Razzalina Vaughan (Not her real name) possibly Gayle Vaughan (after some research), stole numbers of photographers professional photos and claimed them as part of her own "life."  She created a pretend husband, luxurious homes and fake children. 

Interestingly enough the fake daughter (just born recently) was completely 100% lily white.   That's impossible with a black husband.  Adopted?  No.  Husbands fake FB account states Ms. Vaughan was very pregnant.  The pregnancy photo was dated 3 years ago.  How is that possible?  The baby was just born?   Well, it seems that there is another pretend child as well.  A fake son named Marcus.  So the pregnancy picture of a supposed pregnant Razzalina was of the little black boy Marcus?  That tiny, tiny picture of the pregnant Razzalina isn't even Razzalina.  The picture is of a different woman. 
Now, that toddler child "Marcus" IS black yes, but the daughter is as white as snow.  Both childrens photos were stolen.

As a professional photographer, it is imperative that you keep track of who downloads or copies (saves) your photo.  Copyright violations happen frequently in this business.  It is very easy to find where a photograph originates from and at the end of this report I will show you all how to check if a photograph honestly belongs to someone.  You will NEVER be duped by one of your "friends" on Facebook again (or any other web site.)

While continuing my investigation, I discovered Ms. Vaughan claimed several photographs were of her new daughter "Megan Rose" but the child in her photos are actually two or three different children.  They're not even the same little girl!  In fact, one of them is a little baby boy.  When people want to fool their friends don't they research the picture's they're stealing to at least make sure the baby is the same sex?

Her fake "husband" Marty Varcaro was posted as a criminal law attorney.  Upon inspection and much investigation on the fake profiles, business profiles, etc, this person "Marcus Anthony Varcaro" does not exist.  He has a Linked In fake account.  ZERO connections.  Well of course he has none.  After calling the bar association, there is NO Marty Varcaro or Marcus Anthony Varcaro, nor is he a criminal attorney or any other kind of attorney.  There  isn't any address for law offices in Florida, Georgia or any other state.

If a Marty Varcaro or a Marcus Anthony Varcaro DOES exist, please excuse this post as it is only a coincidence and your name was used on fake accounts.

The picture Ms. Vaughan used for her "husband" of several years was a black gentleman who's photo appears in several professional ad's including but not limited to e-cigarettes, learning disabilities, dating sites (blackpeoplemeet.com), mental health.  In other words, he is an actor that sells his likeness for companies to use in their ads.

Here are links where his professional photo was used for ads. 

http://www.learningdisabilities.org.uk/support-us/donate/leave-a-gift-in-your-will/?view=Standard

The fake Facebook account of her "husband" recently posted a statement in regards to photographers and/or anyone angry with Ms. Vaughan for stealing their photos, claiming to be the mother of two children that don't belong to her and creating an entire fake life.  The statement by fake Marty Varcaro is as follows:

Marty Varcaro shared a status.
August 11

What's on my mind?? People who do & say vicious things. I don't know who's doing or sending that letter to our friends but I do know it better stop.
(1.) We had an interior desingner do the kids bedrooms. Razzalina liked the way they looked online so we had her
copy then. (SORRY YOU LOSE).
(2.) The dating sight...well yes it was me about four years ago (YOU LOSE).
(3.)Now let me see 'oh yes' what about the condo.. WE purchased the condo on the second floor & decided it wasn't big enough so we purchased the one below it. Put in a stairway & guess what...that's why the pictures from two
different condo's..lol..(YOU LOSE AGAIN) ..And our house in the Smokies....Well take a look at those pictures..IT IS OUR'S ALSO NOW IF YOU HAVE ANYTHING ELSE TO SAY DON'T BE A COWERED "SAY IT TO ME" ...

In case you don't know the definition of a "COWARD" It is a person who lacks courage in facing people, difficulty, opposition, a timid or easily intimidated person.(YOU)

Fake husband, as an attorney, you should know how to spell correctly at this point in your life.  After all, you have a very important professional image to maintain. 

Note:  This entire Facebook account has since been removed and/or deleted by Facebook.  (As you can see this statement was made on August 11, 2012.  Not long ago.)

Now, for fake Megan Rose.

The photos of the children come from more then one site and from more then one photographer.
One of the photos that Ms. Vaughan claims is Megan Rose is actually of photo of a baby boy.

