I'd tell them to go find a TB for themselves to meet the requirements of the challenge.

I wonder why they picked you out?

I'd send the PM to the bit bucket without a response.

Yeah, I can't figure that out. Just grabbed the TB last week. The cacher has over 6000 finds.

After thinking about it more, I'd probably be a little tempted to 'out' them on the Groundspeak forums too. Smile I can't say I'd recommend that course of action however.

Some people will do anything to get the requirements for challenge caches, including logging finds on caches they didn't find. Everyone plays the game differently.

Yeah I agree, I looked at all the FL challenges and didn't see a 'Diabetes Bug' Challenge.

"Some" people also log a find on events that they didn't attend and didn't sign the log for and apparently showed up after the event was over and admitted to it yet needed the event for a challenge (didn't admit to that part) so logged as attended anyway.
