ANALYZING THE FAKE DMCA
Let’s examine the fake DMCA –
This DMCA was filed by our old friend, Shrikant Mathur, the guy who has been exposed by Webactivism.com for filing nearly a dozen fake DMCAs dating back to 2013. He used to work for a Reputation Firm called AReputation who fired him immediately upon knowing what he was up to.
So the modus operandi is the same. They set up a fake website at a free hosting platform, plant the target article on it, backdate it to make it look like the original. All that needs to be done thereafter is impersonate someone and file a DMCA notice at Google.
The fake website, http://mycomplaints.16mb.com/2013/04/26/bankers-life-and-casualty-company/ , has now been conveniently deleted.
SO WHAT WERE THEY TRYING TO HIDE ?
A damning review at Ripoff Report, ofcourse. Here’ is what is said, verbatim –
Allan H. Nakata is a verbally and emotionally abusive manager who uses brainwashing to control the agents that work for Bankers Life and Casualty Co. Not sure if the company knows his managing techniques or what he is doing with his agents but his ways are unethical, illegal and downright wrong!
On the onset, Allan H. Nakata will tell you that he is the “Number One Guy in the Insurance Industry in the State of Hawaii” because he ahead all these designations that follow his name. This is bogus becausHeidi you ask any regular person in Hawaii about him, 95-99% of people will say they have never heard of him.
Allan H. Nakata will also tell you he has these awards such as the National Republican Award which has nothing to do with the insurance industry and the way you get that particular award is by donating a bunch of money to the National Republican Committee.

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 Torrence Boone , MoneyLife.in, Julia Scelfo and aReputation. We also shared unpublished data and information with 3 different law agencies who looked into this scam.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 its 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 clients 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.