Here is the site that photo (s) were taken to use as Megan Rose.  (The baby's pictures are there, but you must look around the site due to photos being changed around from time to time.)

http://amandaolsonphotography.blogspot.com/

Also, photos were stolen from this photographer:

http://studios.elisahubbard.com/

Ms. Vaughan purchased a photo of a black toddler and claimed to be the mother of him which is illegal.  While certain photos may certainly be purchased, they can only be purchased for use in an ad.   You CANNOT claim you are the child's parent.(This information was given after conversing with the site owner.)

Masterfile.com

Go to masterfile.com.  In the search window, type "black child licking/eating cake."  The photo Ms. Vaughan purchased to use as her "son" Marcus appears in the search results. 

I have several screen shots of Ms. Vaughan using these stolen photos and claiming that she is the mother of this baby.
I have screen shots of Ms. Vaughan using a black toddlers photo and claiming she is also the mother of this child.
I have screen shots of Ms. Vaughan claiming to be the wife of Marty Varcaro and screen shots of the photo of Mr. "Varcaro" being used on multiple web sites in their ads for various products.

Ms. Vaughan and/or Facebook have since removed these photos and Ms. Vaughan no longer says she is married.  Mr. "Varcaros" Facebook account has been deleted but the professional "attorney" link to LinkedIn is still up.

1) Currently at the time of this posting, Ms. Vaughan still retains two photographs of the fake Megan Rose inside of her cover photo album.  (Available to the public)  It is a baby in a pink tutu with a pink head band.

2) Currently at the time of this posting, Ms. Vaughan still retains one photo of the fake Megan Rose along with another photo of a baby lying in the grass (also a stolen photo.)

I feel bad.  Ms. Vaughan continues to maintain two different children's photos on her site.  The photos are being used without permission.  She uses the picture of a child lying in the grass and states this is "our sweet baby girl."  At the time of this posting I was unable to locate the origin of the photo.  Ms. Vaughan was caught with the other stolen photos however and has since removed them.

The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 protects photographers and others from copyright infringement and if photos are not removed from improper use the person (s) in this case Razzalina Vaughan (Gayle) could be sued in court.

I do not and will not ever understand the need for people to create and entire fake life, committing illegal acts by claiming to be pregnant and then claiming to be the actual mother of children that have real parents elsewhere and not even knowing that a very ill woman is claiming their children as her own.
It should have been clear to this woman's friends that the baby pictures were of different babies.  It was easy to see that in the baby photos, these were not the same child.

It is not fair or legal that someone used my photographs (and other photographers photographs) for their own use and claiming to be this child's parent and even going so far as creating a fake husband to be the children's father.

If Ms. Razzalina Vaughans friends truly care for her they would accept her and her real life, whatever that may be.  Someone shouldn't have to resort to an entire re-creation of their life in the attempts to "impress" their internet friends.

NOTE: I did not include information regarding the fake home because this report contained a great deal of information already but I will announce that the "home" Ms. Vaughan claimed to be hers is still available according to the real estate company. After a simple phone call with a real estate agent,  I was given the information on the address provided in the information obtained from Ms. Vaughans photo.

It is clear that I will have to be more diligent in the future to protect my photos from improper use.  I will be watching this woman closely for any continued use of stolen photographs from this point on.

To find the origin of a photograph:

1) Right click on the photo. 

2) Select "Copy image URL" (Certain browsers do not support this feature.)  Google Chrome and Rockmelt are two that do.

3) Go to Google images and paste into search.

4) Click on "Search by image"

5) Scroll down to where it say's "Pages that include matching images"

5) The more you look around, you should be able to connect the many places where each and every photo was used like her "husbands" photo was found to be on several advertisements all over the internet etc...

I do not know how many screen shots are allowed here on ripoff so I will try to upload one of the screen shots of Ms. Vaughan claiming to be the mother of the baby and one of the fake husband Marty Varcaro.  If the site allows more, I will upload screen shots of various sites where stolen photos actually originate from.

Although..

AUTHOR: Business Owner - (USA)

POSTED: Thursday, August 30, 2012
The person in this report did not try to scam people into thinking she was connected business wise and celebrity wise this still falls into the same kind of con the woman in this article tried pulling off but did not get away with. She used photo shopped pictures of herself with celebrities. Not very good ones but did she fool some people? sure she did. 

