The Fake DMCA Notices
It seems LIronFX has a few unflattering articles ranking high on search engines. The website owners did not agree to remove the reviews, and therefore IronFX took matters into their own hands.
It is quite evident that ‘Steven Miller‘ who filed these DMCA notices, does not own any rights to the content. Papa Networks seems to be a Reputation Firm operated from Pakistan or India as per Google’s records.
What are they trying to hide?
Here are some key excerpts from some of these removed links –
Have you heard of the IronFX broker? This is a broker offering traders to invest in forex and other financial markets, this brand belongs to the company IronFX Global Limited and its president is Mr Markos A. Kashiouris. We strongly encourage you to stay away from this broker as much as possible and not to use its services. IronFX is a broker which was serious a few years ago but which is obviously turning into a scam.
Is the IronFX broker a scam? YES!
The answer is yes, for us, there is no longer any doubt about the IronFX broker, we can now place it in the category of forex brokers to be avoided and those who have no qualms about defrauding private investors and professionals as well as the affiliates with whom they have worked for many years. Some traders paid the price and sometimes lost several thousand euros with IronFX, but this is also the case with our Forexagon website as we will explain to you.
The background to the IronFX scam
Tens of thousands of investors all over the world have had their money stolen in a huge Ponzi scheme by a Cypriot broker. The whistle was blown by former employees who worked in the most sensitive department. They expose staggering managerial incompetence, crony political corruption, and finally the mass theft of investor funds to plug the gaping holes in the company’s balance sheet.
The journalist also invested around £ 500 with Iron FX which he then converted into £ 3500. But when it tried to get the money back last year, the broker totally blocked the money. They could not be withdrawn as the company has serious liquidity issues. And the scenario is multiplied everywhere in Europe!
Iron FX is now in trouble, but the man behind it has a long arm. He counts on heavyweights among his political friends like the President of Cyprus. The latter even inaugurated the opening of the company’s world headquarters in 2013.
We have discovered this fake DMCA and have verified it to be so. Hence this article. The following stages will include –
- manually informing all relevant parties involved in this, including Google, IronFX, the beneficiary
- forwarding the information to Lumen Database and selected media organizations who are interested in these cases
- publishing the negative content (they tried to remove) on multiple free-speech platforms such as ripoffreport.com, nameandshame.com, etc so that copies of the content are available for eternity, and the purpose of this fake DMCA lost forever
- continue investigating this case to find out which of the actors are involved, including any reputation or law firm, and if/when found, we’ll make sure everyone knows who is behind these illegal activities
- set up Google ads to name and shame these so-called beneficiaries of these scams
- and most importantly, we’ll forward our findings to all relevant law enforcement agencies in the jurisdiction of the beneficiary
What is a fake DMCA?
In case you are one of the ‘beneficiaries’ listed in this report and are wondering what really happened, we suggest you look within. If it wasn’t you, or your associates, it is definitely the ‘Reputation’ or ‘SEO’ firm you had hired in the past. Perhaps it was your law firm. So, instead of blaming us for this article, you must grill your Reputation/SEO firm and look for answers. We are merely publishing the facts available on public database and have nothing against you personally. It is more than likely that the service you hired indulged in criminal methods to deliver results for you.
Fake Fraudulent DMCA might seem inconspicuous until it’s you at the receiving end of this crime. This is not a prank. This is not an inconvenience. This is not random. These fake DMCA cases are calculated criminal schemes targeting very specific and rather important information/content. These hitjobs are usually against the media, in order to help their client hide important information from the public’s eye, all in the name of Reputation Management. Millions of dollars are spent doing this, and if no one wants to bring this topic to the fore, we will.
