Hi guys, I will like to advice all who visit this site and follow me on twitter that someone has made a Fake Account of me on twitter and is harassing all the local & national media and trying to ruin my contacts. I ask all to report this person as spam or block him. His account is @Finatic8480. Several local media have contacted me and made me aware. Just wanted to pass it along.

To whoever is doing this you are pathetic, get a life and go **** yourself.


Thanks.

This guy has been correct with everything and we have him right here. Why is anyone screwing with "our" resource. Get a life.

Amazing job Finatic8480.

I got no idea how Twitter works, but is there anyway to call the network company to help you?

Do you know WV Dolphan's IP address? ;) I couldn't help myself.

Thanks for everything you do Roberto. The thing I like the most about all your updates -- I don't need to look for Dolphins tidbits anywhere. You are a great messenger who gets killed sometimes for the message.

Thanks for the support to all, find out I have two low lives harassing me on twitter. They have been reported. One goes by the name Hector Guzman, so if anyone knows who he is on here I hope he is banned. Thanks.

Why would anyone bother.. really.. of all the people to try and punk..

Why not be a fake Sparano?

Lol I'm not sure, but it is probably pretty easy for Twitter to find out who it is by way if IP address.

Guzman is a member.. and i think he runs a website or blog about the dolphins too.

01-06-2011, 03:53 PM
What I don't get.. is how you have a completely different twitter name. Obviously the name was out there to be taken. Once deleted you cannot get it back.

Why didn't you simply open your own account with your own screename here?

as for that user name...i think i've seen someone referred to by that exact thing on this forum...hector guzman

I don't care about the name, it is what they are doing that pisses me off. They are harassing all in the media and trying to burn my bridges.

How do we know you are the real Finatic8480? :chuckle:

I run a personal development website. My twitter account is completely automated. I have over 12,000 followers. I wouldn't waste my time opening an account to badger professional writers or to discredit finatic. If there is something he says I disagree with I can say it here.

As a matter of fact.. I have contacted and got responses from professional writers.http://twitter.com/#!/ElliotZovighian (http://twitter.com/#%21/ElliotZovighian)

Gives you a sense you have made it, but when you are getting messages by well known reporters telling you they are being harassed it sucks.

You have done great work all year Fin, keep up to good work.

Some of his tweets are actually pretty funny:

"@Jeff_Darlington (http://twitter.com/Jeff_Darlington) i love Justin Bieber. that kid is crazy talented. his music brightens my day."

"@robi2184 (http://twitter.com/robi2184) @Nublar7 (http://twitter.com/Nublar7) source informs me i have no sources. isnt that a riddle?"

"@Jeff_Darlington (http://twitter.com/Jeff_Darlington) fake reporters dont use caution jeff. we throw everything on the wall and see what sticks. then ignore the rest"

I'm sure its someone on this site. I've seen a lot of posts bashing finatic lately. I would collect all the negative posts towards you then go Sherlock the rest of the way. Be your own detective.

And if whoever is doing this is over 12 years old, they seriously have too much time on their hands.

Darlington made some pretty good points while on the finsiders.com.

"When things are fluid, and there really isnt anything to report... then dont say anything."

I've garnered new respect for him.

sucks that someone would waste there time doing something like this. Just inform ur sources whats going on and maybe change ur twitter name and keep ur twitter name a secret. That way ur safe from this happening again.

The whole point of having my twitter public is to inform Dolfans of the latest news, just some ******* with nothing to do.

I might be able to help you, pm me and I'll talk to you, anyone who tweeds w a username must have a subnet id. Either the dude f-in w you is clueless how easy it is to catch or is super uber-nerd and is using fake, which I highly doubt. If you need some help, I can and will, I like having the real u around. Makes my homework way easy!

Wow, a stalker!!

For the last couple years someone on the Sun-Sentinel has done that to the guys who blog the most over there. Used variations of their names & then used THEIR names on other blogs. Ask over there, they know alot about him (could figure out by style if its the same guy.), but probably not his real identity. No one can track them down unless they do something illegal & use a subpoena to get the info.

I remember seeing someone say they had discoinferno76 for twitter and they used it to flame. I'm pretty sure it was RickysBong. Just search it on the forum and it should bring up that thread.

Some of those tweets were absolutely ridiculous. FinAtic, there are people who appreciate you. Most of this website would attest to that.
