Before you misuse any copyrighted property of Startup-nomad.com, think!
Warning: It came to my attention that an American-Asian woman is misusing my images for business fraud. I was alerted by the victim that my images are used to create a fake identity to deceive him. Usually, when I am alerted that my images are used for love scams or impersonation on Facebook or Instagram, I just report the account to shut it down within 1 business day. However, for serious crimes such as scamming for fraud, I take all necessary actions against the impersonator.
As many of us are aware of online scams and impersonation in the age of advanced technology and innovative social media platforms, it is inevitable that there will be mischief-makers taking advantage of technology to suit their own nefarious needs. Some steal photos of women on social media and blog to create fake accounts for love scam others are pretending to be another person online for whatever fraud and serious crime. Beware!
I don’t let an impersonator get away from this crime, after all, it would be an insult to my four-years of studies in law school and almost six years of experience in law. If I determine the impersonation is serious and alarming than a regular fake social media account, I don’t just lodge a police report. I will hunt you online! 🙂
My server is connected with my blog and all social media accounts. This means it reports the visitors’ IP address, proxy address, Google location, ISP, including your computer ID and mobile internet details. My online bot reports a suspicious browsing behaviour in my blog and as well as potential threats.
I will report your details including your locations, ISP and computer ID to the law enforcement in which FBIs are using when investigating a cybercrime. It will allow them to track and trace the suspect and within a few days or sometimes a month (if you are lucky), you will be caught regardless of where you relocate.
The perpetrator may be charged for cheating by personation under section 416 the Penal Code, where cheating is defined by section 415 of the Penal Code as an activity which:
“fraudulently or dishonestly induces the person so deceived to deliver any property to any person, or to consent that any person shall retain any property, or intentionally induces the person so deceived to do or omit to do anything which he would not do or omit to do if he were not so deceived, and which act or omission causes or is likely to cause damage or harm to any person in body, mind, reputation or property”
This means whether you will impersonate someone for small dishonesty of $20, medium fraud of $1,000 or large size fraud of $25,000 and more, the punishment is the same. The impersonator may be punishable with imprisonment up to 5 years, or a fine, or both. This law can be applied internationally by lodging a police report of your information.
Fight against fraud and online scammers:
Using cutting-edge technology, the transitional criminal operates with advanced sophistication and ruthless efficiency. Defrauded individuals or companies are further victimized by the myriad of social media platforms and channels accessible worldwide which escalates any crisis situation to a potential reputational calamity.
My response to impersonator/s, if any serious scam or alarming cases that require my attention, I will cooperate with the law enforcement for fraud, recovery, and investigations to get you and I will make sure you will be in jail.
I may look very sweet online but it is not about my physical appearance that you should be scared about, it is about my intellect, ability and my contacts who can help me to deal with complex cross-border commercial fraud, asset recovery, crime investigations and managing crisis situations, across a multitude of industries ranging from individuals, banking and finance.
Many people say, “See I told you don’t anyhow post things online” This is exactly what the impersonator intends to do – to create fears to enjoy the benefits of stealing information from others. However, if one takes necessary legal and technical actions against the impersonator the crime can be prevented.
I am not going to stop blogging or doing digital marketing just because there are two or three men or women pretending to be me online for serious fraud. I’m in the process of branding promotions for my startup before we launch it this year, hence, I won’t let anyone stop me from growing. I can only take precaution and take legal and technical actions against anyone who will misuse my information, my company, and identity.
So, please impersonate at your own risk.
