Just putting this out there.

I have noticed there are some social media accounts using my name, alleged associations, and a website or two that people may believe to be me.

I posted some time ago about winding back on Social Media [ I’m no longer active on it ] and the only active website I use is this one. My other domains are, which points to this domain and, that has a holding page set up – I’m still deciding whether to use it or not, and I obviously still own because a day might come where I want to get back into commercial Aerial Photography, or I may just post material from a hobbyist perspective.

Last year, I opted to get rid of my domain names, along with my ABN, for privacy reasons.

My Only Registered Social Media Accounts are; / @RobertCrainWP / @TakenByDroneAU @RobertCrain @TakenByDrone @RobertCrain @TakenByDrone / @RobertCrain

I do not post on these accounts, and whether or not I ever use them again, remains to be seen. I might use the TakenByDrone Account one day, I just don’t know.

If you come across any websites / social media accounts purporting to be me, please just ignore them.

When dealing with me, with regards to WordPress, emails will come from this domain – nowhere else.


Not WordPress Related.

Several months ago, I attempted to contact this business, and find out who the ‘Robert Clifford Crain’ was behind the ‘Mums Cafe and Restaurant’ Business. To no avail.

I contacted NSW Police, as I believe that someone may have stolen my identity, who in return recommended I contact the Australian Taxation Office.

The Australian Taxation Office, in their wisdom, asked if I had proof that somebody had in fact stolen my identity, and is committing a crime. Obviously I don’t have proof, but what I do know is;

  1. My name is Robert Clifford Crain.
  2. In 2010, I registered a business name, Mums Cafe and Restaurant.
  3. I never renewed the business name, although for some reason it was renewed. It was finally cancelled in 2018.
  4. There is NO business registered now by that name.
  5. The odds of ANOTHER Robert Clifford Crain existing in New South Wales, let alone one that just happens to use the business name of Mums Cafe and Restaurant, dare I say, are all but 0%.

At what point does ANY Australian Government department or office, take these things seriously. I was basically told that if I had proof that somebody was breaking the law, I should provide it, otherwise, there’s nothing they could do.

What could be done at a Police or ATO level, is look at Government records to find out if there is in fact ‘another’ Robert Clifford Crain. Something so simple, made difficult by bureaucracy and a Public Service, that just does not care.

So, for the record – This is NOT me.
