MiniWorld Mobilizes to Catch A Thief!
Small sleuths in the miniatures world have noticed that retail and social media site My Tiny Objects (Instagram: @mytinyobjects) is using images without authorization or credit and selling miniatures which make it appear as though they are hand made by them!
One image posted on their website (which has since been taken down) is a well-known image of a miniatures tool chest created by Bill Robertson and offered at $29.99 (Horrors!).
The miniatures world is not having it. Facebook posts are being shared widely alerting folks to beware of any purchases at this site.
So Beware and don't purchase from My Tiny Objects and report to sites like Facebook, PayPal, Stripe and Instagram.
