By accident, I stumbled across a website: pindiy
They have my copy righted patterns, as well as tons of other artists. It says you can contact them, tells ya how, and there's no way to do it unless you sign up and give them your info.
This is a MALICIOUS site. From what I've gleaned so far, people can anonymously put anyone's patterns up and sell them or offer for free. With mine, they've uploaded a photo of the front of my pattern pages. So they aren't denying they are my patterns, but it also appears like I am the one offering them.
** I AM NOT. **
So far I've found 17 of my patterns on here!
They DO NOT have my permission.
I've also learned this site will steal your personal info as well as your financial info and when you download the PDF patterns, they put virus' in them somehow.
So please, DO NOT download anything from this site.
I'm still trying to figure out how to contact them to take my patterns off, but not sure how, and there's no way I'm signing up for this site.
So be forewarned. And know that I am not putting my patterns on there.
Thanks so much and if anyone has any suggestions... feel free to leave a post or contact me.
Have a blessed day
