identity theft

Sorry to break the news, but you did not report the person behind that blog. Instead, you reported me. And I am still suffering the consequences.

I did not run that blog. Yes, they used my image. All my pictures from Facebook and Instagram, my statuses, even the captions. And then interspersed them with animal abuse images, fantasies about beastiality, other fucking disgusting sentiments.

You people found my Facebook, where I listed my wildlife rescue group. You didn’t think, for a moment, that it was odd that none of these abuse fantasies appeared on Facebook. A girl who was apparently willing to put her face, her location, the names of her family her local fucking vet clinic on her zoophilic Tumblr page, strangely had none of these thoughts on a just-as-public Facebook page.

Not one single person thought, “This is a bit odd, maybe I should reach out to this person just to confirm that it’s them.”

You people, high on some fantastical idea of justice, called the authorities. And I did not even know about the existence of the blog until the RSPCA showed up on my doorstep one night.

THEY, thankfully, had the sense to believe me. As soon as they showed me the page and I broke down in tears, they got the idea. So they told me to go to the police. The police palmed me off to ACORN (a cybercrime body) who dismissed the case because “nobody in the images was under the age of 18.”

Meanwhile, Tumblr had taken the page down, only for it to resurface again last year.

I then pursued a civil case. Emailed lawyers in my local city. They advised me only to take it to Tumblr, who shut down the page a second time. No further action was taken.

I never received another call from wildlife rescue because I was unable to prove that I did not run this disgusting blog. Wildlife is my biggest passion in the world and I may never work in that industry until I can clear my name.

So I messaged this page - report-a-predator. They told me to prove it - fair enough. So I sent them EVERYTHING. The screenshots, my emails to ACORN and SAPOL and Tumblr and the lawyers. They did not respond. I emailed them again, begging them to clear my name. They did not respond.

I am furious. I am fucking enraged that this post even still exists on their page, because the actions of this so-called “justice group” has directly impacted the life of an innocent person and they will do nothing to acknowledge it. Not even respond to a simple email. Not even take down the incriminating post.

I know my blog is tiny, I know nobody follows it, I know this will probably never be seen. But I am not going to be silent.

If you’re ever caught up in a whirlwind of pseudo-justice, maybe check the facts first.

IMPORTANT PSA!

My friend @chicasuperkiller​ has been harassed the last couple days by one (or more individuals) And even started attacking her friends. They have been constantly recreating new accounts after she’s blocked them, just for the sole purpose of harassing and sending hate to her.

Proof (the asks sent by rexa166, chicadicklover, and chicapsychokillerxd):

As you can see, they’re a very awful person, and EXTREMELY Panphobic. Even attacking @memerie  for being involved with Chica and being Pan.

The harrassments were bad enough, but now, they’re escalated to identity theft.

THIS USER IS NOT @chicasuperkiller!! NOTICE THE EXTRA ‘L’ IN KILLER. THIS PERSON IS CLAIMING TO BE CHICA AND ACCUSING HER OF STEALING HER OWN ART! THEY ARE USING HER IDENTITY TO ACCUSE HER OF STEALING AND TO CAUSE FURTHER HARM!

REPORT @chicasuperkilller! They are stealing Chica’s identity and accusing her of art theft (Chica has shown many of her art on Discord before she ever posted it online, therefore, this person is a fake and a liar)

Chica’s already had enough shit to deal with lately, and already has enough problems, but these users (or one user, multiple accounts) are making it worse. 

PLEASE REPORT THEM!! THIS IS HARASSMENT AND SHOULD NOT BE TOLERATED!!! THEY ARE ATTACKING SOMEONE WHO DIDN’T DO ANYTHING WRONG TO THEM IN THE FIRST PLACE!!

A public response

Firstly I want to thank Meg for getting my message out; that never would have happened if not for her. And another huge thanks to my friends at Tickld for their support, which honestly took me completely aback - I didn’t think anyone there remembered me.

When I initially posted I was hoping for two things: the post taken down, and an apology. I fully acknowledge that @report-a-predator​ has removed the post and thank them for that much.

