Before you submit your Ripoff Report (at the end) you will be able to check a box so that you can be contacted in the event of one of the following:

  1. Another victim may want to compare notes offline. Periodically we receive communications from other consumers, just like you, who have been ripped off by the same person that was complained about in a Report. Sometimes these people want to reach out to authors in order to discuss their similar problem so maybe you can work together.

  2. A lawyer might want to help you. We receive communications from lawyers who are either representing a victim or are otherwise considering a class action case against people or businesses that are complained about on our website. They often want us to either send them your information or otherwise pass along their contact information to you so that you can decide if you are interested in contacting them. Who knows, maybe they will be able to help you too.

  3. A TV news station, magazine, newspaper or other media may want to reach out to you in order to run a story about a situation that you have complained about.

  4. A government agency might be looking into the situation that you complained about. Ripoff Report constantly receives information requests from different government agencies who are looking into situations that have been complained about on Ripoff Report. Ripoff Report has, since inception, helped out just about every government agency there is with their investigations to help consumers/victims of bad deeds. Ripoff Report is responsible for hundreds if not thousands of convictions by law enforcement.

  5. There may be a matter that pertains to your first amendment rights to free speech! Ripoff Report is not immune to the legal process and sometimes your content could be flagged for some other reason. If there is ever an issue relating to your posting, and to the extent it is not prohibited by law, we may want to reach out to you about whatever situation might be going on.

The choice is yours, of course, on whether or not you want to check the box at the end, however, we highly recommend that you do and that you make sure to give us a good email address, and keep it current, for these kinds of purposes. As always, Ripoff Report strives to keep your information confidential and will not just hand it over to anyone who asks. What we are talking about here are more particular instances that you may WANT to be able to be contacted for.
