How Do I Remove False Reviews From Citysearch?

By Aaron Minc on December 28, 2016

Removing a listing on Citysearch

Citysearch.com is a website with long and deep roots on the Internet. The site has been active since the mid-1990s and has provided users with a means to comment on local businesses and restaurants. While Citysearch has been eclipsed by some of its younger, larger rivals, the site still maintains a level of influence over consumers and potential clients. Citysearch allows users to vote and post reviews regarding the perceived quality of restaurants, salons, bars, spas, music venues, retail stores and many other locations. Business owners recognize that false and defamatory reviews about their business can result in serious consequences including loss of business. While many reviewers are fair and take their community responsibility seriously, other reviewers act less admirably. It is not unheard of for reviewers to unfairly and inaccurately characterize an experience for perceived minor slights or after having their request for special treatment rebuffed. Business owners who…

Online Extortion: When Do Internet Postings Become Illegal?

By Aaron Minc on December 14, 2016

Online Extortion Requests

Recently CNN released an article questioning if 2016 would be known as the year of online extortion. In their article,  CNN highlights some well-known and public online extortion cases. Many of these extortion events involve ransomware, which holds a computer’s files ransom until a person pays for their files to be released.  This is a growing problem across the country and something the FBI has estimated has cost its victims $18 million dollars just since April of 2014.  People have begun asking if these sorts of programs are legal.  The answer is almost certainly no! What is Online Extortion? Extortion is the gaining of property or money by almost any kind of force, or threat of violence, property damage, harm to reputation, or by unfavorable government action.   Extortion is a crime of varying degrees in every state and there is a federal law pertaining to extortion, which can be found at…

Do You Need a Court Order to Remove a Website from Google?

By Aaron Minc on November 23, 2016

Defamation on Google Search

Google is the largest and most dominant search engine in the United States and in many foreign nations. In fact, an October 2015 com Score report found that Google held nearly 65% of the U.S. desktop search engine market. This market share dwarfs its second-largest competitor, Microsoft (Bing), which holds only approximately 20% of the market. In the mobile search space, Google’s dominance is even more pronounced. In the mobile space where Google’s market share is buttressed by its Android operating system, the company’s mobile search market share is likely much greater. Globally, Google accounts for almost 90 percent of the search market. It is no surprise that people who are defamed online discover the defamation through a Google search on their own name. In other cases a family member, friend, or colleague may stumble across the search results. Thus, many people wish to tackle the problem at the location…

By Aaron Minc on November 10, 2016

Facebook Slander

Almost everyone is on Facebook. Even if they are not a member of the popular social media site, they are probably at least familiar with it. Indeed with an online community of over one billion people, Facebook has become the largest social media platform. Users can post pictures, leave comments, like and share things with their family, friends and loved ones.

People have come to find that being targeted on the Internet or on Facebook can really be disastrous to their life. Fortunately, the good people at Facebook do not encourage this type of behavior and have designed a reporting system in an effort to fulfill their mission of connecting the world. If you have…

Removing information on Scamfound.com

The Internet provides a powerful voice for its users. Every day individuals can debate hot topics, discuss life experiences, and share warnings to friends and family in regards to alleged scams, swindles, and other dishonest businesses and individuals.
