    The Brainwasher 

    The brainwasher, a common pest, perches itself atop the hierarchy of adult industry scum, looking down on the lower ranks with contempt and authority. Their words, daggers. Their actions, self-serving. Hiding in social corners, they silently stalk their prey, watching over like the eagle from a safe, high distance, making their presence known only when it suits the agenda. With tools at their disposal to multiply in droves, a large number of these exist and are infesting every inch of the industry.

    We all see it yet we play ignorant. The typical camgirl’s response, resulting from her lower ranking, is to opt for the safety and security of silence over the ramifications of speaking out. Afraid to rock the boat or go against the grain, the masses of lower ranks simply follow their leader, making the brainwasher’s job now effortless. The brainwashed buy into the belief that outside forces control the traffic ebbs and flows. Influence of this magnitude allows the brainwasher to govern the industry.

    A common neglect to place blame where it rightfully belongs suggests the sites are never at fault. Rather, diverting everyone’s attention toward a wide range of outside disturbances, including our connections, the internet, the weather. If that wasn’t believable enough, the self-doubt card was dealt, through subtle advice (in a calm yet influential manner). Brainwashing 101. In summary, traffic is slow because we don’t work enough hours, it’s because we don’t hustle hard enough, it’s because of what time of day or night we work, it’s because of the time of year it is (summer slowdown, back to school, Hallowe’en, Thanksgiving, Christmas holidays, New Year’s, Superbowl Sunday, Valentine’s Day, Easter, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, 4th of July, etc.). Feel free to include any old embellishment of the truth while we’re on a roll here. Perhaps it’s time to take the we out of that equation, stop making excuses and look at what’s staring us right in the face. I have been in this industry for 17.5 years and have seen enough bullshit. When those industry forums were filled with real camgirls, you got the raw truth and no real camgirl made excuses for slow traffic. We blamed the sites (and rightfully so), gave them shit and called out every glitch. Initially, they tried to convince us it was our connections and we actually bought it for awhile but then, after much troubleshooting to exhaust every possible culprit (performing internet speed checks online with outside, trustworthy sources, open other windows to see if it works, try using video in other programs), we discovered it was indeed the sites and not our collective internet connections (surprise, surprise!). Many complaints were made in the forums about video freezing, dropping and the sites still continued to blame the girl, the customer, everything under the sun, but never their system. When devices started to gain in popularity and more people were enjoying our shows on them, the sites saw an opportunity to blame them for the dropped connections. That was pretty quickly dispelled with rave reviews coming from girls performing Skype shows that ran perfectly smooth and whose connections remained intact.

    We have to stop feeding the notion that those running this industry are clean and honest. The truth is, they are filthy and the biggest liars, deceivers and scum! The longer they make excuses for all these (so-called) “glitches”, year after year, the lower we sink into an even deeper submissive state. A true insult to our intelligence. With that many performers and customers having problems, no site relying on live video revenue would survive losses lasting that long and in those numbers. How could they still be making money? Unless, of course, they don’t really need us, right? “Content is King’, after all. Right, sites?

    We have all taken notice of how arrogant and controlling some self-proclaimed camgirls can be in certain industry forums. Many are extremely secretive with their online footprint, using different names in the forums than the ones they supposedly use on the sites. The site owners, managers, recruiters , paid P.R. people are in there (it’s quite obvious) with fake camgirl names, which can’t be found anywhere else besides that forum, not tracing to any existing active camgirl. When confronted, they claim that they don’t want their customers (who, as we all know, don’t enter those forums anyway)  to read all about their chat exchanges which, at times, can be very personal. One can create as many different names in those forums as their heart desires without even having to prove they are an actual camgirl. How convenient.

