A spinoff of potential predators. I resolved the issue I reported here about This was done by first asking them to remove my info from heir site. Then, I filed a report with the IC3, their domain host and several other agencies. Now, same scam, different web address. Now you can't contact them over the web by any means other than their payment screen.

They get your info from Craigslist personals ads that you respond to and post your info on their site as an online predator. Then, send you an email and tell you they'll remove you for $100.

Please report these guys and file complaints here, IC3, your state Attorney General and hope for the best.

RE: Removal

AUTHOR: Lonnie Innmon - (United States of America)


I was previously on potential predators.  I went to extensive lengths to compile a list of over 19K victims on their site.  Then, began emailing them the procedures I'm outlining below.  Online Watch obtained my info from their former attempt at extortion on PP.  Two days before I was notified by OW, I received an additional response from the original CL ad that led to my info being placed on PP; probably an attempt by OW to find a live address.  I scanned their site and found they registered their new domain 1 day before the CL email.  I don't have the time to go thru the lengths I did previously.  Give the following a try.  I've had my info removed from the new site as well.  Maybe it'll stick, maybe it'll pop up on a new site in a couple of months.  All we can do is try and hopefully the "Strength in numbers", thing will work again.

1)  File a complaint with your States Attorney General.
2)  File a report with the FBI's IC3 division.
3)  Go to Interpol's website (European verson of FBI) and file a report.
4)  Send an email to ICC (Intl Chamber of Commerce, Sweden) at
5)  Send an email to (Stockholm Chamber of Commerce).
6)  Send an email to (1 of the Domain Providers listed in their whois info on RIPE.NET)
7)  Send an email to
8)  Send an email to me if you have questions or are successful at having your info removed.

Do these steps, in this order.  State your case on 1 & 2, copy and paste the email header from OW's original email to you in your report.  Additionally, include their IP address (  You can also go as far as providing these agencies their domain registrant/registrar info, but I've already included the information I obtained from their WHOIS info from ARIN.NET and RIPE.NET.  With each email, include the steps you've already taken and request their assistance.  Finally, on step 7, include the steps you've taken, include the agencies names you've made reports with and request their assistance as they are the only contact to the site owner.  They may respond they may not.  Apparently, I got someone's attention taking these steps.  My info isn't there now.  This post will probably land me back on there again though.  If we get the attention of these agencies by bombarding them, maybe they'll be able to find this person and put them under the jail.

internet scam out of country update

AUTHOR: Dawson13 - (USA)

I received a phone call today 10-22-12 from the Massachusetts attorney general confirming that is a scam and that I should not give them any money. Unfortunately 1 state can't do anything because the web site is being run out of another country so it would fall under the federal government to take care of the scam. But I was still happy to get the call and to find out that this isn't a web site being run by any of our fellow Americans and it's being run out of another country trying to profit of the people of the united states. So please don't waste your money on these dirt bags. I was also told that for now another option is to get a private attorney and try to sue them. You can also file a report with your states attorney general and IC3. I hope this info helps thanks for reading.       Rose
