Never have I imagined I’d have to write this post, because I had no idea people did things like this. I’m shocked, angry and upset. It has come to my attention that someone has been getting in touch with various adult retailers and manufacturers, asking for review products, giving out my blog address and claiming to be me. At least 4 companies have been contacted so far, all of them UK based. I’ve tried to contact this person to ask them to stop, but to no avail.
See that message? First of all, I always take the time to research each individual company and wouldn’t even dream of sending a generic email like that. Second of all – look at all those mistakes! If companies are willing to send out items to people who send messages like that, then I am genuinely worried.
I have no idea what this person is trying to achieve. I guess their aim is to get free sex toys, and they think that using my blog is the best way to achieve that. Maybe I should be flattered that they chose my blog? That still doesn’t change the fact that I work hard to make this site what it is and I don’t appreciate someone using my work to lie to other people.
I wanted to take the time to reassure you all that I only use one email address when dealing with companies – it is listed in the contact tab on my blog. There is a another email address I’ve used, one I had before I made my blog specific email account but the companies I’ve contacted using that address have all been notified of the situation.
Lucy, if you’re reading this – please stop. You’re not going to get very far doing what you’re doing because the companies you’ve contacted so far have all let me know what you’re up to. Just stop.
I’d like to urge retailers & manufacturers to be careful when sending out tester products to bloggers and reviewers. Please, try to take a look at their blog and make sure you have the right person so that you don’t send out a product to some random stranger and end up with no review. If the message seems suspicious at all, try to contact the relevant blogger to clear things up.
I really hope this doesn’t happen to anyone else, I wish there was more we could do to ensure this doesn’t happen again. I’ve heard of bloggers having their content stolen and posted elsewhere, but I don’t think this has ever happened before. Just another thing for sex bloggers to worry about, eh.
