Rip off Report is a Rip off and Dangerous check out the BBB I tried to post all categories, as they are a company with 51 negative comments on BBB, as they do not research any of the accusations on this site. People can use this to determine if they will use a company, and they are false statements. EDitor’s Comment to this Ripoff Report … No businesses can please 100% of the people 100% of the time

Editorial Comment 11/01/2017: Warning: Sarcasm Alert! We decided to let this post but be sure to read OUR side the story below.


So let's see if they post this.  As we are going to not only seek legal counsel, but also reach out to the various nationwide news shows that this company is the Rip Off.  They post information that is not correct or varified, and very unsafe.

They state that they cannot be touched legally.  Shame on them.  Or shame on YOU Rip Off Reports.  

You are denying the public the truth.  I have read through some of these complaints of various kinds and it shows that anyone with a vindetta can post anything they want...   THis is not Facebook...  Or is it..  Even FB removes things upon request for various reasons. 

YOUR BBB stature sure speaks for itself.  SHAME...


Begin Editorial Comment 11/01/2017:  OUR SIDE OF THE STORY - Ripoff Report strongly believes in the First Amendment, especially when consumers are truthfully warning other consumers about potential frauds, scams, rip-offs or the like by shady individuals or businesses.  Ripoff Report is by consumers, for consumers…and we want to keep it that way!  We too are subject of criticism (warranted or not) just like here, and that’s fine.  Not everyone has to like us or what we do. No businesses can please 100% of the people 100% of the time no matter how hard they try because some people are just cranky, uneducated, and/or near impossible to please. We may not know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody.

At the same time, there is indeed irony in someone who tries to put Ripoff Report on blast, alleging information is “not correct or verified (sic), and very unsafe” by an individual that will, in the same argument cite to the BBB as some sort of an authority. Clearly this author must not understand how the BBB works or the author probably wouldn’t make such uneducated statements.  While the BBB has made themselves a household name thanks to years of marketing/branding, we are aware that the BBB has given positive ratings to businesses that aren’t even actually in business per local state Corporation Commission Records and have done other questionable things. Not convinced? Don’t just take our word for it. Feel free to watch 20/20 ABC News episode titled “Terror Group Gets “A” Rating From Better Business Bureau?” wherein 20/20 investigated and exposed one BBB for a “pay to play” scheme and conduct additional research on your own to form your own opinion. Yeah, like Wolfgang Puck in the 20/20 story, Ripoff Report isn’t going to pay the BBB and we don’t particularly care about their “ratings.” Oh, and as far as information being incorrect and what have you…umm, we didn’t write it so if it is false or whatever (remember there is always more than one side to a story) that’s not actually our fault…BECAUSE WE DIDN’T WRITE IT.

The Report author also says “They state that they cannot be touched legally.  Shame on them.  Or shame on YOU Rip Off Reports.“  Well, first, it’s Ripoff Report, not Ripoff Reports.  Secondly, it is true that the law protects websites from liability from third-party content. That Federal law, among other similar state laws, is Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act and it is the same law that protects, and thus allows, there to be sites like Facebook, Yelp, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, TripAdvisor, Glassdoor, Reddit, etc. that people all love to use. We have provided some information on this law on our Legal Issues page so that people can educate themselves before spewing uneducated word vomit. Funny how people always want to blame the middle man for what SOMEONE ELSE does.  Do you blame spoon manufacturers for the obesity epidemic too? After all, don’t people use spoons as a tool to feed themselves? And while we are at it, can’t spoons be used to cook drugs too? That’s it! Ban all the spoons. No more spoons for you!  You can sip your soup from the rim of the bowl and eat your ice cream with a fork – better get to it before it melts!.

Ah, and then the author states “You are denying the public the truth.  I have read through some of these complaints of various kinds and it shows that anyone with a vindetta (sic) can post anything they want...   This (sic) is not Facebook...  Or is it..  Even FB removes things upon request for various reasons.” More educated brilliance about the BBB, which also takes in third-party content. Gasp! Maybe not everything you read on the BBB is the truth? Maybe critics of Ripoff Report wrote something about Ripoff Report that was false or was otherwise misinformation because they are uneducated? Wait, what? You mean not everything posted on the internet is true?! You mean you ACTUALLY have to do research and get information from more than one location and that you have to actually research and determine whether the source of information is actually reliable?  Shut. The. Front. Door!  That’s just crazy talk! Who does that?!

And the author points out that Ripoff Report is “denying the public the truth.”  Really? Because we allow people to file Rebuttals and Comments to postings FOR FREE…so we don’t believe we are denying the public anything.  If anything, we make it easier for people to have the ability to tell their side of the story to help educate the public about the information they have.  And, Author Who Wants to Compare Ripoff Report to Facebook, we actually DO redact information in certain situations (one small example can be seen HERE) but apparently the author wouldn’t know that because he/she is apparently too busy making ASSumptions based upon misinformation and then spewing the same. You know what they say about opinions…and most of them stink.

Please, by all means “seek legal counsel.” Just make sure you get one that knows this area of law or you will likely get charged for demand letters and complaints that won’t get you anywhere and that WILL be a Ripoff.  Oh, and while you’re contacting the “various nationwide news shows,” be sure to tell them we said hi and want to know how we can help them with their next story! It’s amazing how frequently we are able to help those in media, government agencies, etc., with stories or catching bad guys, etc. with all of the “not correct” and “unsafe” information posted on our site.

It should be noted that most if not all the complaints listed with the BBB against Ripoff Report, are individuals and businesses who are listed on Ripoff Report. Their complaints with the BBB about Ripoff Report are complaining that Ripoff Report will not remove complaint about them. Nothing about Ripoff Report ripping anyone off.

Your Ripoff Report posting here “speaks for itself.  SHAME…” #MicDrop

HELEN now it’s my turn

AUTHOR: Consumer - (United States)

Helen let me ask you couple questions.    Do you have any idea how many complaint/review sites are on the Internet ???

 I personally think what Rip Off Report does is a great thing for the American people it helps call business is accountable for their actions 

 It also gives them the opportunity to post a rebottle telling their side of the story and how they respond to a complaint it’s been posted about them sets them above or below their competition

 I personally believe that Rip Off Report never remove anything that way  you or anyone else can’t claim that they remove something if you pay them cash 

 From what I’ve seen I have never seen anything removed from the website icy and I understand why they take Social Security numbers off of a report that somebody may post or certain information regarding helping somebody stock somebody 

 There are companies out there I’m sure that would be more than happy to pay to have something negative remove off of the Internet that might be true

 Some businesses out there love to hide they’re scamming Waze as to how they rip people off and they would love to have negative crap about them that’s true removed from the Internet so they can continue their scam

 Did you know that the founder of Rip Off Report has actually spend huge amounts of his own money trying to get a lady out of jail that was wrongfully convicted of murder because the prosecutor is going after her because he has a vendetta against her so he’s brought fraudulent information to court to get her convicted of something she never done and the founder of Rip Off Report has been spending large amounts of his own money trying to come to her defense and give her her removed out of jail

 You name me one other review site just one review site that’s on the Internet that’s actually tried to do something like this and help people that of been wrongfully convicted  i’m the founder of any website you choose that’s willing to spend their money to help get somebody out of jail that’s been wrongfully convicted name me just one !!!!!!!!!!!!!

 The founder Rip Off Report even has decided to start an abuse center for animals to take care of animals because are so many wack jobs out there in this country that are willing to spend time Harding gods creatures

 So don’t be so quick to judge Rip Off Report and the people that run it . 

I bet that you own a business that’s been exposed
