In looking for my perfect unit from AliExpress to alibaba.com I haveen vendors use photos of people that post on bhm and YouTube to sell their units, I often wonder if these people actually know and consent to this and without knowing if they were genuine customers should I post to let them know even though I am not sure or mind my own bidniz?

Its annoying for me because many of the images I see are oif people whose reviews I appreciate and I don't want to be duped by vendors making claims on units they didn't make.

If you know who the person is, I say tell them so they can request that the vendor take the pictures down.  Most of the time, the person doesn't know.  It brings to mind the Youtuber "Muffins Is My Lover", who, after her first YT account was hacked, she opened a new one.  Someone stole all of her reviews/images and put it on a vendor website, basically saying that she approved these wigs.  YT suspended her account for violating some rule and she had to start all over again.

Sometimes people are sneaky with other people's images.

I did not know prior or consent when a vendor used images of my kinky straight bundles on his site (my towel and my table underneath) as a product he was selling, and NO, I did not buy any hair from him.  I sent him an email and asked him to take the photos down.  Honestly, you cannot be sure what you are getting by way of the images, especially on aliexpress; you'll see one stock photo on hundred's of sites.  they are either too cheap or too lazy or don't even have the product to post their own pics. Unfortunately, competition is high and vendors do what they have to do to get your dollars, including image theft.

I see pictures all the time from Yt that I know were sew ins being used to advertise lacewigs. They don't care, only a small few probably have those peoples permission. I see now some vendors are offering a coupon on Aliexpress if you send them a pic of you wearing their product.
