DISHONEST DUO STEALS PHOTOGRAPHER'S PHOTO, RIPOFF PEOPLE & SELLS IT FOR $6000

First, I want congrats myself because the ‘pirated copy’ of one my picture was valued at S$ 6,000.00. Hence, I think the original copy could worth tens of thousands.

That was a happy morning on the 5th of November 2015, I was browsing Yahoo News and this title caught my attention - Singapore to hold first large-scale wildlife art exhibition. I click in and view on those very beautiful animal art works, and shockingly I saw my picture there, what the…..by 2nd looks, it was not picture but was a pencil artwork. (See this for reference https://sg.news.yahoo.com/photos/singapore-to-hold-first-large-scale-wil...)

The Artist named Ying Cai (or Cai Ying), exhibition organizer was Mandala WildLife Arts, and Ying Cai is also the co-founder of Mandala.

I am trying to be happy and learn to respect living here although my heart is in Japan.