The Talented Ms. Hornstein: How @Shirls Fooled The Valley

Silicon Valley is full of hustlers, and thats often a good thing. But theres a difference between hustling and flat-out lying, and when people deceive company after company, its time to call them out.So: If you look up Shirley Hornstein online, you might get the idea that shes one of the most well-connected people in tech. Here she is at the THRIVEGulu party last month, where Silicon Valley types got a chance to meet Hollywood geek heroes Joss Whedon and Eliza Dushku. Here she is at the Crunchies.

And here she is on a list of the top women in venture capital and angel investing (which was republished in Forbes).When it comes to Hornstein, however, it can be hard to tell whats true and whats not. Take the photo at the top of this post which was one of the first photos I saw when I connected with her on Facebook. Looks like she must be best buds with Justin Timberlake, right? Except that its almost certainly a Photoshopped fake, as you can see from the original photo, which we found through Google, below. You can see more examples of Hornsteins Photoshop mastery throughout this post.

And she isnt just claiming connections with with big celebrities. When I first met her more than a year ago, she kept talking about her connections to Sean Parker and Founders Fund though I dont think I ever pinned her down on her exact role at the firm. Looks like I wasnt the only one she convinced. In fact, Founders Fund took legal action to stop her from claiming that she worked for them. You can read their full complaint below, but heres a quote:Beginning no later than July of 2011.

Ms. Hornstein engaged in a pattern of conduct, which includes making false and misleading written and oral representations, designed to deceive potential business partners and employers into believing that she had prior and/or ongoing business and employment connections to Founders Fund and its partners. In fact, Ms. Hornstein is not now, nor has she ever been, an employee or business partner of Founders Fund or any Founders Fund Partner or executive.

As an example, Founders Fund points to a blog post that was published on the Women 2.0 site where Hornstein says she has experience working with a number of Silicon Valley companies, including iMeem, Nitro PDF, Dropbox, and Founders Fund. (The post has been taken down for reasons unknown, but you can read an archived copy here.) That representation was false, the complaint says.

The complaint also states, On September 16, 2011, Ms. Hornstein again claimed employment at Founders Fund in an electronic communication to a major entrepreneurial networking company. That representation was likewise false.Oh, and this wasnt mentioned in the complaint, but I was also told that Hornstein somehow attended Disrupt with a Founders Fund badge.

When Hornstein heard that I was writing this post, she emailed my editors to suggest that there were a lot of false rumors floating around about her. That may be true, and its also true you shouldnt take everything in a legal complaint as objective fact. But Ive spoken to a number of people about their personal and professional experiences with Hornstein, and well, the phrase web of lies came up repeatedly. (For whatever its worth, it doesnt appear that she has contested Founders Funds, and in fact the firm has filed for default judgment.)

Anonymous personal gripes (everyone insisted that I not use their names) should probably be viewed with at least a little skepticism, but as everyone told me their story, each one followed some pretty similar patterns. When they first met Hornstein, shed drop lots of names, claiming she was well-connected with celebrities and Silicon Valley bigshots. (One example: She said she was one of the first angel investors in Dropbox and helped them get into Y Combinator.) Shed find a way to get involved in each company, using promises of introductions to and meetings those aforementioned celebrities and bigshots.

Then if shed didnt get caught fairly quickly on a falsehood, the charade could drag on for a while, though with suspicions about things like her celeb-packed Instagram feed and the excuses about why she couldnt deliver. Until finally there was a lie too big to sustain, and everything came crashing down. Sometimes it was mostly just embarrassing, in other cases reputations or deals had been affected by the deception.One of my sources told me: If nothing else, Ive learned a valuable life lesson dont trust anyone until they deliver.

In the past year or so, it looks like Hornstein has been involved in some capacity in startups including Zaarly, Giftiki, and Postmates. Im pretty sure there were more, but those are the ones shes discussed with me in the past, or that Ive seen her mention online. Its hard to put an exact chronology together because most of the companies I reached out to declined to comment (Zaarly confirmed that she was worked as a consultant for several months in 2011), and Hornsteins LinkedIn profile is pretty barren...(Same as Mr. Marty Varcaro's Attorney at Law's was. Zero Connections really on a Law Firm in Atlanta GA? )

BOTTOM LINE SHE LIED 

I also emailed Hornstein this morning discuss the specifics of the post, but I havent heard back.Now, dragging up old accusations against someone who doesnt seem to be working at a major startup or venture firm might seem mean, especially in the context of this cryptic-but-contrite tweet from February: I get it Karma, I did some stupid stuff and now Im paying for it but I learned my lesson. I *really* did. Please stop torturing me? And look, Shirley Hornstein has never done anything bad to me. Except, yknow, lie. It sounds like shes done quite a bit of that around the Valley, and it seemed like it was time to bring that into the open before any other naive souls accept her friend request.

