Hi all. I'm on the road in Philadelphia conducting our International Glamour, Beauty & the Nude workshops (don't worry, if you missed it, we have another in Oct.) and thanks to a friend, found out I'm being impersonated.

First and foremost, I'm not a member of Model Mayhem, One Modelmanagers Place (O-M-P), aMuzedCubes, etc. I'm only a member of Myspace---my real my space = http://www.myspace.com/glamourphotographer and Models.com, and other place I can recall, but don't remember on the road (grin).

With that said, there is a person that appears to impersonating me on MM, their name there is "DVD Photographics." Can those of you, all of you, that are members of MM call this guy/girl out? Let them know that using some of my bio and my noted, "rg sends" is wrong? Heck, the images in his port are not mine, they maybe yours? So please, as I am not a member and I don't feel like joining that place.

Thanks to all that alerted me, and remember, if it's me on any site, I register with my email, rolando@rolandogomez.com or older sites rolando@garageglamour.com and nothing else.

Thanks, back home late Monday and then back to normal. Thanks, rg sends!

The lengths of immaturity some adults go to is astounding, eh Rolando? It makes me wonder what goes through a person's mind to go to all that trouble to impersonate another.

Regards, Art. (BTW I call it One More Pornplace )

Likewise on "DVD Photographics" coming up as a no-show on the MM search function. Well, it does return a result "1 out of 1" found, but no avatar appears, nor is there was way to get to that profile. Could be that MM has eliminated the account and this is just a residual hit? Dunno. But the good news here is, that creature isn't showing.

My best search results came up that this individual's profile is pending approval. May be a good idea to let the administrator(s) of MM know about this so he can be rendered useless.

I sent email to the moderators of MM regarding the impersonation of Rolando and shortly after I got a reply that the matter was taken care. All keep your heads up for more imposter profiles popping up in almost anybody's name. Who would have guessed that identity theft would even go this far.

They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery so I wonder exactly how one should take this? ;-)

A dear and close friend of mine, comedian Vinny Marz, passed away last year. Vinny did a joke on stage that was pretty funny. The joke was about identity theft. He'd start it out by talking about--in his own, signature, "Vinny" style--how he doesn't understand identity theft. He'd then engage in some fairly self-deprecating humour, talking about his looks, his body (short and round), the negative balance in his bank account, his love life or lack of one, that sort of stuff. His punchline for this was, "Identity theft??? Who the fuck would want to be me?" It always got fantastic laughs. (P.S. i'm only recounting this cuz it reminded me of my sorely-missed pal, Vinny... no other inference meant.)

Vinny Marz, ladies and gentlemen...