As for the apology …

PSA: DO NOT TALK OR ENGAGE WITH THIS MAN - SCAM/HARRASSMENT ALERT 

Subject Mark Baumgardt has been messaging privately over Facebook through his personal account, trying to convince users that he has sensitive information about them that they need to know urgently (i.e. school records, work location, partner’s contact info). He will provide enough proof to convince you he has access to your private information, and then he will offer the information only in exchange of intercourse and/or sexual favors, through harassment, and/or potential blackmail. He has multiple social media accounts under the same name that he uses for his advantage. He is also likely to be on Tumblr or Instagram under different usernames to access private information.  

Other names used in social media: 
- Mark Allan/Anthony Baumgardt
- Mark D. Baumgardt
- Marc Baumgard

Areas subject has frequently visited or has lived in: 

- FLORIDA: Oakland Park, Plantation, Fort Lauderdale
- OHIO: Bay Village, Westlake, North Royalton, Strongville, Cleveland
- WEST VIRGINIA: Charleston, Williamstown, Morgantown
- NORTH CAROLINA: Cane River

Start date of noticed suspicious activity: March 2016 - Present.

If you know people in the indicated areas, please let them know the subject is a potential identity thief.

*The information posted on this post is publicly accessible online, no private information on the subject has been forcibly obtained*

Today I received a response from the RSPCA. I appreciate that they replied to me given that their hands are effectively tied. But there is something very important for groups like report-a-predator and other vigilantes to take note of:

When it comes to blogs, your reports probably don’t do anything.

Over and over I was told that people from Tumblr reported me to the RSPCA. Fauna Rescue did as well, not knowing that it was a case of identity theft. But when it comes to cybercrime, especially on international forums with heavy user protection, it does nothing but damage someone’s reputation. Legislative bodies (including inspectors from the RSPCA) cannot pursue cases like these without a subpoena, which is hard to get without rock-hard evidence. There are exceptions. Yes. Not many.

Which isn’t reassuring to me, because it means I can’t work with the RSPCA on the matter, which would have actually been much easier (don’t get me wrong, I’m happy to know I’m not on file for something I didn’t do). And it can’t be reassuring to the folks who made those reports.

Seriously? You told me you had no problem with me stealing my step-brother’s body… And you sure as hell didn’t act like you minded it last night when I let you suck his cock and feel up his body while I “pretended” to be him for you…

But now you’re gonna act like you have a problem with me “stealing” his car??

Dude.

How many times do I have to tell you? I’m Luke now. Everything that was his is mine. His perfect looks, his perfect body, his loaded bank account. And his car.

So did you want a ride….. or not?

5 Money Lessons Students Should (But Usually Don't) Learn In School

Students who have taken a class in personal finance are more likely to save, more likely to budget, and more likely to have invested money. They’re also more likely to learn:

1. The basics of budgeting.

2. The magic of compound interest.

3. The value of paying yourself first. 

4. The importance of using credit responsibly.

5. The danger of identity theft.

Here’s what else they could be missing on if they don’t learn financial literacy.

From Theron Shan’s Instagram Account:
look babe i didnt order those holos i swear!! (u know im a gif guy!) it was my future self who came back to try & ruin my image and i… um did he also set fire to that giant shipment of jackets labeled “theron’s updated wardrobe”? um… yes… but of course. that was totally future asshole. he’s totally set in his ways & surprisingly stuck in the past for a future doppelgänger & –i’m not getting off the couch anytime soon am i?

I really try to not possess students. I really do. But, fuck! When one like Steven Adkins comes along, how am I supposed to help myself?

Truth is, I’ve had my eye on him ever since his freshman year… Since then he’s only gotten bigger and cockier… He’s excelled at any sport he’s tried and I’ve watched him easily become the top jock, the king of the school. 

But now I’m Steven Adkins. I’m the top jock instead of the nerdy history teacher. I’ve got his body, his looks, his talent. His easy charisma and charm that’s made him so damn popular. I’ve got his easy life with rich parents and a full-ride scholarship to college all lined up…

I really try not to possess students, I really do. And when I do, I try not to stay inside of them for too long…

But I don’t think I can see myself leaving Steven any time soon…

From Theron Shan’s Instagram Account:
um hi admiral–did i happen to make any unauthorized purchases in the last uh however long its been since i left the base? wut??? he ordered how much holoporn??? and charged it to girl’s account??? fuk im gonna be sleeping on the couch for another month. lana can we turn around and go kick his ass again?

