Unusual favoriting activity

Will someone give this "shop" (except there isn't one) a look and tell me what you think? Is this a scam or what?

If you look at her favorites and then refrest the page a few seconds later, 13 pages or so of favorites have been added to her "faves"....any thoughts?

Yes, seems to be so. They are new as of yesterday. Extremely odd behavior.

Why bring this to bugs though. It's not a bug. Why not just report them?
Where do you report them at.
Good question Stephanie - lol. I don't know myself...
Unfortunately there isn't any way of reporting a buyer only account. The account seems to have been set up to drive traffic to their own website.
Really annoying that one can't report this person. She came twice to my shop this morning.

I have that kind of spammers at least once a day now :o(
I've had several similar buyer accounts favoring items in my shop. Looks like there a new trend of entrepreneurs promoting their "For Etsy Sellers - out side of Etsy" business.
I'm a little weirded out thought that someone can come up with Apps to favorite items faster than you can click on them.....

Kinda like the Treasury Commenting Bot.....
This is NEW !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! How can it be 5868 pages of favorite in 1 days?
And Bam! The minute I peeked,
they peeked back.....
just got added to that speedy little Favorite list....

Yeah, I think thats creepy........

Unfollow username?

Are you sure you want to stop following this person?
