When another Model has literally copied and pasted the WHOLE of your profile onto hers..

Hey all 

So as the title suggests.. a Photographer on here pointed me to a models profile..i, clicked onto the Models profile.. not naming any names yet as i'm sure she'll be reading this right now as i already messaged her and she's online but not opened my message.. anyhoo, noticed she had literally copied and pasted the WHOLE of my profile, literally EVERYTHING onto her page, and just amended bits like her name etc.. 

Not actually a law* against this BUT seriously, am actually shocked someone who claims their ''Professional'' can't be bothered to write her own profile notes and too lazy to use her imagination and write her own up.. actual serious cheek... :-/ 

Photographers / Models - if another Photographer or Model did this to you, apart from being cheesed off would you name and shame on your profile?

As this alleged plagiarism is neither deception nor identity theft no laws are being broken
Hopefully the parties concerned will resolve this privately and amicably

well its definitely not me lol how can you actually do that though, unless your identical twins who do all the same things lol, your profile is meant to be personal to you, your experience and what you offer

Hi Jo Surely the mods will suspend her account until she comes up with a true account of herself? Gaz

Hehe nope not you :P I know, i was just amazed how someone would even do that, she probably doesn't even speak the same way i would do in my notes, it just makes no sense as it's not personal to her now, it's my words on her profile lol

If any of the notes relate to things you have done / appeared in, that would mean she has misrepresented herself and you could report the profile as a lie? For example, has she said she was miss fast car 2010 winner as well - you cannot both have been LOL

Ah, just double checked, shes had like 2 publications, but nothing to what iv'e had, she hasn't said she was Miss Fast Car or anything like that, but everything else is totally copied except her levels and tattoos, iv'e just reported her to the mods, it's not right that you just copy the whole of someones profile, even down to the fact about me being 100% natural, skin clear and slightly olive etc.. jeeze :-/

haha, there will only ever be one Miss Fast Car 2010 :P

You may want to consider removing your line that says "imitation is the best form of flattery" - Maybe the offender took this too literally

Posted 21 Jan 2013
Haha! Yep, i think she clearly did .. its just beyond ridiculous lol, she's not doing herself any favours at all.

Interestingly she comes above you in Google when you search for;
"My body is all natural with no fakery or modifications, and a slim and toned"
which should not be the case when you are the originator.

I thought you were exagerrating tbh. But no, It is word for word the same bar the achievments. Haha. I have nothing useful to add though, Sorry

Ian - I searched a different term and Jo came up first, so i don't think that's a reliable theory.
