Default Fraud "photography" caught using stolen images for portfolio!

(sorry if this was already posted)
I'm a fan of alex michele photography on facebook- her work is amazing. http://www.facebook.com/alexmichelephotography

A couple weeks ago another facebook fan found some images that belonged to alex on 'jayde madison' photography portfolio! She had been using other photographers images for her own portfolio! It's built up so much hype that it was on the evening news in Viriginia recently. Apparently the BBB is getting involved and there are 8 clients who have come forward with complaints as well. Just thought I would share. It really is disgusting that someone would do this.

Check out this video from the TV station here:
