digital print documenting an online web project
Identity theft occurs all the time. People's credit cards/bank account info gets stolen through the internet as web scams or malware directly from one's computer. Other times people impersonate celebrities on social networks. Is this also part of identity theft or a form of flattery for the celebrity?

Below is a high-res PDF of the entire print and includes the most interesting responses to fake Danny's posts.
