Davin sends the following email to Yuliana Avalos (at the time she was going as Julie Love)
Hi Julie, Somebody is attempting to scam me using your images. I am sure you have heard this a thousand times. Anyway, what the scammer does not know is it is I who is scamming them. Consider it vigilante justice. I and my cohorts have done this before so we know what we are doing. Anyway, I saw the piece on 20/20 that featured you and it got me thinking. You have never been able to retaliate in any way. Would you like to help us scam this scammer as a small measure of revenge for you and those who have been hurt by the illegal use of your image? If yes then when we talk I will tell you more. If not that is fine too. Best, Davin

Davin Sends another email to Yuliana Avalos.
Hi Julie, I emailed you yesterday about scammers using your pictures and how I am fighting back. You did not respond. I know you get a lot of those emails. Usually from some guy who was fooled by these creeps. Anyway, they are sending me pictures of your kid that are not on most sites that I know if. There are pictures of your son and other children at a firehouse in what I believe to be Florida. The children are wearing green pineapple cove shirts. They also sent me pictures of you in the water with a group of children. None of those children was your son. I am 100% legitimate. I was hoping you would help me teach at least one of these scammers a lesson. Especially now that they are using kids to help create their stories. Sincerely, Davin

Davin’s Den discusses an interview featuring Yuliana Avalos on ABC’s 20/20 which originally aired on June 24, 2011. The interview was in regards to a man who killed himself in 2010 after falling in love with a scammer who was using Avalos’ picture. The Den thinks something is not right after watching the interview and wants 20/20 to take another look at this matter.
