I just wanted to make my readers aware that there is someone out there that is pretending to be me to get free products for review. I mean how low can a person be? Then, they have been telling PR companies that their house was burgled while they were away and therefore they cannot review the products. Seriously, like burglars want shampoo and foundation? I tweeted the situation yesterday after one of the PR girls noticed something suspicious when the address provided didn't match the one they had on record. Since yesterday 2 more PR companies have come forward to verify emails.
Bubblegarm@hotmail.co.uk is NOT me!
I only ever use firstname.lastname@example.org in conjunction with my blog.
If you are a PR company and have received an email from an impersonator please send me an email to email@example.com so I can forward your details to the police. It's so sad that someone would actually do this, but come on, did they seriously think they wouldn't get found out? How clever that they provide address details etc. all I can say is IDIOT and you are not going to get away with stealing my identity.
And a piece of advice to bloggers, make it clear on your blog what email you use and all others should be ignored as I dread to think who else this has happened to, let's stop fraud now!
