How Pinterest Spammers Hurt a Small Business Owner - A Cautionary Tale

How Pinterest Spammers Hurt a Small Business Owner - A Cautionary Tale | Pineterest Profits | Scoop.it

Chas Begley: There is no doubt that spammers are operating on Pinterest. This post on Mashable tells the cautionary tale of Michelle DiFilippo-Espinoza. Michelle's Pinterest images for her one person jewellery business were stolen and used by spammers to promote scams and even spread computer viruses.

 

Despite taking remedial action and informing Pinterest it took 10 days for Pinterest to remove the images during which time Michelle's business was harmed. 

 

According to Pinterest the correct action if your images are hijacked like Michelle's is to fill out a copyright claim form accessible here: http://pinterest.com/about/copyright/dmca/

 

 

The moral of the story is to keep your eyes peeled and act quickly. My sympathies to Michelle who was clearly an innocent victim.
