Last week when I was having issues and noticed my twitter account was deleted I also tweeted that someone had registered the account shoemoneymedia impersonating me and that it was NOT me.
I got a email shortly after that post from Jeff Hood aka HoodMonkey which had the passwords for the shoemoneymedia twitter account and also the shoemoney friendfeed account.
Jeff had asked me about a week earlier how much I would pay for the friendfeed account and I said probably not much because its pretty easy to get these accounts if you want them from the company owner especially when you have registered trademarks like we do.
Reguardless though it was pretty awesome of Jeff to just send me the email with the account passwords.
Then a friend emailed me and said Jeff’s infatuation with “shoemoney” goes way beyond just registering social accounts and impersonating me… They showed me this website where Jeff has photo shopped my face onto a girls body with pigtails. He said Jeff also has photoshopped several other pictures of me in woman’s clothing.
I actually had always pictured myself as a blond but whatever. I guess Jeff has always pictured me as a brunette?
There are some fans out there that you are glad to have met and there are some out there that make you wonder if they will find you, cut your head off and make love to your headless body. I try to avoid the later.
