Of all the Getty Clones, to date, there has been nothing more outrageous than what has been brought to my and Oscar Michelen’s attention than the questionable practices and threats of George P. Riddick III of Imageline Inc. based in Ashland, Virginia.
Mr. Riddick has single-handedly and outrageously trumped the actions of Getty Images, Masterfile, and Jupiter Images combined! The utter lack of professionalism and distorted views from Mr. Riddick was so disturbing that I felt I needed to report and assist in this situation.
Unlike Getty Images, MasterFile, and Jupiter Images, ImageLine appears to be primarily a one-man operation. In fact, in all correspondence that has been forwarded to us, Mr. Riddick routinely initiates, responds, and follows up on all email correspondence. He signs many of his communication as Chairman/CEO.
Most recently, Riddick has been caught impersonating a respected attorney and law firm by sending correspondence in their name. This was confirmed and verified by a reliable source who followed up on the alleged letters from the law firm.
Now, Riddick and Imageline faces a lawsuit filed by Bernina of America. You can read more about this in the article within the bright yellow box below.
A woman named Teri S. seems to be working in concert with Mr. Riddick and ImageLine Inc.
Mr. Riddick has amassed a bit of “badwill” on himself and his company. I personally find his credibility a bit questionable the more research I do on him.
