Cyber Stalker

I recently found out that someone has been plagiarizing my blog and stealing my photos from Instagram. The sick person created a Tumblr and Instgram account pretending to be me and shared my story as well as many details of my personal life. I do not know who the person was or how they were caught. It has caused an uproar on Tumblr because they had numerous followers, many more than I have. I woke up Friday to several emails and Instgram comments saying someone had done this. I've never felt more violated in my life. My husband and I are trying to recover from this horrible news and try to find out the best course of action for stopping this cyber stalker. The stalker's Instagram and Tumblr were deactivated since the time they were caught, so I didn't get to see everything they said. Since the Tumblr account was deactivated, I was able to recreate a Tumblr under the same name the stalker used in order to redirect people to my real site. I have no idea how to use Tumblr so I will not continue to use it. 

The support from complete strangers has been overwhelming. Many people have sent well wishes and helped to provide information regarding the situation. At this point I am unsure how I want to continue with my blogger and Instagram presence. Nothing is more important to me than keeping my family safe. I almost want to delete everything and disappear. 

If anyone has any further information regarding this horrible situation please contact me. Or if you know anything about stopping this stalker from doing this to me or another innocent person again, please let me know.

  1. I was one of the fake account's followers. I followed her both on tumblr and instagram and one of many who was disappointed to find out that it was a catfish all along. I recommend that you clear your social media accounts of anyone you don't know personally. Block any who may be carrying a grudge or resentment for whatever the reason. Or maybe someone who is just jealous of your happiness. Blog privately. Password protect your blog or where only people you control may see it. Internet is a scary place. There are some people who claimed they have actually text message this girl. If you really want to try to dig for it, you could try to ask for this information from those who spoke to her. I'm not sure what you would do with that information...For now, I'd be careful of what you post. Good luck to you and so sorry this happened to you!!

  2. I followed the fake account as well, and was also very saddened to find out it was all fake. I felt so stupid. The person didn't even really make anything up..they used everything from this blog. Even talked about your thyroid disease and Mormon religon. Had wedding photis, engagment video, and gender reveal videos. One thing they wrote about that I'm not sure was on here was that they fell in a grocery store while pregnant with the twins. If you really fell in the store and didn't blog about it maybe the person knows you personally. Or maybe that was something they maDE up...just trying to help. The faker also got another girls photos and photos of her son and her whole identity too....once again I feel fooled. I contacTed them on instagram to inform her...anyway . hope this helps a little bit. Wishing you and your family well!

  4. I was one of her followers too. I was honestly SO shocked when I found out she was fake! But it's good that she was found out. I think it was because someone found your actual blog and posted it on Tumblr. As soon as that was revealed, she deleted. Just keep watermarking your photos like you are doing now, and I'm sure you'll be safe. :) We'll all definitely let you know if we see anyone else posing as you, anyway!
