Well all, I discovered something very disturbing this morning. There is a person on Twitter, using the username @CaylaKluver, who is impersonating me. This person has cultivated 1300 followers and I wasn't even aware that it was happening.
To follow ME on Twitter, plug in the username @CaylaKL.
There are a number of things I'd like to say about this issue, but I'm going to try to keep it short and sweet. First, I feel violated and abused. Thankfully pretending to be me on Twitter has not allowed this person access to my personal life, but the idea that someone had the gall to use my name, my face, and my accomplishments to benefit him or herself is abhorrent and disgusting.
Second, I would like to apologize to my fans, especially the 1300 people who are currently following the fake Cayla Kluver. Whoever this person is has been responding to you, giving you updates, and misleading you. I adore every single one of my fans. I have the utmost respect for you, and I am monumentally grateful for your support. This person has taken advantage of you, and abused and violated your trust.
I have contacted Twitter about this problem. My publisher is looking at potential action to take. My agent is furious, and all of us are trying to spread the word and shut this account down.
What you can do to help:
1) If you are following @CaylaKluver, un-follow this user immediately and instead follow me at @CaylaKL.
2) Report the user @CaylaKluver for spam and inappropriate conduct to protect other users and encourage Twitter to examine this account.
3) If you know anyone who is following @CaylaKluver, inform them about this scam at once, and direct them to the @CaylaKL Twitter page.
4) Tweet about this, and re-tweet. Share anywhere and everywhere.
Thank you so much for your support, and hopefully together we can fix this situation.
Love and apologies,
