A few days ago, another friend has warned me about someone trying to impersonate me again.
Email address: email@example.com
Name: Kevin Jones
I supposed it's just a fake name since scammers won't be so stupid to let others know their real names. The email address is a free one, which anyone can easily get from gmx.com (similar to Gmail, Yahoo Mail, Hotmail). Therefore, the scammer can easily create another email address easily.
When my friend asked him for his agency, he simply stated my website.
Friends and followers who have been following me should know that I have never ever paid any model in my entire career. I'm also just a poor photographer and not a big businessman who's able to set up an agency yet. I'm very concerned about quality of work and thus I usually carry a lot of equipment along for shoot, and thus, I haven't planned for any overseas shoot yet.
Therefore, this scammer has simply chosen a wrong photographer to impersonate.
What he has been doing is he will find models online, pretends to offer them jobs and asks for video chat. Then, he will ask the victims to show him their naked bodies as part of the casting in order to qualify them for the job. I suppose he would ask for nude photos in some cases.
If you search his email address online, you can probably find out more stories about him.
I wonder if he's the same scammer who has done it via Instagram some time back.
