    so i paid 500 for this tumblr blog with 150k followers. somebody found my blog somehow. and guess what he did?

    instead of learning from my blog on how to make money on tumblr, he hacked/stole my blog, and use it to post worthless pictures! why? why someone wants to hurt me for nothing at all? thats stealing like $50/day from me, and the scumbag uses it to post worthless pictures? if one wants to post pictures which do not even belong to him, why does he even need the followers? what is there to gain?

    for anybody with a peanut size of brain, he would have learned something from the blog. instead the worthless human being does nothing at all except for hurting me.

    of course. and the email uses my own domain and is not used anywhere else. the email address is not using the blog name either. i really wonder how the thief did it. it's like a full-time professional scamming.

    then again if the thief uses the blog to make money, i will be able to get some info of him. isnt that right? e.g. adsense number, aff id etc? then i wonder what i can do about it?

    so tumblr support responded to my email asking me if i have a photo on my blog and ask me to send them a photo of myself. i wanted to tell them i dont have a photo, BUT the account do have a person's picture as avatar.

    i emailed the guy i bought the blog from but he is not responding. i am afraid he might not be using the email any longer.

    i cannot tell tumblr that i bought the blog. i suspect they will not like that. i also suspect that they do not like it if i tell them the avatar is not me..

    any ideas?

    Check if the photo is on google images and find another one from the same guy. Otherwise find some guy who looks the same and give him $1 for his photo.

    Hopefully the guy who sold you the account isn't the one stealing it back. I'm not too familiar with how Tumblr works for resetting passwords, but stuff like that happens all the time where people sell an account, and then have the necessary information to take it back later. In some cases they just need the original IP address and passwords, etc.

    Eh.. Maybe I'm just paranoid though.

    i think its becoming clear after 5 days that the guy who sold me the blog told tumblr i stole his blog! wow. i cant believe some people can be so low! now he started posting his selfie so its obvious now.

    now i have no choice but to tell tumblr i bought the blog.

    when someone would steal other peoples pictures (intellectual property), he most certainly would steal a blog if he can: (if he is any technically savvy, i would at least have a slight respect for him..)
    http://m0rtality.tumblr.com/ the son of a bitch never credits anything he posts. he got some people messaging him about the theft and he ignored them! the bastard has no morality whatsoever.
