Emily Harper is scum.

Now, in fairness, this 'Emily Harper' almost certainly does not exist. However, someone claiming to be Emily Harper, stealing another person's photo, is very 'real', representing the underbelly of the Internet age.

Familiar logo.

Here's the synopsis of this entire wayback

'Emily Harper' is originally from Brooklyn, but now lives in Los Angeles with her husband and local L.A. architect (and sometimes military man), James Harper.... who built Emily their dream house to entice her to make the move to L.A.

The 'Harpers' are both coffee drinkers.

The loving professional couple have two adorable boys, Charlie, 12 and Scott, 10.

Pictured above is the loyal family dog, Arthur. The cat, Theodore, is camera shy. The Harper clan may or may not have an additional, unnamed dog.

Before 'Emily' moved to LA and began blogging (here), she had been published in numerous national publications including (but not limited to) Nerve, Fence Magazine, Redbook, Wellesley Magazine, Good Housekeeping, Parents, Ladies Home Journal, The Onion, The Sun and PBS.org....

Note: 'Emily' swiped that pic above with 'Arthur' from Kimberly Gadette's own page here

Here's the bowling pic she uses in her securityocean blog (note her trademark signature in the bottom left (EH)

'Emily' swiped that pic from this dude

Quite the elaborate ruse... :)

Wait- isn't that "Mr. Clean" in the logo? Looks like he has a new job- or his image was "borrowed" as well.
