YOUR BUSINESS IS FALSELY DEFAMED – NOW WHAT?
Businesses Often Lose 10-70% Of Business After Being Attacked
REALISTIC OPTIONS TO FIGHT
Our Cyber Firm receives approximately 250 requests per month for help on internet defamation. The client is always very frustrated because they did NOTHING to cause this attack but yet their reputation, or worse their business, is now suffering in a major way.
In an ideal world (but not realistic), you would report this abuse to the website and they would take it down. Unfortunately, that almost never happens. So now you are left scrambling to determine how to best solve your emergency situation. Based on 100’s and 100’s of cases, we can simply your options for you:
John Doe, Defamation Lawsuit
A standard approach for handling this type of problem (we can assist you) is to bring a John Doe law suit (even though you can’t yet prove who did it) and then use the power of subpoenas to catch the person, sue them, and get the court’s help to remove the damaging material. While this is a highly effective tool, the cost typically ranges in the $5,000 – $10,000 range so it is used as a last resort.
Put Defamer On Notice
In many situations, the defamer can be stopped, and also encouraged to remove the material if they receive a CREDIBLE threat of litigation. However, most defamers know that 99% of attorneys can’t catch them so they don’t believe most lawsuit threats. In fact, we often see attorneys defamed after posting these kind of notices and then the attorneys can’t defend themselves. However, if the defamer believes they can be caught and then sued (which they can), then you put the odds in your favor.
OUR INVESTIGATION NOTICE
This notice is used to place the defamer on notice that they are in violation of defamation laws, that an investigation has begun, and that the client is reserving the option to bring civil litigation. Because this notice is being issued by a Cyber Investigation Firm that catches defamers every single week, it not only adds serious credibility to your claims but gives you an immediate path if they do not stop.
This notice can be effective in any of the following cases:
- Defamatory Comments Or Reviews
- Defamation On Forums
- Email Defamation
- Facebook Defamation or Stalking
Using investigative techniques, along with our ability to support John Doe litigation in all 50 states (and Canada), there is a high probability that we can bring your defamer to justice with a lawsuit: however, that is an expensive proposition and should be reserved for a last resort.
The good news is that with just a little bit of digging by the defamer on our background and they will rapidly determine that you have retained a formidable ally to help your case.
It will be very difficult to not take your threat of litigation seriously at that point.
THREE BENEFITS OF THE INVESTIGATION NOTICE
Put Defamer On Notice
If the notice is credible, this can have the benefit of getting the defamer to stop and also potentially to remove the material. If this happens, then you have obtained a very cost effective total solution to your problem.
CLEAR YOUR NAME
People believe what they read on the internet and that includes defamation. In addition, people are very inclined to NOT believe the victim if they rebut the defamatory information. However, when an official notice is placed on the defamatory material by our cyber group, future visitors are notified by a 3rd party that the information is false and that litigation is potentially pending. This is viewed in a totally different light.
Every investigation notice is actually an active investigation. Using proprietary techniques, we will actually be collecting IP addresses of visitors for 30 days. If this matter does not resolve and you have to move forward to litigation, this preliminary investigation can prove invaluable in a John Doe litigation case. We will retain this information and utilize it if your require our services at a future date.
