Helen Jones

Escort identitiy theft

74 posts in this topic

Ive just discovered Its happened to me! ( I wrote a longer post but it vanished :o)

She pretends to be me, has no website but uses a phone number and similar email address, Works in Manchester and Leeds. Uses my domain name phrase in her adverts and has a name very similar to mine with just 1 extra letter. She also says ..."my friends call me Ellie" A phrase I use often in advertising.

Ive been emailed by a webmaster who thought it was me asking why my(her) emails were bouncing! which is how I discovered her.

My main worry is her using my identity to get clients and something going wrong and I get the blame when they or the authorites come looking for her amatuer antics!

Also at stake is my hard earned reputation.

Anyway Im dealing with it right now but has this happened to anyone else? Have any men thought they were seeing Miss X of London and got miss X of Lundon

Have you god forbid seen this woman who pretends to be me? You'd know it wasnt me when she arrived I hope! She has a more ample body shape than I do.

Where do webmasters stand on this issue, when theres an obvious attempt to decieve people.

Thankyou... The real thing.

What a b*gger, Helen! Have a large dollop of sympathy, and my best wishes for a speedy resol;ution to this gross impropriety.

As far as I know, I've not seen anyone purporting to be someone else.

Different to your scenario but still theft/misuse is Linzi D of MK is/was advertised on a Party site as someone else using her own pictures off her own site, this has been going on for a year or so. Despite asking many times the owner wouldnt take the pictures down. She told me she has tried everything. I advised her to PM Galahad to inform him as this provider continues to advertise on the Announcements Board misleading and lying to punters. No idea whether she did or not but the provider still advertises on Pnet. I hope your able to get this sorted more successfully than Linzi.

I think a similar thing happened to MK Bonnie. Someone else was calling themself the same name. Whether it was deliberate or not, only the two Bonnies will know.

Hope you get this sorted soon. I have a friend that this happened to about a year ago, copied her details word for word. I know how stressed out she got about it, so can imagine how it must be making you feel

I may be confusing things but I thought it was an unintentional coincidence (or poor research) but that the two Bonnies got in touch with each other and even talked about working as a duo occasionally.

If so, nothing like the somewhat sinister and very deliberate wholesale impersonation of some one with a top reputation such as the Helen Jones and Linzi D cases.

Just for the record, I checked back and the last post you had deleted was Mid October 2009 so what do you think happened to the "longer post"?

If you give us further details by PM, maybe we can help you find it?

Only yesterday I discovered an 'the other site' profile using the photos of not one but two well-known WGs from here.

Naturally I have notified the girls in question.

Isn't Rhia Charles meant to be very knowledgeable about copyright issues in this industry? You might consider giving her a shout.

AFAIR she has successfully pursued quite a few and has also excellent info on how to prevent it in the first place.

There are around 10 escorts on PlatinumSelect.com using my 'Me' website spiel. I'm more than pissed off that they also have a profile for me without permission and some of the stuff stated puts me in a position of being brought to the attention of the Trading Standards.

I had the same with those shysters, a Client told me I was on there, with a dodgy phone number. I sent a very terse email though and it was removed within 24 hours.. It's not the first time, some woman was using old pics of mine from about 5 years ago.. again threatened legal action and she took em down. Silly tart, someone did actually go and see her she was NOTHING like me and the client left and told her he knew she was not me as he had met me before at a party and alerted me to her fraud.

I have heard of this happening quite a few times but thankfully its not happened to me ;)

If it did then I would email whoever first asking them to remove my pics or whatever they were using or copying and then no idea what I'd do next :o

Please let me have all the details and I will put her on the No-Reports list, along with any other websites I can trace back to the same webmaster.

Fraudsters like that give everyone a bad name.

Sorry I should have made it clear. My post dissappeared due to my error after writing it and before submitting it.

I dont think its a copyright issue. Its more deception, but because of the extra letter, and the fact that the phrases Classyblonde (as in my domain name) and the "My Friends call me etc etc " are not copyrighted then its a case of buyer beware. I don't think she is actually doing anything illegal but rather questionable in any business.

I'm sure you couldnt get away with selling Zas washing powder in the same font and colour packet as Daz lol.

One good thing is that the webmaster says her email address is bouncing enquiries so maybe shes moved on !

OK thanks.

I do that sometimes too and I feel like kicking myself at the time as I always make the same error.

Not sure what you mean by "tried " lol. I haven't seen an American in years. If you mean he tried to get in touch with me then my phone was probably off. If he says he saw me then has most probably seen this woman instead.

Thanks for letting me know.

Hmmm thanks for my messages guys, have message that site and the skanky bitch off there that has nicked my photos. This Essex girl is really really mad, Surely she could have nicked photos from someone hotter than me. I am in the mood to blow off steam. Just wrote a funny blog to unleash a little bit.

Erotic Babe XXX you are a fraud!!! Oh and have pissed the wrong person off.