A con true but

AUTHOR: Business Owner - (USA)

POSTED: Wednesday, August 29, 2012
There are a lot of people on the Internet that make up fake persona's. It is done all the time on dating sites. Problem with doing it there is if you make a connection with someone who wants to meet you, you can't. 

The problem with what this woman did is not only did she con her friends she took babies pictures and fake husband etc off the net that where clearly copyrighted. 

I think people who do this type of grand scheme is they are either not happy with their real life or they feel so insecure that people will not accept them for who they are. They think that they will get more attention from people showing the most beautiful children, the most perfect of designer homes etc. Women do this when they take pictures of beautiful women and pretend it is one of them. The men are drawn to the vision they see. This gives the woman a feeling of being wanted although not real.  She only cares that she is getting some attention instead of thinking I want someone to love me! the real me. 

I actually think this woman needs to see a therapist. If her real family knew this or if I was her real child or friend I would advise her to seek help. I don't know her but I do know as fact she did deceive all of her friends and I am sure a lot of them are angry and hurt that she would try to trick them.  You would tend to think a teen doing it is more acceptable but a woman her age should be ashamed of herself.  

She can tell her friends as one poster here said damage control but how can you when the proof is here for all to see?  

One thing is for sure in the future if she decides to give birth again and post pictures people are not going to believe her.  She probably should just stick to her real facebook page and get rid of the fake one and move on. Although her personality clearly indicates she will probably do it again. So don't be surprised if she does. A person who went to that much trouble to invent a fake life has way too much time on her hands. Get a hobby maybe?

two thoughts

AUTHOR: Hmmmmmmmm - (United States of America)

POSTED: Wednesday, August 29, 2012
I have read this entire report and yes have seen what razzy is trying to do with counter measures if you will.

First thought. You cant fake screen shots. I also dont think anyone is attacking razzy per se or hurting her out of spite. No.

I think people feel conned. Understandable. To be honest its very hard to believe but I do believe there are or were two accts.

Now the second thing. WHY did razzy have a fake acct? Some people do it to keep real family separate true, but going as far as having your friends talk to a make believe husband isnt right.

I am one of the ones who was extremely surprised by Megans birth but you also cant hide age and no person gives birth in their mid 60s. I would have loved razzy without all the fake. She was always nice and funny but who knows why folks do what they do.

Just be yourself and none of this can come back to bite you. For anyone angry and hurt? Well, she cant and shouldnt blame them. Some will feel conned. Some will stick heads in the sand. Its ok to fake a name to be internet safe, but be who you are with all else. No need to create fake husbands or children. Give people credit for liking you for who you are.

This woman does have a facebook account under her real name with real pictures of her Husband ..Children...Grand Children etc. So not sure why she had the need to create another account to play house with a fake Husband and kids. But stranger things have happened I am sure on the Internet. 

The attached is her real life facebook page and a picture of her and her REAL Husband. I also have no idea why she still has up her fake account.

More pictures

AUTHOR: Business Owner - (USA)

POSTED: Tuesday, August 28, 2012
This 64 yr old woman has been scamming all of her Fb friends to believe she is glowing with the look of Motherhood.. Meanwhile in reality she is a Grandmother. 

She has stolen a good 10 pictures claiming them to be one baby. She has also used 2 pics of little boys stolen off of a modeling site and one she actually paid for but although she paid for her son Marcus licking a Birthday Cake..  The parents of this child did not bargain for someone paying for their sons picture to claim it is her child.  They do it for ads just as the male model above. I am sure he did not think some 64 yr old woman would claim him as her Husband. 

So although FB forced her to remove the pictures.. She still has pictures in private no doubt of her fake life and her fake kids. Just beware of this woman and her lies.. One must be mentally off to go to such lengths to create another life and family when she already has one.. Yes Granny you have one. 

Eventually all of your Fb friends will find out..What will you tell them? You were just kidding? People do not like to be lied to whether online friends or real life friends. 

Perhaps she needs help.. who knows? I do know that if one of the parents decides to press charges they can. And if a photographer wants to sue her they can. Enjoy Razzalina when you still have time. 

