Please do not reply to this email, as we are not able to respond to messages sent to this address.
When you click on the PredatorsWatch.com link, you are directed to a newly created profile with YOUR photo and YOUR email with a false claim that you are some kind of predator. When all you did was answer a non-sexual ad on craigslist from a “woman” looking for companionship.
PredatorsWatch.com seeks to extort $99 from each unsuspecting victim. They even have a legal section threatening YOU not to try and sue them because in their distorted world view, they think it is legal for them to post false ads, then post your photo on their website falsely claiming that you are some kind of internet predator. It doesnt get any lower on the scumbag list than this.
the PredatorsWatch website has been reported as a scam, rip-off and fraudulent extortion ring numerous times. They have the audacity to threaten YOU if you are thinking about suing them. We anticipate that the purveyors of this extortion and blackmail ring will end up dead in a gutter somewhere once they falsely accuse the wrong innocent victim then publicly post their photo on their “predators” website.
PredarorsWatch – The Online Watch Extortion, defamation, slander, blackmail, Internet Scam
PredatorsWatch.com has created a spinoff of other websites who legitimately seek to expose real potential internet predators. Some have successfully resolved the issue by first asking them to remove the erroneous info from their site. Then, you can file a report with the IC3, their domain host and several other agencies.
They were shut down under a previous web address. So now PredatorsWatch.com has the same scam with different web address.
PredatorsWatch.com gets your info from Craigslist personals ads that they themselves post and when you respond to the post, they take your info and post it on their site as an online predator. Then, Predators Watch sends you an email to inform you they will remove remove it for $100.
Please report PredatorsWatch.com and file complaints to IC3 and your state Attorney General.
