ISC has registered thousands of domain names, typically these are used for a few days and then abandoned as people start to post queries on boards such as this.
When people do post complaints about ISC several things can happen. Sometimes someone “employed” by ISC will counter the claims, but more often than not ISC will start to make legal threats against posts and the people running the web sites with the posts. Where legal threats fail, other methods of persuasion are used. One example is Internet Solutions Corp vs Marshall which was dismissed. Another was ISC/Alec Difrawi vs ScamFraudAlert.com which was dismissed as Anti-SLAPP LAWSUIT under California Law and
Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act
A strategic lawsuit against public participation (SLAPP) is a lawsuit that is intended to censor, intimidate and silence critics by burdening them with the cost of a legal defense until they abandon their criticism or opposition.
The plaintiff does not normally expect to win the lawsuit. The plaintiff’s goals are accomplished if the defendant succumbs to fear, intimidation, mounting legal costs or simple exhaustion and abandons the criticism. A SLAPP may also intimidate others from participating in the debate. A SLAPP is often preceded by a legal threat.
Unhappy with these rulings, Mr. Difrawi continues his pursuit of bloggers with appeals and lawsuits in Florida claiming citizenship or principal place of business as the legal basis for his frivolous lawsuits.
Past Business Practices:
It has been documented that ISC gains control or limited administrative access to sites posting information and threaten the site ownwers with lawsuits. Two sites that formerly carried information on ISC but now appear to be compromised are scam.com and419legal.org. In these cases, any posts critical to ISC are removed very quickly, clearly by someone with moderator access. These removals have never been explained.
Despite posting ” bogus job offers” to hundreds of thousands of people, it appears that the jobs offered do not exist. The only reported employment that ISC does is to recruit people to post on forums, bulletin boards, Yahoo Answers, SiteAdvisor and Wikipedia to either counter claims made by complainants or to spam or disrupt operations. A handful of people have been employed to handle phone calls or run the Florida operations, and one of them clearly identifies Alec Defrawy and Ralph Edward Bell in this WFTV report. Mr. Difrawi is marketing career education for the unemploy and that is his core business.
It is unclear what ISC does with the personal information that it gathers. Most likely it is being sold on to telemarketers, allegations of phishing and identity theft are not proven.
ISC also conceals its identity using anonymous domain registration details, virtual offices and drop boxes. In fact, Internet Solutions Corporation or The Internet Company as they are now called which is owned and operated by Mr. Difrawi claimed in court filings that he Difrawi was a Consultant to the company when legal registration showed that the company was registered in Nevada and Mr. Difrawi was the Principal owner.ISC is based in Orlando rather than any of the fictional addresses had published and have since corrected.
There are over two thousand domains connected with ISC operations. If the moderators so permit, I would like to list them in this thread. I will post the most recent domains names shortly.
Mr. Difrawi and his companies Internet Solutions Corporation now The Internet Company claims to have offices in several cities.
