hxxp://RemoveMyName.com -- they say they can guarantee results
for getting your name off bad sites and improving online
The site seems legit, and it would be helpful if they can do it
But it's so new, I thought maybe experts here could evaluate and
see if they are genuine. They are at the BBB:
BBB Accredited Business since 07/30/2012
Based upon what I read through google and elsewhere, I would not
consider using a company like them that has dubious claims and
various complaints against them. These guys smell fishy.
Frankly speaking, if people are dumb enough to post "nakid"
pictures of themselves on the internet, then they get what they
Speaking personally I find that all of these operations should
be red. This includes:
- Mugshot/criminal records
- Inappropriate photos
- Accusations that are not verified and can't be responded to (STD
carriers, cheaters, ethical lapses, etc.)
(which is 3 out of the 10 categories they claim to support)
Don't get me wrong, there are legitimate SEO businesses that
exist to create good 'organic' results that can 'push down' bad
ones. Otherwise though, it just seems like a thinly veiled
On the plus side though, they apparently have been in business
since 2008 which is before all these sites started popping up, so
there could be some legitimacy there. The WhoIs info is private,
which seems ironic in a way.
I'm kind of torn; at best it is a legitimate reputation
management company, but if so why do they market themselves as a
grey market extortion-enabler? Not rating yet in the hopes that
another member with more time/savvy can clear it up.
WOW.. RemoveMyName.com are funny. If they can remove complaints
then why is there lot of complaints on them?. This tells me one
thing SCAM.... if they cant remove there own complaints that are on
them then how can they help other people remove there

Thank you so much everybody!
The negative reviews on the exposeascam site are recent, so the
fact that they are still there doesn't mean much. If you follow the
links, it's clear the people (person?) posting is not reliable and
at least some stuff is clearly fabricated.
The BBB rating is good. They are apparently satisfied they know
the location of the business, which is a BBB member. They raise the
same question of the short time in business reducing the trust
The site doesn't seem to be promising too much, just what they
can legally accomplish. While you might be able to achieve the same
results on your own, it might be worth it to you to not have to
deal directly with the owners of distasteful extortion sites.
Yes, WOT has a wiki. Check there first
for fast answers to many questions like "Why is my
site rated red, and how do I fix that?"
Re "BBB Accredited Business since 07/30/2012"
Don't rely too much on a BBB Accreditation, especially in the
light of the information in
c۞g's posting above.
