EmpireKred Staff member and noted plagiarist (leader, former team leader and current Admin of the “welcome wagon forum”) Nance Larson has deleted or set for deletion two accounts recently due to potential plagiarism.
Those would be her wordpress blog and Facebook page.
(The facebook page hasn’t been completely deleted, but as you can see it’s set for deletion.)
It is my contention that Nance Larson’s continued presence in any capacity at EmpireKred is the “mockery” as his her abusing customer removing them from a forum they paid to enjoy the benefits of.
Nance Larson is simply an abusive person, and should not be tolerated as admin, staff, volunteer, leader or in any capacity I think.
No customer of Empire Avenue owed Nance Larson or Empire Avenue purely positive social media posts or commentary or reblogs.
Nance Larson is the epitome of awful customer service and participated in doxing of a customer and did nothing to stop the abuse.
No one wants to be Nance Larson (or any other staff member’s “learning” experience.
Let’s review her Instagram!
The Empire Avenue ToS (and I believe Nance was turning in people for photos and harassing them a little over a year and a half ago) stipulates that there can be no posts that violate or potentially violate anyone’s rights.
So let’s toodle on over to Nance’s instagram to compare her feed to Empirekred’s ToS.
We are speaking about a person that recently deleted 2 social media accounts, so no telling what we will find!
The rules, only clear and obvious potential violations will be noted.
First impressions are obviously a personal Instagram account with her own work posted.
Nance Larson is a photographer so I expect to see some high quality photos. Thus I will need to check any stills, scenes, etc with TinEye.
Photos such as this one. Which I post here to run tineye on. (Fair Use).
Clean. The other still are of consistent quality and artistic merit. I defer any further searchers.
Obvious memes that are simply everywhere are discounted.
The obvious advertisements for retail establishments that would reasonably be pleased that she’s posting are reasonably discounted, with the thought that said retail establishments would probably like people to know where Nance might be shopping for that great wicker furniture.
There ya go.
Those 3 are not “taken by Nance” by the way…
Keep scrolling for more past that one.
That’s not Nance’s work. I know that for a fact. There’s no citation, even a link and no source.
And you have to ask yourself.
Do you want to be the customer of a game that gives some customers (that they call “players”) the ability to remove other customers from paid for benefits without any due process? Simply because one “player” didn’t like what the other reblogged on yet another social media platform?
That’s what Nance Larson did.
It’s beyond astonishing, and quite frankly one of the most abusive acts towards any customer I’ve seen on Empire Avenue, as far as direct abuse of authority, by a person who acknowledges her own authority.
That she contacted that customer on Facebook instead of on Empire Avenue is even more reason to watch out for the “goon squad” of Empire Avenue (now EmpireKred) as Nance Larson and the others remain customers and leaders with Nance Larson as staff.
Over 5 posts on my blogs I documented issues with Empire Avenue, from their rogue volunteers, running a “wall of shame” on Brands, attacking Brands reputations online, not answering complaints, having a “goon squad” of endorsed volunteers attacking customers who complained, refusing to discipline internally thereby encouraging more attacks on Brands, etc. What I witnessed was the worst travesty in the annals of customer service I have ever seen. After a month of private discussions with EA to change things, I went public. Only then did they begin to change, but the attacks on me and others grew by their “goon squad.” In the end, I went to EA’s Angel Investor and EA had to shut down its Chat Room and Chat Mod “goons squad.” EA shamelessly has never apologized or produced it damning chat logs as promised by their CEO. This is one of those posts, you can read the rest by Search in the upper right for ‘Empire.’ Don’t play EA or if you do save your REAL money.
Nance Larson remains a Leader and identified as “Staff” by the EmpireKred website.
Avoid EmpireKred until they clean up or rid themselves of such abusive people.
