Jambolb2

And

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=639399
Jimbola3

Should I be concerned about this? Both of them seem to be just spamming a lot on the forum and the sequential account numbers highly suggest it's the same person.
But why on earth did they copy my name

EDIT:
Proof that I own this account since someone accused me of not being the original owner of this account.

Doubt they've actively copied your name; it's just similar. They almost certainly belong to the same person though as they were registered on the same date within five minutes of each other.

November 8th 2015 seems like quite a busy day in the Jim/Jam world, it's the date the two accounts you mention were created and also the date that your current account became inactive for three months.

The likely scenario is that whoever you bought this account from decided that he liked the basic name and created two more accounts to farm.
But now you're probably going to start arguing that your present account wasn't bought etc. etc. and I can't be assed to.

Maybe I'd agree with that if only jimbola3 was there.

But jambolb2? People rarely append numbers to the end of their names unless the previous name is taken, and I don't think jambolb is taken.
My exact same username with just a single letter incremented seems waaay too suspicious to be a coincidence.

And then the fact that the second account jimbola3 is also pretty close scares me further...

What I find the most interesting is that they are Sr. Members so they must have been around for a while. You could review what businesses you were into when they joined and maybe you find the reason, but I have my doubts about whether it is still relevant. You could simply state in your sales threads not to confuse you with them.

I tagged jimbola3 but I can't recall if that account was being sold or what.  The reference thread is the one where rizz listed a whole bunch of farmed accounts.   Definitely shady.

Okay I've been trying to find that address and I've failed. I can't find it in any of my wallets.
I presume I added it to some online wallet service and forgot it or something.

I have access to my coinchat account of the same name for proof (I've mentioned coinchat a lot in my first bitcointalk posts), or I have a steam account I mentioned in a early post, or I also have another Bitcoin address I mentioned as early as Nov 2013. (also, you can check those posts to see that no edit marker has been added).

I tagged jimbola3 but I can't recall if that account was being sold or what.  The reference thread is the one where rizz listed a whole bunch of farmed accounts.   Definitely shady.

Actually, both jimbola3 and jambolb2 were mentioned as farmed accounts and they had a common bitcoin address between them and two other accounts.
