Edited information: 9/15/12 THE LAST KNOWN ADDRESS OF MIA “maliya” SZABO BERGMAN IS IN NARBERTH, PA. IF YOU HAVE BEEN SCAMMED PLEASE REPORT HER TO THEM (610) 664-8160 or (610) 664-2840 OR CALL YOUR LOCAL PD.Unfortunately as she only stole my words and while my heart has broken reading how she scammed, lied and stole from so many of you, there is little i can do. I also found out she changed her name to MALIYA BERGMAN. Here’s her new blog
It was bound to happen sooner or later.
The crappy “P” word that most bloggers get hit with from time to time. You know, that word that means that content you have thought about, slaved over, and typity, typity, typed until your typer was sore was taken and put forth as someone else’s work and glory.
I woke up today to information that my post on blogging jealousy had been copied, cut, tweaked slightly and pasted on the site of Miss Maria Francesca Ditas Chantal Cristina Molina Szabo. (You can all call her, Mia. Or “Coffee Girl”. )
See a staggering similarity?
Some people are of the mind, “I am not going to send you to their site because I don’t want to give them traffic.” Which is a fine attitude to have, but frankly, I could care less about that. Go if you want and say hi to Maria “Mia” Szabo. Don’t send death threats or anything, and if you do chastise her, your comments won’t see the light of day as they are all moderated. I would hurry, though. I fired off a comment demanding that she take it down.
If she doesn’t?
Lorelle has EXCELLENT ideas for going after someones ass when they steal content. And girlfriend left plenty of information (which I have copied and saved) to find her. Dude, don’t piss me off, people. I am the most lovable person on the planet until you cross THAT line. Then? I turn into a monster of rage and storming death that flings her unteathered bosoms and wrath at lame gas station attendants while wearing pajamas and a fugly hairdo. (For the record on this post? Judy still sucks. Just in case you were wondering.)
The immature part of me wants to egg her car and toilet paper her house. Hopefully, I will calm down and realize I am 33 instead of 12 and refrain from doing so. Heh.
Seriously though, it makes me feel more than a little upset that this person has a lecture and a Creative Commons button right at the tip top of her page chastising people about stealing content!
And apparently, she is going to be a lawyer.
Balls of brass, this one has.
Let me get something straight: I NEVER MIND PEOPLE WHO REPUBLISH MY WORK WITH PERMISSION, CREDIT AND LINKS ATTACHED. I also never mind people who “Copy” an idea. I have a post and they want to take the ball and run with it, too. That is beyond flattering.
Also? When I first started blogging and was clueless about the internet I didn’t understand intellectual property in regards to photos and art clips. I was stealing without meaning to. Once I learned? I try damn hard to never, ever do it. However, I have known since the age of 5 that copying other peoples written work and passing it off as your own is wrong, wrong, wrogity wrong.
Pure and simple.
No if’s and’s or but’s about it.
I hate that my words have been taken and bastardized.
I almost feel like I have caught someone trying on my underwear.
It’s an icky feeling, people.
A reader sent this to me. Apparently all of mianeedscoffee’s accounts also link to this public bulletin about dating scam artist. The emails listed coordinate with the email information she used on this blog and so does the photo.
Seems Mia Szabo (Also known as Mia Szabo-Bautista)was a loan officer in Las Vegas who ripped off $75,000 from at least 4 people. She has also taken to posing as a representative for a consulting company lately. Color me totally not surprised.
She has a new blog: http://diaryofaretailtherapist.blogspot.com/. Invitation only. Comments closed. Go, figure. Also, her married name may now be Maria Szasbo Bergman and may be living in New York. I have no idea if this is true, nothing can be counted as truth when it comes to her, it seems. She may be faking her entire marriage on the internet for all I know.
I get emails from her victims almost every month. One victim was from SCOTLAND.
One of the saddest, sickest things I’ve ever seen.
