ANALYZING THE FAKE DMCA
This one’s pretty simple – A fake News Portal set up, so obviously fake that they used a free website at Blogspot.com. This is what the DMCA notice states –
The official News Portal for Times Now is – http://timesnownews.com . They have nothing to do with this free blog set up at http://timesnowworldnews.blogspot.co.uk . They have planted a series of content dating back to 1995. Of course Blogspot did not exist back then –
SO WHAT WERE THEY TRYING TO HIDE ?
Ohh, the price of being associated with someone who is being investigated for Fraud and made the national headlines. As the story goes, Brothers Arif, Munaf and Faisal Patel are the Britain’s most wanted fugitives – https://www.lancashire.police.uk/wanted.aspx . And Anil Hindocha is their best buddy as it seems with the excerpt here from https://www.lep.co.uk/news/distressed-patels-sue-police-for-163-300-000-1-91462 –
Brothers Arif, Munaf and Faisal Patel have joined forces with five other members of their family, accountants Hindocha and Co and the family’s Faisaltex business to claim damages of more than 300,000 from Lancashire Police and HM Revenue and Customs.
Anil Hindocha, a chartered accountant who runs the Deepdale-based firm, has also made a claim saying adverse publicity about the raids had caused concern to his clients and lost its agency with the Yorkshire Building Society, which it had held for 23 years.
EDITOR’S COMMENT : For those who might ask – ‘why and how do we interject that ‘Anil Hindocha’ has something to do with this fake DMCA. Couldn’t it be a coincidence ?’, we will say this – When someone goes and creates a whole new fake news site, falsifies his/her identity and submits fake DMCA to try and de-list some very targeted content on Google, it signals intent and a plan. It is obvious that ‘Anil Hindocha’ or someone they hired was directly involved in this crime. Anil Hindocha also cannot plead ignorance in this matter, since this notice on Google search is hard to miss, really.
