CareStory Receives Cease and Desist
This is a follow up to the previous post.
CareStory was warned by Lloyd Korn to shut down via their forums. The CareStory staff deleted the message and banned user “lulz123″ as a “Lloyd Korn impersonator.” If you’ve been following the previous post on this issue, you’ve probably seen at least 30 hate comments in which CareStory users and staff called us liars. The maturity and trust you have shown us knows no bounds CareStory.
We told you it was legitimate, but you refused to listen to us and heed Mr. Korn’s warning, and instead banned us. Now you have gotten yourselves into deep trouble and may be one of the first MapleStory private servers to be sued by NEXON America.
I would like to take this opportunity to again emphasize that unless stated as alleged or tagged under editorials, our content is 100% legitimate and true. It hurt us to see many viewers call us liars and frauds considering we work extremely hard to bring you the most accurate news. We frown upon those who jump to conclusions and wish NEXON America the best in whatever they choose to do regarding this matter. I hope CareStory gets what they deserve.
Below is a quote from CareStory forums including the Cease and Desist from NEXON America.

“Care Story History and Underground Plans Foiled”
Seems a Bit Childish. And Fake If You ask me So I gave Them a piece of my mind thats been Building up.
*EDIT*I regret To Inform you It was All True What was Sent I have recieved a E-mail Myself From Lloyd Korn not To Long ago. this is what it read:
How stupid must you be to think I would not go after you and your private server site after you fake a shutdown?
Anyway Nomika, let me share with you a dilemma I am having. I have been given the authorization to sue a couple of private server sites. My problem is there are so many to choose from. I narrowed down the selection to those private servers who were dumb enough to ignore my demand to shut down and/or think they can go underground. It looks like CareStory is now at the top of my list.
So Nomika, I’m giving you an offer that is only good for 24 hours. Shut down carestory.net and care-elite.net as soon as you get this e-mail and we won’t go after you. By my count you already owe Nexon at least $200,000 in liquidated damages. That does not include the damages we will recover from you at trial for all the copyright and trademark infringement you have perpetuated against MapleStory (think $100,000 per infringement according to the DMCA statutes). You (or should I say your parents) will have to hire an attorney which will no doubt be extremely expensive. I’m sure your parents will be very thrilled to know after they have spent a fortune to try and defend you that all this could have been avoided if you only followed the rules!
I have your personal information and am receiving more from all those people who hate you and hate your site (and there are many) who want to see you get shut down. If I don’t hear from you ASAP that you have shut down carestory.net, its server and care-elite.net, you will give us no choice but to take action against you, your buddy Makey and everyone else involved in carestory.net. You will also in that e-mail promise me that you will not to open carestory.net up again or own or operate any other forms of MapleStory private servers. In addition, you will not sell or give the contents of your server to anyone else.
Should you have any questions, I strongly suggest you contact me. Also, if you still think this letter is a fake, check its IP .
By the way, that was me that posted on your forums today. I see you banned me for being a Lloyd Korn impersonator. That’s okay, I have another dozen or so id’s and passwords to your forum. You can remain in denial all you want, but trust me, it was me!
