RIPOFF REPORT VIP ARBITRATION

SUMMARY OF ARBITRATOR DECISION


Keybridge Communications, LLC, Complainant

v.

Omar Soliman (aka Richard), Author of Ripoff Report #973782

________________________________________________________________

Complainant has challenged the truthfulness of 10 specific statements posted on ripoffreport.com by the Author of Report #973782, identified as Omar Soliman. The Author did not respond to the Complaint filed by Complainant in the time allowed and therefore is not participating in this Arbitration. In accordance with the Ripoff Report VIP Arbitration Rules (the Rules), the Arbitrator will decide whether each of the 10 statements is an opinion or a statement of fact. If, and only if, the statement is determined to be a statement of fact, the Arbitrator will then go further and decide if, by a preponderance of the evidence, the statement is true or not.

In this case, the Arbitrator has only the evidence submitted by Complainant to consider. The evidence submitted includes: Ripoff Report #973782; the Witness Statement of the Author of Ripoff Report #973782; the Witness Statement of an executive with Keybridge Communications, LLC; Document A entitled Email Exchange; and Document B, entitled Services Agreement.

The Arbitrator was asked to decide whether the preponderance of the evidence submitted establishes that each Statement is true or that it is false. If the statement identified by the Complainant is determined to be an opinion, no determination will be made as to that particular statement because an opinion cannot be determined.

The Arbitrator was further asked to decide whether the preponderance of the evidence submitted establishes whether the Author, was in fact, wrongfully sued. The Complainant denies the accusation of such, and state that the Author was sued to collect a debt. The Complainant has also stated the Author attempted to remove his posting and has apologized profusely for posting something that is untrue. The Complainant further states that the Author supplied a Witness Statement for use in this matter, which was given to the Arbitrator. Accordingly, the Arbitrator determined that certain accusations stated

The Arbitrator determined that certain statements in the challenged Report were false. Therefore, according to the VIP Arbitration Rules, those statements have been redacted.

My company hired Keybridge Communications to write an op-ed to be featured in a print publication. (((Statement REDACTED as false pursuant to Ripoff Report VIP Arbitration))) (((Statement REDACTED as false pursuant to Ripoff Report VIP Arbitration))). After agreeing to the amount a few weeks went by and we receive an email from them with the subject line "BIG HIT!" We come to find that what they qualify as a major publication is the online blog section of forbes...NOT the magazine or any print media but an online article. They also never got a single syndication for us. (((Statement REDACTED as false pursuant to Ripoff Report VIP Arbitration))).
This is not a PR company that you want to do business with. The mere fact that (((Statement REDACTED as false pursuant to Ripoff Report VIP Arbitration))) speaks volumes about their work. (((Statement REDACTED as false pursuant to Ripoff Report VIP Arbitration))), fortunately for them the politicians and lawyers in DC dont know anything about marketing any stupidly pay them for (((Statement REDACTED as false pursuant to Ripoff Report VIP Arbitration))). Save your money and dont work with (((Statement REDACTED as false pursuant to Ripoff Report VIP Arbitration))). (((Statement REDACTED as false pursuant to Ripoff Report VIP Arbitration))).

The Above Accusation Is Simply Not True

AUTHOR: KBC - (United States of America)

The accusation above was posted by Omar Soliman, CEO of College Hunks Hauling Junk. It is factually incorrect, libelous, and a grossly unethical attempt to smear our company in response to a lawsuit filed against him.

Here are the facts:

   1) Omar Soliman never disputed the charge until he posted the above accusation on RipoffReport. In fact, he personally approved -- in writing -- all services delivered. His oped was published in Forbes.com per his approval in writing (see below). He was never charged for a syndication.

   2) Omar Soliman stole from our company, not the other way around. Our company has never received a penny from Omar Soliman or College Hunks Hauling Junk.

   3) In over 10 years of business and over 20,000 projects -- our company has never previously sued a single organization or entity, nor have we ever been sued.

   4) Omar Solimans description of events is simply untrue. Here is the actual email exchange that transpired. Note that we specifically received his approval to pitch to Forbes.com and estimated his odds of a top-5 placement at 10-15%:

Omar,
 
Fantastic! The piece is very strong, so we'll start right at the top -- WSJ, USA Today, NY Times, LA Times, Washington Post. Because the economy peg is so strong, I'd say our chances are very good at these outlets (we'd put them at about 10-15%).

If these newspapers don't accept, we'll move down the list to other top media outlets (Chicago Tribune, San Francisco Chronicle, Boston Globe, Miami Herald, Investor's Business Daily, etc.) and prominent online publications like Forbes, Newsweek, and Reuters.

If this all works for you, just send me a final "green light" and we'll start pitching right away.
