Warning to GOTD users: comment #3 by “Ashraf from Dottech” on Photo Stamp Remover is not me

UPDATE: As luck may have it, GOTD deleted the fake comment in question just as I posted this article. So, carry on everyone, nothing to see here.


Hey friends,

As many of you know, we write regular reviews on daily offers by Giveaway of the Day. We have a relationship with the GOTD team in which they notify us of the daily offers beforehand so that we can review the relevant software and post reviews when an offer is live. As part of our review process, I go to GOTD and post a comment to let people know about the review so they can read it.

Today, however, I woke up a bit late and could not review Photo Stamp Remover 5.5 Standard. As such, I did not post a comment on GOTD. So you can imagine my surprise when I went to GOTD and saw a comment by “Ashraf from Dottech”:

Folks, that is not me; that is an imposter using my name.

Now, most long-time dotTechies know I am very much against censorship and am pro-freedom of speech. You’ll notice rarely are comments ever deleted on dotTech, only the most vicious ones. However, this is a clear case of someone trying to impersonate as me, so I’ve contacted the GOTD team and asked them to either delete the comment or edit it to make it clear that the comment is not by me. Until that happens, I am posting this article to let everyone know the truth.

Stay safe everyone.

-Mr. Boss

    I was living in Mexico for a while, and there, producing some news stuff for the Mexican market. I knew my products were good if in the 6 months after some copies where on the streets. So Ashraf, you have the proof, you are good enough to be copied. ;)

    [@Mike] My guess is he/she was trying to insert links to their own product and/or website but failed horribly seeing as they didn’t properly insert any links in their comment.

    Not a big deal, it was dealt with by the GOTD team in a commendable manner. Not really their fault in the first place — how were they to know it is an imposter.
