Model Mayhem suffers second security breach in nine months revealing private member information

Late in the afternoon of January 10th, 2011 members began reporting getting logged in as some other members giving them complete access to another members’ account including private emails. This is the second time this has happened in nine months. The first time was back in April 2010. During that incident, Model Mayhem refused to send out a site wide announcement alerting members to the security breach.

Late in the afternoon of January 10th, 2011 members began reporting getting logged in as other members giving them complete access to another members’ account including private emails. This is the second time this has happened in nine months. The first time was back in April 2010. During that incident, Model Mayhem refused to send out a site wide announcement alerting members to the security breach. They elected instead to send out limited emails to some members whom they suspected were affected. At the time, I pointed out that such limited notifications were inadequate. Model Mayhem’s email system, which does not allow permanent deletion of emails, shows both sides of the conversation so a single account breach exposes hundreds of other members’ email conversations if that one member had exchanged emails with hundreds of members. It is simply impossible to determine which accounts were compromised. Continue reading “Model Mayhem suffers second security breach in nine months revealing private member information”

Michelle Marie Gopaul setup fake casting to kidnap an infant

The NY Post is reporting that Gopaul setup a fake casting call looking for a baby girl of Indian background to star in a Bollywood movie offering up to $7,500 for the role. Parents Viral and Sejal Patel decided to bring Roma. Oddly, the parents were not suspicious even as the audition took place at 10 pm at night.

More details are emerging about the case of Michelle Marie Gopaul who was arrested in Toronto last Thursday night for kidnapping a one month old infant during a fake audition.

The NY Post is reporting that Gopaul setup a fake casting call looking for a baby girl of Indian background to star in a Bollywood movie offering up to $7,500 for the role. Parents Viral and Sejal Patel decided to bring Roma. Oddly, the parents were not suspicious even as the audition took place at 10 pm at night. Once Gopaul found a baby to her liking, she told the Patels she wanted to bring the infant into the other room to see how she interacted with others. Gopaul then quickly bolted out the back door into a waiting taxi.

Baby Roma was recovered just 3 hours later when a man recognized the infant and Gopaul. There’s probably more to this part of the story as the Amber alert had not been issued at this point yet.

Gopaul clearly has other issues. She told friends she was pregnant and was expecting in October even going as far as throwing a baby shower and registering for gifts at Babies R Us. She was an aspiring model and claimed bit parts in movies. Her account on Model Mayhem has since been deactivated.

Hide your children! Model Mayhem model Michelle Marie Gopaul arrested for snatching infant during a casting.

Police in Toronto are investigating why a NY model/actress would snatch a one month old infant during a commercial audition Thursday night. Toronto police were called to the scene by the hysterical parents after the one month old infant went missing after being moved to another room by the model after she told the parents she was involved with the audition.

Michelle Marie Gopaul, 24, of New York City, has been arrested and charged with abduction of a person under 14. The baby was recovered unharmed around 3 a.m., right before an Amber Alert was about to be issued. Police would not say if the person returning the infant was Gopaul.

Gopaul has an account on Model Mayhem and states she has been interested in acting since age 13. She list her credits in the film The Interpreter and a commercial for American Express in 2006. There is no IMDB listing for a Michelle Gopaul and she is not credited in the listing for The Interpreter although minor roles often go uncredited.

On her Myspace page (no link due to malware on her page), Gopaul showcases her musical talents and quotes Shakespeare.

Gopaul is scheduled to appear in court at Old City Hall on Saturday at 10 a.m.

Following up on the case of Alton Everett Smith and Kristilyn Smith, both have now been sentenced along with Smith’s wife Tina Marie Smith. Members of Model Mayhem may recall that both Alton Smith and his daughter Kristilyn Smith were both frequent forum posters in escort threads. For unknown reasons, Smith focused his wrath on several photographers on the site including an odd obsession with SLEPhoto.

The incest charges in multiple Florida counties stem from Smith fathering a child with his own daughter. To make matters worse, the case also involved prostitution, child neglect, and child pornography.

Kristilyn Smith, 27, was charged with incest and child neglect in both Flagler and Volusia County in Florida. She pleaded no contest to incest charges in Volusia county and pleaded no contest to child neglect charges in Flagler and received probation of 5 years and 15 years to run concurrently.

Alton E. Smith Jr., 48, pleaded guilty to two counts of incest, one count of living off the earnings of prostitution and 52 counts of possession of child pornography. He was sentenced to 15 years in prison, followed by 15 years’ sex-offender probation and will be required to register as a sex offender.

Tina Marie Smith, 45, who is Alton Smith’s wife and Kristilyn Smith’s stepmother, pleaded guilty to aggravated child abuse and was sentenced to 10 years’ sex-offender probation. She will not be listed as a sex offender.
