We’ve been cloned on Google, Have You?
I’ve discovered what appears to be a cloned website with some of my company information posted on it. And of all places, wouldn’t you know it, right in plain site in the #1 slot on the Google search engine; And what appears be and may be the internet scam of the millennium.
To all our faithful members, customers, and visitors:
PLEASE NOTE: “Bradford LifeStyles” [.com], IS NOT AFFILIATED WITH, NOR ARE WE PARTNERED IN ANY WAY WITH ANY OF THE FOLLOWING COMPANIES:
“CASUAL LIVING” or “Progressive Business Media” of Greensboro, North Carolina, nor any of Progressive Business Media’s other subsidy’s (Designer Today, Furniture Today, Gifts and Decorative Accessories, HFN, Home Accents Today, Home Textiles Today, and Kids Today).
The screen shot below shows this “Casual Living” website, located at the top of the Google search engine, and appears to be a legitimate website of a Canadian business with the same name Bradford Lifestyles and a domain name and URL of “Casual Living [.com]” (note the lowercase “s” in Casual Livings Bradford Lifestyles is different than ours “Bradford LifeStyles” and our domain name and URL is bradfordlifestyles.com. The Email address shown; “email@example.com” does belong to me, and is an email of the domain BradfordLifeStyles.com; My Company: “Bradford LifeStyles”.
It is unclear to me at this time as to the how and why this happened or to what extent Google has been compromised and how many websites and or businesses have been effected, infected, and/or cloned. I’m putting this notice out as a public service notice and warning. My information is limited and sketchy, but it appears this site listed at the top of the Google search engine is a cloned site of Progressive Business Media’s subsidy Casual Living; or how this slipped under the radar of Google.
This screen shot of Global Shoe Connection’s footer shows a different phone number than the one listed in the google search results above but the same address
I have notified the proper cyber crimes authorities in both the US and Canada and are awaiting their response.
To be safe and lean on the the side of caution; until further notice; I will ONLY be taking and filling orders by phone. Please use my contact page HERE to schedule a return phone call from me to place an order or request more information..
