I was randomly browsing a Hungarian site, when I found the story of a local noname illusionist, who challenged a very famous escape guy, David Merlini, just to get some publicity for himself, and estabilish in the industry.
The funny part of it, is that the challenger strated to publish portraits of himself wearing a high security restraint, to underscore his ability.
Now, it came out that the guy was using the picture of another artist, just retouching the face, and putting his own.

We always have to take care what we upload on our personal webpage, otherwise there is chance that people like this Saman would use it for their own purposes.
P.S. I think that's the same guy who posted the Intruder box effect (cloning Steinmeyer's method).
