Misinformation - Complaint
It seems to me that the real rip off here is this organization “Ripoff Reports”. They claim to be advocates of good business practice yet post anonymous claims against any business as they are received. No verification, no investigation, no justification. They go so far as to admit this on their main page. While we encourage and even require authors to only file truthful reports, Ripoff Report does not guarantee that all reports are authentic or accurate.
They further state that they never remove reports, presumably even when those reports are false, slanderous, or just plain dishonest. Yet a quick search on Google shows several companies that guarantee ripoff Report removal, for a fee. Could these companies be somehow related? That would be extortion as I see it? Against federal law as I understand it. Could that be the reason the Ripoff Report server is located in Turkey? They do have a PO Box in Tempe, Arizona, perhaps a mail forwarding service of some type? I do not know, smells funny to me.
Rip offs by ripoffs.com seem to be quite a growing concern, so much in fact that their web page even has a section on why it would be foolish to sue them. Let me add my own opinions:
1. It is hard to sue a con man, they often have the angles figured out, it is their occupation.
2. It is impossible to sue a PO Box.
3. It’s very difficult and expensive to sue someone in Turkey if you live in the USA.
If you feel that you have been victimized by this or some other scam here are a few places that you can go. All are US government sponsored.