    Has the burning question surfaced yet? Would the sites do this? Why go through all the trouble? What do they stand to gain? Why money, of course, through influence and ultimately control. With that range of power, the sky’s the limit. This is how influence works in our industry:

    In fellow camgirl mode, their befriending efforts gain them support and trust of the real camgirls. When they feel threatened, or their efforts are being compromised, they use their influence over you to make you succumb to their way of doing things or offer advice as a last resort. In the event of a failed attempt to brainwash you, they resort to plan ‘b’, to gang up and attack. Anyone who doesn’t follow the mindset put forth by the group is susceptible to those attacks. Performers who ask too many questions start to immediately see declines in traffic and revenue. It is not a stretch to believe the sites would pose as camgirls in these forums with advice if it meant a way to increase their bottomline. Some of these beliefs are from real camgirls, some are not. I can differentiate between the brainwashers and the brainwashed because I have been in the industry so long and know a transformation when I see one. I have witnessed a shift in mindset and how it correlates with drops in traffic and revenue. The point is, these fakes have poisoned the minds of many camgirls and that fact should be brought to light.

    This is just an example of the sites doing what they do best. The precedent was set long ago, concerning  these beliefs about where traffic has gone and while the blame is cast in all those other directions, there has to be that burning question in everyone’s mind; for an industry so spontaneous and with spending habits so random (that is what it once was), how has it evolved to this point where certain patterns emerge and traffic flows, normally sporadic, have become so predictable? For example: best days and worst days (we all know what ours are), those last days leading up to the pay period’s end (slow as hell), those first moments after the system starts a new pay period week (fantastic!). There does look to be a more manipulated pattern in recent years than ever before which there shouldn’t be. Pay attention to these very carefully. Graphed earnings will display a pattern, clear as day. Go back (up to) as many as 4 years.

    I know the sites read my blog (rather frequently, I might add), so I’m not going to tip my hand here with how I know the difference between the brainwashers and the brainwashed but most camgirls are clever enough to figure this out for ourselves (yes, mister Webpimp, we are).

    Now, it appears the trend has shifted toward everyone getting what for some reason they are calling “vanilla” jobs, … better known as real jobs. You know you’ve been in this industry too long when … ;) Hell, I don’t even call it that.

    Food for thought.

    Numbers Don’t Lie 

    Here are some examples, taken from a popular adult industry forum, of camgirl earnings. Some of these are quite shocking. Remember, our earnings have been steadily declining over the years. My opinion of the industry and the scams within will never change, despite how much sneakier and scummier those controlling it have become. The only question remaining is: how much lower can they go?

     

    just over $30 in 3 hours on SM.. traffic has been great yesterday and today but it’s just guys popping in and out all night, sometimes saying “Hi” and leaving a second later. I think it’s the site, I haven’t had nights this bad in weeks.

     The few guys that DO talk have all been “show me a lil something then pvt, ok bb??” “love your tits, can I see them?” I usually don’t get too many of those but this past week there’s been an explosion of douchebags on SM.

     WHERE ARE MY REGS WHEN I NEEEEED THEM?!?!?

    —————————–

    Well I am just doing way better than yesterday.. ROFLMAO!… I have made $20 bucks and I am not even done with my 5 hours yet.. woot woot!

    —————————–

    Oh darl,  I feel you.  Made shitty 8 bucks on 2 hours on sm today.  And sm always send me pvt sound even if there is no pvt.  Thanks Sm for making me frustrated!!

    —————————–

    $6? What in the HELL? it’s been almost 3 hours now.. uggh

    $17 in 5 hours.. that’s almost impossible.. I GIVE UP!.. STREAMATE, CAMS, KINKLIVE, NITEFLIRT, IFRIENDS.. XXXCAMBABES, GIRLSPRIVATECAM ETC ETC.. REALLY?? JUST FUCKING REALLY?

    —————————-

    Oh, for the love of God…it says that today I was logged into ImLive for 9 hours and only made $5.38. And it says that yesterday I was logged on for 7 hours and made $1.64. This is absolute insanity. Well, uh…some good news…I finally accumulated enough points on Opinion Outpost (one of those paid survey sites) to cash out via PayPal. YAY ME! :P I had 110 points, which equates to $11 via PayPal. And the payout happened INSTANTLY. I’ve got my PayPal debit card, and I’m about to buy some food. You’d be amazed how I can stretch $11.

    ————————

    Ugh, 2 hours on SM last night and $30. I wanted to stay on longer but the last hour I couldn’t make anything so I logged off. I haven’t even been able to sell a Skype show in days. A week ago I was getting pretty consistant shows and now it’s nothing. I’ve had a few guys contact me but they have been freeloaders or they just disappear after I tell them to give me 5-10 minutes before I can do the show.

