The DMCA Scam Returns in the Form of Nationwide Legal Services

Cheryl Allison

As you may possibly remember, past spring I unraveled a fraud in which somebody pretending to be an legal professional despatched out phony DMCA takedown notices. That scam was centered around a internet site that pretended to be the regulation firm of Arthur Davidson Legal. Sooner or later, that web page was suspended by its internet hosting corporation. Properly it seems that fraud has popped-up all over again. This time in the sort of a web-site that pretends to be the legislation organization of Nationwide Lawful in Austin, Texas.

In excess of the weekend I received an e mail from a person boasting to be a trademark legal professional with the regulation firm of Nationwide Legal. I will not likely backlink to it, but you can uncover it at nationwidelaw (dot) org. The electronic mail had all of the very same tell-tale signals of currently being a fraud as the past rip-off that employed a web-site pretending to be the legislation organization of Arthur Davidson. All those symptoms contain not essentially addressing me by title and not inquiring for anything other than a connection to some shady site. Acquire a seem at the screenshot of the e-mail underneath and see what other symptoms of a scam you can location.

Other indications of the rip-off:

When I went to the web-site, I discovered the photo of the man or woman who pretends to be “Alicia Weber, Trademark Attorney.” I then did a reverse picture search of her image and discovered that she also goes by the identify of Maria and is a professor of history at MetaTeaching and seems on dozens of other internet websites.

A variation on the exact same lawyer website domain has previously been suspended by its host. And at the time I report this a single to its hosting business, I’m guaranteed it will also be suspended.

The lessons!

1. If you get an e mail from an individual claiming to be an lawyer, will not think it if they won’t be able to even trouble to address you by identify.

2. Do not be a sleazy, lazy scammer. out?v=KE7_sPrzF6w
