Event Details: Did you notice that your Google Places account was mysteriously deleted recently by a user named “Anonymous?”
Well our company listing was also deleted on March 24th along with most of the DJ companies in Toronto.
This is what happened.
Our Google places listing was flagged as a fake listing with a fake
address by the user “Anonymous”. This was done to dozens of other DJ
companies in Toronto as well. Based on this flagging, a Google trusted
reviewer without verifying details have deleted most of the listings
thus almost 80% all listings disappeared from Google places..
Now do you want to know who was behind this deliberate unethical and illegal act…? Also do you want to know how we found out?
Since our listing and most listings were deleted our web consulting
company did an analysis of all the companies that were not deleted and
their online activity and came with a shortlist of 02 companies. At this
point there was no confirmation. However, one of the companies was
Surround Sound DJ.
Based on this information we used the same strategy that the Original
“Anonymous” user used and “Flagged” their listing for deletion. Once we
did this, within several hours Surround Sound DJ tried to revert and
undo the deletion using the Google user name “Surround”. However, we
repeated the flagging to Google. At this point Baruch Labunski the
owner of Surround Sound DJ panicked and accidently used the original
username “Anonymous” and wrote a personal request to Google to stop us
from deleting his listing.
Now we know as a fact that the original deletion was indeed done by Surround Sound’s Baruch Labunski and his SEO company rankhigh.ca
and we have proof.
You can check this by yourself.

6. Click the user “Anonymous”

Now Search for Surround Sound DJ
1. Click History
2. Now you can see Amanda Lanskibu & Anonymous User (The two names we used to Flag the Surround Sound DJ Listing)
3. Scroll Down
4. Now you will see some comments made by both Surround Sound and “Anonymous”
5. Check the comments
6. Click on the Anonymous user
Now you will know that the same user who deleted most DJ companies in
Toronto is the same user who has made a personal appeal / comments
begging Google not to delete the Surround sound DJ Listing: Their exact
words “Please Remove this person Amanda Lanskibu she is trying to remove
a map I won for over 5 Years please stop this person”
Now what are you going to do about the company who tied to illegally and unethically delete your listing in Google?
