We have done similar fake DMCA investigation in the past. This method was quite popular among rogue Reputation firms between 2014-16. We detected around 1200 legitimate URLs removed using this method, and have till date managed to reinstate EACH AND EVERY link back on Google Search.

So let us analyze this fake DMCA and explain the modus operandi –

Here is what the notice claimed –

Carlin Buchsbaum LLP


The DMCA listed dozens of random URLs which allegedly infringed upon’s copyright. Quite a neat trick, impersonate a credible publisher, claim copyright against dozens of random links and slip in the 1 target link in between.

The idea, the hope is that Google staff will not investigate each link and let the target link slip by and be removed from the search index. was contacted and they confirmed that they have nothing to do with this fake DMCA. is yet to respond. Meanwhile they have taken down the link used in the fake DMCA.


It is the same old story. A firm has a negative review at Ripoff Report. It ranks high on Google and hurts their reputation as well as business.

Here is an excerpt from that post –


Carlin & Buchsbaum, are employment laywers and are suppose to be in the business of representing clients who are victims to wrongful termination, and unlawful employment issues.

I worked for Carlin & Buchsbaum for approximately 5 weeks and was wrongfully termination by them without cause, without notice and without any warning. It wasn’t enough that they wrongfully terminated my employment, but Gary Carlin filed a fraudulent claim with the State of California’s EDD Department of Unemployment and made false reports, untrue statements for the sole purpose of blocking my unemployment compensation.

Mr. Carlin also did not know the laws concerning the EDD Department’s practice of employee reporting, because while employed, they sent him a notice regarding a claim that I made prior to being employed and he accused me of trying to claim unemployment while working with his firm. The EDD explained to me that it was their normal procedure to send a notice to the NEW employer to receive their verification that you are in fact employed by them, and based on their confirmation, they will close the claim. Mr. Carlin did not now the laws concerning EDD and they are employment lawyers.


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.

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.
