Please forgive me but I can't remember this beautiful raw ladies name but I know she has been on the forum for years or I would have posted to her personally...I know they've done this before and thought she should know.....evil I tell ya!!!:mad:
It isn't her, it isn't her story but they are her pictures...the gall!!!

Shoot! Yeah! Can't remember her name. It'll come to me...:confused:

it happens. unfortunately that's part of what can happen when you post pics of yourself on the internet... they can be used for something other than what you want them used for.
we've discussed this a few times on this forum before...
10-02-2009, 02:01 PM
It happens all the time...shocking when you see someone you know.
10-02-2009, 02:01 PM
yeah, it's weird...

I think her name is Brittany (not sure how it's spelled). I just saw her picture on We Like it Raw, too. Not sure how to let her know though...

On the We Like It Raw you had to give permission. Maybe she ok'd this? :confused:

Maybe, but that site had her Raw before & afters.

That's terrible! :eek: I can't say I'm surprised that they would steal someone pictures and represent them, though. :rolleyes:

That particular product is the scam one. My friend got caught by that one. She signed up for the free sample and gave her credit card number to pay the postage and they took over €500 from her account.
She was in touch with the distributor in Scotland and he (probably just one distributor) is sending out one and a half million sterling worth of product a week.
Stealing someone's identity would not bother scam artists like these.

Truly so disgusting, especially the fake comments.

things like this can always happen....it shouldn't stop us from posting our pics though. I don't envy those people,-all that energy they send out into the world will definitely come back to them one day

I got in touch with someone who is connected to her last year sometime, I think.
This person at first thought I was "ratting" on her, and not trying to do a good deed by letting her know.
Bottom line, she should know by now... whether or not she gave permission and what not, she at least knows that her pictures are showing up.
It stinks that people do swipe others stuff, though...

Contrary to popular opinion, it is not permissible to steal photos, no matter where they are posted. It is copyright infringement. There are definite steps that can be taken to get the photos removed. If I was Brittany and they were my photos I would definitely get in touch with the powers that be and follow through.
I am not a stickler, but I would find that totally unacceptable!
Here's a link to some steps that you can take (http://freelanceswitch.com/freelancing-essentials/how-to-prevent-hijackers-from-ripping-off-your-website/). The article is in relation to website designs that are stolen, but the principles remain the same.

Her name (here) was BritanieFaith (something like that)...
I feel anything that gets put "out there" is open for grabs, unfortunately...I'm not saying that makes it right by any means...

I'm pretty sure THESE were stolen unless this is his acai berry page: http://www.getting-ripped-fast.com/index-vc.php

Well yeah the person is real and she may really be running the ad or really not or when she posted these same pics here they weren't really her. Who really knows?!?!?

That disclaimer is there due to the new FTC laws.
They are cracking down on affiliate marketers, especially those purporting health claims.
