What a merry day it is! What a merry day it is. For days; Green Geeks management team has been fighting hard to take out that fraudster who cloned their site. Okay… if you don’t know what technofox.co.in is… its a site that was established in India. It was distributing Green Geeks’s content at its hosting directory. As I checked this site for any possible updates to confirm if the site has been taken down via its directory.
Recently; I taken a look of these search results via Google; I discovered the scam sites who were involved in cloning Green Geeks being removed from results. Although; I made a call to the support team the other day… and let them know. Well, I did the right thing,–so people won’t go to the wrong site.
I did the search… but the cloned site is still there. However, the result hasn’t been removed just yet. If you do an exact search for technofox.co.in/hosting/… you can still see this website cloning Green Geeks. Here’s my additional analysis:
- The site is still there.
- The cloned content is still there.
- Copyrighted content stolen from Green Geeks’s website.
- Trademarked material stolen for the purpose of committing fraud.
- Their blog content is stolen and hijacked.
- Their affiliate program is hijacked.
- Their entire content from a real site is copied to make it look like its a real site. This is the known attempt to phish data from users who already has a Green Geeks account.
- Although; Google did their good job deranking their site from their results,–so people can go to the legitimate site instead.
- Maybe the website owner who copied Green Geeks’s request to seize cloning their content on their site.
- Merchant account programs has been hijacked.
- Malicious activity may be behind these hijacked links to Green Geeks products that are hijacked.
Although; this website is located in India… maybe they have these weak copyright laws, or their copyright laws are out of shape.
I believe the management team via Green Geeks has an option to file a copyright complaint, and have this site that is involved in this form of attempted fraud taken down… if the webmaster behind the fraudulent site don’t seize cloning Green Geeks’s website.
What I posted earlier… this site hasn’t been complying with copyright laws for the past years! I believe the fraudster who is running this site should be removed from our internet,–so he won’t phish any of the existing customers who were trying to go to the legitimate site, Green Geeks. However; what they told me… the management team will be notified about my report.
Maybe the webmaster didn’t even ask Green Geeks for permission to reuse their content, nor legally create his own web hosting company from scratch by signing up for a reseller hosting account.
What You Should Do

For the past years, I’ve started believing in fairies since 2005, and alternative to believing in God, but some people didn’t even understand, anyone can believe in fairies. But a decision is yours. Anybody can believe in fairies, not just kids! That’s what some people didn’t even understand. What if you written a book about fairies, or you watched movies about fairies, and someone said “You are too old for fairies!!” You’ve been offended by some person who don’t believe in fairies. You had the right to believe in fairies,–it doesn’t matter how old you are. I’ve started believing in fairies because, I’m trying to change my lifestyle for the purpose of getting my abilities back,–after I lost my vision. It was a bit successful. But I’m still finding the ways to believe in fairies without effort.
There was an endless fraud on YouTube… it was copyfraud. These greedy corporations has been stealing public domain content, and claiming copyright and intellectual property as their own content. YouTube’s Content ID program has been linked to fraudulent copyright claims that are too difficult to combat. Their anti-piracy system has been causing some users to upload less videos… and cause their accounts to be wrongfully terminated. Although; these corporations are NOT caring about their audience, they only care about money! Well, money doesn’t grow on trees. You have to pay taxes, and other bills to keep your products going, and your services running.
