You are confused.

>>> We're sponsored LIR for both companies, I sent several emails to Level3 noc, made several calls but they still announce these ranges.

> IPs are announced by Level3... I respect this company but looks like Level3 is scammed and currently announce without necessary permissions.

You will need more than a baseless accusation to make others change.  Especially after you have shown ignorance of some basic facts on how networks announce & accept prefixes.
