    Example:
    My post (April 28, 2008)
    http://app2us.com/blog/job-search/17-months-opt-extension-29-months-opt-for-stem-fields/
    The copied one: (May 9, 2008)
    http://www.hamropalo.com/education/17-months-opt-extension-29-months-opt-for-stem-fields.html

    They even copied "What it means to you the app2us.com user?"

    I found my 10 posts are copied word to word, comma, space everything.

    Fellow dp users, please give me suggestions on how to tackle this.
    Thanks for your time.

    NOTE: One suggestion I got is to complain to the registrar company. In this case the registering company is www.cyberlink.com.np Both the offending site hamropalo and the registrar company are owned by the same gentleman (I mean gentle theif) Pramendra. Neither site has any working contact detail.

    I hate it when people do that. Sorry I don't have much advice here, but just wanted to wish you good luck in tracking down the guy.

    The gentlethief / gentleman, is Mr. pramendra k gupta (pramendra@gmail.com)
    has left no contact details on the offending website.
    Even the numbers on who.is do not work!

    Apparently this guy / his service is linked to some wire transfer scam.

    hamropalo is Citizen journalist site like topix,dig and other one, as soon as we see the note of such copy , we suspend and then removed it, well now we are investigation where app2us have copied or modified any contents.

    reguading wiretransfer , vip-sales scam is one of the popular scam over internet as any one can click to google link
    http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=vip-sales.com+scam&btnG=Search

    they said to host their site , but as soon as i did , server get down , i got mail from verisign saying about vip-sales scam , so i remove to weak up the server , since vip-sales are team of scam people , they have never paid any wire or any kind of payment. they got me via getafreelancer.com, where people use escrow then making payment , payment release after job done and 12 days at least.

    Here i have clear the stand , i think app2us is making fool to its visitor , and want to have just a back link of digitalpoint , since app2us is poor in seo, so this is just a trick of getting back links , nothing else then that.....
    its shame app2us.com a poor sites , do student trafficking business then running a site

    Well,
    It is a fact that 13 articles from our blog were copied word to word by hamropalo.com
    After requesting them, nothing happened.
    They finally took notice after our strong protest on this thread. hats off to digital point forum.

    Now they come back and accuse us of trying to get link etc etc, so here is a comparative analysis:

    app2us.com/blog
    -----------------
    Alexa Ranking 182,951
    US Ranking 55,271
    Google PageRank 4

    hamropalo
    ----------
    Alexa Ranking 610,279
    US Ranking 237,879
    Google PageRank 3

    After repeated request, they have not removed this particular article till now,
    http://hamropalo.com/education/phone-interviews-for-mba-admissions.html (copy pasted on 20 May)

    My original article:
    http://app2us.com/blog/mba/phone-interviews-for-mba-admissions/ (posted on 17 May)

    The point is you cannot copy content of someone else even if they are highly ranked or poor SEO or whatever.

    Dear DP Admin,
    Every word I posted on this thread is backed by facts. Even if they have now removed our 11 artcles from their site, I have detailed screenshots.
    I can forward you the entire email thread between us and Hamropalo. They have apologized for copying, agreed to remove copied articles and assured not to repeat the mistake in future.

    Now this guy is coming back and making baseless remarks agains me. Please take appropriate action.

    Regards,
    app2us.com

    I don't really understand what you are saying, are you saying that app2us copied your contents instead of the other way round?

    app2us had provided the contents links 17 May versus yours on 20 May, I think that speaks for itself unless you have better evidence?

    Hamropalo,
    Fisrt of all, Thank you for removing our copied articles.
    If you remove the remaining 2 copied articles from your site, we will withdraw our complain from google and from this forum.

    Instead of removing copied content there is no use writing negative things about our site. We naver copied your articles.

    I congratulate you on your decision on posting 100 good posts in the future, that is a good and positive decision.

    Hope this helps,
    app2us.com

    Do post any allegations of their scam and abuse and also their student trafficking. I guess a lot of us here will be interested in the proof to support your allegations especially student trafficking.
