Here are links to all of her profiles through the web:!/manikphotograph/ (both are hers because she has so many fans!) <--another blog with a real name.

She claims working for: #Elle, #Versace, +FashionTV, #SanFranciscoChronicle, #MetropolitanMuseumOfArt, +Ford Models, +W Hotels Worldwide, +Vanity Fair, +Volkswagen USA, +Leica Camera, +Audi USA, #Loreal, +Land Rover USA, +Artful Dodger, +National Geographic, +BMW USA, +Vogue, +Ford Motor Company, +TOYOTA, +Australian Geographic, #ArtGalleryOfWesternAustralia & more!

I'm pretty sure she has now blocked me and will likely do the same. All links should still work. PLEASE post here or email me if you have any links that I missed or anything I should add.

I'd suggest that you guys go through her links and make sure she isn't claiming any of your work. If she is, take the appropriate measures and let me know. I'll add you to this post! * We aren't going to put up with stealing*, right guys?!

Edit: She doesn't seem to take much of this seriously.

Thanks goes to +Olav Folland & +Giuseppe Basile for their discoveries.

Google+ seems to be a little slow in taking this person down.
Thank you for this enormous amount of work you have done.
Remind me not to get on the wrong side of you :-)
+Susan Core thank you for this information, I can't believe a person could do such an embarrassing things, stole other people's works ! :(
I appreciate the work that you have done to out this scammer +Susan Core . While I am not one of the ones who has had my work stolen by him/her, I did have a similar situation happen to me last year on both Flickr and Facebook with my own work. The G+ community has really stepped up here. Bravo.
I wish we could do this with every thief.. but sadly we can't. This one was just too massive to pass up! Thanks +Ian Thomas and everyone else who has worked hard to put a stop to this. Maybe +Brian Rose will handle thing tomorrow, at least from the Google side!
she's stealing people's artwork, very likely also faking her workplace or where she's freelancing. some of my friends whom are photographers have passed this information to their forums/communities so i hope soon we can figure out who she really is. i suspect her primary motive is earning money from google adsense. hence, take her adsense/google account down, and her website plus accounts in which sites she got involved. i'll share it right away.
There is no Jawa Pos reporter named Manik Nur Haq. Jawa Pos strictly has no contributors for its news nor photo.
I can't believe this persons profile is still up.
Based on your help and a member from Fotoblur we've removed this account from our systems. Thank you.
Re-shared! Thank you Susan.
Impressive work in putting all this together! Meaning assembling all this evidence. Will repost.
Awesome thanks for the heads up! That page has been Blocked & Reported.
Yes, Thank you for keeping an eye out...
Update: I got confirmation today from Fotoblur (via their Twitter account) that her "_portfolio_" has now been removed from their website. One down, a few more to go.
I see the profile has finally be taken down..
Success (albeit only a small win) - good work team :)
Good work! Thanks for the effort...
