Let us examine this rather smart attempt at fake DMCA –


Anthony R Ianniello


A legitimate looking DMCA claim, stating that the original content was published on . We suppose it’s plausible. But then we read through the article and find out that the copyright belonged to Albany Times Union, a News Agency which has nothing to do with this website.

This is the copyright disclaimer on the article itself –

So we decided to email Brendan and check for ourselves. And to no one’s surprise, he has no idea about this DMCA notice, and confirmed that it is fake.

The fact that someone impersonated Albany Times Union, set up a website and filed a fake DMCA is a serious crime in itself.

And this was not the only fake DMCA they filed. Here’s another one –

Same modus-operandi –

This, posted on Ripoff Report –

If you Google “Expose Corrupt Courts” you can read about attorney Anthony R. Ianniello. The article written by Brendan Lyons of the Albany Times Union newspaper explains Anthony Ianniello’s involvement as one of the attorney’s involved in a multi million dollar scam perpetrated by a series of people in in the capital region. Ianniello used his attorney’s escrow account to to take in money that was generated from the scheme.  He than used that money to purchase a house, a Porsche and other assets for his client that was later sentenced to federal prison.  After reading the article, it begs the question; why didn’t Ianniello get charged with money laundering?  One theory is that Ianniello cooperated with the fed’s on a very large level.  It has been said that he turned in his then wife, Mary Fox Ianniello, for her involvement in a mortgage scheme as part of his deal with the fed’s to win his way out of an indictment.  Brendan Lyons’s article clearly shows that Ianniello testified against his own client, and it is assumed that he provided information to the fed’s regarding the other players in the scheme as well. 

While most of the players in this wild display of greed went to prison, Ianniello walked away free as a little bird. He’s law office continues to represent banks at real estate closings. The question is, why would a lending institution want to do business with a character like Ianniello?  Would you trust your personal information with him?

In case you are one of the ‘beneficiaries’  listed in this report and are wondering what really happened, we suggest you look within. If it wasn’t you, or your associates, it is definitely the ‘Reputation’ or ‘SEO’ firm you have hired in the past. Perhaps even your law firm. So, instead of blaming us for this article, you must grill your Reputation/SEO firm and look for answers. We are merely publishing the facts available on public database and have nothing against you personally. It is more than likely that the service you hired indulged in criminal methods to deliver results for you.

Meanwhile, we are awaiting more information from Ripoffreport and Google to ascertain who was behind this fake DMCA. We’ll update this page once we have more information. If you have any information to add to this investigation, get in touch with us at [email protected]

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 ,, 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.
