#1 REBUTTAL Owner of company

$30,000 Reward for information leading to the successful prosecution of the author of this fictitious post

AUTHOR: Tahoe Admin - (United States of America)

As a representative of the company libeled and maligned in this report, I do hereby notify all who read this post that the company libeled in the post to which this post rebuts will pay a $30,000 (thirty thousand U.S. Dollars) reward to the individual who provides positive information leading to the identification, subsequent arrest and conviction of the individual or entity responsible for posting this fake report on this website. 
  
The individual responsible for these postings against the named company is obviously too ignorant to know he has committed 2 felonies... 1) Felony Computer Hacking, and 2) Extortion.  

1) Felony computer hacking charges may be brought against one who violates the terms of use of a website by assuming a false identity and stating lies about an individual or entity that does great harm.  

2) Felony charges of Extortion may be brought against one who publishes or connives at publishing any libel designed to induce another to take steps that would result in a benefit to the party committing the crime of extortion.  

In this case, our firm was threatened to not allow the sales people and drivers of a competing company to work for our firm... and when we ignored their demands, they committed the crime of writing these lies on this site, and posting them in such a way with headers containing our company name resulting in a high rank in Search Engine Results, in an attempt to harm our sales.  Have they been successful in harming our sales?  Yes they have.  Will they be prosecuted to the maximum extent to the law?  Yes they will.  

If you have information that would assist in identifying the perpetrators, Please email our company at [email protected]   Those who have already come forward with positive identification of the perpetrators, and those who have already contacted us in the past are invited to contact us again and make their appointment for a deposition.   In the event multiple individual's information and testimony is considered crucial in identifying and convicting the perpetrators, the $30,000 reward will be split based on the proportionate weight of the importance of the information provided in gaining a conviction, along with the witnesses' perceived credibility as a witness.  The order in which testimony was received will also be utilized in determining the split of the reward, so act today and write to [email protected], and share your key testimony today!

#3 UPDATE Employee

Tahoe Industries Responds to this Fictitious Report

AUTHOR: TI Senior Management - (U.S.A.)

Readers of this report should understand the following items:

1) Ripoffreport.com or its owners would not be found liable for false content here, unlike a newspaper or magazine. Only the anonymous poster could be sued for libel & slander, if it were possible to force ripoffreport.com to yield his identity.

2) This report remains unverified unless our company or the individuals libeled & slandered therein pay outlandish fees to join the ripoffreport "corporate advocacy program", which even then will not have these lies removed.

3) The owner of this site makes it impossible to get justice for people libeled & slandered herein by hiding, as clearly spelled out in the following article:

http://www.phoenixnewtimes.com/2007-02-01/news/the-real-rip-off-report/

If we could track the site owner down to serve him a discovery motion to provide the necessary documentation for our case against libelous author of this report, we could at least have the satisfaction of suing this person into oblivion. Absent that
opportunity, our only justice will be to file this rebuttal, and leave the punishment this person so richly deserves to the Lord above, who certainly knows best how to accomplish that endeavor.

Now to deal with the lies, slander & libel contained in the report. Members of our firm know with certainty who is behind this, and he is a competitor to our firm that sells similar equipment. He had one of his hired help post these reports as retribution, as he has lost sales and profits during the past couple of months to our firm due to our
superior products, pricing, service, support, distribution methods and warranty.

This report's lies are rebutted as follows:

1) The company named West Coast Equipment has never sold ANY of our products. WCE was wound down when the principals of WCE left a competitor to join our firm. The libelous author did not know WCE was disbanded, and assumed they continued under this same name when the principals began selling Tahoe Industries Equipment.

2) No equipment has ever been sold by any of our dealers in the city of St George, UT.

3) No Tahoe Industries Distributor or dealer has any sales records of a Don Levign purchasing equipment anywhere in the United States.

4) No public records or phone listings exist for a Don Levign in St. George, UT.

5) Our Service Department & Technical Support Personnel have no records of anyone named Don Levign writing or calling in for support or a warranty authorization request. Our toll free number is plastered all over our equipment and also on printed literature which a customer receives when purchasing equipment. Had a person named Don Levign called in with any problem with his equipment within a reasonable period of time from purchase, Tahoe Industries would have promptly refunded the customer's money, replaced the equipment, or directed the customer to the nearest service center for warranty repair.

6) Tahoe Industries, Inc. has sold several thousand of these diesel generators during the past 2 years, and never has a single one "threw a rod thru block". I don't think that's even possible with a single cylinder compression ignition diesel engine. If a customer has a problem with one of our engines, we promptly replace it or have it
rebuilt, as any engine problem is covered under warranty as long as the warranty conditions are met. These engines are tested and approved by the U.S. EPA, and complies with the EPA's own mininimum required hours of average life expectancy before a rebuild may be suggested or necessary.

7) 40% of the products are manufactured in the United States at our plant in Southern California, and 40% are powered by Honda Engines made in Thailand or Japan. Thus, the statement that our dealers are "selling cheap Chinese Junk" is slanderous, misleading & libelous.

This libelous competitor saw fit to abuse and exploit this website to air his smear campaign libeling & slandering Tahoe Industries, Inc. and Kevin Rose (formerly operating under West Coast Equipment). This clearly violates the terms of use that this website explicitly spells out to posters of reports, and the parties falsely accused in this report as well as the site owners have clear grounds for a lawsuit against the perpetrator. When a business competitor poses as a disgruntled customer to inflict damage on its rival, he should be punished and brought to justice. This individual is a simpleton but very well heeled, and if and when the opportunity presents itself, we
will indeed sue him into oblivion, as he has left his fingerprints all over his slanderous work here. But he may, however, have a very bright future as a contestant on "America's Dumbest Criminals."
