Central, Hong Kong –(BUSINESS WIRE)– High West Capital Partners Acknowledges Firm Is Target and Victim of Defamation Campaign; Issues Cease and Desist Letters to Numerous Sites Including YouTube Via Legal Counsel
Via its legal counsel, Deacons, High West Capital Partners responded to a malicious campaign intended to damage the firm’s reputation globally, via defamatory ‘scam’ and ‘fraud’ tagged articles and videos posted on various news, social media, forums, and industry websites including Twitter, Facebook, TrustPilot, TechCrunch, Patch, Quora and YouTube, the world’s largest video repository. Employing common tactics used in extortion and cat-fishing scams, malware and hacking campaigns, the perpetrators employ common Search Engine Optimization techniques to hijack an organization’s search result rankings, drawing potential customers away from the official High West Capital Partners website, towards fake articles libeling and defaming the organization and its employees. (See previous press release.)
High West Capital Partners vigorously rejects any of the claims in any of said sites, articles, videos, forum posts, blog comments, social media posts and tweets, etc. All of these complaints are unsubstantiated, no clear details nor accusations are presented, and appear to be created by fake user accounts created explicitly for the purposes of defaming High West and its individual employees. Authorities and agencies in multiple countries have been alerted to these nefarious actions, the location of fictitious information and the offending properties have been contacted by legal counsel to immediately remove the slanderous posts and content.
Below is an example of one these demands to remove the defamatory content, in this case, for a Techkrest article that echoes the same bogus claims and SEO keywords for ranking high in search results for our company name:Letter to Techkrest from Deacons dated 8/31/2020
High West Capital Partners intends to fully clear its name and preserve its valued and unsullied reputation and bring all local and international laws and statutes to bear against its attackers.