    ————————

    Worst week EVA so far.. ugh I only have less than 3 days left.. I am clocking 12 bucks a fucking hour on average all week!.. I suck!… or they suck.. someone fucking sucks

    ———————–

    happy i was on period last week and didnt work. but yeah. :(( today in 5 hours made 110. yesterday made in 6 hours 120. thats deff not me. i am simple, without make up, only sitting not to teasy :) but i always show my eyes and i always smile, always polite. but past few weeks… woooow. never had anything like that in my two years career. people come and leave. its sooo great i have some regulars that actually come and help since they know why i do this job. it diesnt matter they tip only 5 per day, but still. btw, i tried everything past few weeks- i was doing 1 gold shows( i usually do 5 for 7 mins, not always works for me gold shows, but i dont like them anywayz)- noone joined, or like two three guys join, then dailies come and tip until goal is reached. i dont even talk about privates. its like +10000 warm outside and i need sit ahead computer because in 3 days i didnt manage to make 500 bucks which is not me, when i work 5 hours i always make 150. but now…. i dunno. !
    it was like slow when football championship was, but deff not like that. thanks god for my dailies with 3s and 4s next to their names. :)) and yes, natural girls attract guys there :) since i never ever put any make up or do my hair. i dont care anymore. in my whole life i got only few bad comments about me – bad teeth( but yeah, they are bad! i would need around 10000 bucks to fix them), that i am a moody cow and malipulator and liar( but the guy appoligised me after i explained purpose of topic and he also tipped me later). good luck girls! i really hope things will get better on SM and they will fix the damn page

    ——————

    I’m on my way to the store for a gluten free burrito, big bag of peanut butter m&ms and lord knows what else. Pretty frustrating – $25 in 4 hours. Can’t even start about all the sorry ass trolls & low iq nimrods I’ve seen since Thursday.

    ——————-

    Woohoo!!.. 28 bucks in 3 hours .. YAY ME!.. and I actually had a decent day yesterday.. over my mid range goal…  Low goal is $100, Mid goal is $200, High Goal is $300+ for me.

    ——————-

    Arghhhhh camming SUCKS it could not suck anymore than it sucks right now.
    5 hours camming…£18 earnt.

     I thought being the last day of the month people got paid today?

    ————————————–

    Wow! 15$ in 3 hours. At this rate, I’ll be able to retire in….oh, let’s see…ummmm…I’m 40 now and if I live to be 90….I can retire in 50 years?
    FML!

      Amanda,

      I don’t know if you saw it but @streamate on twitter, the account was suspended and I wonder who else will be. Also Wag Acquistions LLC decided to add Vube.com to the ICF technology patent lawsuits in July. Can’t wait to see who they go after next. Has Mr. Abramson contacted you yet? I am sure you would be a great character witness to how Shawn Boday operates. I guess it is not a good summer for Boday and his group of harassers. One look at their Compete and Alexa traffic stats shows a big decline since they closed your account.

      It also appears that there is a little group of webcam performers who are recruiters and have studios on ICF Technology Inc.’s white labels. They seem to be losing a grip of their performers as the traffic dies off and Skype shows become cheaper as well as more popular. It looks like their money cow’s milk has dried up and they can’t make the big money anymore. This is the answer to your attacks whenever you post against them. I saw this before with the affiliates on Ifriends.

      Three things I learned a long time ago. First, if something that is supposed to be random in nature starts to look like it has a pattern then it is being manipulated by someone for their own personal gain. Seen too often in stock market schemes and under Hadhazy’s regime. Second, when a group of specific people try to twist and discredit someone who is speaking out or trying to help their fellow workers, it is likely because that “someone” is speaking too much of the truth and the fellow workers see behind the curtain. They always try to have the last word against you because they are paranoid that nobody is listening to them anymore. Lastly, if a company has a glitch in their system that should be losing them money and it does not get fixed for months to years then it is not losing them money. Therefore the so-called glitch is an actual purposeful act to take hidden money from people. No company that loses money on a glitch does not fix it immediately. So Streamate and Ifriends’ glitches are all done on purpose to take money from the performers, affiliates and customers.

