Woodland Hills, Ca (WiredPRNews.com) — Countless businesses and individuals find themselves victim to false criticism submitted to a website Ripoffreport.com that claims it is “helping you, the consumer”.
In most cases we don’t think it helps the consumer the way the website “rip-off report” does or supposed to. We believe that the “rip off report” website assurance should be changed to something like “write anything you want about whomever you want!” The reality is that many of the complaints made on small businesses found on ripoffreport.com are fabricated, frivolous, non researched and unverified.
Anybody with an email address can type a few words and ruin a business reputation and commerce by simply fabricating unconstructive statements. You can test this yourself by posting anything and see. If it is possible to post a completely fake complaint about a completely made up person, don’t you think it would be very easy to make a sham or false complaint about any reputable company? It could also be your business which you have established from ground up and worked hard to build a spotless reputation for yourself. Anyone of your competitors can simply post incorrect information without any proof or verification.
This is a terribly unsupervised bogus website. It is something that anyone can abuse and thousands are victims of this as Web Wise Media has also become a victim of. There should be some type of procedure or confirmation of doing business with someone necessary in order to post complaint or report about them. You can go on there right now and say a local restaurant is infested with roaches, or a local pharmacy is selling illegal drugs and there is no research being done or an investigation made.
How can the complaints on ripoffreport.com be taken seriously, if there is no authentication process or proof of the complaint being real? The concept of consumer complaint websites is understandable, but the ROR site is defeating the purpose. The purpose should be to find true and accurate information about companies you plan to do business with. In our judgment Rip off Report is useless to consumers and serves only as a playing field for trouble makers and extortionists.
