Read below why a phone number or link was removed from this Report
The reason why have removed links or phone numbers from this report is because people have, in the past, attempted the following, ...all too often.
Posting LINKS & e-mail addresses
Many times links to unknown web sites will cause the Freezing up of your pc and or causing you to get a computer virus, virtually rendering your computer useless. Most of the time, this is the work of the company or individual reported.
Many Government links are no better than BBB and are just a waste of time, giving you false hope. Many government sites (like the BBB) just suck in all information from you the consumer but never make the information available, so consumers will be educated as to what exactly they should be looking out for. On the other hand, many government agencies have and do come to the Rip-off Report for information. We have been assisting many government agencies for some time now, including the FBI and Attorney General offices from around the country..
Now that all these Rip-off Reports are out in the open for everyone to see, in a way, this embarrasses these agencies to now do something when they see so many reports on a company or individual, because they are now out in the open for all to see. Unfortunately, many (not all) Attorney General Office's and government agencies will not move against a rip-off unless there is going to be some sort of publicity on the rip-off. By reporting your experience on the Rip-off Report is the next best thing to getting your story on TV or in a newspaper. Most national TV networks and many local TV stations from all around the country come to the Rip-off Report for information they will not get from the BBB, Attorney Generals office or any other government agency. Rip-off Report has instigated many local and national stories, resulting in help for victims, in one way or another. Most government agencies will never even bother with rip-offs unless it involves $50,000 or more. Now that the government is cutting back even more, this number will even get higher and we can expect even less to get done, by even less people to work on all these rip-offs.
We have also struggled with the following for a long time..
The reason why we delete phone numbers, ..all too often unscrupulous lawyers or individuals posing as lawyers are collecting victims information to only further victimize them. Many times, well-meaning consumers think they are going to collect names and get them to a lawyer who will do something. In every case we have allowed other consumers to do this, nothing has ever came of it. Consumers were under the impression that something will be done to get them help. In every case this did nothing but lead the consumer on, further victimizing them, and some consumers were mad at us. We feel it is our responsibility to check the legitimacy of the lawyer before advertising their service on the Rip-off Report.
We will also not allow lawyers to use this web site for free when they will end up taking a large amount of fees, leaving the victim with very little. There are many competent lawyers out there that know how to get the unscrupulous companies or individual who ripped you off, to get their fees be paid by those who victimized you. Those are the lawyers who can post their numbers after checking with us here at the Rip-off Report.
And many times, in an attempt to get your contact information, consumers will leave an email address; this is just a scam to sell a product or some other service.
..if they have something to sell, they should place an advertisement with Rip-off Report.com so we can further help consumers.
All advertisements are checked out to the best of our ability before allowing them to be placed on the Rip-off Report. WE have turned down many advertisers to date. Advertisers on the Rip-off Report know, they are not immune from a Rip-off Report being filed on them.
