ANALYZING THE FAKE DMCA
John Edobor is a wife beater, a criminal absconding from justice in Nigeria, fired by Zenit Bank over his conduct.
But enough with the positives. John Edobor has changed. He is no longer the vile person he was before.
He is now a cyber criminal. One who impersonates, commits perjury and files fake DMCA to hide his old crimes,
Here is one of the multiple fake DMCAs he filed –
Which resulted in –
So the claim states – “I Olanisimi Osuntuyi Authorized copyrights holder of campusheathq.com. My Original work publish on my website on 11 Nov 2016. The infringer violates my copyrights. They have used more than 100% same images from original url of my website without giving any reference and taking consent. They use image for commercial purpose so I hereby request Google to remove the same from Google’s index.“
At first look, this seems like a credible copyright claim. But let us examine further. The DMCA was filed by campusheathq who has filed 2 more DMCAs.
In the other 2 DMCAs, the target were legitimate UK-based News Portals. Why would a blogger in Nigeria be interested in news stories from London ?
It’s then we realized that John Edobor impersonated a Nigerian Blogger and filed the fake DMCAs.
Ofcourse, this is just one of the many fake DMCAs. In total, John Edobor filed more than a dozen copyright claims.
SO WHAT WERE THEY TRYING TO HIDE ?
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.
A series of news articles on how John Edobor used to beat his wife, got fired by his employer Zenith Bank, and is now illegally staying in USA as an absconder from Nigeria. And judging by these fake DMCAs, it is clear that he has no regards for law and ethics.
And John Edobor did no good by trying a fraudulent method to confront these allegations. Now, we’re not so sure these allegations are fake.
EDITOR’S COMMENT : For those who might ask – ‘why and how do we interject that ‘John Edobor’ 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 ‘John Edobor’ or someone they hired was directly involved in this crime. John Edobor also cannot plead ignorance in this matter, since this notice on Google search is hard to miss, really.
