Here's YET ANOTHER example of content he's stolen:
vs. the original content:

For those who haven't dropped by: there are allegedly three sites in SEWizard's portfolio. Problem is, two of them belong to the same guy. At least, he's reasonably upfront on these sites about their "relationship" with his "company".
The third (Myerson's Jewelry Resellers) doesn't appear to exist. I found a "Myerson's Ltd." that seems to have something to do with the jewelry trade, but they don't have a website that I could find in a quick search of Google and MSN. I suspect they really don't, because the screenshot that's on the portfolio page is actually the home page of a Toronto "internet communications" company. The only legible text on the screen shot is the word "webfeat", which is the name of the Toronto company... something of a dead giveaway, since even in the squished-up screenshot it's clear the site doesn't have anything to do with a company called Myerson's or with selling jewelry. And "webfeat" is a fairly simple term to search on...
You know, I'm actually impressed. I don't think I've witnessed plagarism on such a grand scale in ages. Just think what this dude could have accomplished had he channeled all this energy into actually creating original content and doing some real marketing to real potential clients...
It just occurred to me: this guy's probably been getting the best site traffic stats of his life these past few hours, what with all of us checking him out...

Torka, you could be right, but I didn't get that impression from the roommate who answered the phone. He didn't sound like he was living in a climate controlled data center.
Well of course not! He was answering from the phone in the living room. The data center is in the back bedroom.

Straight up stolen from:
I talked to a guy at Royal Cyber earlier today. He said he's talked to the dude in Toronto before but the guy wouldn't remove the content. Royal Cyber was also the source of one of the Toronto dude's stolen templates.

(Of course, here I am on the east coast where it's an hour later than where you are... do we have a smiley with a pot and a kettle? )
I'm going to sleep now. And this time, I mean it!

That's not 'cool' at all.

Torka, I sleep when I'm tired, eat when I'm hungry, yadda yadda. It's 2:23 and I'm running out of steam. Have a good night.
Sounds like you've said the same thing before to your mom....

I'm guessing that if he ever did get any SEO client, he must have one of those submit to 50 million search engine companies that he just outsources it to.
Torka's surely right that this is the most traffic he's seen EVER!
Good work, Ed, on all of this. You'll be a good detective when you grow up!

So, it's safe to say, he probably didn't actually know much about SEO. Because if he did, he'd've had a better site.
It boggles my mind.

This is where the "ethical SEO" thread becomes an issue again!
Posted 02 October 2003 - 11:39 AM
I've been sitting here going: poor Jill and Ed, hope that guy gets what's coming to him.
Then, on a whim, I remember the guy is Canadian and that's MY beat. So I type in a few searches on my keywords.
He's right there on the first page with me! Under me, yes, but that's not the point. Unbelievable.
Ok, time to put down the water pistols and bring out the gattling cannon. I've made no bones about my attitude about spammers interfering with my clients serps, you better believe I have the same attitude towards mine!
Excuse me, I'm about to mcanerinize this guy....

After his threat to me, I'm preferring to sit by the sidelines and let you big strong men handle this...
Let you be his life's mission to get back at...
