There are no bad backlinks. I bought it from a webmaster who has a network of similar sites and 90% of its links are from that network. I should have known better but it survived panda and everything else so I figured it was a good bet. I am not giving up on it yet though.
What really irks me is one of my clients were hit. This is the first time I have a client that I received that I did not receive to recover them and they have received a penalty on my watch.
They do not even rank for their own brand name. The only thing I can think of is this is a global brand and they have a different site for each country, UK and canada sites still rank well but the american one was hit really bad. Content is unique but kind of similar to the other versions...There really isnt too much changing we can do with the content....
