She Was An Instagram Star… Until Someone Noticed Her Photos Looked 'Familiar.'
It's becoming increasingly difficult to be original online. There's so many repeats of everything, it's rare to come across something different. In fact, it's so easy to replicate others on the Internet that some people have even stooped low enough to steal others' photos and claim it as their own. Stealing is never a good idea, especially on the Internet! Not only will you inevitably get caught, you will be exposed for the fraud you are!
Unfortunately, Thai air hostess, Louktarn Ticha, didn't realize this was her fate when she first started stealing photos and posting them as her own on Instagram. The end result? Let's just say her account has completely disappeared.
Ticha has been stealing people's photos and Photoshopping herself into them. She would then proceed to post the photos on her Instagram account without crediting and of the original photographers.
Ticha was soon exposed for what she was doing as social media users began posting her photos alongside the original photos found on the Internet.
One of the pictures she stole belonged to a Finnish landscape photographer, Tiina Törmänen. The Finnish Embassy in Bangkok couldn't resist from posting a joke about it on their Facebook page.
They posted, “Northern lights in Finland are so beautiful that many people wish they could experience them…" alongside an article exposing Ticha's suspicious online activity.
In another photo, the flight attendant posted on her Instagram account, she simply photoshopped herself into a photo that was shot and published by emirates (the airline she works for).
