ANALYZING THE FAKE DMCA
http://seiworld.com is a poor attempt at setting up a fake news website. Absolutely horrible. The least we expected was to find a decent looking website which could actually look legit at the first glance. It’s an eyesore, and we couldn’t look at it for more than 10 seconds at a stretch.
Now imagine how incompetent Google’s DMCA support team would be, to actually believe that this is a legitimate website, and actually removed a link from www.ripoffreport.com ?
Searching for ‘site:seiworld.com‘ on Google delivers only 137 results. The first of many red flags. Not to mention that the logo is shamelessly copied from …. yes, Sea World – https://seaworldparks.com/en/seaworld-sandiego/
It is also hardly surprising that there are ‘No results found for “Seiworld News Corp” on Google. How did Google staff miss this ??
The website is hosted on IP 220.127.116.11 (shared hosting), provided by Resellerclub. We are in touch with them to know more about the people behind this website.
Let’s analyze the article in question, on the website which claims to be the actual source –
- The fake website claimed that the complaint was published on their site on Oct 5 2013 . However, the clinching evidence is the fact that this news portal did NOT exist till Jan 2016. Here’s an archive from Dec 2014 – https://web.archive.org/web/20141218101451/http://seiworld.com/ , which shows a blank homepage, with a logo linking to it’s ‘then’ parent website http://seihq.com, who officially owned the domain at that time. Please visit http://www.findusabusiness.com/c/b/iris-brand-enterprises/816690 lists the owners in 2014/15 before the domain was dropped and ‘acquired’ by this criminal group.
- The more we analyzed this website, the more cases of fake DMCAs we uncovered for these potential beneficiaries (which we are investigating now) –
- Daniel J. Scavone – https://www.lumendatabase.org/notices/10908865
- Air Plus Heating Cooling & Solar – (DMCA at Yelp.com)
- No two articles have the same author. Every article seems to be written by a unique author, and they have used very creative names doing so. Needless to say, we contacted all possible persons by these names, and none of them are aware of seiworld.com.
- Brandon Cringley
- Ravish Chander
- Amita Banerjee
- Jullian ford
- Kathleen Alleaume
- Matt Young
- Andres Pachioo
- This website has been a serial violator and has knowingly committed perjury and misrepresented the facts. Have a look below, and imagine how brazen these fly-by-night Reputation firms have become.
SO WHAT WERE THEY TRYING TO HIDE ?
According to the Ripoff Report, it seems Darwin Horan, President and CEO of Nevtana Capital was being accused of running a full-scale fraud in the home building and land development industry. The complaint goes on to say that his was a total scam, selling land and properties that are not available. There is also a question-mark upon his fidelity.
EDITOR’S COMMENT : For those who might ask – ‘why and how do we interject that ‘Mr Darwin Horan’ 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 ‘Darwin Horan’ or someone they hired was directly involved in this crime. Mr. Darwin Horan also cannot plead ignorance in this matter, since this notice on Google search is hard to miss, really.
We are awaiting more information from Resellerclub.com, the hosting provider for this fake news site. 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]
