Tim Summers
Other Information

Diversified customers report receiving emails or form submissions through their website from people claiming to be photographers. These emails claim that photos used on the customer's website are stolen. The intent of the sender is to convince the recipient of the email to click on hyperlinks within the email thereby opening themselves up to virus infection.

DO NOT CLICK THE LINKS. They are most likely infected with a virus.

DO NOT ATTEMPT TO REPLY TO THE SENDER. Doing so may place your email address on a number of spam lists.

ASK YOUR I.T. PERSON to review the incoming email to see if it is valid.

Most reputable photographers and graphic artists would mail a letter if they felt that they had a legitimate concern over the photos used on a website.