My roommate leaves for class about an hour before I do every day, which means I get an hour to sneak into his room and pretend to be him for a little while…

I start by grabbing something of his from his laundry pile… I usually try to find the last pair of underwear that he wore… and then I slip them on, feeling myself transform into a perfect duplicate of him as the fabric comes in contact with my body…

I look down to see his furry chest… his buff body…

I lay down in his bed and wrap myself up in his sheets, thinking about he had just been in the same spot only a couple hours before… 

I pretend to wake up as him, pretend to be surprised by finding myself in his body…

I try on his clothes, trying to duplicate some of the outfits I’ve seen him wear before…

I check his laptop and imagine what kinds of things I would post on his Facebook if I was really him…

I take selfies. Lots and lots of selfies. In all kinds of different poses. I put silly looks on his face, sexy looks… slutty looks… 

I try speaking with his voice, make him say how much he loves me pretending to be him, how much he would like for me to take over his life for good….

I jack off in his body using the bottle of lube he keeps in the drawer of his nightstand… I taste his cum and moan in his voice as I feel it slide down his throat…

And then, reluctantly, I turn back into myself. I take a few moments to clean up, and make sure everything is back where it’s supposed to be… And then I go about the rest of my day with a smile on my face.. just waiting for the next time that I can pretend to be him again.

6 easy tricks to keep protect yourself from identity theft

1. Be extra vigilant with your social security number.

Don’t give out your social security number unless it’s absolutely essential, and reduce the risk of misplacing your card by not carrying it around. Only offer up the numbers when 100% necessary. With access to your social security, an identity thief can cause a lot of financial trouble.

2. Shred all your papers.

Junk mail, bank statements and store ads all reveal different bits of information about your life. Piecing together your paper trail can disclose more than you’d imagine, so make it a common practice in your life to shred any papers that have your name, address, email, phone number or other sensitive personal information.

3. Stay on top of your passwords.

Those with online accounts should regularly change their passwords, in addition to making sure passwords are different for each site and opting for multi-factor authentication whenever possible. Equally important is ensuring passwords are unique and complex by using random combinations of letters, numbers and characters. Consider using a password manager to remember and create passwords.  

4. Dispose of gadgets properly.

Your laptops, computers, tablets and mobile devices contain a lot of personal information, so it is important to wipe them clean before discarding them. According to the Federal Trade Commission, people should overwrite, delete or physically destroy their hard drive prior to disposal. Similarly, personal information on mobile phones should be deleted before devices are discarded.

5. Check your social media privacy settings.

If you’re active on social media and not wary of your privacy settings, then you can accidentally give out more information than you realize. Check all your social media platforms — including those you are no longer active on — to see what information you have shared, who can see them and if you have any strangers in your direct circle. Depending on how private your account is, consider keeping things like addresses and birth dates off of social media.

6. Secure your internet and Wi-Fi.

The FTC recommends securing your wireless network at home and making sure information on your network is encrypted. This step scrambles information so hackers can’t get a front-row seat of what’s going on in your network. When in public, make sure you’re connecting to secure and encrypted Wi-Fi networks. It’s also a good habit to not do any financial transactions while on a public network. Read more

Internet Security Tip: One of the more common vectors of personal data leakage is funny cat pictures.

Folks are typically relatively circumspect with pictures of themselves, but not with pictures of their pets - after all, it’s highly unlikely that anyone would be able to personally identify a random cat from a smartphone snapshot. However, most cats are photographed inside their owners’ homes, and unless explicitly instructed otherwise, most smartphones cameras will tag photographs with metadata that includes the GPS coordinates at which each photo was taken. This data is often accurate enough to pinpoint a particular street address.

So guess what? Unless you’ve been sanitising your image metadata, there’s a good chance that anyone who’s seen your funny cat pictures can find out where your cat lives - and, by extension, where you live.
