    I have an Instagram account for selling bows. I just found out someone is using my name on kik to fool people... The person use the exact same name as my Instagram account and contact everyone who comments on my pictures. I find this really disturbing. I feel so sorry for the kids who paid money to this person. I don't think it has been going on for that long though, thank god.


    I tried to kik this person and she/he answered me.. You can see a part of the conversation below. I'm sure someone tried to do this to someone else's business too.. I can't believe people in the cheer world are doing this! You really have to watch your back nowadays. :(

    That's a scam and actually could be taken up with the police.. they openly admitted to only doing that for the money.

    Can't they find out through email or the way the person signed up and make a police report? I'm so sorry :( That is so awful.

    There is always a way... wether the police think its worth looking into is another story... But I agree that this is not cool...

    The door swings both ways.... they will get theirs eventually.

    I live in Sweden so I'm not sure I can go to the police here? But I would like to do it because I feel awful for the kids who paid this person.

    KIK has a 24 hour support line. I would call immediately and let them know. They can at least shut down the persons account and look into it further.

    Why would anybody ever find pleasure in this? It's just wrong...

    I'm so sorry for what has happened with your business. :(

    How did you find out? Did one of the fooled customers contact you? THEY can definitely take some action. Gather as much information as you can and document everything (everything).

    Good luck!

    If you would like, I can send CP in as a spy. I can have her to pretend to want to order a bow and find out how to pay.

    Inbox me if you would like. I need your Instagram so she can comment with her Kik name.
