ANALYZING THE FAKE DMCA
** Investigation in progress **
Yes, that’s right. Our team and friends are currently investigating this fake DMCA incident and analyzing all the public data we have with us. Right now we have the evidence captured and archived, we are still waiting for a response from DOBA Wholesale Marketer, Google and other related parties involved in this fake DMCA. This could take up to a couple of weeks.
However, make no mistake. This is indeed a case of copyright take-down fraud purported in order to hide online content. Once we compile all the facts of this case with due diligence, the final report will be published here.
We fight for the truth. If you have anything to contribute to this report or want to provide critical information against DOBA Wholesale Marketer, you can get in touch with us at [email protected] We’re open for dialogue, unless your intention is to threaten us and waste your time.
SO WHAT WERE THEY TRYING TO HIDE ?
In particular, a negative review/story against DOBA Wholesale Marketer which potentially hurt business and reputation. Here is an excerpt from that report –
So I’m looking online for a good drop ship company to supplement my current eBay business and find Wholesale Marketer. Their advertisement looks enticing and convincing enough for me to fill out the information to get my free trial. It isn’t long before I get a call from Wholesale Marketer “welcoming me” as a new drop shipper with them, when really I am getting a call from a slick sales rep with his own personal agenda (get me to pay as much money as possible up front so he can make his commission).
Well, needless to say, the sales person was convincing enough about the quality of their service and the money I would save (and I haven’t had a chance to really look at what their drop ship service is like in detail yet) to get me to agree to pay for a year in advance.
Since then, I have spent countless hours looking for ANY product with wholesale pricing that I can drop ship and make some money. Wholesale Marketer’s service is the biggest scam I have ever seen. I don’t know how they can feel good about calling their service a wholesale drop ship service. Not only are the products not Wholesale, most of them sell for above retail and then they tack on extra drop ship fees to pour salt in the wound. I guess I should have seen the writing on the wall when I realized the company was located in Utah.
I hope the Consumer Protection Agency or FTC or some governmental agency steps in and puts these FRAUDS out of business.
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 Sukanto Tanoto, Idea Buyer, Qnet , Tai Lopez ,Amira Nature Food, Beachside Recovery and more. 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 it’s 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 client 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.
