Carolyn Capalbo Is A REALTOR In Northern Virginia That Needs Your Help

Carolyn CapalboCarolyn Capalbo is a real estate agent in Northern Virgina that is being punished for having the wrong name. In 2008 a women with the same name as Carolyn Capalbo broke into the news, and it wasn't pretty. The "other" Carolyn had a daughter that was involved with a New York governor in a promiscuous way. Long story short, it was ugly, and now when you google Carolyn Capalbo, you get the results of the other women. 

You can read the full story here.

Here's the deal. Because of this other women, Carolyn's business has suffered, and I thought we could help her get her name back. Clients of her's have Googled her name and found this other women intruding on her brand with scandolous news blogs and have mistaken her for Carolyn Capalbo the REALTOR. 

Before you help Carolyn Capalbo You Should Know Her Story

 

Carolyn is a military spouse, she has family that has served this country, and I think we can serve her family with the help we can provide with this post. Carolyn has a degree in economics and is continuously a top agent in residential sales in Northern, Virginia. Carolyn is a respectable business women that goes above and beyond for her clients.

She continues to be a top producing agent in Northern, Virigina and, by no fault of her own, has had to deal with national news outlets calling her personal phone, business acquaintances, her daughters school and even her brokerage looking for the "juicy" story. 

Imagine, while at work with clients, ABC News, CBS News, The Washington Post, and The New York Times calling your workplace to get the scoop on a scandal that you were never apart of. Imagine these reporters asking promiscuous questions from your co-workers and people you do business with everyday. What would it be like for your little girl having to answer questions about some women in the news asked by your own teacher. 

This is the nightmare that Carolyn Capalbo is having to deal with and this is where you come in. Let's help Carolyn take her name back from a scandal that has nothing to do with her. 

How do we help Carolyn? Simple. Use your knowledge that you've learned from blogging here on Activerain to push her name above the fold in the search engine results pages.

So, Activerainers, I ask you to help Carolyn Capalbo get her name back. All you have to do is RE-Blog this post or link to this post with her name as the anchor text.

I think it is vital that she takes Mr. Gassett's advice.

I read this on Lori's reblog and then I rebloged the original myself, Lisa. I have to go back and add the links, though. I am all too aware of the damage that can happen from a case of mistaken identity.

Two years ago, my wife received a series of harrassing phone calls, the meat of which was that she was "married to a child molester, and we're trying to get you out of our neighborhood". What???? My wife totally flipped over it - she knew better, but didn't know what to do about it, other than report it to the police.

Me? I did my homework. Other William James Walton, 58 years old (at the time), lived in Manchester, CT....I even pulled up a picture, wrote an informational flyer about the situation and warned whoever was making the phone calls that when they were caught, I was going to throw the book at them - jail time, fines, damages for emotional distress, etc. The phone calls stopped, and I haven't had that problem since.

Jason - Carolyn has signed up on AR and is working on her blog. It should do wonders for her if she keeps at it!

William - Ouch! That is just terrible, but it looks like you handled it well. If something like that comes up, the best thing you can do is act quickly. I can't imagine what that situation would be like if it went unchecked! Yikes!!!

Just googled her name and it seems to be working Lisa.  Of course I think we should keep this up.  And how ironic that via reblog I found this today and over the weekend had just thought about how my name ranking really really well at google had hurt two other professionals with the same name.  Not hurt in the same sense at this mess of course, but Tammy Lankford the insurance agent... and Tammy Lankford the author of children's books... have but one place each on the first page of google while I have the other 9.

I just wrote a post yesterday about Identity Theft.  But, that was basically financial.  This is an animal of a different stripe altogether.  And very strange.  I'll reblog it later....so many now are just cluttering up the roll and she'll need more help later if another article about the other woman emerges.

Carolyn is not alone with her problem. I've known  a lot people with the same name and end up adding their middle name to make the difference. As long as her conscience is clear and accept the reality that duplication of first and last name possibly do happen.

I read with amazement this story and coud not believe what I was reading for a while. But it is sad and true. I hope to God that this will get resolved soon. May Carolyn Capalbo, the realtor win this battle.

God bless
