I had a misdemeanor case in 2017, that was dismissed and expunged. There is a website called BailBondSearch who will not remove the information, yet they are still in business. I sent my documents to be taken off of their site but it was a waste of time. They have a fake phone number and address posted. I have contacted the BBB but there is nothing they can do because the company is unreachable. How can I have this removed?
You may want to consider hiring a lawyer to send a Cease and Desist letter. While a cease and desist letter has little legal impact, it is a relatively inexpensive way to put the person on notice that you are not going to let these actions continue and that you are serious about pursuing your legal remedies. It also tells the person that they could get in legal hot water which will cost them a lot of legal fees if nothing else. This will often convince them to stop their evil ways.
You will want to discuss your situation with a lawyer in more detail. Many lawyers on Avvo offer a free phone consultation.

Florida law prohibits a company from charging a fee to remove a mugshot. If that occurred, you may have a statutory claim. Consult with an experienced Internet Attorney to evaluate your options. Sometimes, a letter from an attorney is more effective than contacting the site on your own.
