Radio producer laughs for using her photos to create a fake “sugar baby” Instagram page … before revealing it’s FIFTH time this has happened this year
Radio producer Jana Hocking has revealed she was the target of a con artist who stole her photos for use on fake “sugar baby” pages – for the fifth time in a year.
On Tuesday, the 36-year-old, who is also a popular dating columnist, furiously lashed out at an account named “Suga_babyash”, which had grabbed her glamorous selfies and promised her followers they could “have some fun” in the biography of the page.
After asking friends to report the ‘creeping’ account, Jana told Daily Mail Australia this was not the first time this has happened – nor the first platform.

“I dragged people into my DMs to say they had seen my photos on dating apps [Tinder] in Melbourne, and apparently there is someone in Brazil using my photos on a Facebook profile, âshe said.
“I’m kidding hoping the fake me gets some good jokes, but I’m a little worried that people who match ‘her’ are being misdirected.” I don’t want someone to come and see me on the street shouting, because I haven’t come on a date.
The term “sugar baby” refers to the time when an older, wealthier person – or sugar daddy – spends generously on a younger, attractive person, usually in return for companionship.

When asked why she thought her photos were targeted for such a scam, Jana replied, “I don’t know why they are using my photos – there are much hotter girls out there!”
âIt’s pretty easy to report – thank goodness – and I always put them in my Instagram stories, so if anyone encounters them, they can report the fake ones. But these are only the ones sent to me.
âLord knows what’s going on on the Internet. “
Jana revealed that her photos used her photos on Tinder, under the names “Abella” and “Suzy”.

A follower had sent him a message saying: “I think I stumbled upon your picture on Tinder but under a different name … I mean I hope it’s real, but I’m going to take risks and say no .
After confirming that was the case, Jana also took to Instagram to blow up another account pretending to be her, writing, âApparently a cheeky asshole is trying to pretend to be me.
âDon’t hesitate to point it out – or swipe right. They might have better jokes than I do.
