A Troll Is Using My Name & Email Address

Yesterday was supposed to be a very good day for me. I got a new android phone and was excitedly checking my emails on it, until I saw a follow-up comments notification email from Musings Of A Muse. I clicked on it and read the replies from Muse to this  person"Cynthia". I hadn't left any comment in the blog, so I realized this person had used my name & email address. I couldn't speak for a while. I was too shocked!

I went to the website and wrote a comment telling Muse that the other person isn't me. Muse mentioned in a previous comment that this troll is using several other names too. She knows coz they're coming from the same IP address.

5 days or a week back, I received some abusive comments from a person using Muse's name & I also got another negative comment on the same day (it's obvious now that it was the same person), and she used the name Michelle with a link to Michelle Phan's website. I deleted those comments immediately, coz common sense told me these people don't have that kind of time.

I'm here minding my own business and this happens. This low-life maggot.

I have no idea how she could go to such lengths, but I've changed all my passwords for now.

I felt I needed to let all of you bloggers know about this, coz God only knows how many identities this coward is using to spread hate. So, if you get comments like this, please let me know. I'm taking this very seriously & will get to the bottom of it.

♥ Cynthia Z ^.^

  10. That is so sad, some ppl are just so destructive in nature.. Jealous, insecure idiots with too much free time.

    Why don't you ask the muse for the IP & the city where this is coming from? She'll probably have it coz the comments are still there on her blog.. Sick, just sick..

    Tc dear, we're with you! :D

  11. I can totally understand what u're goin through CZ!..coz the other day, i just stumbled upon a relatively new comer's blog, following her link jlt through some website where she had left her comment and a backlink to her latest post and was thoroughly shocked to find out that this girl had had the audacity to simply copy the heading of my 1st post and also my writing style! I let her off that time..pretty unsure whether to confront her or not coz under any circumstances, I had that one posted comfortably a month b4 her's! But I c her doin iit one more time, I'll have her by her throat! x( And that's too much of a coincidence that some creep genuinely gets ur style of writing and content idea too!! Damn that beep x(

  22. Would it be illegal to share their IP address? You know - for the same of keeping out a watchful eye?

    That's absolutely horrible. Isn't there enough hate in the community without spreading more?

    ReplyDelete
  23. People will always be out there doing horrid things, you can't let it get you down!

  31. Hi! I was just going through your post and I'm thinking... maybe if you know the offender's ip address, you can block her from accessing your website. It might sound a bit harsh. But sometimes we just have to follow Teddy Roosevelt's words to the T! :D

    Then again, you might already have done something about it. In that case, yay! If not, I don't know if this helps, but do check it out.

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
