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.ALL COMPANIES GET COMPLAINTS, BUT HOW THE COMPANY HANDLES THOSE COMPLAINTS, SEPARATES GOOD BUSINESSES FROM BAD BUSINESSES.
By Ed Magedson - Founder, Rip-off ReportA
merican Business Systems approached Rip-Off Report last month with the express purpose of resolving some issues posted on Rip-off Report. American Business Systems noticed that there were five complaints posted about their firm, a few that were filed by individuals who were never licensees; meaning, they had never purchased the business or gone through any of the training offered. American Business Systems 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; although making amends with someone who was never a customer to begin with is a challenge. After a recent mailing to everyone who filed a Rip-off Report, it became apparent that American Business Systems is correct in their determination.This person (or persons) has tried to "expose" American Business Systems and the fact they they have partnered with 3rd party vendors for some services made available to licensees and that there are costs/fees for using them. This is not something that American Business Systems hides from prospective licensees, and in-fact they provide full disclosure of these fees through the sales process and a downloadable PDF document. In most cases, the information provided in the posted reports regarding fees/vendors has been false. They also have a sincere commitment to remedy any and all client concerns and/or misconceptions. Company executives stated to Rip-off Report that American Business Systems has now dedicated members 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.American Business Systems CONTINUES TO CLARIFY WHO THEY ARE AND WHAT THEY CAN DO FOR CLIENTS

This is verifiable through references provided to anyone who goes through our due diligence process. That being said, this business is never promoted as a "get rich quick" business.

As a part of the Corporate Advocacy Program - Rip-off Report sent an email to every client who filed a Report on American Business Systems and I would now like to share the results with you.
A few of the reports that were filed were never clients if ABS. The clients stated that they appreciated our efforts and related how they had already been taken care of in a satisfactory manner. As usual, the customers asked if they could remove the Report they filed and we explained 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 American Business Systems 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 American Business Systems enjoys.
Rip-off Report feels American Business Systems has learned from all those who have complained... and they even seemed to be thankful for those who have brought problems to their attention.American Business Systems shows leadership by joining the Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation and Customer Satisfaction Program.
Keep in mind, American Business Systems has worked with many clients over time. What really is amazing that despite Rip-off Report appearing at the top of most search engines, their complaint ratio is a fraction of a percent of their overall clients. If there was a real problem with ABS, because of Rip-off Reports high ranking on search engines, we would think there would be many more complaints about the company.. 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. American Business Systems provides a leadership model for other companies that care about their clients to follow.ABOUT THE CORPORATE ADVOCACY PROGRAM
