    I'm sure many of you have experienced the same thing. I'm being contacted by members of this site and other regarding my photos. It seems as though someone is using my image and claiming to be me, via Craigslist postings, Match.com profiles, and even here on RealJock.

    What recourse is available? I would love to stop this/these person(s), but I'm not sure how.

    Grr! This concerns me a great deal, as I must now worry about parent's of my students seeing my picture on an inappropriate website. This could spurn additional problems.

    I'd contact the websites admins immediately.

    You could also 'out' the perpetrator, on those websites and this one.

    Watermarking your photos also helps so it wont happen again. It will also deter people from trying to snatch your photos.


    The only other thing I can say is report the people.

    Good luck.