      The complaints and reports about Streamate and those of Ifriends are starting to look and act the same in many regards. I have also discovered that Streamate has partnered up with some of the same people as Webpower Inc/Ifriends since September 2011 which happens to be the same month as the domain Webcam-mate.com was created. I think you and the other performers were not suppose to see, find it or even know about the connection. The website did not just change its information to show Accretive Technologies Group’s servers or Webpower Inc as the domain registrant but it closed and disappeared within two weeks of your blog. Look familiar to you? Seems like the old, change it quickly and make it look like it was just an error or oversite. Nothing to see here! Kind of like how Webpower took off Sheri Falco’s name so quickly from their DotXXX domains and how @streamatepage3 changed its name to @bigfloppydnkeyD and deleted their tweets. The old saying, “if it looks like a rat, smells like a rat then it probably is a rat” certainly appears very true in this case of ICF Technology Inc/Streamate and WebpowerInc/Ifriends.

      Keep being outspoken and informing your fellow performers about these two scam artists. Maybe some day other performers will have the courage to speak out when they can’t make any money anymore and have absolutely nothing to lose. As a group you all have the power over them!

    How Not To Proposition A Camgirl 

    Here is just one shining example of how the fine folks in my industry proposition us so that they can steal our Skype show content (to record and later sell/trade with other sites). This works especially well  in conjunction with a ploy to get us into Skype trouble by having us perform nude shows with no prior proof of age from the ‘customer’. Keep in mind that websites in the industry have been seeing major declines in traffic as the result of girls having their own websites and offering Skype shows to their customers.

     

    Heads up, camgirls. These guys are not as innocent as they appear, nor are their motives. Remember the guys back in school that would say anything just to get some action? These are the same guys. They will say anything to get you to give them your content. With promises of traffic and promotion, “you will be making bank in no time, girls”! Heard that one before? Only to find out they were yanking your chain and all they wanted was your content. Content is King. Don’t give it to them. Do your own thing. Do Skype shows on your own. You don’t need them. Believe me. I spent the last 17 years building what I thought was my business on these sites and in the end, started to investigate what I should have years earlier, only to find I had been stolen from the entire time, lied to, harassed, impersonated, my customers taken from my rooms, off my e-mail lists, never to receive my live notices again, etc. Unbelievable … but true.

    Anyway, this guy seemed nice, at first. He sent me a few tweets and then decided to dm me, and here’s what ensued …

     

    Image1 Image2 Image3 Image4 Image6 Image7 Image5 Image8 Image9 Image10 Image11 Image12

     

    Does this sound like someone with a genuine interest in promoting or just another game player? I can’t rule out that he could also just be some regular Joe out there seeking a way to obtain free Skype shows from girls but after putting my investigative skills to the test, I’m quite convinced he is in the industry.

    A Short Skype Gripe 

    Who has the kind of time on their hands to create several Skype accounts only to be a pain in someone’s ass? I have blocked over 100 accounts on Skype over the years, who all have the same exact mentality, comments, grammar, spelling mistakes, jabs and general attitude. All of which are present in the conversation screenshots below. There are certain ‘tells’ that give away exactly who this person is. I prefer to keep those tidbits of information to myself. Much the same way a poker player would of his opponent when he notices theirs. So anyone thinking of posting a comment to this article, asking for proof, don’t waste your time. After what I have had to endure from this industry, I have no need to defend myself to anyone. Some read my blog,  yet continuously pester me about proof. If your interest in knowing how I know it is the same person doing this, runs that deep, then you will take the time to read my entire blog and see for yourself. The answer is there. All consistent. No lies. In fact, I back up my claims with proof (screenshots, embeds, URLs, etc.) when I can, except when it comes to their tells and pertinent information. Perhaps in the same way the FBI would ask witnesses to keep quiet about details of a case that they are working on. It just doesn’t make sense to leak what you know about your harasser to what could be them or worse – in a public blog for everyone to see, if they happen to be reading it (which, guaranteed, 100%, they are!).

    Anyway, here are the screenshots of today’s conversation on Skype. Nothing quite like blocking someone’s ass to kick-start a Monday morning!

