    soni2006posted 7 years ago

    Today, I logged into my account and was surprised to see the fan mail of soni2009 who has used my profile pic on his profile. Actually, I became much more surprised when I checked out my url trackers where it was showing that soni2009 joined hubpages via my referral tracker on 11/15/2009.

    Here is soni2009's hubpages profile link:  http://hubpages.com/profile/soni2009

    Up until now, according to soni2009's hubtivity, he has asked some questions but has not created any hubs. The questions are:

    1.  Who will add my adsense account?

    2.  What is the achivement of sachin tendulkar in cricket?

    3.  What is your opinion about soni2009?

    4.  How the ranking of cricket team is determined?

    5.  How India is better than other countries?

    6.  Do you believe Ghosts? have you faced any real time experience?

    7.  What are the different types of suicides?

    8.  If a person becomes popular, will he be targeted to defame?

    9.  How many personailites can you see having similar faces?

    plus he has joined some more fan clubs namely; soni2009 became the fan of HubMerc, soni2009 became the fan of Edgeymon, soni2009 became the fan of reeltaulk, soni2009 became soni2006's fan and has left some fan mail which soni2006 has approved, then  soni2006 became the fan of soni2009 and has left him some fan mail which he has not yet approved.

    IMPORTANT NOTE:  SONI2006 and SONI2009 ARE BOTH DIFFERENT USERS WITH DIFFERENT IDENTITIES. I DO NOT KNOW WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF SONI2009 WHO JOINED HUBPAGES USING SONI2006'S PROFILE IMAGE, SO I REQUEST MY FANS TO PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT WHILE DOING ANY HUBTIVITY OR SHARING ANY IMPORTANT INFO LIKE COMMENTS OR ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS, CHECK THE USER NAMES.

    MY USERNAME IS soni2006 and not soni2009.

      Soni do u realise that there is a Summer Tan and products website that comes up on your Site...........??????????????????? It just did it twice, so its prob some form of spamming...... It has just click on an ad automatically... This can disable your account..........

        Hi Mandy, please let me know about it in detail. I am really worried about this. Also, tell me how it comes up on my site as I cannot see it over here.

          O.K. It is called Summer Tan it just popped up and then the Internet thingy came on that said cannot display this page. Then I realised it was chucking open websites. So I switched over as I guessed it was making use of somones clicks then there is this thing in the avator like a monkey with sorry on it. The web page is blue and yellow and looks like one of those cheapy we sell everything Sites.
          There is also something wrong with this page as all the other Forums jump to last reply this one makes you scroll through the lot.  I hadmy adsense disabled for illegal clicking,  I had had a similiar thing happen, with an auto clicker, I think the person, may have been someone that I gave too many details to.
          My fault
          Mandy.

    Soni, it's good that you're letting hubbers know this!

    Is it that your referral is overly inspired by you and your avatar? I wonder smile

      soni2006posted 7 years ago in reply to this

      Thanks a lot weblog. I do not know what is the case. I will send an email to soni2009 today to ask why he has used my profile image  which is my real pic in his profile. If at all, he says that he was inspired by me and did that for that reason, I will ask him that he should have took permission from me before doing this.

    Looks like you are popular already that a user dared to ride on your performance...

    1. soni2006 profile image47
      soni2006posted 7 years ago in reply to this

      I think you are right General because I am really worried about that, basically after reading these two questions which are very suspicious:

      8.  If a person becomes popular, will he be targeted to defame?

      9.  How many personailites can you see having similar faces?

        Dont worry there man, a copycat will never be given accolades... The original stuffs will always prevail...

          Thank you General. I am doing what I think is right to do and after reading all of your's comments, I think I am on the right track.

    I would report him to the team and see what they say. how weird Soni! Kinda creepy too. you've got a stalker....

    1. soni2006 profile image47
      soni2006posted 7 years ago in reply to this

      I agree mam but let's wait for the email response. It can be one of my friend or a known person trying to make fun of me or a real admirer, who knows, I am not sure of this because there has been no direct threat on me up until now.

      Plus I have asked him to remove my real pic from his profile. If he does that and there are no further issues, I will not report but if there is something serious, I will definitely report.

        Crazdwriterposted 7 years ago in reply to this

        Keep me posted on what happens. I want to know what he or she says about using your picture and all that.

        1. soni2006 profile image47
          soni2006posted 7 years ago in reply to this

          I will definitely do it. I will show it you plus also to every hubber because it can be done with someone else also. This will be an example for other people who are potentially trying to steal credits out of other's popularity.

            thanks for letting us know..TOTALLy creepy and totally lame that someone would try to do something like that to anyone. Sorry you had to be their target, Soni!

    Soni I really hope you will be able to resolve this issue. That is scary though. It would be a shame if all the hard work you've done is discredited by something like this. Thanks for giving us the heads up.

      Thanks a lot Veronica. I am glad that you are always there for the support.

    That can be a bit unnerving Soni - and using your pic is absolutely not on! Do hope you get this sorted out quickly!

    1. soni2006 profile image47
      soni2006posted 7 years ago in reply to this

      Yes Shalini, that's what I have written in the mail sent to soni2009 that using "username as "soni2009" is fine with me but using my profile pic is a potential harm to the work done by me" and I have asked the user to remove that pic immediately.

    soni2009posted 7 years ago

    sorry soni2006,

    just I saw your referral url and when i clicked registration page came..

    so i gave your id...

    just to join..

    nothing to do with your image.. (now i have replaced)..

    1. soni2006 profile image47
      soni2006posted 7 years ago in reply to this

      Thanks a lot soni2009 for changing that pic. As you have done it so early, I have not reported it to the hubpages team. Please tell us know who you are and why you used my pic in your profile page. Please always remember to never do that with anyone else's pic.

      As you are new to hubpages, I do not have any problem because mistakes are done by human beings and not by robots.

    That's scary... and very annoying.  I hope you can find a solution.  It is bad enough to have people copying our hubs, but having someone using your profile picture and your name (only changing one letter) is just too much!

        Soni2009, or has the issue now been resolved? It seems they've changed the profile picture now.

    retellectposted 7 years ago

    Soni, don't worry too much about him. If the team cancels his account then no worries. If they don't however, change your profile pic......if he keeps stealing it then that should be enough grounds to cancel his account.

    Keep us posted though, let us know what he says! smile
