MANNFORD, Oklahoma -

A Mannford woman said she logged on to social media to see someone impersonating her. She said the user didn't use her face or her name, but pictures of her son, pretending the baby was her own.

There isn't much you can do to stop someone from pulling your pictures off the Internet, but what about if and when that does happen? What can you do to protect yourself?

Kayla Rogers is a proud and protective new mom, which is why she got creeped out when she saw pictures of her and her baby on an online dating profile.

"It just gave me a sick, sick feeling," she said. "Wow, like all these weirdos on that profile know what my son looks like."

A woman that Rogers said she knew as a man from her hometown of Tahlequah added Rogers' pictures to her account on Plenty Of Fish.

Rogers said the woman was pretending the baby belonged to her.

"She had a bio saying her son's name was Traygen and you'll never meet him," Rogers said.

According to Rogers, the woman never used a picture of her face, only her body.

At the time the two were friends on Facebook, meaning they had access to each other's pictures.

Rogers said when she saw the woman's profile she confronted her and the woman took the pictures down.

Rogers is still upset and warning other moms.

"Keep your stuff on private and watch your friends list," she said.

A cybercrimes sergeant with the Tulsa Police Department said none of that is illegal in Oklahoma.

In order for it to be a crime, the impersonator would have to use your name, picture and benefit financially from that usage.

To protect your pictures, police recommend making your profile picture something that isn't your face.

They also recommend making your social media accounts private and not blindly accepting friend requests.
