Candy Acid Hair Extensions - Beware of Fakes/Scammer

Post by abby_carnage » Sun Jul 11, 2010 11:50 am

I'm posting this on behalf of Ruth of Candyacidhair extensions

http://www.myspace.com/kandiacidhairextensions

^^^
This person has stolen her photos, as well as many of mine. They are pretending we are customers. Please share and make everyone aware of this fake so that nobody loses money. Ruth has put a hell of a lot of time and effort into her work, and we hate to see her efforts abused.

Thanks everyone!!!

Cheeky b***h! She's even stolen my picture!

That's never happened to me before :shock:
She's even stolen her name!

How do I report things as I'd like to and I've never done it before :?:

I've messaged her telling her to take mine and everyone else's pictures down

I thought I'd seen it all before - I didn't think anyone would be so blatant!

I've reported her and messaged her...it's weird I've read these posts before and am always shocked but I've never had anyone take a picture of me before - I feel quite violated. I can't even imagine how Ruth must be feeling!

Lets hope it's dealt with quickly!

Oh yah, I posted it on DTBD.

It's quite a pathetic stance really. If anyone has her real name, they should keep it on file for future rip offs. Don't know what makes people think it's ok to assume someone else's identity...

It's so awful. No matter how many fakes you catch, there will always be a heap more. She should start watermarking her photos if she doesn't already.

RivetLicker, I'm glad I saw your post on Myspace :D I will gladly repost that bulletin until I see the page taken down or corrected.

Posted on my FB too - I'm just learning how to do all this stuff - I haven't had to do it before :roll:

Can she contact the police or anything?? I'm guessing they'll probably laugh it off as not important enough but if she's taking money from people surely that's fraud

I honestly have no idea. I am however - going to watermark all my photos & then re-add them to FB

I think I may do the same - I naively thought that my photos would never get taken (I know it's not my work but it's still a photo of me) as I don't put myself in the same league as many other girls on here but I guess you can never be too careful!

I understand your anger towards this. I wouldn't want my picture on someone's page who is responsible for stealing someone's identity and probably stealing a bunch of people's money.

I've just noticed she's even stolen all the wording from Ruth's page - even the bit about being a genuine seller and everything is made with love :x

Disgusting

I messaged her a one word message saying thief but I also messaged someone who left a comment for her wanting to order, warning them it is not her work in the pics and that they will likely get sub par work if they order from her. It really is pathetic.

I wanted to do something like that but couldn't find any comments or people who had ordered - where did you see that??

None of my pictures are up there, but it's such a blatant fraud I had to leave a catty message. Unreal. I need to be way more diligent about watermarking. I hate to break the balance of a good picture though! Ugh, so sad.

How does some random posting "thief!" help the situation any more? Surely it should be left to those who are directly involved, not the peanut gallery.

Someone responded to my bulletin on Myspace regarding this... she thought that the page was changed/she changed her name. It so easy to be fooled by these fake pages, especially since all of the info and pictures were stolen. Atleast currency and location kinda give it away... but not for everyone :( I hope this gets solved real quick.

I think you have a great point. The message I sent (and no, I am not directly involved) did not say merely "theif", but simply and clearly outlined the level of disrespect involved, and how I am personally insulted to see such a talented artist's reputation be potentially under fire because of it.

I messaged her asking her to take the pictures of me down...and everyone else's as she had stolen them - I also told her that everyone involved was aware of what she had done and that she was out of order...that was about it. I also reported the pictures of me as stolen to MySpace.

Stupid question but has anyone messaged Ruth from Candy Acid herself to let her know about all of this?
