Hi I am an owner of an Adult Talent Agency in Southern California. I have a question. I have found that one of our competitors has now started a review site called www.stripreport.com. This company has multiple websites in the industry that I am in. This review site is there for all of our potential new customers searching for entertainers daily on the web. They have given their company; 5 stars, A Ratings, posting great reviews for their company and their big thing is they are licensed, they have a business address and all their entertainers have been verified.
They have listed most SoCal companies on their website with fake bad reviews. For instance my company shows; 1 Star, F Rating, saying my website contains pirated images, photos, and/or content, we dont have a business license, we done have a business location and we dont do checks on our entertainers. [continued below]....
..... This is all false and all of the entertainers that we have working for us, we have permission to use their photos and are 18+. We have our license to do business and pay our taxes.
When trying to contact this company you are really left with nothing. I have been unable to, there is no phone number listed on www.stripreport.com you can only send a comment to them and they dont respond back. They also never called my company to verify us. They took it upon themselves to make up what they wanted to make themselves look better so they get the bookings. I have sent in my info to be verified but still nothing has changed. I am upset because my company works hard, we have great dancers working for us, we dont have bad reviews and we try to be one of the best in this business. We are not here to do shady business.
Now for my question is there a Fair-trade law or something that would make this illegal for a company to make a review site on an industry they are already in, only to better their comapny and to put false information toward other companies to run them out of business? Can we also get them for libel?
I just found all this out today by another company who called me. We dont know what we should do and if we should start a class-action against the damages they have/will due to our business. All the companies listed on this site wish for this to be taken down or at least run fairly.
