Dear Member

The moderators of HuddersfieldRecycle have evidence that you are obtaining items from group members and are reselling them.

Whilst there are no rules saying that you can't resell items, you must tell the person you got the item(s) from, of your intention to do so.

If you are found to be selling items and you haven't informed the member, you are at risk of prosecution by the Police for obtaining goods by deception.

The group moderators are duty-bound to co-operate with requests for information from the Police, Inland Revenue, DWP and/or other Government officials.

This information could include, but isn't limited to, Group Management logs, Message Archives and emails.

Any relevant information can and will be, used as evidence. For example, to support a case of Benefit fraud, brought by the DWP.

So if you are unemployed and selling items for profit, you can be prosecuted for Benefit fraud. The Inland Revenue can also prosecute for Tax fraud, if you haven't paid tax on earnings gained from any items.

Please consider this email your first warning. The moderators will not hesitate to remove you from the group and pass your details on to the relevant people, should a second warning be necessary.

Regards Huddersfield Moderation Team.


Dear $memberid,

Please may I check whether you are planning to sell on or make a profit from this item?

We do not mind resellers on the group, but we do ask that they make it known so that members may make an informed decision whether or not to pass on items they may have.

Kind Regards

[your_name] [your_group] Freegle Group Moderator $owneremail
