Hi there


Thai Massage Leicester Limited

209 Forest Road



LE19 3EP

Tel. 0116 286 7910

Mob. 07977 011604,-116...


We are the official owners in the UK of the business name “Thai Massage Leicester” but another business that has always been called “Nin SuWan” and even the front of their shop says only “Nin SuWan” which can be verified by pictures publicly available on Google, but they have suddenly started calling their business “Thai Massage Leicester Nin SuWan” which is effectively hijacking our business name and thereby the search term and most likely customers.

We have no problem with a little healthy competition, however this particular business is not only offering professional massage services, they also offer illegal adult services that we do not want our business name associated with in any way, this can be confirmed via their reviews on PunterNet etc.

This is not the first time this business has caused us issues, they have also called our business and tried to talk to our therapists a few times and tried to poach them, they have also made countless false bookings using our online forms on our website and via the telephone, we found this out by tracing the numbers and email addresses that were given on the booking and found them to be dormant and obvious forgeries, in that the names were kind of ridiculous and further to this are the names on their reviews on Google, so clearly they have been boosting their reviews falsely too.

Can you please how we can stop these people calling their business on Google by our name and hijacking our customers, because as per the attached picture you can see that we Officially own that business name.
