Who is the “Kitty” of “Kitty’s Consumer Beware”?

Note: Cathey Annette Baker, owner of a hair removal forum called Kitty’s Consumer Beware, died in 2009, and the forum went down soon after. I was a prominent critic of the forum for their promotion of doubtful hair removal products and services. The information below is an archive.

What’s in a name?

Consumers have written to me suggesting that “Katherine Cook” and the nickname “Kitty” are assumed names being used by GHR salespeople on “Kitty’s Consumer Beware.” Given Judith Stephens’ use of assumed names, this suggestion is worth examining.

Names associated with both GHR and “Kitty’s Consumer Beware” include:

“Katherine Cook”
Cathey Baker
Judith Stephens

Are they three different people? Are they two different people? Are they all the same person? Let’s take a look…
