Ripoff Report.com Informative - What happened to Ripoffreport.com?

Review by Disaster Worker on 2009-04-23
WAXAHACHIE, TEXAS -- I was trying to look up a phone number of a company that I think is trying to scam my elderly mother-in-law into buying a "vacation". When I Googled the number, 561-364-4140, there was a report posted on Ripoffreport.com, but it appears their website is down.

I know there's not a lot of love and respect with this site, but does anyone know what happened? Did it get shut down?

Could be just a server problem he's having. Anywhere from scheduled maintenance to someone finally grabbed them and threw them out a window. I remember a few years ago someone(s) launched a denial of service attack on the site and it shut it down for almost a week. He was pretty hot, offering I think it was around 50 grand as a reward for the perpetrator's heads.

He is down a lot. I suspect he pays peanuts for his servers, and as a result he gets peanuts.

Well, what should Ed expect? He likes to post libel a lot and refuses to allow businesses to post a rebuttal unless they shell out thousands of dollars.

In my opinion RipoffReport.com should go down and stay down. They are taking advantage of a good cause just to rake in undeserved money.

As for the potential vacation scam, don't bother with it. If her bank card information has already been received by the scammers, file chargebacks (if they already charged the card) and close the account.

Ed's sleazy worthless site is back up again and ready to steal money from anyone he can. The guy must wear teflon suits as he should have been in prison long ago.
