Donson Brooks


The DMCA notice further claims (as quoted) –

I am Adam Trent, assistant project manager and underwriter. I posted a content on on Feb 6, 2013 unfolding the fraud Donson Brooks did with his clients. Terms like Salomon Grey Financial with Kyle Rowe, Paul Koupas were used in my content. The content was copied and used on other websites without my permission. I contacted the webmaster team and most of them have removed the content, but Ripoff report didn’t removed the content. I request you to de-index the link from Google searches.

So, it is claimed that the article on was published on or before the article was published on ( . The RipoffReport content was published on February 03, 2012.


However, after checking the sitemap.xml file , we can clearly see that the (planted) article was published on 28th March, 2017. A day before the (fake) DMCA was filed by the perpetrators.

Very shoddy piece of work by a reputation firm. Unfortunate for the ‘client’, he’s the one facing the brunt of this investigation.


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.

This is what the complaint says –

Watch out for this guy! He will take your money and do absolutley the opposite of what he states he will do. He takes money from companies stating he will provide marketing and market awareness. He preys on public companies that have no liquid markets. He takes the money YOU pay him and he buys YOUR stock in YOUR company and states he created a market. Now thats funny! Then, to keep you on the hook so you wont sue him, he claims he has a group of brokers he has who will buy stock and create a public market but he wants you to pay him a large cash percentage of what he buys. He pays his group of guys cash under the table to bribe them to buy the stock. Highly illegal!! This guy works from his house and is a total scam artist. He breaks every securities laws ever written. He was a former owner of Salomon Grey Financial with Kyle Rowe and Paul Koupas. Check those crooks out on google! If you want to keep your company out of regulatory problems then keep a very safe distance from this guy!

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.
