CABOT, AR- A Cabot couple wants their money back, after they say a woman scammed them out of a furniture purchase online. Joseph and Emily Schwedic along with 19,000 others buy and sell things on the Cabot Online Yard Sale on Facebook. When the couple never received the furniture spent nearly $600 dollars for in February, they warned group members about it.

“I’m pretty torn up about it,” says Schwedic. “It’s also just very frustrating for the fact that she’s doing it to all kinds of people everywhere.”

Schwedic says he learned about Lynn Hoffman and her furniture business through a friend who had a good experience. Little did he know his would be the complete opposite.

“It’s $600 dollars you know, we live paycheck to paycheck,” he says.

Schwedic started making room for the family’s new end tables, coffee table, buffet style table and kitchen table that never came.

“My kids had to eat on the kitchen floor and stuff because we didn’t have a table for them, and I let Ms. Hoffman know that,” says Schwedic.

Of the hundreds of comments left online, several claim they never got what they paid for from Hoffman, whose daughter Morgan Smith also posted several times, saying customers have even called her to get their money back.

According to Smith, her mother has been known to scam people and she says her mom has been in prison and goes by different aliases. She says her real name is Linda Reynolds.

The Arkansas Department of Correction confirms Reynolds is on parole for forgery. Since 2005, Reynolds has been in and out of prison for theft of property and hot check violations.

“She’s just got a long trail of being deceitful to people. I would like to get a reimbursement of my money because that’s paying bills for my family,” says Schwedic.

After filing a dispute with their credit card company and filing a police report, the Schwedics hope this investigation will prevent this from happening to anyone else. We called Reynolds and left a message, but haven’t heard back. Cabot Police say they are investigating this alleged scam.
