Beware of fraud

It has come to my attention recently that there are a few rogue websites out there claiming to be “official” sites that use my name and likeness. Some of them are even asking you for money for newsletters, videos, subscriptions and books.

THIS AND OUR FACEBOOK PAGE (http://www.facebook.com/BernandoLaPallo) ARE THE ONLY OFFICIALLY  AUTHORIZED INTERNET OUTPOSTS FOR BERNANDO LAPALLO AND AGE LESS, LIVE MORE.

All others are fake and are trying to capitalize on my history.

Unfortunately, the Internet can be a place where people take advantage of others and intellectual property laws can be flouted. I apologize if any of you have had a bad experience with any of these phony websites. Please know that we are taking all necessary legal steps to have these sites shut down, but please help me spread the word.

Thank you for all your support, and I apologize again if anyone has been harmed by these other sites.

    The best you can do is warn the people you can. Due to extremely weak enforcement along these lines, it is almost impossible to actually get such sites shut down and it’s best not to waste your time trying beyond possibly sending a simple cease and desist letter. At least take heart that if you weren’t there for them to leech off of, they’d leech off of some other target. Here, watch this video (click here), to see what I mean, it was made about the most notorious site on the internet for doing this, which is STILL going after years and years and years.

    Hi Bernando,
    Greetings from Sydney, Australia.
    Congratulations on becoming the world’s oldest blogger. I’ve written a story about you, which I’d like you to vet before publication.
    Please tell me your email address.

    Best wishes. Eric.