    Time Management; A Random Thought 

    I’m often invited to play Facebook games and decline because I find them to be a waste of  time. I think we waste enough time in our lives just dealing with idiots. The way I look at it now; it is senseless to play games that don’t, in any justifiable way, improve my life. I would much rather spend that time outside with my dog throwing the ball around or having sex with my boyfriend or watching a movie with him or hopping into my in-line skates and getting some really good exercise. No one knows how much time we all have on this earth before it decides to destroy us all. We’ve destroyed it, after all. Do enough people care? Hell no. So, here we are. I think we need to make the most of life. In a few questionably ‘sane’ moments, I tried to imagine myself in 40 years. Whatever hell we’ve made for ourselves by then; hopefully memory loss will kick in strong by then. When I look back at my life, I can onyl hope to answer “so, let’s see, what have I spend my time doing?” with “I spent my time productively and surrounded by loved ones”, When I see people so connected to their devices that they can’t look up, can’t get any work done, can’t even cross a street without looking away, can’t eat or sleep uninterrupted by that device, I’m saddened to think of how these ‘addicts’ will look back on their lives. Will they end up with regrets, having spent too much time ‘connected’ rather than with their kids/pets/loved ones/friends or furthering their education, soul searching, living, loving, using their brains? What are they missing? EVERYTHING.

    Camming Then & Now 

    Camming Then:

    Members and guests actually used the chat.

    Camming Now:

    Members and guests rarely use the chat.

     Camming Then:

    The sites had paying traffic.

    Camming Now:

    The sites have so little paying traffic, it’s amazing they are still in

    business.

    Camming Then:

    Weekends and holidays were awesome.

    Camming Now:

    Weekends and holidays bring less traffic than ever before in history.

    Camming Then:

    Paydays (Thursday and Friday, typically) were great days for us.

    Camming Now:

    Thursdays and Fridays are slow as heck.

    Camming Then:

    The so-called ‘glitches’ got fixed.

    Camming Now:

    Despite numerous reports, the so-called ‘glitches’ remain consistent, losing us business.

    Camming Then:

    Performers signed up directly to the sites, earning anywhere from 35 to 60 percent commission.

    Camming Now:

    Performers now sign up through ‘recruiters’, who, under directions from the site owners, work to lower the camgirls’ commissions overall. I’ve heard that some girls earn as little as 12% with an  average at about 25%.

     

    I cringe when I read posts from (self-proclaimed) “camgirls” making excuses for declines in revenue and traffic. Having witnessed this behavior for years, I know that the real camgirls just up and leave. They don’t stick around to constantly try and convince the others of why it is so slow or cling to that little itsy bitsy glimmer of hope that at any time, a good member will come along with one show and make their entire week. The same group of so-called ‘camgirls’ go to great lengths to convince you they are legitimate camgirls. They have to. If you thought, for one second that one of those girls was actually a site owner or manager, in there posing as a camgirl to brainwash the others, all the real camgirls would feel deceived, pissed and never return there, or to the sites that are doing it. What a low down scummy thing to do. What do they have to gain? Why go through all the trouble? Makes no sense, right? No, actually, it makes perfect sense. Brainwashing all the camgirls who read those forums (most of which never reply because they are suspicious that the sites are in there anyway but can’t prove it) serves the sites in a way that they could do only if you were an employee, so rather than risk the legal repercussions from acting as an employer when they have no right to, they find other ways to get the girls to do what they need them to do, all to feed their big fat bottom lines. They can screw with you so badly and thanks to the lawless industry that is called “porn”, the sky is the limit. Who will stop them? Who has ever taken them to task and had pockets deep enough to win? . Imagine if the cat did actually get out of the bag and they got caught posing as camgirls, impersonating camgirls? Something inside me just wants to blurt out to any potential real camgirl that might just happen to come across any thread or post making excuses on behalf of the sites,”it’s the damn sites doing it. Get a f***ing clue, girls! Don’t be so naive and trusting!”.

