Dear sir
After a week from starting my social media platform, a competitor has stolen our company name Syrian Cotton and opened an unauthorized Instagram platform to sell the same products. After that, he stole from our website and Instagram platform 4 contents in a row and shared it on his Instagram platform. As a consequence of reporting this frequent copyright theft, Instagram has closed the Imposter Instagram profile.
Today, the imposter succeed in sabotaging and taking dawn my webshop http://www.syriancotton.nl 
IS THERE ANY LEGAL ACTION THAT I CAN TAKE AGAINST HEM TO MAKE HEM PAY FOR WHAT HE HAS DONE

Dear Moatez,

It is a very upsetting situation. The most common type of attack used to sabotage a website is a DDoS attack. According to article 138b paragraph 1 of the Dutch Penal Law is someone, who intentionally and unlawfully hinders the access to or the use of a computerized work by offering or sending data to it, sentenced with imprisonment of at most two years or a fine of the fourth category.

I advice you to file a police report and contact our legal partner Bergman Juridisch Adviesburea to subpoena the attacker for the damage he has inflicted to your company.
