Complaint: We are investigating Leagle.com Leagle Inc and the owner u201cDonald Johnsonu201d (alias). The facts so far follow. He has a one person (convicted felon Donald L Johnson) web page and fake company Leagle.com and Leagle Inc. No people, no address, no working phone. The domain registration is probably fake and it is under investigation by ICANN. No human or identifying answer when calling the phone number listed there either. This is how Donald Johnson apparently operates his fraud. He purports to provide information about court cases in Leagle.com. However, when you run a search, frequently you do not get relevant results or even the case docket if you search for a docket, party or person as any reputable company will provide. Instead you get a few selected filings that involve embarrassing, defamatory or obvious privacy violations. He has a u201ccommentsu201d box, which content he controls completely and that he uses to fish the victim who wants the info removed. He does not remove the content that he placed to embarrass people, but apparently collects money from victims and agents hired by victims to remove the content in exchange for removal of the content that he himself placed on the internet. He will argue, as any good fraudster, that his actions are legal because the pages in his website are extracted from u201cpublic records.u201d Even if they are sealed by the courts and the fact that they were created by him and are therefore his content, that he even copyrights. Notice that his website leagle.com has no plausible way to make any money other than fraud. Google currently has complaints about Leagleu2019s copyright violations. We cannot give further details because it will compromise a criminal investigation.
