Continuing from the thread I started.

 

Basically, people over at http://www.naturallycurly.com/ discovered a link between Moptop Maven a.k.a Nikole Crowe (previously scammed people) and a Natural haircare company called Enso Naturals. Nikole's name was on an email. This got people's backs up and they decided to enquire, rather than address the rumour quickly and keep it moving,  they kept quiet and started to remove traces of her from their email/website.

 

ENSO NATURALS

This comment that was left on Enso Natural's page was deleted.

Hey! I just found out that MoptopMaven is the guru behind this hair care line. I'm so excited!!!! I love her hair and I'm glad she got better and started Enso!!! God Bless you chica! Can you please update your blog?? lol we miss you.

Then they started to send cease and desist letters to people that dared to question what was happening.


This poster created a post about Enso and questioned the links to Nikole

She was sent a cease and desist letter for simply asking questions. The lady took the letter to her

lawyer and who poked a few holes in it

NIKOLE CROWE/MOPTOP MAVEN

As recently as the 5th of August people were still leaving messages for MOP TOP praying for her well being. Other people angered by Enso's silence took the drama over to MOPTOP's page.

 

does this look like the face of a scammer?

 

 

 

It started with someone "subtly" posting some info on consumer complaints and fraud on MTM's facebook page. And it went on from there...what does MOPTOP MAVEN aka NIKOLE CROWE (aka ENSO NATURALS) do? She briefly addresses the rumours about Enso on twitter, says nothing about her jewellery line and diverts the attention to another tragedy   child died hours after birth. And then blocks her twitter page from being viewed. I would be inclined to be sympathetic, if she hadn't pulled a similar stunt before claiming that she was sick to get out of sending people their items or refunding them. Also, why is this child just being mentioned now? She lost the child in April. So odds are, she would have been pregnant in February when she got ill and she stopped blogging. Was she aware of the baby when she was out doing this in Dec/Feb?

 

 

not the face of a scammer.Cry

she is having the Philliptini - grey goose and lychee.

For months, she was too sick to blog or refund people's money, but once her new scheme is exposed she is suddenly well enough to delete messages and update her twitter on the death of her son?

 

More twitter

 

 

 

I used to read her blog and I always wondered how she funded her lifestyle because to the best of my knowledge she was unemployed. Yet, she was going to fancy-shmancy restaurants and parties.

 

Her facebook:

ENSO and MOPTOP MAVEN/NIKOLE

Nikole’s e-personality on LHCF is Gabanna girl and she has mentioned that she used to sell raw ingredients to salons and make her own products…http://www.longhaircareforum.com/showthread.php?t=325123

Using the same e-personality on a different site: http://www.curlynikki.com/2009/02/gabbana-girl.html

 

Also all her business ventures use the same web design site:

 

Enso: http://www.wix.com/ensonaturals/enso-naturals/master-page-3#%21__master-page-2

Photography: http://www.wix.com/nikolecrowe2010/nikole-crowe-photography

Her Jewellery: http://www.wix.com/frankandmyrrh/fandm2#!page-6

Used/vintage clothing: http://www.wix.com/anothersundaymorning/another-sunday-morning/page-1

 

She seems like a creative woman with lots of ideas. Why she didn't stick to one and do it well is a mystery to me.  I wonder where her friend Lo fits into all this....and why did she bring her daughter into it as well? She posted her pictures on her blog.

 

Finally it still hasn't been confirmed that ENSO and MOPTOP MAVEN aka NIKOLE CROWE are related, but their individual reactions to this speaks volumes.

ENSO claims they were hacked (compromised), in that case shouldn't they have informed their customers? Why go after the people that spotted the issue and not the hacker?

 

And the people at naturally curly who did all the work and contains A LOT more info:http://www.naturallycurly.com/curltalk/4a/131157-moptop-maven-behind-enso-naturals.html

 

SUMMARIE:

People over that NC discover a link between alleged scammer Nikole/Moptop Maven and Enso naturals. Instead of addressing the rumours in a professional manner both sides start misbehaving in the face of more and more proof mounting up against them.

She's got a lot of good ideas though. Is this enso company new or old? She probably started it with the money that people paid for the products they never received.

Do you think she's lying about the new baby?

I saw the deleted thread @ LHCF and still existing @ Naturallycurly (the post were the palms of Nikole's hands are comared is pricelessShocked).
I'm disappointed in that woman. That tells you that scammers don't have a particular face. Her pretty face, gorgeous hair (her haircare tips  were awesome) and beautiful clothes are what made people fall for her lies.
She needs to be reported and arrested (this is her second grand scam, Enso will be the third). Like seriously. She's dangerous, a professional thief. That pic tells it the way it is:

Mop Top Maven is a blogger who scammed people out of money. She started selling jewellery from her blog then suddenly stopped posting orders. Then her blog went silent for some time. People were wondering what was going on - some were concerned they hadn't received their orders. Moptop eventually posts a blog and says she is sick and has got Wilson's Disease, so she is going to be recuperating, but her mother will handle refunds and fulfilling orders that have been placed and so on. From what I gather they were given tracking numbers that didn't pan out. People waited and waited till the time they could get their money back from paypal passed.

Moptop vanished for months...people constantly left messages on FB praying for her and wishing her well and when people mentioned being scammed they were shut down by stans.

Recently a new natural hair care company (ENSO Naturals) emerged on sites like Naturally Curly and LHCF. Someone noticed that the name on an email from them was the same as Moptop's name - Nikole Crowe. It is such a rare name/spelling the person felt compelled to ask if they are linked. They were first ignored and then rather than give a straight answer they sent out a badly written cease and desist letter to the blogger that pointed it out. 

So, that is pretty much where we are now, people have dug up all sorts of links between the two companies.

If she lied about her being sick on the verge of death literally, she must be lying about the new baby. That thread @ NaturallyCurly really shows how a fat liar she is.
Karma is a b itch Nikole!
