Here are about 140 images you may want to check out.

Yes, I've checked through those. Most are ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/31.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/31.gif', '/') + 1) . ' stare_at_the_sun's, in his own account, so those are okay. On page two there's a large chunk with thumbs not visible.
These were the horse shots we reported (including one of mine). They said that it might take a few days for the shots to be totally removed from the site (hence the titles still showing) but they'd been removed from viewing.
Larus wasn't concerned about his and I reported Rackat's after the poster of it was so RUDE to me, so waiting on it.
But thanks for asking, we wouldn't want to miss a big lot like that :)

eta; Bily, I checked, they look familiar, but they're not ones she has up now. I think they may be in albums that have already "disappeared", but watch for more there, since that's a new account. She may be looking for a new home now that the heat's on at webshots.

This thread refuses to die, because the "dead" person refuses to give up.
Last night I sent out two more emails to professionals Mozingo1 has stolen from.
Both are grateful and contacting Webshots. One sent me a copy of his letter to them and the other asked if I had any personal contact info for her that he could forward to his attorney. I liked the sound of that last bit! :)

But I now need to PM Billy and ask him to contact Martin Amm again, since she's put one of his pro shots on a FREE STOCK site!!

Man, this woman needs to be stopped... loads of new MAF04 signups at photo sites since she "died"....

ART! Get the torch and get the right target this time! :)

I am sure they would like to know that she has over 10788 downloads of her stolen photos also. I am sure they could whittle that down to certain shots.

I haven't contacted Webshots to lay out the whole, sordid story but I think I should. Maybe if they know all the other crap beyond the theft they'll realise this isn't somebody they necessarily want connected with their site.

It really is unbelievable!

She has this one on one of her sites... It looks familiar and thought it was from DPC (although I could be wrong). Does anyone recognize it?

Looking at her pictures I have to say that she sucks. Most of them are OOF or have no editing to them at all.
05/08/2008 07:40:06 AM · #258
just googled "maf04 photos", she obviously is on every photosite on this planet
05/08/2008 09:51:44 AM · #259
Done! Freaking crazy image grabbers...

Thank you, Billy :)

Guys, we never did find an e-mail addy for her, did we?

And yeah, she's everywhere... but it seems she's just testing out most of them; some have none posted, some had a few early. It seems that she's looking for places like Webshots where she can get lots of attention and adulation for "her" work. If nobody's fawning over her she abandons it.

I know, I'm tilting at windmills; going after 1 person isn't really going to change anything in the big picture. But maybe 1 here and one there and another one...?

I think Geraldo Rivera should be contacted...I would love to see him show up at her doorstep to question her about it.

Don't be discouraged... I for one enjoy the periodic updates and shenanigans. ;)

Not at all--entertainment is a byproduct. ;) Seriously, you should be commended for your efforts. At the very least people shouldn't try to pass off others work as their own--even if they aren't making money.

Both of my recent contacts have been keeping me up-to-date with their actions. Both contacted Webshots the same day; one's shot has been removed, the other's are still all there.
The first has read the two threads here, and has offered to send me his generic legalise letter he uses, so if it appears useful I'll post it here for y'all.
(Ack, did I REALLY just say y'all????)

Eta; Last week I left Faye a message saying simply, "Still at it, I see".
That was removed, so today I left this one;
"You know, if you'd just quit stealing others' work you wouldn't have to keep removing honest but embarrassing messages and Webshots wouldn't have to waste their time removing shots from your albums... Just a thought :)"

This may be the first practical suggestion regasrding this problem I've heard in months. :-)

Alternatives might be to report it to David Pogue of the NY Times or CBS Radio tech columnist Larry Magid.

Hmmm... I wonder if Four Oaks has their own equivalent? :)
05/20/2008 12:54:03 PM · #269
Another album bites the dust... Her "waterdrops on flowers" had several shots stolen from the same person, so Webshots simply removed the whole album :D

She's removed my last message, but has otherwise been silent for the past 2 weeks; no shots posted, no messages left on others'... I'm pretty sure she's just waiting for me to go away again :)
05/20/2008 01:04:17 PM · #270
Don't go away, stay and fight for your rights! :)

Evan
05/20/2008 01:29:51 PM · #271
Oh, I won't, I just quiet down for a while until she pops her head up again ;)
I'm not actually fighting for MY rights, per se, since she's not stolen any of MY work, but because she's proven herself a thief, fraud and outright liar and continues despite being called on it several times.

I think what bothers me most is that there have been over 10,000 downloads from her albums that should have gone to the artist who actually did the work. Also the fact that she's posted someone else's professional work on a free stock site.

I had a look around and for sure Faye and her husband are the same person

and doing a little snooping, it would appear that cst2cst was Faye as well

No, cst2cst, Helen, was legitimate :)
She was helping us on the Faye thing. Faye WAS a member here as MAF04.

Helen was one of Faye's friends on Webshots and saw the goings-on we were involved in over there. We were in contact there, and she joined up here to lend her voice.
