Default singapore copymamas

Anyone else have trouble with people from this site?

http://www.singaporemotherhood.com/f...htm?1331436857

I've had copycats but this place makes me soooo angry.
There are several areas of the forum where they are posting my links (and in some cases my pictures were up!) and then asking for takers on the products. Copying my products and my PRICES and then offering reduced shipping.

That irritates the begeebers out of me. My overseas shipping prices are borderline insanity. I pay some people outside of the US to shop for goodness sakes!

Anywho-- anyone else experience issues with these forum members? See a lot of traffic? Just want to yell along with me? (LOL)

Can you post an exact link? Or provide the key word to find it on the site?

I used to be a member of that forum when I lived in Singapore so I'm interested to see if I know who it is.

Your link doesn't go to a particular thread...

I should have linked to the thread when I started. Maybe I could still reach it.
It looks like they've taken the links down now.So that's good.

Here's the deal though -
Someone starts a thread offering to make boutique items, posts links to various etsy shops in the USA and then offers to make them at x price.
In my case it was a headband that I offer in the shop at a VERY competitive price and really low shipping cost to that area. She was offering to make it at the same price but get it there faster.

There were many links to a few other sellers. All leading to etsy pages.
I'm assuming I may not be the only one hassling them for this.

Not sure if it's just something that recently popped up or if this is the norm for those boards but YUCK! Tacky! And so very rude.
You all know how that works around here!!

Anyway, if you happen to see a place like this in your stats I would suggest taking a peek to see what the buzz is all about. Even if it's only a couple of hits to start. They may be mass producing and reusing the photos as well as (oh my fav part) trash-talking your shop while they take the sales. "look at the prices she charges for shipping.. look at the time it takes. My quality will be better"
Hardly a thing you can do if it gets out of hand but thought it was worth mentioning I guess.

And if anyone else has issues with links from this site I would love to hear.

And, btw, my quality is fab. Just for the record
