Editor’s Note:  We thank our users for considering Ripoff Report as a source for information and providing warnings to the general public.  That being said, sometimes, after a review of the text, our team will determined that the content filed by an author appears to be serious in nature and therefore questionable and, as such, the Report is placed on hold for further investigations prior to publishing OR is otherwise flagged after publication and is placed into a Review Bin.  If and when Reports are flagged for these types of issues, especially when there are specific serious criminal allegations, we may, as we did here, try to follow up with the Author of the Report to obtain more information.  Our Terms of Service require that information posted be truthful and not defamatory and we are in no position to determine what information is true or false; the author affirms the truth of a posting prior to posting.  We understand that allegations made by an author may very well be true, and we respect an author’s right to Free Speech, but in order for the information to be published once it has been flagged, or for the information to be later (((REDACTED))) once flagged after prior publication, Ripoff Report may ask the author to provide some form of explanation or documentation to support their position.  Depending on the circumstances, if the author fails to respond or timely provide adequate notification, at the sole discretion of Ripoff Report, the Report may be considered “incomplete” and may not be approved or may be (((REDACTED))) to remove the serious allegations or otherwise questionable content from the Report and any Rebuttals thereto that mention such information – more for the purposes of making sure the author is standing behind their Report as we are not a judge and jury to determine the accuracy of evidence.  Redactions below may be due to the author’s failure to adhere to our Terms of Service and/or because the author failed to timely respond with an appropriate response to our inquiry.

PLEASED TO SEE SUCH EFFORTS?  YOU CAN HELP RIPOFF REPORT COMBAT THESE TYPES OF ISSUES:  Ripoff Report, as resources allow, is working towards combatting Cyberharassment, Cyberstalking, Cyberbullying and/or other problems such as what is generically called “revenge posts” that can be riddled with personal commentary and/or allegations that can be serious.   Ripoff Report would love to be able to timely address each and every review request we receive, however, this takes resources.  If you think this is a worth-while endeavor, we encourage you to make a donation so that we can expand the resources that we can devote to this project.  You can make a non-tax deductible donation by clicking HERE NOW or learn a little more by visiting our “Donate to our Efforts” page.  The more resources we have, the more resources we can devote to this project and other forward thinking and positive initiatives like it.

Mr Simon Smith is classed as an 'ethical hacker' while he might be able to get some old text messages back his ability to be able to produce results is limited. He speaks very confidently and will not hesitate to upsell himself as he also has some low level diplomas in other areas such as mediation and grief counselling. These will not come cheap and he will ask for tens of thousands of dollars, also providing legal opinions (he is not a lawyer). 

Mr Smith had his (((REDACTED))). When asked he claimed that he uses it to handle (((REDACTED))). When asked about why he was taking so much money apparently I became a 'vexatious' person. No offense Mr Smith but if you're taking tens of thousands in a month - at least provide me with why.

He has taken alot of money from people and when asked where final reports, etc are he has claimed on several occasions that his past clients have had 'mental issues.' As such he has refused to give finish the service even though they had paid for a service. 

Thousands and thousands of dollars was given to help with an investigation regarding a child. Not only is he badgering but also ended up making the situation worse, always claiming that he is correct and did not act on time. Because of his failings my case is now very far behind. He has also failed to write a final report of his findings for court.


Mr Smith is only good for low level 'cyber security' work but do not let him mediate or try and advocate for you as he will keep forcing legal opinions. You are better off hiring a REAL LAWYER.

#1 UPDATE EX-employee responds

To downgrade the repulse and restore and strengthen the reply, it amazes and amuses me the demur and scoff of the presumed divulged.

AUTHOR: Gabriella - (Australia)

I worked in student deactivation answering estimate presumption and answering team. My job was to browse the demur or disapprove and downgrade and excommunicate and try to never overwhelm students, maintaining a calm quiet repulse and restorative reverse atmosphere. I would scoff and shut my eyes to solidify or stifle and strengthen or amuse the wealth or neglect in these volunteer ignorant overlooked comments. If you unfold and reply to answer or glimpse over the surplus of embedded bolster you would be amazed at how to arbitrate such console tranquilize ignoring unloose rubbish people are to abide. One does forget the teem gives nothing to leave alone the enjoyment of giving of hard work, yet skim over v. & exp. & phr. v. of stifle and neglect of others for their enjoy.

Respond to this report!
