Warning! Careful of your Pictures!
i may have posted in the wrong forum but i found another members photos posted on the web on one of those SCAM diet websites.
I am in NO WAY promoting this at ALL but I clearly know that this woman pictured on teh website (it was a banner w/ her pictures on My Space) and she was a member who posted pictures here in Raw Food Talk.
I dont know if this girl is aware of this... it could be none of my business, however... take heed and might want to consider blocking out your face so that your pictures/face is not used on a scam diet website.
Just a Warning!! So be careful everyone!!!
Ack, that's so bad! So they just stole her pictures? Maybe she consented and this is her? Oh dear

Not again! This happened before. They even used false testimonials. I don't know if it was the same place or not.
#1 she's hott! congrats to her! boys, be shamed!
i read about some sites using raw foodists pictures for selling their weightloss products before! that is so unethical! they even used angela stokes' pictures!!!!
the site is for acai berry. so it's possible that it's her site or she consented to that one. it doesn't look too fishy. since this thread is here and if her pics are being used without her permission, i hope she gets to see this!

Thanks for bringing this to our awareness. I'm just going to put the intention out there that my pictures are safe and will not be used without my consent to promote anything but the raw food lifestyle and my beliefs. Fear is a strong energy but you can counteract it with your own power to create and manifest whatever you want. I trust my photos are safe and my testimonial will be available to inspire anyone considering the raw food lifestyle and so it is. :)
Oh, I know who she is, she posts on here, her name on here is britaniefaith. Wonder if she knows about the webpage?
According to her Profile she isnt even from TX, it says Mass
YIKES!!! That's crazy that people would that.....and scary to think they are looking around the forum.

I just tried to contact her and leave her a message.
THAT way, at least she knows ; )
Thanks for pointing that out!!
I will LOVE the day I have to yell at someone for using my before and after photos for their weight loss get gorgeous product!!!
wow- it's actually illegal to do that
I'm pretty sure that under copyright laws the pic is automatically copyrighted by the person who TOOK the picture... if it's true that the photographer didn't consent to the pics being used this way, then something could be done.
btw, this whole Acai berry thing is really annoying... it's just like the hoodia thing, and the green tea thing. I mean, when are people going to accept that you have to do more than sit on your bottom and take a pill??
This is frightening that someone could use anyones pictures and use them for false means. The worrying thing is, it could happen and the majority of people wouldn't know about it, because its unlikely that I would visit these questionable sites and just stumble across it. That said, I have very little sympathy for someone who sent risque photos of themselves to their boyfriend/girlfriend, those type of things always come back to haunt you.

Raw Heaven, I'm with you in trusting the process and the power of not living in fear.
Being aware and sticking together is wonderful & powerful energy.

Only if you believe that your body is a haunting image....! *laughs*
