"We have removed the inaccurate stat as promised. I am curious to know if you will be contacting the dozens of other companies listing the same home invasion stats.”
One has to go all the way to the bottom of the first page to find a voice of reason. In June of 2011 Home Invasion News (?!!) did the legwork to run down the history of this egregious misinformation.
“This infographic was put into circulation by Interactive Holdings, LLC, a company headquartered in North Carolina that functions as a multifaceted holding company for various Internet, information technology, creative design, and marketing solutions. In other words, a marketing operation whose assignment — in this case — appears to have been driving traffic to local ‘bump resistant certified locksmiths.’”“Since the infographic was created, things have changed a bit at the original website, bumpkeywarning.com. The graphic itself has been taken down, but some of the same misleading statistics still appear. In addition, a notice now appears on the ‘home invasion’ portion of the bumpkeywarning site: Interactive Holdings, LLC, owners of BumpKeyWarning.com make no representation or warranty as to the accuracy or completeness of the information presented in this web site or web sites that are or may be linked to the BumpKeyWarning.com web site now or in the future. Access to and use of all information is at the user’s risk. Looks like the little infographic caused some issues.”
