Mumble Discussions: Stealing stories

    mumbled "Stealing stories"

    4 years agoReply
    Due to people being ignorant, rude and lack the ability to know what's theirs and what's not. I have come to the conclusion that I will take my stories off of this website if I one more time see them being stolen from me. These were stories I wrote as a teenager trying to put together my biggest creativity and now someone's stealing my stories again.
    I've contacted Movellas and their owners and is waiting for the fake stories to come off the website. If the stories are not taken down I'll try to reach the owner and get him to help me.

    Omg what stories? I wont read them unless they're on your page. That's horrible! I am so sorry this happened to you.

    I wrote a story called "Love at first sight" in 2012, and someone posted it on their page back in August and a few days back someone blamed me for ripping off another person's story that was actually mine.
    What pisses me off the most was that my story was one of the most popular stories for a long time and then someone else just comes and take credit for it when I was working so damn hard to make the most of it. It's like the third time someone is stealing this exact story instead of writing their own.

    Is it called "Forever With Niall Horan"? Funnily enough, I already saved your For The Love Of... stories so that I could read them, if that counts for anything. I didn't know who the author was, I just added them to my read later like last week, haha.

    Trust me I know what you're going through. My story on here 'The Third Wheel' was stolen and posted on Wattpad. I also posted it on Wattpad but I didn't even know the person had claimed my book for MONTHS. I tried contacting Wattpad but they were so slow and if it wasn't for the help of my friends and some amazing readers, my book would have gone unnoticed and the person was like, "should I post a sequel" how could she when I hadn't even written it or planned on writing one. The account owner who stole my book said she was 'hacked' but I dunno. I'll help in anyway, I was a victim of this too and its honestly terrible when I find out people do this.

    It's making me so sick. Like if you want the popularity of writing a story, then go write your own damn stuff instead of stealing it from someone who probably worked their ass off to make it happen and for their stories to become something!

    To be honest, people can be so lazy. Like if you're not willing to put in the effort then don't bother. I know how they were able to steal my book, sadly on Movellas if you have the app you can copy and paste and I'm guessing that's how the people who stole our books did it. I think they should really work on that because this is the third case (including mine) I've seen this year. The other person was like really popular on Wattpad. The person even pretended to be the original author >:|

    I'm going to e-mail the owner in the morning and let him know where the issue is.

    so sorry this had to happen to you guys. To be honest, I am terrified that this will happen to me. I only write on Movellas, so, I am worried they'll take it and run to Wattpad or something...

    You always have to keep an eye out. Like everyone is just taking everything from everyone and it's literally pissing me of. Like what's up with people?!
    I really really hope this never happens to you darling! It's so frustrating to be fair.
