ANALYZING THE FAKE DMCA
Let’s analyze these 3 fake DMCAs –
DMCA 1 –
So, Priyanka Chopra, the ‘Quantico’ star, is not happy than random websites have posted her image without her consent. Of course, in the list of infringing URLs, she slipped the target Ripoff Report quietly, hoping that it’d pass through the rest.
Obviously, it’s someone impersonating her. Otherwise Ken Collis has some great contacts in the industry.
The other fake DMCAs are quite normal and easily debunked –
DMCA 2 –
DMCA 3 –
For DMCA#2, it is easy to figure out that someone set up a free blog at https://complaintbyme.wordpress.com/ , copy-pasted the same complaint from Ripoff Report and backdated it. Then filed a DMCA notice with Google claiming that his was the original.
For DMCA#3, it’s a simple crime. The perpetrators impersonated homefacts.com and filed fake DMCAs without any basis. Homefacts.com deny anything to do with this fake DMCA.
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.
Here’s an excerpt from this report –
Started a marketing agreement with Ken collis and tlk fusion (which also does business as 21 marketing). They never provided any of the marketing reports they stated they would and were just the worst all the way around. They had 0 results from over 7500$ paid marketing. ZERO! Absolutely no return on investment. They touted they have social media expertise but my posts on Facebook, instagram and twitter all receive more views and interaction than ANY of their work. Notice how TLK Fusion and Ken Collis do not have a facebook. That is because the do such poor business it was easy for people to reviews there. So as social media experts they don’t even have a facebook presence. They did not provide reports to check their progress and even threaten litigation when I slowed down payments to demand an answer for the poor service. This is a very bad company that changes its name to avoid the consumers they have ripped off. DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH TLK FUSION, KEN COLLIS, ALFONSO MACIAS, 21 marketing, VIIVIIVII marketing- they do not have the expertise and experience that they claim- nor do they have the contracts and contacts like they claim. Awful experience with Ken Collis and TLK Fusion Marketing
WHAT IS A FAKE DMCA AND WHY ARE WE LISTED HERE ?
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 TLK Fusion Marketing – Ken Collis 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 , 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.
