The use of this image - (link removed) is featured on your web page - (Link removed/make-time-personal-wellness/),

I have assigned case ID #0604 to track this dispute, which should be quoted in all correspondence. Once you have added an image credit to the page, the case against you will be dropped.
This letter is an official notification under Section 512(c) of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (" DMCA"). If this is unresolved immediately we'll have to proceed with filing a DMCA legal case.

At first i did check the way back machine and for 0ne, that image was never used. I dug a little deeper and found the image they were claiming copyright was and still is available as a free image since 2015 so even if the image had been used it was not in any violation.
Code: Select all
Next I checked the company name on Google with the address.... YUP you guessed! No business registered to that address or telephone number. The telephone number could be a high rate telephone number which charges extortionate prices. So although the website can be found with an exact search of the url there is nothing saying they are a registered company and certainly no mentions on any other website which pretty much screams out SCAM!!
Normally I just ignore these but this time I have decided not to!
Reverse domain check brought up 4 different domains.
IP address came back as Name Cheap.

My initial instinct was to contact the hosting and explain the situation and see if we can get them closed down but then I thought, hang on a moment, what about the unsuspecting clients .... Either their SEO company or the company supplying them back-links are acting on their behalf and probably charging them an extortionate amount of money for thee back-links so am halfway through putting an email together explaining the black hat tactics that are being used.
You never know, I might just land another client from this.
I will update when i get any further
