Help me get this Facebook Hater off the Internet!

Just this week, I witnessed a vicious attack by a cyber-bully. It seems that the goal, from the very start, was to publicly humiliate this family. Luckily, it didn't take long for the victim to realize the Facebook page was a fake, but it was clear that someone was out to get them ... and they had no idea who it was.

This is how it went down:

First, the Bully made up a fake Facebook profile using photographs (of an incredibly beautiful woman) pulled from the internet.



S/he added a few photos:







Then the bully - who claims to be from Cleveland and lives in Columbus -  added people to create a friend list. Now since the victim lives the next town over, imagine my shock to see that a large number of the stalkers "friends" were people just outside of my social circle, meaning stalker and I had mutual friends in common -  45 of her 162 "friends", to be exact.


The next phase to this evil plan was for the stalker to start chatting-up some of these friends we have in common, strangers she said, and from a town she claimed to never heard of (even though she was following several from this small town, and were Facebook friends with 17 of them.)






I would say that this stalker bully is from Crooksville, or lives nearby.

So with that, she is conversing with a few folks on her friends list and then all of a sudden, what she's REALLY here to do comes to light:  It's all an attempt to bully someone - the stalker first starts with a broad, hateful comment that shows her ignorance and true intention:


 


 But that's not what she's REALLY here for. What this bully wants is to attack a specific person. And for the past month, all the lying and staging has her ready for her attack. And it's ugly.







The bully even shared a photo from the victims page of her and the baby, with the below comment.






Unfortunately, even though reported, the shared photo with the small child remains on the stalker bully's public Facebook page, as does the hateful comments obviously directed - and intended for - that one family. Facebook, as of yet, does not agree. I find this highly disturbing. Does Facebook even read the reports of harassment? And why isn't there more than a few boxes available for us to explain what the problem is? All they had to do was read the comments and see that a photo was used without permission and ridiculed!




I do wonder what Kara Tointon thinks about all of this. After all, it was her photographs that the bully used in their fake profile.






If the victim can't get them removed, and an anti-bully advocate (meaning me) can't get them removed, then perhaps Kara can.

Do me a favor friends and tweet this story over to Kara at    @ktointon

And if you have a moment, head over the this imposters FB page. If this crap is STILL on there, can you help me by reporting it? Maybe we need a mountain of them to get Facebooks attention.

Let's get this crap off of Facebook and let them know that an act of stalking, cyber-bullying and theft of intellectual property has occurred - and we need justice for this family!

Stay strong friends. Together we can make a difference.

Love,

Terri Jean

  1. Great work everyone! This site was reported multiple times to Facebook and eventually, it was taken down! I know that this may seem like a small issue, but to a young family, it was a BIG deal. I didn't even show you the messages, and they were even worse. They were too profane for me to post on here. But you rallied around those in need and made a difference! My appreciation goes out to all of you. Thank you so much. XOXO, TJ

  3. I was the one that commented. I did this so maybe this whack job would leave this poor girl alone. It's hard enough being a young mom without idiots.

  4. I reported the photo of that Mom with her baby and they reviewed and didn't remove it. I was furious! It asked me to review their decision and I told them it was unacceptable that they're letting a woman harass teen mother's!

  5. I don't know any of the people in this story but it made me so mad when I read it that I went, found the fake profile and reported it. I got notification that it wasn't removed but then this morning I got another saying it was removed. Now I can't even find the fake profile on Facebook anymore.

  6. I heard from the young girl that another fake profile popped up yesterday - and someone was trying to add a lot of her friends. She has no idea why someone is out to get her. I think the scary thing is, it's someone she most likely knows, but they are unknown to her. She can't defend herself against the bully, nor can she confront them. And I'm sure she's looking over her shoulder wondering who it could be. That's a lot of added stress for a new mother.
