Remember the plagiarist that was reveled to me in 2008 about this time? I’m writing because she’s apparently opened up shop AGAIN only changed her name. Probably because my blog is the top thing you find when you google her name. What used to be Mia Szazbo Bergman(married to Ben Bergman) is now going by the moniker Maliya Bergman with a new blog: http://bouquetofbubbly.
Well, we found out as people investigated that it was a LOT more than just plagiarism. This woman is one of the most heartless women ever to walk the earth. I continually hear from her victims and what she has done to them. The worst is it is old friends and family she works on Facebook that is just…sick.
And this has been going on or FOUR YEARS PEOPLE.
(Oh, and apparently she explains my blog by telling people I’m a crazy friend of her ex. Yeeeeah….whatev.)
If you’re interested in reading the original blog post with HUNDREDS of comments feel free http://loraleeslooneytunes.com/2008/07/15/hey-plagiarism/
I got an email tonight saying that she has a new blog (likely ripped off from other people.) you should check it out before she shuts it down or makes it private. (Because my goal in all of this is to shut her down when I can and to make sure that there is at least ONE less victim who googles her name before falling prey to her.
She’s a waste of oxygen. I’ve heard from SO MANY OF HER VICTIMS. Some to the tune of tens of thousands of dollars. She has some tried and true scams like needed to desperately sell a bunch of designer handbags and a really reduced price. But TA-DA…the money comes and the victim is blocked from all forms of communication from her. They also get excuse after excuse. (She told people that her DAUGHTER DIED. So that pretty much says that she is one of the sickest people to walk the earth.)
Luckily, some have read my blog before giving the slimeball any money, but what is heartbreaking are those that don’t. One man is out 30K.
I continue to feel frustrated that no one seems to be able to do anything legally to her.
Because even if her victims can’t recover their money (probably long spent on her luxurious lifestyle) would be a picture of her in an orange jumpsuit paying for her crimes would be truly, truly, satisfying.
