I recently got into an altercation with my 14 year old son
and was arrested, since then I have been cleared of all wrong doing and case has been dismissed.
While on a sales visit I was confronted by a colleague who advised me that my face was all over the internet and his company cannot be associated with any criminal doing.
The company he referred to is mugshots.com, when I visited the site lord behold clear as daylight this site has my face and all sides of it posted on the internet making me out to be a criminal.
I did some research and found a contact number for the company and when I asked if they can remove my name and face as this case has been dismissed they replied with a Sure as long as you pay a fee of $750.00 well be more than happy to help you out with that.
This is extortion I said to the man who stated his name was kaycee, He became belligerent and told me that mugshots.com is a multi-million dollar company and that the only way I was going to get my name and image of their website was if I paid them the fee, then he went on to state that I would also need to pay their other sister websites in order to get the same service but that they could not guarantee 100% that it will not pop up again in the future. I became very upset with him and told him I would be contacting my lawyer he laughed it off and said go ahead idiot! All youll do is spend more
money and at the end of the day youll be right back here paying the fee. So Im trying to help you here just pay the fee and your name will be taken down thats it simple as that he said.
How can they do this and get away with it? Is there no justice its EXTORTION/ BLACKMAIL even when I told him I wasnt going to pay one red cent he said ok then lose your job and credibility and then hung up hung up.
Since then this website has caused my business the loss of 3 clients and has harmed my reputation among colleagues and parents. I now fear that if I dont pay the crazy amount of close to $5,000 my business will continue to
suffer and all my current B2B sales will soon start to crumble.
Please advise me on how can I help you help me stop these sites from diminishing the reputation of the innocent and business owners such as myself?
