Have you ever ‘Googled’ yourself and found something online that you wished would just go away? Or maybe you are being haunted by a less than favorable photo, comment or story that someone posted on a website? It can be tough work cleaning up your act online but now there’s someone coming to your rescue: ReputationDefender.
For a monthly fee of as low as $9.95 per month, the people at ReputationDefender will dig up all the derogatory, slanderous or libelous information about you on the Internet and create an online report that is separated into several categories, including social networking sites, news groups, reviews and blogs. If you see something you don’t like, for an extra fee ReputationDefender will do the dirty work for you to have it removed. It’s as simple as that!
ReputationDefender debuted in fall 2006 and was created by a 28-year-old Harvard Law School graduate. It might be useful to people applying to jobs or schools, concerned parents, public figures, business owners or anyone else who is concerned about his/her online reputation. The site expedited the removal of information for a musician who was accused on MySpace of being a thief and is helping remove content for a business owner who was the victim of an online smear campaign (the business owner won an $11.3 million defamation lawsuit against the author of the original postings).
