So I get this email this morning, which, I believe is a fraud situation and I did NOT click on any of the links. It said:
There is a website called Kongregate where a young child has been using the screen name "Abby_Welker"
and 'Anoks", using your pictures and going as you. This child has been going into chat rooms spewing profanity which I feel if people were to look up her 'names', would bring up your site AND wrongfully judge you. Normally I dont care too much if people do this, but I see you as a responsible mother to 4 children, and I figure its your choice on what to do.
I have included screen shots of the accounts, and the urls to reach them.
Sure enough--she gave me 2 screen shots with MY picture and MY name--but it's not my account. And---creepy---she knew that I have 4 children. (if 'she' is a 'she'. 'She' is probably a creepy, pervert, dirty old man) I know it's not a secret that I have kids, but it's still creepy.
So rather than click on the links, I type it up myself: and I find this profile - using my NAME and MY PICTURE. ???!!! (at least they think I can pass off as a 19-year-old!)
I go to send them a personal message, a scathing "get my #$%@ face and #%@% name off your %#%^@ account!!!" kind of a message, but, of course, I have to SIGN UP with them. Scam.
I'm being scammed on two sides and if I knew who to report this to, I would. Don't worry--I'm definitely looking it up today and going to somehow get it taken care of. To say that I'm upset would be an understatement. If any of you know how to report/fix/correct this problem, I'd appreciate any info.
In the meantime....I'm probably going to remove every photo of mine from my sites. This is just over-the-top dishonest and creepy.
