The other day i was bombarded with people telling me someone had stolen my photos on facebook and made a fake account. They were attempting to sell ftm prosthetics in the facebook group “All Transmen know Each other” https://www.facebook.com/groups/transmen/
I reached out to the admin “Justin Cascio” who refused to remove the person, stating he didnt have enough evidence that i wasn’t the one who stole photos and made a fake account. Even after tons of people commented, stated they knew me, i provided more pics of myself, website ect. This went on for hours! He then banned me and anyone messaging or commenting that he was wrong.
Later transmen reported sending this fake person money through western union, which was a scam, therefore their money was lost in a scam targeting transmen. This could of been prevented had the admin blocked the scammer from the group. But instead he refused and allowed the group to be vulnerable to this scam.
This facebook group is NOT a safe place and i highly recommend leaving it, this isn’t the first time the admin has refused to block someone “cis man posting dicks pics” and “cis crossdresser posting about how they want to impregnant a transman”
I’m 30 years old and I’ve been transitioning for almost 8 years, i have seen a lot of things go on in this community, BUT this bothers me more then anything. That a fellow “brother” would be so ignorant, disregarding and run a group in this manner.
Please brothers don’t fall victim to these scams, NEVER send anyone money through western union, only pay through a secure payment server like paypal. Double and triple check the site is legit, ask others if they have purchased items through the site. Please be safe! <3
