There is a new scam out there affecting small business.. potentially including piano tuners and music stores. A false bad review is posted online. Then, a company contacts you and offers to restore your reputation for $500.

Hi Jerry smile

I do a search on my name about every month or so... you never know.

But someone actually using the net to shake down legitimate private businesses that have earned their good names... how awful!

I hope the perps are charged with extortion.
