Rip Off Report Informative - Derogatory And False Reports
RICHARDSON, TEXAS -- I have been in the staffing industry for almost 20 years. I have contacted rip off report to remove the negative lies and false comments about myself and my companies that are now closed. They told me since my company was closed that I would not qualify for the resolution program. After much research we now know why. They can't demand monetary payments from me or my company if it's no longer in service. I refuse to respond to any comments made via rip off report but will respond to anyone that wants answers regarding Advanced Plus Personnel, Inc. dba HIVE Advanced Solutions. There was never any type of fraudulent activity via APPI OR HAS but rather fraudulent checks written on the company account by an individual in Houston, TX. Unfortunately, the account was closed by the bank without notice. All checks that were returned, were stamped returned due to fraud. People assumed fraud was made on our part. All checks have been paid by my company along with any fees that were charged. I offered to submit the documents to rip off report but they refused to remove the negative comments from their site. Anyone that knows me, Cindie Steger-Heit, knows that I do not have a long reputation of burning anyone but rather have helped a lot of staff in the 17+ year time frame I have been in this industry. This is a very unfortunate situation. It's bothersome to know that anyone can write anything about you even when you have proof that it's wrong. I have contacted Google, they have offered no help in removing these false and derogatory comments from their search engines but merely refer me back to Rip Off Report. Go Figure!!! SEO at its best.
Below is an interesting point I found on the internet. This is just one of many reports out there.
Last week, there were several excellent posts elucidating the many ways RipOff Report violates Google’s Terms of Service, and yet manages to stay on top of the Google search results pages. Rand, Chris Bennet, Will Critchlow, and Andy Beal did a great job of bringing RipOff Report out in the open for a serious discussion.
It is no secret that RipOff Report has been widely and universally accused of promulgating defamatory content and then extorting money from the victims of the very libel it publishes. This business model has made RipOff Report the subject of many lawsuits.
In my opinion enough said.
