Fakers On The Internet

2 comments
I've had people copy my profile/content & stole my photos on my old blogs, Friendster, Facebook, & now Instagram along the years. But I've never really made any of the past cases a big deal bcos every time I find out, they delete everything (that's if I'm lucky). I'll first msg that person to take the account down or remove copied parts. Then I'll publicize the account's link on my profiles & ask people to report the faker. If I'm unlucky tho, the person finds a way to get away w it & continue to impose as ME, without me being able to track him/her anymore. What happens next is beyond my control.

If it's a blog

1) Le faker changes the URL, so I won't be able to track him/her anymore.

2) Le faker deletes blog/all posts & content *yes!*

3) I've once had someone put i-love-raine-forever as their blog URL & it creeped me out very much. In it are all my favorite songs & my very own written quotes that were posted on various social media platforms. She practically collected my online details & claimed to “coincidentally” developed a “common interest” too. But.. I don't remember having a twin...

If it's Friendster

1) Le faker usually just blocks me -_- Oh, & pretty quickly too, proves how active they are lol. But I'd still manage to get my friends to spam report the account & it'll be taken down within days. I can still remember the “this person is an imposter” option that you can choose when you decide to report an account.

2) Le faker ignores my msg but takes down everything.

If it's Facebook

Kinda like the same situation as Friendster. I really wonder what they're trying to do. I've received info from friends before that the accounts were privately msging random people, acting as me -_- I don't get it. Why?

If it's Instagram

Well, I didn't know that it'll be this difficult. Bcos if it was Friendster or Facebook, the fakers can't change the default URL. I'd still be able to find them. But Instagram, on the other hand, they can change the username as many times as they want! Making it hard fr me to get people to keep reporting them. It's starting to annoy me. Hence, this blog post.

I've been reporting this particular account fr over a week & NTG has been done.

Untitled

How I found out was from a comment from a follower. Stalked the faker fr a bit before clicking into my notifications.

Untitled

Then I saw.. that he/she had the cheek to alrdy have followed me!

Untitled

@official_rainelee? Omg no. Just no. Copied my profile too zz. & almost 2k followers?! Told a friend immediately & she commented on one of the photos telling the faker to delete everything.

Untitled

The faker then proceeded to unfollow me. Spot the nofication, it's gone. & yes I can't believe the account is super active. Sees everything in matter of minutes.

Untitled

My turn to try to comment. Realized that I got blocked. & I also just realize that I ask silly question until so naive so polite. Like a little girl -_-

Untitled

Seriously? Same caption as my original.



This too.

Untitled

Upon being “noticed”, le faker changed the username. Another friend tweeted me that it has been changed to raine_goh. Raine GOH?! Okay..

I was happy cos I initially thought that the account has been deleted or the imposter gave it up. Till I found out that I became Raine Goh (;-_-) Anyway I still haven't feel very mad yet cos the account is posting only my pictures, I thought to myself no harm I guess.

Different captions this time around. So I thought, even if Instagram was taking awhile to close down the account, ntg VERY bad could happen, right? Boy, was I so wrong.

Read on to know how angry I am right nao!!!

Untitled

Continued to spam so many of my photos.

Untitled

Blocked me again.

Untitled

Changed username to the latest RAINE_RAIINE ( ≧Д≦)

Dear FB friends, Insta friends, blog friends, all my friends, please help me report this account!! Or if you have any suggestion on how to get it taken down do let me know!

It is getting serious bcos..

Untitled

The 4 photos that I censored are explicit photos -_- Which is not me of course but I'm very sure the faker intends to make people misunderstand that it's me.

As you can see, I am still able to view the faker's profile although he/she has blocked me. I just need to go to my phone's browser (the faker's account is public. Which sucks)

Untitled

But what if people think that it's really me?! Cannot see face one, can only see behind. Sumore hair longlong. Purposely one isit? & all the photos received tons of comments. Urghhh.

Untitled

This part. I really CAN'T STAND. Faker asking people to direct message him/her. What is he/she trying to do? What is he gna say to them?? Sumore acting as me & finding those type of photos of girls w features that are similar to mine. Probably in order to be convincing huh. I'm so upset about this. I also found out lastly that this person is a Malay? I've no idea what's “lyn aq” but “siapa mau” means “who wants”.

I hate it. Just to clarify that the account has ntg to do w me & those pictures are not me.

Dear FB friends, Insta friends, blog friends, all my friends, once again please help me report this account!!! I've never experienced an admin take such a long time to look into a certain matter before. Up until Instagram. Previously I always got to handle things. But not this time around. Sigh.

UPDATE! 12/08:

Untitled

The imposter's Instagram account has been removed today. Like finally, yay! Thanks, Instagram (:

  1. Babe, 'lyn aq' probably means 'layan aku'. Slang and all that. I reported the user! Don't know what they're trying to achieve by creating this fake account :( I hope Instagram admin kills off the account soon.
