The Google+ account of Victoria Nigar has attracted a lot of attention lately. She is in over 42,550 circles, and is ranked 545 among top Google+ users in the world, #10 in Canada. Clearly, she has a huge following, but the people who follow her looking at her profile have not the slightest clue."

Well, no one can confirm that she works at Google, and she has changed her name thrice, each time right after the one-month restrain gets over. Moreover, the image on her profile is of someone else! All in violation of Google+ profile TOS. Another thing. Her about page looks kiddish, with Google written in every field. I think, it is just one of those spam accounts that got too much attention.
