New Companies should be warned, individuals are writing false allegations and posting them on forums with damaging words such as scam. Immediately following these false and damaging forum postings, a PR company will contact your company offering their services to remove the bad press for a small fee.

Carolina Consulting Ltd took immediate action through our in house legal department. It was bought to our attention that these postings are from con artists whose goal is to acquire money from the business for removing their allegations. In the most recent case after stressing our legal terms and demanding the information is removed from the forum we received a response from the author of the posting:

“I have been reviewing the terms of the website and since the complaint
for Carolina Consulting is not based on my own experience, I am happy to
remove it. I am trying to contact the website’s administration team; it
is not possible for me to do it myself. We do not have the intention of
attacking anyone in particular, we just share information. As i said,
since it is not my experience, i am happy to remove that one, once the
website team replied to my email. I dont know how long it will take, therefore I will write a
comment letting readers now, it is not my experience and the information
given might not be true. Again, please contact me to acknowledge the
receipt of this email and to let me know if it is on with you.”

Carolina Consulting Ltd warns other new companies to take action against these malicious and deceptive people and PR companies.

To report a scam:
Blackmail is the crime of threatening to reveal substantially true information about a person to the public, a family member, or associates unless a demand made upon the victim is met. This information is usually of an embarrassing, socially damaging, and/or incriminating nature. As the information is substantially true, the act of revealing the information may not be criminal in its own right nor amount to a civil law defamation; the crime is making demands in exchange for withholding it. English Law creates a much broader definition of blackmail, covering any unwarranted demands with menaces, whether involving revealing information or not.
