Update #5 (8/25/09): Rachel has now been tweeting under RIP_M_J. Capitalizing on "tragedy" or big news story has been an MO of hers for awhile, and in her previous account, she had mocked Michael Jackson.
She's been going full-force with this one, pretending to be at Playboy Mansion parties, in the Angels' dugout, Disneyland, etc. All by stealing others online pictures as before.
I've been monitoring it for awhile and was not going to say anything. I figure "twitterer beware" and others would have to figure it out for themselves. But I've kept a record of the stolen pics just in case.
She has started trying to drag the names of good people through the mud again and I've send her vague warnings without outing her (and I know she got them). Tonight it happened again and it was the last straw for me so I've now outed her on Twitter again.
I'll write a new blog post about this new account if I have to but hopefully the tweets will suffice.
Update #4 (6/29/09): The original Twitter account used by Rachel is now being used by someone else who has nothing to do with this scandal whatsoever.
Update #3 (5/5/09): In case you had any doubt, I wanted to let you know that the real Milo Ventimiglia's Twitter account (@dividepictures) has been confirmed by Valebrity here. Milo also mentions his Twitter account at the end of this video. Any other account claiming to be Milo is fraudulent and will be dealt with.
Dino is a very close friend of Milo's (you can see Milo's tweets to him), and has stated publicly that Rachel has been asking for donations for a fake cancer charity using Milo's name (this, more than anything, has driven me to continue these updates, especially after losing several loved ones to this disease...I am beyond disgusted by this).
I was sent these MySpace links and thought I should post them in case any of you use that network. Be careful on there as well and spread the word among your MySpace friends:
There's another "Erin" profile involved but I don't want to out that account until I know more.
I was sent this Google cached version of a Twitpic where you can see Rachel claiming to be in remission from cancer on one of her fake Jensen Ackles accounts (and talking to herself with her other identities....there are also a few of her victims commenting there so please don't lump them all together).
I have updated the Twitter links below with the latest scam accounts.
Update #2: Rachel is on the move. New accounts include (these are being constantly changed...I will update the links each time they do, so check back again if the current links don't work. yes i am determined, lol. she should not be able to get away with doing this): @its_rayray AND
I wanted to post an update for those of you who are wondering where everything stands with the "twitterjacking" scandal (got that term from this story which I think does a good job of explaining the seriousness of this problem). Be sure to read the original post if you haven't already done so.
First of all, I want to extend my thanks to all of you for the amazing comments and support. While there are a handful of people who are actually defending these fake accounts (who knows how many could be Rachel herself, though), most people have been so wonderful and have helped expose this scam artist as well. Good people are awesome. :)
Also, for those of you who expressed that you feel "stupid" for being taken in by this person....please don't feel that way. Wanting to believe in someone, trusting, and trying to see the good in people...those are all good traits. And ones which this person capitalizes on. It's not you....it's her.
Most of the pics linked in the original post have been removed (the fake ones at least). Dino and the real Milo Ventimiglia have been aware of "Rachel London" for awhile now and are working directly with Twitter on this.
I now know it is one MAIN person (Rachel) behind all of this and that there are up to 10 fake profiles of celebrities and fake friends or family she has created. She is from Tustin, CA and has been doing this for more than three years....first on MySpace and Facebook, now Twitter.
And for the few people who don't understand why this is serious, click here. Not only are reputations of good people at stake, but many people are being conned and have given donations to someone they believe has cancer. Legal action is being taken against this woman now.
Twitter has removed the fake Milo account, but the Twitpics remain. "Rachel" has now set up a new fake Milo account here (update: Twitter has suspended this account).
The fake Jensen account came down (don't know if that was through Twitter or "Rachel"), but a new one has been set up here. Twitpics for the previous fake account are still up as well.
Here is a full list of the fake profiles I am aware of (links updated as they continue to change):
~Original Rachel (now inactive)
~Rachel#4 (now inactive)
~Rachel #6 (an account she started as the "president" of ballplayer baron davis' beard...I know, right?).
~Rachel #9 (@RIP_M_J)
~Rachel #10 (@Team_Jackson)
~Rachel #11 (@Team__Jackson) LATEST RACHEL ACCOUNT
~Fake Milo Ventimiglia (now suspended by Twitter)
~Fake Jensen Ackles
