ANALYZING THE FAKE DMCA
Lets examine the DMCA notice –
Here is what was claimed –
So, in short, Carren Mall states that an article she wrote at a random website ‘clickforcontent.com‘ was mysteriously republished at RipoffReport pages, as well as the famous tech magazine – Arstechnica.com.
Also the fact that the supposed ‘original’ article is no longer online – http://www.clickforcontent.com/rj-makay-recruiting-firm-looks-like-well-engineered-scam/ , sounds suspicious to us.
So, we got in touch with Ripoff Report, and Arstechnica.com, and they have no idea about this. As usual, this is another big pile of S**t attempted by a Reputation agency, or is it?
Here’s what we found recently –
We found another baseless DMCA notice, this time filed by the RJ and Makay associate ‘Misty Rice’ herself – https://www.lumendatabase.org/notices/14056463 .
Here, she alleges that a comment she wrote on DIRTYSCAM.COM, was copy-pasted on Ripoff Report.
The only problem is, Dirtyscam.com has been active only since past 2 years, while the comments she alleges to be plagiarised were posted in 2009.
Perhaps Misty Rice has everything to do with the fake DMCAs after all, and we’ll do our best to ensure that Ripoff Report and ArseTechnica goes after them for damages till they come clean and explain their actions.
SO WHAT WERE THEY TRYING TO HIDE ?
A damning review at Ripoff Report, of course. Here’ is what is said, verbatim –
RJandMakay is a ripoff recruitment company. They have you sign a contract and promise that you will be paid $150 for each FA that you schedule to meet with a Manager with their Financial Planning Company. They have you calling FAs in various States to schedule the appointments. If you don’t schedule an appointment they harrass you. You are suppose to schedule so many appointments and if you don’t they terminate your contract.
You can have so many appointments set up but you will never see the money because they will say that the person never showed up for the appointment. You could have tentative appointments scheduled for future months but you will never receive the money because you are no longer employed and no matter how much work you did to schedule those appointments you will not receive the money and I am sure that they will call those people and get the money for themselves.
Do not fall for this scam. It is a waste of your time and effort.

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 Torrence Boone , MoneyLife.in, 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.
