To Molinaphoto885 and whomsoever else it may concern…

I have been accused in my ‘Contacts’ page by the above addressee of infringement of copyright on an image or images on this blog. The email sought to direct me to a site wherein, it said, there would be references to the material in question. It did not give me direct references to the image/images. or the articles in this blog where they are purported to have been used.

I will not open links sent to me in communications of any kind, unless they are from trusted senders. Any information which requires action from me must be included in the text of the email, or other communication, itself.

I never intentionally breach copyright, to which end it is normal for me to use sites that offer material free for commercial use. There are plenty out there to choose from. If I unintentionally display copyrighted material, the copyright owner need only contact me as stipulated above and I will immediately remove it. I have no wish to offend.

My attempted response to this accusation will not ‘send’ to the email address supplied – it is refused by the server, which makes me think I am justified in treating this as a scam. I may be wrong, and if I am I will happily apologize to Monica at Molinaphoto885 as soon as I receive the relevant information, including an email address to which I have the right of reply.

If I am not, this is a warning to all my blogging friends out there of a possible scam I have not encountered before. Maybe you have? Please let me know!
