Alert: My business name is being used without permission by a fraudulent website

Alert

The website vancouverctv dot com is using my business name without my permission (and until yesterday morning, knowlegdge), along with some random and thankfully incoherent excerpts taken from my website. Thanks to Google Alerts I was alerted immediately about this webpage. My business name, which is used on the aforementioned site without my permission, has been and is registered in the State of California, United States of America, since 2010. Finally, the illegal use of copyrighted excerpts from my website violate the U.S. Digital Millennium Copyright Act.

On the same page (see screenshots below), highly unethical academic paper writing services are advertised, that is, a website is advertised, where students can pay for somebody else to write their term papers or other homework for them. This practice is not only unethical, it also constitutes fraud. I have absolutely nothing to do with these academic paper writing services or that website.

I am in the process of consulting with a lawyer on how to proceed in terms of legal action against the aforementioned fraudulent website, unless they immediately remove my business name.
