ANALYZING THE FAKE DMCA
On 25 Mar 2016, ‘Maria Boggs‘ filed a DMCA report that content was stolen from RepDigger.com and posted on Ripoffreport.com. It’s a simple case and we’ll try to keep it short and simple –
- According to the archived version of the alleged original page, the comment by ‘Maria Boggs’ was published on RepDigger.com on 21 Oct 2014. However, since RepDigger.com domain was registered on 19th April 2015, it is quite evident that the comment was planted. There is no question about it.
- We now wonder the part played by owners of RepDigger.com into planting this fake comment, since only someone with admin access can accomplish that.
SO WHAT WERE THEY TRYING TO HIDE ?
Mindable Astrology had an unflattering complaint on Ripoff Report since Sep 2015. Being an astrology marketing firm, reputation goes a long way into securing new business. But Ripoff Report ranks high, and it hurts.
So Mindable Astrology hires a bunch of scammers to deceive their way into removing the Ripoff Report from Google. Who could’ve predicted that ?
EDITOR’S COMMENT : For those who might ask – ‘why and how do we interject that ‘Mindable Astrology’ 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 ‘Mindable Astrology’ or someone they hired was directly involved in this crime. Mindable Astrology also cannot plead ignorance in this matter, since this notice on Google search is hard to miss, really.
