Angry More stolen work! (Aron Visuals)

I just wanted to let people know I found more of my work displayed by another retoucher as their own - complete with their watermark found here:
http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio...96930#22396921
and
http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio...96930#22396930

check this dude's portfolio here for your work:

What a pain!

Did you contact the Mods at MM?

yes, I'm in the process of having them taken down.
- seems they need some proof, so I'm handling that.

Thanks, Shift Studio.

What a low life. I wonder how many clients he's scammed using your work as a example of what he can do. To bad there wasn't some way to charge him with fraud.

Glad to hear you found out about it and you were able to address it. It always surprises me when i hear things like this. I don't know how people sleep at night doing these things.

That's just outrageous! Did you ask the MM mods why he's not getting banned completely?

As of today, Mar. 25 2013, the second of your photos (the black and white one) is still up on Model Mayhem with the Aronvisuals watermark. Maybe now you have the ammunition to get him banned completely.

Hi Ikiri and lurch. I actually can't find him on MM anymore. Lurch, can you show me how you did?

Thanks,

Re: More stolen work! (Aron Visuals)

I just clicked on your link. It doesn't work now, however. Dunno why. Might be pilot error, but I don't think so.
