Apparently a spammer has gone on a personal vendetta against me and started posting comment spam in my name and linking to my website(s) on various WP-powered blogs. Given the nature of my business, this is incredibly detrimental to my reputation, and I plan to pursue it and prosecute to the fullest extent of the law.
But I need evidence. If you have a comment in my name (Scott Allen) or my wife's name (Jayne), probably including our phone number (512-215-9720) linking to either http://TheVirtualHandshake.com or http://Entrepreneurs.About.com since March 1, please send me:
1. URL at which it occurred
2. IP address associated with the comment
3. A list of any other comments posted from the same IP address
I've already turned this over to the FBI and About.com's legal department, but those will be slow processes. I need help gathering this evidence ASAP, and will be trying to get the word out over the weekend to counter the negative publicity of the bogus comment spam.
Any help/suggestions appreciated,