I have added 2 more pictures she claims to be Megan and Marcus . Marcus licking the cake .. That is from a site she paid for his likeness. The site is aware and is letting the parents know. The lovely baby in the tutu is also stolen from a site. Did anyone notice that all her baby pictures are not the same baby? And that the age doesn't move forward it moves back. I assure that her 2 made up kids will not grow up. They will remain babies. And does no one wonder why she is not in any pictures holding her baby? Or for that matter a group family portrait ? It just doesn't add up and of course we know that would be impossible for her to accomplish.

Well..You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time.

theft

AUTHOR: mashuni9_ - (United Kingdom)

POSTED: Tuesday, August 28, 2012
about being a baby mom when ur not?

its a crime.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Identity_theft



Identity theft

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Identity theft is a form of stealing someone's identity
in which someone pretends to be someone else by assuming that person's
identity, typically in order to access resources or obtain credit and
other benefits in that person's name. The victim of identity theft (here
meaning the person whose identity has been assumed by the identity
thief) can suffer adverse consequences if they are held accountable for
the perpetrator's actions. Identity theft occurs when someone uses your
personally identifying information, like your name, Social Security
number, or credit card number, without your permission, to commit fraud
or other crimes.

The term identity theft was coined in 1964[1] however it is not literally possible to steal an identityless ambiguous terms are identity fraud or impersonation.
"Determining the link between data breaches and identity theft is
challenging, primarily because identity theft victims often do not know
how their personal information was obtained," and identity theft is not
always detectable by the individual victims, according to a report done
for the FTC.[2]
Identity fraud is often but not necessarily the consequence of identity
theft. Someone can steal or misappropriate personal information without
then committing identity theft using the information about every
person, such as when a major data breach occurs. A US Government
Accountability Office study determined that "most breaches have not
resulted in detected incidents of identity theft".[3]
the report also warned that "the full extent is unknown". A later
unpublished study by Carnegie Mellon University noted that "Most often,
the causes of identity theft is not known," but reported that someone
else concluded that "the probability of becoming a victim to identity
theft as a result of a data breach is ... around only 2%".[4]
More recently, an association of consumer data companies noted that one
of the largest data breaches ever, accounting for over four million
records, resulted in only about 1,800 instances of identity theft,
according to the company whose systems were breached.[5]
A recent article entitled, Cyber Crime Made Easy" explained the
level to which hackers are using malicious software. As one security
specialist named Gunter Ollmann
said, Interested in credit card theft? Theres an app for that. This
statement summed up the ease with which these hackers are accessing all
kinds of information online. The new program for infecting users
computers is called Zeus;
and the program is so hacker friendly that even an inexperienced hacker
can operate it. Although the hacking program is easy to use, that fact
does not diminish the devastating effects that Zeus (or other software
like Zeus) can do to a computer and the user. For example, the article
stated that programs like Zeus can steal credit card information,
important documents, and even documents necessary for homeland security.
If the hacker were to gain this information, it would mean identity
theft or even a possible terrorist attack. (Giles, Jim. "Cyber Crime
Made Easy." New Scientist 205.2752 (2010): 20-21. Academic Search

Why create a life not yours?

AUTHOR: Business Owner - (United States of America)

POSTED: Tuesday, August 28, 2012
I have to say that some people just do not know when a lie has gone too far. 

In this persons case she not only lied but took it one step further and committed illegal acts. 

Bringing innocent victims to her scheme who have been alerted and were not happy. 

As a parent if I found out someone claimed to be the Mother of my child I would be prosecuting. The model/photographer who was used should be making sure she removes all traces of any association with her. He is not her Husband he is a 26 yr old man. 

She is moving faster than lightening now to remove all traces of her crimes but not fast enough.

This is public information so I wonder why Ms. Vaughan thinks all her "friends" are stupid.

I hope they all see this information soon.

People are not stupid and what is wrong with your real life Ms. Vaughan?

Her real husbands name is Bill.  He's at least 35 to 40 years older then Mr. Monu.

Mr. Monu is NOT a Marty Varcaro.  Mr. Monu is NOT the father of Megan Rose or some little black kid licking icing off a cake.

After googling Ms. Vaughan she also appears to have a Youtube account that shows her and Mr. Monu singing duets together.  This just gets better and better.

Ms. Vaughan also has an account on a music site called singsnap.com under the same name of Razzalina.

Mr. Marty Varcaro aka Nicholas Monu also has an account on singsnap.com.