    Just look closely at what camming used to be and how it has changed. It hasn’t evolved, like a normal company would. It has changed, much like the economy of a country whose empire is crumbling. Desperation is setting in. Those changes point to an industry that is being destroyed by the very bodies governing it, with all of its people in a state of compliance because they, too, are desperate. The difference is … some of us are still working hard to earn an honest living while others are stealing from everyone whose information they can obtain; girls, members, affiliates.

    Skype Vs Cam Sites 

    A few light notes to consider on the topic of Skype Versus Cam Sites:

     

    Skype doesn’t have glitches that never get fixed.

    Members on Skype don’t have connection issues nearly as much as on the sites.

    People can’t scroll your Skype chat.

    Your Skype chat room can’t be flooded with hundreds of fake guests.

    Skype has a block feature that works.

    Skype doesn’t offer a voyeur view that you don’t get paid for.

    You can set your Skype status to online and people will find you.

    Skype doesn’t steal your video feed from private sessions to sell on other sites behind your back.

     

    Rather than lose us and all the content that has made them rich, select cam site owners decided to lay low and quietly create Skype show platforms, complete with a conveniently integrated system which handles the billing of customers and payments to you  packaged perfectly to include chargebacks and refunds, for your benefit, of course. They are quick to answer questions about it with absolute professionalism but then fail to deliver what they tried to sell everyone on in their initial launch plan and the only thing the average camgirl cares about; paying traffic.

    In this industry, there is a saying: Content is King. It is blatantly obvious that this has become the standard  Their method for obtaining this content as cheaply as possible can be accomplished by creating little dinky sites, a basic copy and paste job with slight modifications to the design/interface, hoping to lure girls in under promises of ridiculously high commissions (of the traffic you drive to yourself, they fail to mention). Kinda makes that high commission irrelevant. 70% of nothing is still nothing. It isn’t hard for a web designer to make those changes nor is it hard for a webmaster to buy a domain and hosting service. That’s pocket change in the form of operating costs, necessary in order to maintain fresh content for their buyers/traders.

    The sites can’t deliver any sort of decent traffic anymore. We all see the decline. Anyone with the slightest business sense or logic would ask why the payout is so high. What’s the catch? There is no such thing as a gift horse in this industry, only scammers, liars and cheats. Let’s face it. Look at where all the sites are located, where their servers are, where their contracts are out of. A quick glance at that will tell you the IRS isn’t getting their share. You think they’re not stealing from you, too? Reality check, please.

    So camgirls, if you’re looking to go truly independent and offer Skype shows, be wise and don’t sign up with any site or recruiter (they use them to herd up the masses) if they gain access to your  video stream in any way. A sure sign of that is if the Skype program is embedded on their site and it isn’t you signing in directly to Skype. Generally, You may think you’re independent but if you’re not signed into Skype, you’re not doing Skype shows. Period. You can rest assured, there is a pimp in the shadows stealing from you, once again. It’s what they do best. Don’t be fooled!

    Be independent. What you need to do is this:

    Hire someone to create a website for you (or if you’re knowledgeable, do it yourself) with a Home page, Join page, Contact page, Terms of Service, Privacy Policy, Copyright Policy, Refund Policy.

    Register a company, to legitimately accept payments from customers with a good payment processor which age verifies them (an absolute must).

    Trademark your name. There are people in this industry slimy enough to try and take everything you have built over the years and with that trademark, they can. First usage is deemed common-law trademark, however, you would be forced to oppose, and this will cost you upwards of a few hundred dollars.

     

    Camgirls interested in being independent and willing to work at it, I will show you what it takes. Perform a search for me on Skype if you’re serious. We will talk there. For those that want someone to do all the work for them, you are enabling the webpimps to thrive. Laziness is costing us all – big time. I wish girls would realize that it takes hard work to be independent. It is no walk in the park. If you are not willing to put in the time and effort, then go back to the pimps and get ripped off. We, the camgirls produce the content that make the webpimps rich. So, what do the pimps do and why are they the ones making the lion’s share of the money in this industry? I’m ashamed to admit, on behalf of all women in this industry, we have not evolved whatsoever, from the dinosaur days of the oldest profession in the world. We are still under pimp rule. If the roles were reversed and there was as much of a demand for camguys, would this bring out women pimps, taking that lion’s share of the money earned? I can’t even begin to imagine that scenario. Gender still dictates who controls the money in an industry built around women, by women. What is wrong with us? This is our industry. Is it not? Or is it laziness that prevents us from thriving? When you renounce control over what is rightfully yours, there is always someone willing to put in the work and snag the profits, as well. This seems to be the case. If you are lazy, you are prey. It’s as simple as that. It isn’t the industry that needs to change; it is our mindset about it.

