Stop ONE UNITED BANK’s IDENTITY Theft

One United Bank claims to be the largest Black Bank in the nation yet has stolen the face and identity of a Black Woman and made her the face of their #BankBlack trademarked marketing campaign.

STOP #BankBlack Scams

No MONEY DONATIONS... this is bigger than that, please just sign.

Wanda Darden, professionally known as Phantom KNOET, has been charged over $100,000 dollars since 2017 by attorneys to stop OneUnited Bank from using her FACE, Image, likeness and characterization.

THIS IS A VIOLATION OF CIVIL RIGHTS  Statutes 50 & 51 

Darden has never given permission orally or written for use of her face, image, likeness or characterization for any advertising or commercial purposes.  One United Bank received Darden’s imagery, work, history, and social media account information from a former friend of Darden’s that became employed by the bank. 

Upon discovering One United Bank illegally using her image, likeness, picture, and characterization in an online promotion and on mousepads, Darden diligently sought through supplication and litigation to force One United Bank to Cease and Desist from infringing on her Human Rights and Civil Rights. 

DARDEN served Facebook a DCMA notice and some of One United Bank’s ads were removed; however, the inconsistent protections of Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter has allowed the continued infringements of One United Bank despite acknowledgement by Facebook of the infringements and their promise to end the abuse. 

One United Bank continues intentionally inflicting economic and emotional harm to Darden’s psyche, family, friends, and business associates. This abuse must end.

 

Please do not donate money. 

In 2016, Darden advised One United Bank that they were illegally exploiting her and she wanted the abuse to end. Instead of ending the use, One United Bank increased usage by placing her image on

  • Debit, Credit, and Atm cards
  • Funeral home fans
  • Mousepads
  • Notebooks
  • Phone cases
  • Stickers
  • Tee-Shirts
  • Banners
  • Billboards in Time Square
  • Email banners
  • Digital Marketing Packages
  • Webpages
  • Social Media Accounts
    And More

SIGN THIS PETITION TO END EXPLOITATION.

Adding insult to injury, One United Bank created a campaign called “Unapologetic” while claiming in Brooklyn Supreme Court that Darden was an avatar, caricature, or algorithm of features. In addition, they distributed over 20,000 bank cards (financial instruments of exchange) bearing Darden’s biometric data, abhorrently placing a chip on her eye and the words “Good Through” on her lips. In bad faith and with malice, One United Bank has infringed on the Rights of an American citizen who has dedicated her life to servicing her global community, promoting self-sufficiency, and advancing upward economic mobility in depraved communities. 

 


In an effort to persuade One United Bank to disassociate Darden’s face from their advertising and marketing campaigns, a movement #STANDWITHHER was started where supporters across the globe used social media and word-of-mouth to alert unsuspecting consumers of the false advertisements and misappropriated uses of Wanda Darden/ Phantom KNOET as the face of One United Bank’s #BankBlack marketing campaign. Supporters and activists wrote letters of support and contacted local law enforcement and civil rights agencies advocating on Darden’s behalf. Customers closed their accounts in alliance and others vowed not to open accounts and to advise others to destroy their cards and infringing paraphernalia.

 

This is EMPOWERMENT.  Sign in Support.

This support has aided Darden in continuing her fight to stop the exploitation of One United Bank through litigation in King’s County Brooklyn Supreme Court. 

 

 

 

Please sign this petition to show that you support WANDA DARDEN’s fight asserting her rights as a human being to NOT BE USED FOR ADVERTISING AND COMMERCIAL PURPOSES without her written or expressed permission.

Wanda Darden has not historically endorsed financial institutions nor allowed her goodwill and image and likeness and characterization to be exploited.  For Darden, this has been a living hell.

 

Please visit @PHANTOMKNOET on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter for more in-depth information on Darden’s legal journey through the US Court System fighting for her Civil Rights to Privacy and Publicity and to own her own property. 

 


Please sign, share, and engage others if you believe that companies MUST GET YOUR PERMISSION before using your face for advertising and marketing purposes.

 

Please sign this petition if you believe that skin color does not affect the rights of a human being.

Send One United Bank the message that

BLACK EXPLOITATION ENDS NOW!

 

 

 

Stop BANKING ON BLACK FACES!

 

In this digital age, it is imperative that we do not lose sight of our humanity. As companies create robots and androids with human features and “skin like” textures, we must ensure that HUMANS are afforded their right to owning their own faces and representation in the world. It is said that the eyes are the window to the soul. One United Bank has sought to claim ownership of “Wanda’s Eyes” by presenting in the marketplace and on the World Wide Web registrations with the US Copyright Office for a picture of Wanda Darden registered without Darden’s knowledge in 2018. WANDA Darden has never given permission for any person or business to copyright her name and eyes and she finds this akin to slavery and denounces it as evil and corrupt. 

 

Names and Eyes Are NOT COPYRIGHTABLE!

Nuances in the law state that in order for Darden to get an injunction, there must be a show of community support in petition or other manners to preserve the rights of one citizen.

Do not donate money through this petition as it does not go towards the litigation expenses Darden faces against her own face. 

Today, it is Darden.... tomorrow it could be your grandchild. Protect your face today by choosing to #STANDWITHHER

As I fight for my civil rights, it is imperative to let the decision makers know that I do not stand alone and this is a right that we all choose to assert. Please let our voices unite. This is a good cause. This is a worthy cause. We must not allow injustices due to gender, skin color, or celebrity status.
