  1. Are you not able to name this company? I get bombarded by SEO spam daily and while some companies are legitimate, others are definitely not. If this is the company I’ve had an ugly experience with then people need to know that this is a highly sophisticated set up and these people, who operate from the UK, are ruthless thugs and bullies who have gone so far as to set up fake websites for non-existent legal firms to send threatening letters. They target small businesses and seem to hit on women-owned businesses in particular, possibly because they think we are more easily bullied. For the sake of your readers PLEASE name and shame these people. They are not just clever scammers, they are dangerous.
