etc. advertise and support among each other so I approved her request and checked out her page. She sold a lot of things and I placed an order and never got my items. She would then not anwser her e-mails and block ladies who ordered from her; some order totaling over 2K. My order was pretty small; however it's wrong she was targetting women, military spouses and anyone around the holidays especially. So many ladies have not gotten refunds; yet some were only able to through paypal if they used that as a payment method. She goes by a few different names such as Marcella, Marcy and numerous facebook names and pages...most around the name of Affordable fashionista, material girl fashion,etc.
She never once apologized or did anything except make excuses. She would say she had a miscarriage the day before, or the items we ordered were in a shed and would be was just all sick lies; especially the ones about her children. When I first ordered I thought things were sort of fishy because I got a fake tracking number and then suddenly on her page I noticed people were asking for the correct tracking numbers and she would soon delete them from her page. I decided to contact those ladies and we all compared evidence, stories and so on. I realized I had been scammed; and the sad part is that after many of us confronted her; she was still opening new pages and scamming new people. She even had the nerve to go under the name of Material Girl Fshn next and post she's selling things to donate to the troops...sick. Again; my order was fairly small (under $100) but my husband is deployed, we are young newlyweds, and he works very hard for his money. If I wanted to give away money; It would not be to a scam. I trusted her because she claimed she was a marines' girlfriend and she posted lots of photos of her merch and I have the messages even saved where she claimed that my order would not take long and it was shipped on a certain careful ladies; I guess there are monsters who love to target military spouses. Of course; she did not only target spouses of troops; some were local ladies in her area she'd even send an assistant to pick up money from; promising them their orders once they arrived. I have yet to get my refund back.

Military Ladies


1.) If she wasn't emotional before, that is all about to change.

2.) You getting a higher rank could just mean an automatic free lay.

3.) Get her a pair of dog tags, ASAP, This is crucial, she will never take them off.

4.) Most of the time, you losing reception during training is your fault.

(Though, she will eventually understand)

5.) Most of the time, everything is your fault.

(This especially goes for when she is pregnant)

6.) She WILL start talking like your guys and you talk, including using your last names.

7.) Her patriotism could out-do most of your men... she will be proud... VERY proud.

8.) Be Ready: your car will end up with a yellow ribbon magnet or an "I LOVE MY _____" sticker eventually.

(if you have seperate cars, hers will DEFINITLY have these)

9.) She will most likely need a pair of dog tags to hang from the car's rear view mirror.

(see 3)

10.) Every week she'll have "another song" that makes her think of you when you're away.

(And she'll cry to it, even when you're in the same room)

11.) If youre married, she may know the base better than you do... Don't take it personal.

12.) You will catch her comparing your relationship with "other couples" in the military constantly.

13.) She'll make 5 million friends online, and talk to you about them all the time because her "old friends just don't understand" like they do.

14.) Don't be shocked when she just drops civilian chicks out of her life like flies.

(she mostly does this when they complain to her)

15.) DO NOT if you love her, say anything about you not wanting to make her wait for you... (TRUST me men, YOU ARE WORTH every breath to these women, or they wouldn't be here)

16.) Most women actually do LOVE it when you are sweaty and dirty, even the girlie girls. it's sexy as hell.

17.) Only bring up the field once, say it clear, and don't bring it up again. We will remember the time, the dates, like stone inside our mind. Don't remind us.

18.) You ARE our hero. That isn't us being cute, it's us swelling with pride, feeling like a princess everytime we glance over and you're standing there.

19.) Don't worry about waking her up when you get a chance to call, trust me, she's NOT sleeping. If she is, she's been waiting for you to call all night, and fell asleep next to the phone.

20.) Leave at least 3 of your shirts for her... she'll wear them all the time and if she doesn't wear them out she WILL wear them to sleep.

21.) No matter what she was like before, she is tough & harder than a rock now. She can handle anything, she will get through it, tears or no tears.

22.) Don't be discouraged or taken back from her strength. It comes with the territory. When in your arms, she's still your queen, soft and sweet.

23.) Your kids might see mommy as the one in charge for a while, it's okay, they WILL respect you, just give it time.

24.) EVERYTHING in her life will be complicated, so she might not always get the simple things you say to her.

25.) Tag Chasers are her WORST enemy, she CAN and WILL spot these girls... random profain comments may come out of your little queens' mouth... its okay, shes protecting her best

26.) She will spend hours to look good on cam & pics for you, this is just a pasttime until you get home, be prepared for messy ponytails and comfy pants when you finally do get home.

27.) Her favorite sentences from you start with "when i get home" or "when i get out".

Lastly guys,
28.) No matter how much she's changed, never forget that you mean the world to her, she loves you more than anything, and you will ALWAYS be her hero..whether you think you are one or not.

Kris Humphries Believes His 72-Day Marriage to Kim Kardashian was a "Fraud"

Kris Humphries Believes His 72-Day Marriage to Kim Kardashian was a "Fraud"

I will just say that first off; you never know which tabolids and articles about celebrities are actually true...and I actually really like the Kardashians; they must be doing something right. The world is totally interested in at least some of their lives and they have a very popular hit show and products. They are earning terrific incomes and who really knows what they are like as normal people, friends, siblings,etc. Anyhow; I really feel bad for Kris. He seemed like a level-headed, mature and honest guy on the show. He seemed very old fashioned and respectful as well; I really feel bad for him; he probably was not used to the TV following him everywhere, living in L.A., a huge family and all the tabloids and cameras. Whatever the case may be; I think Kim should have taken marriage a tad more seriously. I am sure she was embarrassed and felt pressured...but he did propose to her; so obviously he loved her and it seems she probably only wanted a wedding, love, children,etc. without realizing marriage is supposed to be a lifelong commitment. If I were Kim; I would not have immediatly done a season of a reality TV show right after getting married; either. Seriously; you have tons of money...taking time for your marriage is very important I would say. She has plenty other business ventures. I do not think couples should portray their lives on television...what do you save for yourself. There is no mystery; everyone's in your business...where is the fun in that? Your entire life would seem to be chaos, cameras...with zero privacy. I understand they're probably loving the attention; but why stay married for only 72 do people give up on a marriage that easilly? Unless he cheated or she cheated; I think she should have at least tried marriage counseling. It seems like after the wedding and fun was done; she was done. I think I really lost all respect I had for her; but then again she is so brave for ending it...most people would have stayed in it. I do not think it was fraud; I think she just got in over her head. I think they did love each other; but he was not really what she truly wanted. Who knows; I can't wait until they just open their mouths and give us the true details...but I'm sure she's trying to keep her mouth closed so he will "respect" her and not reveal the dirty truth...we shall see...
