Beware: 'Jaffrey Bay' is Not Representing Me


I have recently been alerted to the fact that someone is using my professional head shot in a phishing scam under a fake Google Plus profile under the name "jaffrey bay." I have asked Google to remove this obviously fake profile, but so far all my attempts have been refused by Google. I am posting this here to announce that this profile and whatever phishing scam is associated with it is in no way connected to me. My image has been used without authorization and if you visit the profile in question, you will see that it is a very low resolution copy.

If you feel so inclined, you may report this profile as impersonating a celebrity. This seems to be the only option that allows you to do more than just block the offending profile. The screen shot below will show you how to do so.

For the full documentation of this issue, see this image which has also been sent to Google's profile support department.


Here is a copy of the email I received alerting me to the issue:



Hi Sue,
I stumbled upon your profile picture when looking for a free image editor. I was recently duped by a phishind [sic] scam. I thought I should inform you that your picture is being used in this scam. See the link below:

They use the name "jaffrey bay". I'm not sure what you can do about it, but I thought you ought to know. Please let me know if you have taken any action against it. I would like to know exactly who the culprit is.





Thank you for your support.

Google authority should take attempt to remove such uncertain incidents. Like you, many Google users have been suffering from such problems.They should follow the best writing service in order to make such errors corrected.Google plus profile usually represents one's identification, now I understand it could be wrong.
