Have you ever tried to look up your name on the internet? One Massachusetts woman found a shocking and false online post about her. And when she tried to get it taken down, she became a victim of reputation ransom. Hank Philippi Ryan investigates.
A Massachusetts school teacher told 7 Investigates what’s happened to her is already bad enough and she doesn’t want to make it worse, so she wants to remain anonymous.
“It’s truly an injustice. I’m so upset about it,” the teacher said.
It started when she googled her name and she found a terrible complaint online about her!
“I couldn’t believe it. I was shocked,” the teacher said.
An undisclosed author had posted: “She had been harassing them and threatening family members…”
“The complaint isn’t true. I thought this is crazy. I have to get this down,” the teacher said.
