scamFRAUDalert believe individual’s PUBLIC RECORDS are not COMMUNITY PROPERTY of  the internet nor are they the property of anyone who can quantify such information and make them accessible to the public via the internet.

They are the PRIVATE PROPERTY of  INDIVIDUALS who may have had run in with the law enforcement and MUST remain PRIVATE.

Unless such information are sought by LOCAL, STATE, FEDERAL officials or some LEGAL ENTITY for legitimate purposes, these RECORDS in the PUBLIC domain are PRIVATE and not a PUBLIC COMMODITY FOR EXTORTION’S PURPOSES.

What really got our attention is the website Potential Predators who name changed to

The sites operator and accomplices set up mouse trap by advertising on for lonely men looking to hookup with females for some rendezvous by responding to craigslist’s personal ad section “women seeking men.”

The operators and his co-conspirators then uploaded thousands of photos they had obtained from men showing their penis or behaving indecently in chats with someone who they thought were females  some of who clearly stated they were minor.

The operators begun sending out email to these men informing them they were listed on potential predator which name quickly change to

For a fee of $99 – $499, the site operators told these men they could have their indecent mugshot, chat or insane photos removed. This is clearly a practice of extortion in our opinion. This is a proliferating threat to the internet and privacy.

    Bizarre Logic and Reasoning
    If kidnappers called the ransom amount the returning person fee would it bedazzle the system again? If the kidnappers rationalized their acts with the same logic would the system be mystified by them? Reasoning, they had to go through the hassle of kidnapping someone hence they are entitled to the returning person fee (Ransom Money).

    If blackmailers called the extortion amount the unpublish/reputation repair fee would it bedazzle the system? Further, if the blackmailers rationalized their acts with the same logic would the system by mystified be them? Reasoning, they had to go through the hassle of stealing government property, identity theft, stalking people, holding people to involuntary servitude, injuring their reputation, collecting an unlawful debt.


  3. Sheila Friedland says:

    The only way to stop the proliferation of mugshot sites that extort money from people and ruin lives is to depose the Google executives who perpetuate the scheme through fraud.

    Joel Stempler and I [Sheila Friedland] are bringing an action in Florida to depose these Google execs and strip away the cloak of anonymity from these crooks. Section 230 of the CDA does not give Google absolute immunity under the First Amendment.

    Here’s why this is important. The sale of individual personal data put all of us at RISKS.

    Anyone from North America, Europe, Asia, Africa, Latin America or the Middle East can purchased your personal data online and then do whatever he or she want to do with it. That is if it is not already happening. The cat is already out of the doors.

    They can create a profile, contact your bank, your current employer or previous employer or whatever.

    This we see as a clear and present danger as this is proliferating online by the sale and release of personal data in the public domain by federal, state, local governments and law enforcement agencies under the freedom of information act.
