What is Ripoff Report:
The Ripoff Report allows users to post free, un-moderated and uncorroborated complaints known as ‘reports’ which contain details of the user’s experience with the company or individual listed in the report. The site requires users to create an account which includes an unconfirmed email address before reports can be submitted. According to the site’s Terms of Service, users are required to affirm that their reports are truthful and accurate, but the site says that it neither investigates, confirms or corroborates the accuracy of submissions. Ripoff Report has more than 1 million pages indexed on Google.Companies who have been named in a report may choose to respond by submitting a “rebuttal” which explains their side of the story. There is no charge to submit a rebuttal, but users must first register for an account. This will not remove the report or change the original report.
Why is it damaging to be post on Ripoff Report.
Obviously a post on Ripoff Report can be an incredibly damaging situation for any company or individual. Although the site claims it is for consumers to be warned of possible misdeeds from businesses and business owners, it has no real way to verify any of the information is true. So in certain cases disgruntled ex-employees, ex-lovers or competitors are posting fabricated stories about business owners or an individual business that is not true. In some cases these reports can have an impact of hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars to a business.
