Ladies Try to Stop My Foreclosure Blog

Sorry for the interruptions in the last 12 hours. Since I went public with the full story on Erin Morgan (PrLinkBiz) and Joy O’Day yesterday, things have been a little bit crazy.

The ladies actually sent a complaint to my hosting company HostGator.com sometime last night with threats of a lawsuit. Here it is:

Dear Customer,

[COMPLAINT]
To whom it may concern,

I am writing this to demand the removal of the content displayed at the domain http://www.iamfacingforeclosure.com/. Casey Serin or domain author has:

– posted confidential information regarding Erin Morgan, Joy O’Day and TAO Realty, L.L.C. despite having signed an NDA. The signed NDA is posted on the site with repeated admissions to the signature of the NDA.

– posted, and allowed his bloggers to post, untruthful and slanderous information in effort to defame the character of the parties aforementioned

– posted a link to a video created and owned by Robert Kiyosaki and / or Cashflow Technlogies / Rich Dad as well as posted, and allowed his bloggers to post, untruthful and slanderous information in effort to defame the character of Robert Kiyosaki

Casey Serin, iamfaingforeclosure.com and applicable persons or entities will soon be party to litigation for his actions. If your company continues to host Casey Serin’s blog, your company, by its inaction, could potentially be a party to this litigation as you have been formally notified.

===================

Regards,
HostGator Technical Support / Abuse Team Lead,

The hosting company pulled the plug on me immediately and I was down for over 12 hours. I am amazed how easy it is for somebody to bring a website down with one intimidating-looking email with very questionable claims.

I am assuming since I am only paying $10/mo for hosting means that the hosting company would actually be loosing money trying to look into the validity of the complaint and calling me about it. They would rather pull the switch and avoid any potential liability. I don’t blame them though. That’s cheap hosting for ya. (If you have controversial info or major “haters” on your blog, let this be a lesson to you.)

I must admit though, the support response time for HostGator was very fast and they have been VERY helpful. And I just like their service all around. Definitely consider them for all your cheap hosting needs (and no, I don’t make any referral fees, just a shameless plug.)

I did tell the hosting company that we will take care of the content under question. However, instead of taking anything down I’m working with some people right now to move this website to better location.

So I’m back up for the moment but I wouldn’t be surprised if the ladies try to pull another fast one. Man this is becoming way too dramatic…

Thanks for Duane for posting the update on his blog while I was down.

Also… thanks to Nigel Swaby’s post, I just realized that www.NoLimitsLadies site is down… I agree with Nigel they probably took it down to hide evidence.

Thanks to Google for the cached version of Casey Serin: Deal or No Deal? How It All Went Down… by PrlinkBiz herself. As you can see it pretty much confirms my story and you can see that I am not making this stuff.

TO EVERYBODY: I am very grateful for this blog and the community around it for all your guys’ help, especially the pro bono attorney. Thanks man!
