Facebook Stalker Victims

Throughout 2010, an impostor has been using Facebook to gain the confidence of activists, journalists, authors, members of Congress, and prominent members of public interest groups.

Operating under the fictitious names “Gregory Davis”, “Preston G. Davis”, and “Gregoire525″, this individual has friended more than 300 people, gaining access to the personal information and status updates they have posted.

Many of those individuals were maligned on websites run by the Center for Consumer Freedom (CCF), an industry-funded astroturf group that specializes in vicious smear campaigns against public interest groups, vegans, environmentalists, animal welfare, and the charities associated with them.

We have a suspect in the impersonation. He has an aggressive anti-activist agenda, a reported history of stalking, a history of substance abuse… and apparently, a concealed weapons permit.

The following is a partial list of individuals victimized by the impersonator. Each has been targeted with negative profiles on CCF websites.
