..Rip-off Report Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation & Customer Satisfaction Program, ..A program that benefits the consumer, which assures their complete satisfaction and confidence when doing business with a member business

As a matter of policy, when Rip-off Report is retained by a company to mount an independent investigation and to publish our findings, we examine the truthfulness of the consumer complaints using every bit of information at our disposal. Our process is systematic and highly effective because: 1) It takes place at the consumer level and 2) the company or individual in our Corporate Advocacy Program must commit to 'doing whatever it takes to make things right with their customers.' By working closely with the company or individual, Rip-off Report can track the footprints left behind when their promised level of customer service is actually followed by the solid ground of real behavior. Only then do we publish our findings.

Rip-off Report cannot ever guarantee any product or service, but we can only report what we find, in order to help you get a better understanding of the company or individual we are investigating. That having been said, the conclusion Rip-off Report came to after our investigation, to the best of our knowledge, is that this company is a reputable firm, offering products and services of real value.


By Ed Magedson - Founder, Rip-off Report

EEquities First approached Rip-Off Report last month with the express purpose of resolving an issue posted on Rip-off Report. EFH noticed that there was one complaint posted about their firm that was filed by an individual who was not their client. EFH has always held the position that they would go to any extent to deal with client complaints and to bring them to a satisfactory conclusion. After much research they determined that the complaint was filed by a competitor who was trying to gain an unfair business advantage. After a recent mailing to the one person who filed a Rip-off Report, it became apparent that Equities First Holdings is correct in their determination. They also have a sincere commitment to remedy any and all client concerns and/or misconceptions. Company executives stated to Rip-off Report that EFH has now dedicated a portion of their customer service team to work exclusively on making improvements in the client satisfaction area. These changes were implemented as a direct result of feedback they received from Rip-off Report.


Equities First Holdings is a full service, private, non purpose lender that specializes in securities based loans to individuals or businesses in need of prompt funding.

Whenever misunderstandings develop or there is a situation where a client is in need of extraordinary help, EFH has made it a policy to do whatever is necessary to remedy the situation. EFH has put in place a quality control professional with the objective of maximizing client satisfaction. The feedback received from the Rip-off Report has served as a catalyst for many of the changes implemented.

This was made possible by a completely honest approach to corporate introspection and a commitment to taking good care of their customers.

Equities First Holdings executives understand that the only way to grow as a company is by first recognizing their weaknesses and then committing the resources necessary to fix the problems those weaknesses created. An Equities First executive stated, "We know that all businesses make mistakes, but I can assure you that we are 100% committed to resolving any issues that arise and creating value for our clients".

In spite of all such situations, Rip-off Report is confident you have a company that is ready to serve those who need more assistance and is willing to make things right if they seem to have fallen apart.

As a part of the Corporate Advocacy Program - Rip-off Report sent an email to every client (one person) who filed a Report on Equities First Holdings and I would now like to share the results with you.

Whenever Rip-off Report does a mailing for a company with many complaints, the majority of clients usually tell us, that they appreciated our efforts and most customers ask if they could remove the Report they filed and we always explain that unfortunately, it was not possible. It is Rip-off Report's philosophy that it is much more beneficial for the consumer to see how a company like Equities First takes care of their mistakes. No company is without its share of problems, however, there are many companies who continually sweep those problems under the rug and never achieve the growth that other companies such as Equities First Holdings enjoys.

Rip-off Report feels Equities First Holdings has learned from the one person who complained... and they even seemed to be thankful..

Equities First Holdings, LLC shows leadership by joining the Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation and Customer Satisfaction Program.

Keep in mind, Equities First Holdings has worked with many clients over time. What really is amazing that despite Rip-off Report appearing at the top of most search engines, one would think if there was a real problem with Equities First Holdings, there would be many complaints listed on Rip-off Report. Equities First Holdings complaint ratio is a fraction of a percent of their overall clients. Rip-off Report knows that this is significantly below the industry standard for the clientele that they work with. From our perspective, it is quite unusual for a company who has had so few complaints request on their own to be a part of the Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation and Customer Satisfaction Program. Equities First provides a leadership model for other companies that care about their clients to follow.
