Fake Hair-Product Review

Hm.  Someone just emailed me to ask whether I had posted a fulsome review of a hair product online.  I hadn’t (as should be obvious to anyone who’s read my books.  As IF I would write run-on sentences…!), but the name on the review was Diana Gabaldon.

Now, in all justice, I’m not the only person in the world with that name. [g]  I’ve met at least two others, and there may be more.  But I definitely didn’t make positive comments about any sort of hair product, ever.  Just so you know.

  1. Diana, with your full head of hair, I don't see how!! :D

  2. This is just too funny! Thanks for a good laugh :)

  3. Diana, I am not on Facebook, but my DH used to be until his entire list of friends got contacted about the new 4G iphone. Turns out it was a sort of virus. Maybe this is what happened to you. . .

  4. Dear Anonymous–

    No, it's nothing on my computer. It's a website for the company producing said hair product, which has several favorable comments under the product's listing. Someone saw it, thought the writing style didn't sound like me (which it doesn't), and emailed to ask me whether I'd actually left such a comment. Which I hadn't. No viruses involved.

  5. I wish there was a "like" button to hit for this!

  6. Thanks for sharing, this is a fantastic article.Thanks Again. Want more.
