    If they are so great why is it I have never heard two hoots about their cyberspace heroics before this week?

      All I know is someone there reprinted a portion of a hub without permission. It doesn't even have the full article yet people are commenting saying how great this woman's blogs are...

    I had a hub stolen from a Fanbox page also. I looked for it in SERPS and couldn't find it. It's a Facebook widget, I believe. I found it from an image. I commented on the article with a link to the original stating that I was the original author.
    I couldn't figure out how to report it because it's not a 'real' site, it's connected to Facebook.

    UW, maybe it was the same person.

      Seems like the original FanBox is owned by and Facebook has something of the same name.

      The site I am referencing is the original is the whatever.  Their PR sounds good.  Had a similar history to Fb in fact.  But why is it so new to us here?  To me?

      They use an international phone text payment system, and invented many apps, they claim.

        Yes, they are owned by I don't know too much about it, but do know they use a social media widget on Facebook. Sometimes those apps spam your friends if you sign up and use it via FB. I don't know the revenue side of it. I wasn't very happy when I saw a user copy my hub, word for word, images and titles.

          Yea!  The anti-spam site I linked in a post on this thread says when you sign up you give them your email address and password, as well as permission to use your info.  That's dangerous.
