False Facebook account

Someone created a facebook account pretending to be me. It is NOT me.

This facebook account: www.facebook.com/pages/Samuel-… is not mine.

I never created a facebook to share what I do. I only do it here, on DeviantArt exclusively.

So if you are 'friends' with this impostor I'm sorry to tell you that you've been fooled.

I'm sorry if he/she, while impersonating me, offended you in any way.

You can help by reporting this to facebook so they can take appropriate action.

If this is only a 'fan' page, I'm sorry, but it should say so ON such page.

I just checked the page again and all the photos are gone! It seems they have stopped their evil ways, at least for now.

It's not an imposter. The description of the page says that it is a fan page for you and has a link to your Deviantart page.
However, if you don't want anyone having fan page for you, Facebook might remove the page but you have to pester them a lot before they will do it

He/she was impersonating me, when people started reporting it they wrote 'fan page' in very small letters. They also censored all comments of people warning them to disable the page or clearly and visibly state it is a fan page, and they are ignoring all my messages. So that is very dishonest of them.

Oh dear :'(
I'm very sorry to hear that this is happening to you.
After all, you are honestly my absolute favourite artist! I adore your works. It's a great shame that people want to take the glory away from you!

Wow! I cant believe that it hasnt been removed yet as I thought facebook was on top of these things! I'm not on facebook so it won't let me report it but I see you have alot of support already. Hopefully this will be enough to get them to shut it down :fingerscrossed:

You're welcome, Sam. I see that it hasn't been taken down yet. :( I'm surprised as I thought FB was on top of things like this. :no:

Facebook only cared about removing the photos and not the actual user.. That's why I don't like them.

That doesn't look like a fan page to me...I didn't see "fan" on it, except in really tiny print. It looks like someone is trying to impersonate VianaArts and present it as though the Facebook page-owner is the actual artist--from my point of view. I reported it.

Thank you for your support. They only added the microscopic 'fan page' after people started reporting it. Now they censored all comments.

Even though he corrected it as a fan page, it still gives the impression that the person who made the page is the artist. If I didn't read about it being a false account here, I might not have known. A lot of people seem to think that the art belongs to him.

In his description he says"It takes me forever to do my works. The only thing that makes me keep going is my love for what I do and the ambition to go further and further. Ballpoint pens are as underestimated as they are a powerful medium."
So it's not a fan page, as he claims it to be. He is pretending it's his own work.

So I think the page should be taken down.
And so I shall report it!
Now. How do I go about doing this?

Acho que era pra ser somente uma fan page, mas ainda assim a pessoa que criou deveria ter pedido permissão diretamente a ti.

Eles agora escreveram lá 'fan page' mas em letras muito pequenas. No inicio não dizia nada disso e a pessoa em questão estava mesmo a fazer-se passar por mim.

Nossa, que chato. Mesmo dizendo agora que é fan page, como eles não te pediram permissão para criar a página, muito menos para postar teu trabalho lá, tu ainda tens o direito de solicitar a remoção da página. Não denunciei ainda porque gostaria de saber tua opinião primeiro...

Pode denunciar se quiser. A pessoa em questão ainda não me disse nem pediu nada. E censurar os comentários não me parece correto, parece ainda mais suspeito. Mas os comentários nas fotos ainda estão disponíveis.

A pessoa censurou os comentários só depois que foi descoberta?

It now says (if it didn't before) in tiny print that its a fan page--but it needs to be clearer....

Yes it does. They deleted all the comments too... They want to suppress critics. But that does not stop people from keep reporting it until they make it clearer it is a fan page.

My comment was deleted as soon as it was posted! I was always told that imitation was the highest form of flattery, but there is a big difference between using someone's work as reference material and pretending that is is your own.

You can still report it and comment on the pictures. We must keep pressure. I also reported it to facebook and they are working on it, but it is very very hard to negotiate with facebook, they often completely ignore copyrights and personal rights, it's pathetic.

I saw some of your work in the news not too long ago, under 'amazing ballpoint artists' or something, and I honestly don't know who they credited but I sure hope it wasn't this guy. Hopefully they'll shut him down fast since people are reporting it. Then again, it does link back to here, giving tons of people on fb access to you who didn't know you before.

They corrected the page. It now says: 'fan page'. Because previously it was an impersonation page. I'm sure their purpose wasn't to cause any harm.
