Got a pm from ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' tjbel05 letting me know that my "Silky Smooth" challenge entry was being shown here:

photozo.com/album/showphoto.php?photo=127949&ppuser=19101

Yes, it's our "dead" friend again! I've written to their site council telling them it's mine and that this person constantly steals the work of others and presents the images as hers.

I hope they react, otherwise I'm gonna have to borrow Arts pitchfork!

Has anyone notified Mr. Howell about it yet?


I emailed him with the link and a short explanation of what led us there and what's transpired.


I had also previously emailed him with info on this. He responded today...

Thank you so much for bringing this copyright violation to my notice.

Iíve had four people contact me about this today. Itís good to know that there are some good honest people out there not prepared to let misuse go unreported. Restores my faith in people being basically good!

My images have been stolen several times before, which was really
disheartening. Each time Iíve had them successfully removed, but it does make me wonder how many I may have missed!

Iíve contacted webshots, and hope they will remove the images very soon.

Much appreciated, and if you ever want to buy anything off me please keep this email and Iíll give you a discount off your purchase.

Best wishes,

Tony

This alll seems so bizarre and frankly idiopathic. This chick seems positively mental.

Not to cast any stones or anything but how do we know ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/31_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/31_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' cst2cst isn't this Faye/Alice/heavanbound12 chick? Sorry if you aren't but if she's pretending to die of cancer (which I tink is really fucked up since 2 people close to me died of cancer & it aint funny) what's to stop her from joining here to get her rocks off and keep an eye on what we're all doing?

Just a thought. If I'm wrong, I'll be the first one to say sorry. In fact, just in case I am, sorry!

' cst2cst actually brought this new photo-stealing profile to our attention. I doubt Bonnie's the culprit. Just doesn't seem right. Faye/Alice doesn't seem the type to flaunt the theft. She wants everyone to think she's a sweet, innocent person.

And did anyone notice that Maf04, backwards, is the initials for Faye Alice Mozingo?


Her real name is Alice Faye Mozingo, but she goes by Faye. I think her moniker is short for "Mozingo, Alice Fay". The 04 probably represents the fact that she lives in Four Oaks, NC, or perhaps she started using that name in 2004.

The curious thing is that usually (at least in my short experience with this), if you contact the admins at the site, action is taken rather quickly, and the picture is taken down. Not here. I have had no response. Weird.

I haven't heard from their admins either. Maybe they don't contact anyone at the wekeend.
I just posted a comment on her gallery where our images are. I'm afraid I wasn't as polite as you ;-)

He, he, I don't know. I haven't had very many images stolen, so I guess I'm not quite as energetic in my comments, not yet at least :))))

This woman (Faye) is really something else.

There is an upside to taking crappy photos. I don't have to worry about people stealing my stuff.

What you do with your real camera?

Wonder if suggesting to those sites admins, to cut off her IP address. Save themselves some headaches and lawsuits.

Sounds good to me. I've incorporated your text into the next mail I'm sending to the admins over there.
This is the 12th image of mine (I know of) that she's presented as hers.

Once again I only wanted to let you know that she is still posting under a new name. There has been a lot of controversy on Webshots about photo theft lately. They will usually remove them right away you have to flag the photo and leave your info on the form. So you have to have a membership to Webshots, but like here you can do a free one. The only way to let others know the person is a thief is to leave a message on their guestbook, but even those can be erased by the member.

I actually used my real information to join this site because I don't like dishonesty. I could have used a fake persona & probably should have. I like that this site asked you to swear you have no other ID's on this site, it makes it seem more likely that members are who they say they are.

There are so many people on Webshots that truly believe that Faye has been undergoing Chemo & passed away that I didn't want them to think I would besmirch her name. They have a tendency to rally round and attack people that try to expose their friends as thieves!

I just looked at the flower images at: //www.care2.com/c2c/photos/view/246/626150778/Fantasy_Flowers_001/00122.gif.html (false owner - Faye M) and some of her images even have copyright symbols by the true owners! #1 is by "Susie", #3 by 3gold.com!

I just got a mail from photozu.com saying they'd temporarily banned maf04 and would be taking my image down.

I checked maf04s gallery and ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/user_id/5112.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/user_id/5112.gif', '/') + 1) . ' ursula image isn't there any more. Seems like we're getting somewhere at last.

I should not have said "her" images - sorry.

This issue is a BIG one for me because as an artist/designer, I have had my work stolen too. It is worse than being robbed. Way worse :(

So it seems. That's good!
