One would think that pet food companies have better things to do than to spy on a little Caped Crusader. But that doesn’t seem to be the case. What they do – I share with all of you. So…here is the latest.
I am lucky enough to have many people who work in the pet food industry (pet food and pet feed) trust me and share information with me. I have friends that work in pet food manufacturing plants all over the U.S., friends that are scientists, friends that work in labs, friends that work for ingredient manufacturers.
And I am unlucky enough to have my phone tapped (or it appears that way). This was happening quite frequently several months back (April 2015), and to combat their spying I shared with all of you that story and then things seemed to quiet down for a while. But over the past couple of months similar things are happening again. Several times last week and yesterday, while I was on the phone with one of these friends in industry – they received an incoming call from me. I was on the phone with them – but at the same time they were receiving another call from me (same phone number). Messages are not received, texts are not received, phone calls are not received, and on multiple occasions someone pretending to be me – calling from my phone number – has spoken with several of my friends in industry. Spoken with a mystery me (not the real me).
A select few of my friends in industry are experiencing the same things in their circle of friends, but only a select few of us. A select few of us have been targeted and we are clearly being monitored.
To these spies:
I’m not doing anything wrong or illegal. Can you say the same? What are you so afraid of that you have to resort to spying?
Believe me – if I can ever track down who is doing this – I will tell everyone. And to these spies…be forewarned, there are many pet food consumers who happen to work in the tech industry. There are a LOT of very smart, very talented pet food consumers out there who are sick and tired of the games of Big Pet Feed. After I first announced your spy tactics, some of these people offered me their expertise to help. Again to these spies…if we track you down, we will name names.
I don’t believe all in Big Pet Feed are so desperate to hide their secrets they hire people to spy on a consumer advocate – so to those companies that are innocent in this, I suggest to you – tell the guilty to stop the nonsense. I’m confident most in industry knows who the companies are that hire spies, and I’m fairly confident most in industry knows why too. I suggest to the innocent, tell the guilty to knock it off. This kind of behavior is uncalled for, makes everyone in industry look bad and personally I’m sick of it.
Each time you do this – I will share with pet food consumers.
To consumers and to my friends whose lives are also being monitored:
We are doing nothing wrong or illegal. We are trying to help people and their pets – that is all. We are doing the right thing, they are not.
