ATTENTION!!! "The Sweetest Box"!!!!

Hello to all of our faithful readers. It has recently been brought to our attention that another new sample box website has popped up, containing word-for-word copyrighted text from our Sweet Delight Divalicious Sample Boxes website. This is just unbelievable!!!

We usually try not to "call out" businesses for any reason, however we feel that this time we must warn our readers and customers about this deceptive website. It is called The Sweetest Box (hmmm...wonder why they would choose that name?) and they are claiming to be the owners/authors of OUR blog, Delightful Divas In Business and are even linking to it on their FAQ's page!!!

Can you believe this?! Check out this screenshot where we have caught them in the act!...(click on the image to enlarge - and please notice the words that are circled)

They have copied almost all of the text from our "How To Participate" page and have pasted it onto their own FAQ's page. ( CLICK HERE - to see their Faq's page)

Please notice how they are calling themselves the "sweetest" box and have even left the word "divalicious" in their faq's page (amid all of the other copyrighted text from our site). But the most absurd part is that they are trying to tell others not to steal content from their website by claiming that it is copyrighted. Strange.

Our website content is protected by Canadian and International Copyright Laws. We would prefer not to take legal action against The Sweetest Box website, however stealing website content is a crime and we will stop at nothing to make sure that they remove our copyrighted material from their pages. We have been advised to contact them via email before taking further action and that is exactly what we intend to do right now.

In the meantime, please spread the word about The Sweetest Box and warn your friends that it is in no way connected to this Delightful Divas In Business blog or to the Sweet Delight Divalicious Sample Boxes website.

Well...you must have done something right. When I tried to go to their site it gave me the Ooops!! page. Guess they got the point ;-)

I can believe it. I write 3-4 articles for my business so I set up a Google alert with the title of the articles and discovered that 2 of my articles were scraped! No credit to me at all! They posted the article like it were theirs. People are really triflin.

Well, apparently your problem is gone. That Sweetest Box site is gone!

Sorry to read about your stolen articles, Michelle. That is just terrible!

They should have at least asked permission before "helping themselves"....and should definitely have given full credit to you (with a link back to your site).

Have you tried contacting the person/people who did this?
