What’s the truth about Rip-Off Report® Founder Ed Magedson?

Consider this quote which first appeared online in 2004:

“Ed Magedson of RipOffReport.com is a WANTED criminal that extorts individuals that have posted on RipOffReport.com and legitimate companies for money and he may be operating one of the biggest criminal enterprises ever created on the Internet … .”

The author of these words clearly has a strong negative opinion about Ed Magedson.  No question there.

But what about the facts? Are they true?  Is Ed Magedson really a “WANTED criminal”?  Is the Ripoff Report a “criminal enterprise” engaged in extortion?  What’s the REAL truth behind these allegations?

With so much written about Ed Magedson, the founder of the original consumer complaint website www.RipoffReport.com, it can be hard to separate the facts from the fiction.  Some people call him a hero, while others say he’s a criminal.  Obviously, someone is lying.  So what’s the real story?  Who is telling the truth?

We created this site to help answer that question.  Our goal is to help bring the truth to YOU, the educated consumer.  We know that some people will never agree with Ed Magedson and his mission to give a voice to the consumer.  We understand that.  Everyone is entitled to an opinion, but as the saying goes, “you are entitled to your own opinion, but not your own facts.”

    I too want to thank this brave solider, who has inspired me to be brave and tell the world my truth. THANK YOU for being a friend of JUSTICE! This takes courage, and most people just don’t have what it takes to tell the TRUTH.

  2. I cannot really know how to thank Ed enough — imagine a person strong enough, determined enough to stand up against everyone who would rip off the ‘common man,’ us lowly beings in the work forces of the Western World.
    The number of men, in the last 5 centuries, who have profited enormously, illegally, immorally or unethically from the lowly man, this number is countless and the motive is always the same
    more money. As for men like Ed their number is probably less than 10! Thank you, Ed, for your service to the populace!
