Company A fraudulently using name of another company, lawyer says

Posted by: Jane Friedmann under Advertising claims, Buyer beware, Whistleblower Updated: April 26, 2013 - 1:38 PM

A company that contacted Whistleblower by email to propose a lucrative work-at-home scheme is fraudulently using the name and stock ticker symbol of a legitimate company, according to David Babin, a lawyer for Solera Holdings, Inc.

Whistleblower has posted earlier findings on "Company A" here and here.

Job postings placed on the internet by "Company A" now identified by Whistleblower as ACERQC, also borrow specific phrases from Solera's marketing material, Babin said. ACERQC has "absolutely no affiliation with Solera," he said.

Identical job postings can be found under other company names. One ripoff report commentor's research traced one of those companies to Daytona Beach, Florida.
