ANALYZING THE FAKE DMCA
** Investigation in progress **
Yes, that’s right. Our team and friends are currently investigating this fake DMCA incident and analyzing all the public data we have with us. Right now we have the evidence captured and archived, we are still waiting for a response from AE Watches, Google and other related parties involved in this fake DMCA. This could take up to a couple of weeks.
However, make no mistake. This is indeed a case of copyright take-down fraud purported in order to hide online content. Once we compile all the facts of this case with due diligence, the final report will be published here.
We fight for the truth. If you have anything to contribute to this report or want to provide critical information against AE Watches, you can get in touch with us at [email protected] We’re open for dialogue, unless your intention is to threaten us and waste your time.
SO WHAT WERE THEY TRYING TO HIDE ?
In particular, a negative review/story against AE Watches which potentially hurt business and reputation. Here is an excerpt from that ripoff report –
Please be careful of this tricky Internet dealer in San Fransisco, I have recenlty bought a rolex explorer II with original papers and box from this fraud Internet dealer. The name of this fraudulent dealer is called “A&E Watches” The fact is that I sent them the money through bank wire transfer, I paid $7200 for the watch plus additonal $48 for the UPS shipping cost with 100% insurance.
After they received the money, they pretended to send me the watch with all accessories via UPS with insurance. Unfortunately, when I received the watch, I found the watch was missing in the box but only received the box, all the accessories and the papers. Moreover, I found the paper is NOT the proper paper, on which I could not find the serial number punched or written on it.
It only has the model number 16550 written on it. Obviously, this is only a replacement added paper but not original one. So, I contacted the seller immediately for the missing watch. Initially, we presumed the watch was lost during the postage because the seller declared that he has sent me the watch. Then, I approached UPS immediately about the lost of the watch.
After checking with UPS, I found that the seller “A&E Watches” in fact had NOT insured with UPS of the watch because UPS will not insure the watch for the value of $7200… However, when I asked the seller about the insurance claim, he told me he is applying the insurance with UPS and is awaiting for the claims from UPS.
Obviously, this was a fraud because I have checked with UPS and they ensured that this shipment has never been insured in any case. They also told me that A&E Watches had a history of complaints with them for this type of attempted fraud and was on a special watch list with UPS.
Finally, after a series of my warnings, this fraud seller still refused to give me back the $7200 saying that I must have stolen the watch and claimed it wasn’t in the box. This lying seller repeated and repeated to lie on me, and to now, I still have not received my money back.
Hereby, I remind all the Internet watch fans : Do not deal with this Fraud dealer. If you have any friends are dealing with them, please remind them to STOP!!!

WHAT IS A FAKE DMCA AND WHY ARE WE LISTED HERE ?
Soon after we published the first set of our investigation reports on fake DMCAs, we managed to generate interest from online media such as Techdirt, Adweek and Huffington Post. Some of the key stories included our revelations on Roosh V, Idea Buyer, Qnet , Tai Lopez ,Amira Nature Food, Grant Cardone and more. We also shared unpublished data and information with 3 different law agencies who looked into this scam.
And we got results. We dented this fake DMCA industry and made sure we act as deterrent to the rogue reputation firms indulged in these criminal practices. Here are some of the outcomes and changes we made possible with the help of several other citizen lawyers and agencies –

Fake Fraudulent DMCA might seem inconspicuous, until it’s you at the receiving end of this crime. This is not a prank. This is not an inconvenience. This is not random. These fake DMCA cases are calculated criminal schemes targeting very specific and rather important information/content. These hitjobs are usually against media, in order to help their client hide important information from public’s eye, all in the name of Reputation Management. Millions of dollars are spent doing this, and if no one wants to bring this topic to the fore, we will.
Our team will not constantly monitor and publish these reports on a DAILY basis without fail. And we do not plan to publish and forget. We will take constructive steps in order to expose the faces behind this scam, and to try and undo the damages. AND IF YOU INDEED PART OF THIS SCAM, WE WILL ENSURE THAT YOU GET WHAT’S COMING YOUR WAY.
