The Wendy B. Conundrum

I guess I have had enough of this Wendy B. character and as a result I have to put in my 2 cents worth here. She made several claims to another member of this forum that she had lunch with a sponsored by Pentax photographer in Paris. I would love to know who the person she had lunch with in Paris was. Now, as I was the only Officially Sponsored Photographer with Pentax France at the time, I cannot imagine who else it could have been. I most certainly have never met Wendy and furthermore, if she is suggesting that I lunched with her, I must conclude that she is a mythomaniac.

As a result of what you have quoted and because I am no longer sponsored by Pentax, please find enclosed a letter sent to me by Wendy B. with some rather menacing overtones:

I received this July 11, 2008...

Why I get away with it.
For 30+ years of a very close relationship, that is why I get away with it. I am not spilling the beans just setting the stage with well thought out permissions. If this PM enters the forum or goes elsewhere your relationship with Pentax will halt permanently. If you need verification of this just ask Mogendorff or Anja, enough said.

My maiden name is Suzuki, more than enough said.


I will be photographing in the Tuillerie Gardens from August 6th to the 14th. If you would like to discuss this further. Just be discrete.

Wendy

Here is one more message I received from her just after the above:

"Did it ever occur to you, that I know your relationship did not end."

I don't know if fraud is the right word, but it certainly is very weird....

WendyB is just another lamer/hack trying to be someone 'it's' not.
