Here is my story! I found my mugshot was published on a website and accessible VIA search engines like Google!
I accessed the site and looked all through it. Next to my mugshot was an offer to remove it.
I wasn't sure about the legality of this and asked some friends.
A 'Remove This Mugshot' link was readily available next to my mugshot and all the mugshots they published. I was thinking "this is a nice little scam these people have".
Reluctantly, I clicked the link and was able to input my credit card, hoping the site would remove the mugshot. There was no third-party agency involved. I paid the site DIRECTLY to remove it.
When I checked my credit card account to see who billed me, I was shocked to see that merchant listed on the transaction wasINTERNETREPUTATION.COM! They conveniently LEFT THEIR NAME OFF THE RECEIPT!
Turns out, they flat-out OWN the mugshot site and charge people to remove them. AND NOW, MY MUGSHOT IS APPEARING ON OTHER WEBSITES! Guess who the merchant is when I go to remove them? INTERNETREPUTATION.COM!
And then have the audacity to call themselves a "reputation firm" HOGWASH! CRIMINAL!
I am making this report because this company www.internetreputation.com is a deceitful extortion racket masquerading as a "reputation firm".
I called their number 800-758-9012 to give them a piece of my mind. I looked them up and saw that Gary Bloom is a primary participant in the criminal-like activity.
InternetReputation.com is nothing but a couple d**k-heads operating a Scam-Extortion Rip-Off. Charge your credit card back if you remove your mugshot, it's illegal for them to place it back online, this is how you can defeat them!
