    Even the domain name is similar except for the hyphen and .info. Seems that person has registered only a week before. Hosted at hostgator. Maybe you could call hostgator and point them to this?

      One of my affiliates saw it on ezinearticles as the author box of one of the writer. The funny thing is not only is the sales page copied...But my ebook is being sold on paypal by his name.

    Hi, if you can prove ownership of the product i would definitely get in touch with the host of the offending site, even paypal. get it yanked before it has a detrimental effect on your business.
    This sucks

    I'd play with him a little. I mean, ask him question on the product. And, finally:

    Hey Tom,
    I found someone selling the exact same product here:

    Pull Your Ex Back | Get your ex back | Stop a Breakup

    What's the deal?
    Are they ripping you off? You might wanna report that...
    If you don't wanna, I'd do it for you. :p

    Sumit.

    PS. I hope you've reported him to PayPal.

    Interestingly, the person is also cheap. They could have ripped you off with a ".com" but took the inexpensive road of the ".info".

    Thus far they don't seem to have, organically, hit the first three pages of Google.

    Isn't it nice to see how much all of the "sharing sites" and "torrent people" like you?

    Must make you feel like the most popular kid on the block...

      Headline reads

      Read this page IMMEDIATELY... It could be gone in the next few hours! Why? Because this page contains almost "ILLEGAL"......

      He's right about some of that. It could be gone in the next few hours.

      You're definitely not in his target market :p

      @Ryanman: Man, that sucks big time. Contact HostGator
      since they have live support and get them to help you
      on this!

      By the way, his email is WIDE OPEN when you click on his
      add to cart button.

        All kidding aside - you need to target his paypal account, contact Ezine support, and Hostgator ...

        Looks like an amateur, so those actions should be effective.

        Good luck!

          Ryanman sorry about your problems here and hope you resolve this situation soon.

          But I can't get the thought of a new concept website : www.parkyourexhere.com out of my mind and you can charge a monthly fee. Should be very profitable

            If the guy is in the US, contact a local attorney first. Otherwise, some possible actions ...

            Print and copy all the pages and your information about the theft and send copies to counsel for eBay (owns PayPal), the web host, and the domain register. Might as well send a copy to Google regarding the guy's gmail account.

            Include a take-down request to each company.

            Make sure you tell PayPal that you are also making a claim for all income that website has received.

            When making copies, I recommend a regular 'Print' of the web page plus a print of the source code - AND if you have Acrobat (not the free reader) making time-stamped pdf using the web capture feature.

    Wow, I could not believe that!

    He has literally just downloaded your entire page and reposted it.

    Must be a customer given how cheap he is with the domain name I would look for someone who asked for a refund :O

    On the bright side, you've got the unhyphenated .com url and he's got a hyphenated .info...... he'll need all the luck in the world ranking above an unhyphenated .com!! LOL

    I def understand your frustration. As some other people have suggested, try a take down request with the host due to breach of copyright!! That should sort it out!!

    That's unbelievable. Some people out there will do anything for a buck.

    As previously mentioned, you can see an email address when you click on the buy now button so maybe you can contact Paypal and point this out to them.

    This sort of thing is exactly why I recommend selling in a print
    or multimedia format - if you had watermarked videos incorporated
    into your product for instance, which notify buyers that
    if they not bought through your URL they are supporting
    criminals - who may be using their ill-gotten gains in
    fiendish ways.

    You get what you deserve when you publish ebooks -
    if your product is any good or marketable people will
    rip it off and resell it.

    I'm not saying you deserve to have your work stolen,
    but your chosen method of marketing and delivery are
    basically asking for it. It's a price you pay for doing
    download publishing and should be figured into your
    cost of doing business, like the way some bartenders skim
    registers and some delivery guys steel liquor.

    Same thing happened to me except the seller used webs.com and some of the sites are still up till this day. Webs.com doesn't seem to be a fast-responder to these sorts of actions.

    Kind of eggs me off because the payment processor used by the seller is a non-standard one (Liberty Reserve) so I get a bunch of people e-mailing me a bunch of time saying they haven't gotten the product and they bought from XYZ (the scam website).

    I normally sell the product for $27.00, these scammers are selling it for $3.95 so what I offer to these people that e-mail me is send me the other $23.00 via Liberty Reserve and I'll send them the real product.

    At least I've picked up a few extra sales this way, but still it's illegal and I wish it would stop!

    The rules do not allow anyone to post his name or FULL e-mail address.

    Hope this joker gets shut down real soon.

    Wonder if there is any way to find out what his ISP is?

    Anyway, this is not his FULL e-mail address. I have replaced part of it with a ? to stick to the rules. You will have to read between the lines.

    Here is the link to the Whois page for the domain.

    http://www.networksolutions.com/whoi...ur-exback.info

    Domain was purchased through GoDaddy, maybe they can do something, too.

    All the best,
