BEWARE OF MICHELLE HIDALGO, MARTIN HIDALGO (HUSBAND) PAMPEREDSHELL@YAHOO.COM..........these people are scam artists, they set out to take money from mothers who are just trying to do what is best for their children by cloth diapering. At the end of August on a cloth diaper buy/sell/trade forum called diaperswappers, I purchase 2 berryplush diapers from "pamperedshell" AKA Michelle Hidalgo. When I had not recvd them the following week, I sent her an email. She claimed to have mailed them, and also said she was delivering her baby that week. That turned out to be a lie, and she actually delivered in the middle of September via csection at Scottsdale North Hospital.
It all unraveled when it came to my attention and many other moms, that she had sold the same diapers to tons of moms, and stole upwards of 1600.00 that we know of (upwards of 50 moms affected). It was the same story with many moms (emails claiming she mailed them), but nobody ever recvd a thing. She did this over a course of a couple of days, so nobody had a chance of knowing what was going on. We are a very close knit community, and have banded together to obtain justice. We all paid through Paypal, and although our cases have been found in our favor.........she cleaned out her account, so there is no money to pay us back.
ALOT is being done to catch up to this chick, and I myself will not stop until we get justice. She since has sent out emails claiming to be working with PP to get our money refunded, but that is a complete lie! It has been over a weeks since she sent that email, and if she never intended on scamming us, the money would be there to pay us back. However she obviously spent it! She wants everyone to back off, because she now realizes that she messed with the wrong group of mommys.
The sad part is she has now 4 children that are being raised by a scam artist! Anyone who would plot to steal from other mothers is the lowest scum of the earth! She will realize once she is being bars, that trying to scam others to get ahead is not the thing to do. It is a felony!!! She is not a smart criminal by any means, and has left quite a trail of info for us all to use! She also purchased from cloth diaper stores in AZ, and chargedback the stores after recving her diapers. She herself purchased diapers from mom's on diaperswappers, and after getting the diapers claimed herself not to have recvd them, and stole that money back from them!!! What a piece of work, huh? She has also scammed people on ebay, and other sites as well.
Here is the info on this so called mother: Michelle Hidalgo born 7/30/83, she has 3 boys, and 1 girl....., her house is in foreclosure so they recently moved, but here is the address anyway 3609 W Summit Walk Dr Anthem, AZ 85086-2769. Following is all the email addresses this scammer uses email@example.com
Beware of this loser, unless you just like handing your money over to strangers for nothing. I do not take it lightly when someone steals from my family, and will stop at nothing to make sure we all receive justice in this matter!! Her husband is just as bad as he sent out emails claiming that his wife was in the nicu with his baby, a couple of weeks before the baby was even born. He is just as much involved in this as she is....his name is Martin Hidlago, and he is 31!
