ANALYZING THE FAKE DMCA
This is a recently filed fake DMCA, impersonating an Indian News Channel ‘TimesNow’, which hints at the location of this particular Reputation service hired by Michael P. Calo.
The DMCA complaint itself is one of the funniest we have seen. The complainant tells Google that ‘TheDay.com’, a newspaper in London, UK, is stealing content from his Blogspot website 🙂
Here is what he actually wrote –
The infringer use my copy righted for commercial purpose. The infringer through my content make money from Google adsense. The original content publish on our website on February 05, 2011.
This would have been funny, if it wasn’t illegal.
As for the Pastor Michael P. Calo who hired these criminals, the lord giveth and the lord taketh away !
SO WHAT WERE THEY TRYING TO HIDE ?
You do God’s work, but your past haunts you. After nearly a decade, someone asks Michael P. Calo about the fraud convictions and the CFTC orders issued against him. There might be more if someone really wants to find out.
Here’s what the article at TheDay.com says about Michael P. Calo –
A past like Mike Calo’s stokes the concerns of two families and the police that Calo could be using his position of spiritual leader to prey on the vulnerable.
In 2001 – one year before founding Shoreline Church – Calo was convicted of setting up a false business to defraud a Korean businessman. A year before that, a federal commodity futures agency ordered Calo to stop publishing financial advice newsletters it said he was using to defraud clients.
According to a 2000 arrest warrant from the Waterbury Police Department, Calo told In Ho Kim of Maxfit Business Consulting Co., whom he’d met four years earlier, that he was in the venture capital business and could help Kim finance a $2.5 million hotel purchase in Guam.
Calo told police that in 1999 he fabricated a lending company called First Atlantic Investments, a subsidiary of First Financial Group, which claimed to have offices in the Cayman Islands, South America and the United States. First Financial was based at 32 N. Main St. in Waterbury, which belonged to Calo’s uncle, Rocco Calo, before he sold it, police said.
Calo was sentenced in April 2001 to a suspended prison sentence and three years probation after pleading no contest to the first-degree larceny charge. The larceny is Calo’s only criminal conviction, according to a check of public records.
EDITOR’S COMMENT : For those who might ask – ‘why and how do we interject that ‘Michael P. Calo’ 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 ‘Michael P. Calo’ or someone they hired was directly involved in this crime. Michael P. Calo also cannot plead ignorance in this matter, since this notice on Google search is hard to miss, really.