     

    I am working on a tutorial which explains the necessary steps to becoming truly independent, in full detail. I will promote it when completed. In the meantime, start on the three things mentioned above in blue.

    General Skype Can’t Get It Right 

    Once upon a time, there was a “General” who friended me on Skype …

    I recognized his profile picture because that same one was attached to a

    few another accounts that followed me, under different names. I

    confronted him about this, and he called me a “bitch”.

    He immediately removed his picture and blocked me. I guess my response

    wasn’t to his liking.

     

    I am a scam magnet. If the law ever decided they wanted to actually fight crime and find scams, all they’d need to do is follow me around.

    Webpower Inc (iFriends) Renews Amanda36c.net Until 2023 

    In April 1999, I signed up to work on iFriends as an independent subcontractor. I created the name “amanda36c”.

    Four years later, in 2003, I purchased amanda36c.com. IFriends had no problem with that then.

    In 2008, iFriends purchased amanda36c.net and every year afterward, renewed it for one year.

    I left iFriends over a revenue dispute in late 2009. They should have stopped renewing amanda36c.net then or paid me what is owed from the monies they collected from my ‘fan club’ and content they were obviously still selling. They never paid me after that point and in February 2014, as usual, renewed amanda36c.net again. Good until 2015.

    On May 19 2014, however, they made a change and decided to renew it until 2023 instead.

     

    The screenshot below was taken from this page http://whois.domaintools.com/amanda36c.net on June 4, 2014.

    amanda36cnet

    Their own site, iFriends.net is only renewed until 2017.

    Under their own contract, I was to be paid 50% for my ‘services’ and the sale of my content on their platform. Is it not obvious that my content is still being sold? No company would renew the dot net of a name for so long unless there is business being done under that dot net. If there is business being done, there is money being made. It isn’t exactly rocket science. So, where’s my 50% from all the sales of my content, iFriends?

    Shall we call it ‘coincidence’ that this recent renewal change comes just 6 days after the opposition to the trademark (amanda36c) was made public? After someone tried to acquire my trademark using the name Catherine St Louis, which is really Catherine Tayler, who later changed the name over to her ex’s, Clint Bialkoski. I am not under the belief that there are different people attacking me for my trademark and dot net, all at the same time. The timing and sabotage is all coming from one place.

     

    I have been doing business under the name Amanda36c for 17 years in total and now, iFriends wants to steal everything I have ever done with it and everything I have ever done business with under with that name.

    I know you read my blog (quite frequently, I might add, iFriends, Webpower Inc., WP Associates, WPI or whoever you call yourselves today). Your deep pockets have allowed you to get away with this for many years, kept all the litigators at bay and silenced many girls, but I am not them and I will fight you with everything I’ve got. Bank on it.

    A Camgirl’s Trademark 

    Camgirls/performers, don’t let what happened to me, happen to you.

    http://amanda36c.wordpress.com/2014/03/17/amanda36c-trademarked

     

    To see if a trademarked has been filed on your name, go here

    http://tmsearch.uspto.gov/bin/gate.exe?f=searchss&state=4802:z0ny6u.1.1

    In the box beside “search term”, enter the name you wish to check for a

    trademark filing on.

     

    Click the Submit Query button.

     

    From the results, fnd the Serial Number and copy it.

     

    Enter that serial number into the box on this page http://tsdr.uspto.gov/

    and click “Status”.

     

    Below the trademarked name is a button “Expand All”.  Click that for all

    information on your trademark.  Trademark owner or person filing for the

    trademark, attorney, etc.

     

    To oppose a trademark, especially if you have been doing business under that name for a long time, you will need to contact a trademark lawyer.  You can get a free consultation or at least an evaluation of approximately what it will cost you to oppose it and possibly obtain that trademark yourself.
